Pep Boys are checking on my car, they say it looks like the timing belt. My car is a 2005 dodge stratus sxt (vin # 1B3EL46X05N538752), I don't know if my car has an interference or non-interference engine, as they are telling me it may cost me over $3,000 to repair.

how do i go about removing and replacing alternator on a 1998 dodge stratus es

Hi: I have a 2002 Stratus 2.7 engine. Today kicked out a PO420 code, bank 1. No others. Talked to several local mechanics who all referred me to "Joe" who they considered to be an expert. I wanted to see if he could pin down if cat was bad, or bad O2 sensor. His normal diagnostic charge is $90 but he refused to do it, says would waste my money. He says this vehicle/engine, I have to go to dealer and have both converters and all 4 sensors replaced with factory parts. Says for this vehicle/engine, after market parts won't work. What say ye ? thanks, Mark

I have just replaced the water pump and put ti back together and ran it. it runs great but after ten min, a clapping noise started to happen. Timing marks were all on, there is no problem with the engine, however i did put the end of a coat hanger in the tensioner the get the oil out and reset the tensioner, i may have damaged the little ball valve at the end of the tensioner? If the valve is not working what doe's that do to the tensioner, not shur if thats the problem or not like i said the engine runs good!!
