Is it worth it to repair the transmission? the car has 94000 miles, I am the original owner. WHat is a reasonable estimate for repai/replace?

car will start to overheat after driven 20 miles or so.alsothere is no heat in the vehicle. could this be the water pump.

sometimes the motor will turn over really good, but seems not to get fire. hook it to boosters and make the cables arc and it will start right up and run fine. i have a electrical problem. what is it? what do i do?

Timing belt went on my 2006 Dodge Stratus. They are gonna begin fixing it....1,300 job, in the morning. Was told it is an interference engine....researched it and that is the worse thing it could be. Then, couldn't find confirmation that it was an interference you guys know? Not sure if it is a V6 or a 2.7L V6

My stratus goes dead at red lights, sputters while Im driving and also the rpm s go up and down could this be the fuel filter

Need to know how much would it cost for a mechanic to find a leak in the evap system and fix it. I got a check engine light and I found out there is a leak in the evap system (Not the gas cap)

When a steering wheel is turned to the end of its travel, the power steering pump makes an objectionable hiss.

But my Stratus makes this noise when I turn the wheel at center when fluid is cold. Steering assist stops then comes back. Tire Pressure OK. Fluid is Full. NO LEAKS. When fluid warms there is still some hiss but it is much better.

I have a 2000 dodge stratus 2.5l v6, and the heater and air condition have all worked great until like almost 3 months ago. I have been running the air condition all summer long with no problems and all of the speeds have worked great. Then about 2 months after that, I noticed that the air condition would work, but only when you turned it on the high speed. Did not think anything of it, thought maybe it was just a fuse. Well towards the end of this summer I started to use my heat in which the first time I tried the heat it worked for about 15 mins, then started to blow cold air? I thought maybe it was my coolant, but I checked it and it is fine. Now the heat blows cold air all of the time, with me sometimes feeling small traces of heat coming out then going back to cold air. I dont think it is my thermostat because my temps have been fine, but I could be wrong.

how do you relace the head light switch. Do i have to pull the steering wheel of or not

My 5-speed manual transmission will not shift into any gear, including reverse, while the engine is running. When I turn off the engine, it will shift into all gears, including reverse. This is the second occurrence in less than 2 months; the first time, it was presumed that low transmission fluid was the culprit and everything seemed to be OK, but now . . . Any clue as to the fix for this?
