Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

problem #2

Stratus SE 2.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles


This is a common problem with all dodge models and the factory has to come up with a reliable way to correct or at least report possible fix's to the general public just to save face. I had to replace cam and crank sensors with factory parts only.

ok, i purchased a used 2004 Dodge Stratus this past Saturday, havent EVEN had it a good week yet, and I felt some jerking when i turned on the heat. So i cut the heat off to see if that would eleviate the problem and it DID NOT. I havent gotten any tune ups yet but my engine light came on and blinked the first time and went off, about a hour later, the engine light came BACK ON and stayed on. The car is very quiet no clunking, banging or nothin but when i drove it home from school, it started to jerk and act like it wanted to stall alittle and the engine light stayed on.

Anyone had this problem, i need help this is my DREAMCAR, and i plan on drivin it ALOT LONGER than just a wk for what i paid for it. THANKS... PLEASE HELP
