Does the valves mess up in a 1996 dodge stratus when it jumps time?

If you have a 2.4 L you may be ok since the pistons are dished to prevent damage due to an out of time condition. "Cast aluminum, single-size pistons have pop-up tops with valve cut outs allows broken-belt valve clearance. Piston pins are held in place by press fit to the connecting rods, which differ from those in the 2.0 liter engine only in length." see: http://www.allpar.com/mopar/24.html Good luck, br1ght

Your distributor is probably bad.

The fuel pump relay on a 1996 Dodge Stratus 2.4 liter is located underneath the hood. The relay will be in the integrated power module.

No, it is an interference engine. I know this because I just pulled the heads on one that broke the timing belt and the valves are bent and/or broken.

The 1996 has 12 valves, they did not start putting the 24 valves in the pickup until 1998.5. Hope this helps.

NO. ONLY 1996 TO A 2000 WILL WORK. THERE IS STILL SMALL CHANGES TO DO BETWEEN THOSE YEARS. HOPE THIS HELPS.

The sensor is located inside the distribuitor

Remove the cap on the valve cover and pour it in there.

It's out of time. You need to make sure the crank and cam gears are in alignment before installing the belt. If the belt was broke, the valves could be bent.

Front of the engine, behind the motor mount.

If your 1996 Dodge Stratus wonร•t start you can try to jump start the car. There is no reset button like a computer. You can recharge your car battery with a jump start.

It is mounted to the backside of the fuse block inside the vehicle.

I changed mine on 1996 stratus 2.4l 4cylinder it is underneath on right side and has a rubber hard cover on it .

no the 1996 -1998 is the same then the 2000-2004 is the same so it will not fit

It varies between year model and trim package and transmission. A 1996 Dodge Stratus with the base trim package weighs 3015 lbs. with an automatic transmission, and 2908 lbs. with a manual transmission. A 2006 Dodge Stratus with the SXT trim package and an automatic transmission weighs 3182 lbs.

Requires more information, what size is the engine and is it an automatic or manual transmission?

Bring to a shop that has an ABS scanner to determine the problem

Without more information this cannot be answered accurately

According to the service manual the gap should be 0.050" or 1.25 mm.

I had a 96 Stratus that would do that, and it turned out to be that the starter was bad.
