2006 Dodge Stratus Sxt 2.4L

Asked by Aug 05, 2014 at 04:20 PM about the 2006 Dodge Stratus SXT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Replaced thermostat, thermostat housing, and radiator cap, and car is still leaking, ran hot yesterday and seen no water. Filled it up, parked in garage, and water was dripping. I am trying to find a image of what's there, but unable to, I removed the tire and it looks like its coming from the water pump, but I'm unsure. Where can I get a diagram without having to purchase a $30 manual. I'm relaying this into the site for my dad... HELP ME... I am fixing both of my vehicles at one time and trying to go the cheapest route, and my dad can do anything, just never messed with a car.. He's changing out the transmission on my 92 Gmc truck now, and replacing all lines that are dry rotted, etc..

1 Answer

Started tearing it apart and realized it was a lil too much, the pullys, and lack of space to work. I realized the problem was the seal in the water pump, sealent would not work, replacing water pump, timing chain belt, and gasket. $230 in labor seems good considering I would be working on it for days, and have major headaches and frustrations.. Thanks anyways, now back to my GMC..
