the engine froze due to weather and there wasn't any anti-freeze in the engine causeing it to break the water pump and timing belt and after replacing the timing belt and the water pump the engine still wont crank. could that be caused by the head gasket being blown
and begin to buck if you try to accelerate. shut it off and start again and it runs good again. never know when it's going to happen.

throttlebody is where it started so master cylinder windshield and fuse biox are toast
The brake lights work in the first drive I take to school and then after I park the brake lights do not work anymore. Could it be possible because something is getting wires wet from all the water and snow on the roads?

My instrument panel lights go off and on randomly. Fuses have been checked. Nothing there is wrong. What might cause this? Dealer says it needs instrument cluster replaced, at $1,000. That is too much I think.
I don't see an icon in the review section.
My daughter's car has been making a rattling/whirring noise while it idles and upon quick deceleration. It has been doing it off and on, but frequency seems to be increasing.
A week ago, a mechanic I know told me I needed to replace my struts and strut mount . I've found the struts for my car but not the strut mount itself. None of the chain auto parts stores and stores online carry the strut mounts What did come up was a strut mounting kit with a like a cone shaped rubber/plastic piece and looks like two washers about 2 to 4 inches across. Also, a strut mount did come up but it was for the Stratus coupe. Yesterday, I found an auto parts website that had something called a shock bracket (Looks way different from the strut mount for the coupe) and there was an diagram with the bracket along with the strut, etc. The price of the strut mount was $211.00 each. My opinion (I'm not an mechanic), the bracket shown in the diagram looks study and can last a lifetime, something you don't replace unless you get into an accident. Has anyone replaced struts along with the strut mounting kit, without replacing the shock bracket? Personally, I don't want to pay over $400.00. unless I have to.
It's a 2000 Dodge Stratus. 2.4L engine. Brake lights work when park/headlights are off. When park/headlights are on and you press brake, all lights turn off in the rear. Would that be a brake light switch, ground problem, or both?? The 3rd brake light works just fine.
I need a step by step to replace water pump and timing belt may be a video either way is fine
May be a video link if anyone's has one please thank you
