Take it to auto zone and have the codes read free. This will tell you what quit probably the speed sensor which is on the trans. I have this same problem from my 1995 Stratus, I've been told it's the speed sensor, there are 2 sensors, (input and output) they run about $20 at an autoshop.. trying to find where there located with out the manual is another thing! ;) Anyone? I would say it is the output speed sensor located on the transmission. If your standing in front of the car looking at the car it would be on your right hand side. There is 2 on that side and its the top one. I changed mine by reaching up from underneath the car. Try installing a new gas filler tube gas cap. My "check engine" light illuminated, the transmission started shifting erratically, and my cruise control would not work. I installed the new gas cap and it fixed the problem. It seems that they all work in conjunction with the vacuum system--which the old "O-ring" on the original gas cap had gone bad and theere was a leak in the vacuum system.
Bad speed sensor.
change the speed sensor located at the end of the tail shaft on passenger side of tranny
When working on a car engine, it is important to have an engine diagram. A Dodge Stratus engine diagram can be found in a Dodge forum online, or in the repair manuals at Auto shops.
Nope, bet it was the other way around... Your speedometer stopped working and your check engine light came on. A broken speedometer (don't know what car so I can't pinpoint it) will cause a whole bunch of codes.
check your speedometer sensor located back left of engine bay on top of the transmission
the speedometer on my 97 toyota camary stopped working and the check engine light came on why
There are several possibilities why the speedometer is not working. The VSS, vehicle speed sensor may have failed or become unplugged. The speedometer may have failed, or the ECM, engine control module, may have failed or there could also be wiring issues.
I think you need a speed sensor
The check engine light only comes on for something that affects emissions
2002 Tahoe speedometer quit working and trans will not shift, ABS light on. NEW ANSWER: You need to have the engine and transmission scanned with an OBDII engine scanner so you can find out what speed sensor has gone bad / quite working.
You need to have it checked for codes to know what to diagnose.
Yes it can cause erratic shifting. But not an engine miss fire. You need to find out why the engine is missing and running bad and when you fix that problem then I'm sure the transmission will start working and shifting correctly.
I had to replace the engine in my 2001 stratus SE and it ran me 900 dollars.
No , the DOHC engine is not an interference engine ( but the SOHC is an interference engine ) in a 2002 Dodge Stratus 2.4 liter
You need to have the system checked for trouble codes. You will most likely have a speed sensor code. If an auto it will be the output sensor on the front driver side of the trans. If a manual it will be the sensor on the right axle shaft housing.
The engine size in a 96 Dodge Stratus is a 2.4 liter could have a 2.0L. It should say it right on the engine.
maybe your speed sensor is bad you will get a check engine light on the dashboard too.
where is the engine speed sensor located on a 1999 dodge stratus 2.4 l
The engine computer handles the voltage regulation on a Stratus.
I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM AND IT STARTED TODAY I NOTICED IN MINE THERE IS NO FIRE IN MY #2 AND #3 PLUGS DID YOU GET THAT ANSWERED IF SO PLEASE HELP ME I CAN NOT START MINE ANYMORE AND I GET TOLD IT IS 1 OUT OF A MILLION THINGS
The 1987 Celebrity uses an electronic speedometer. There is a VSS(vehicle speed sensor) on the trans-axle that could have failed. The speedometer itself may have failed, the ECM (engine control module "computer") may have failed or there could be wiring issues.
a broken dip stick wont cause hard shifting... the engine does not do the any shifting... your problem would be the transmission... check transmission....
No, they are quite a bit different.
