Is the alternator connected to the engine on a 2000 dodge stratus?
It is mounted on the engine and connected to the battery.
The 2003 Dodge Stratus came optionally equipped in a 3.0L V6 engine. The first step is the disconnection of battery cables. Second, the serpentine drive belt can released and removed. Last, the two bolts holding the alternator to engine mount can be removed and replacement. The OE alternator for the 3.0L application is AC Delco #3341420.
