Shaky noisy acceleration!

Asked by Apr 06, 2011 at 03:18 PM about the 2004 Dodge Stratus SXT Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My childrens mother just bought a 2004 Dodge Stratus from Roseville Toyota. It is very noisy and vibrates strongly when she accellerates. We've taken it to the dealer and had them check it. They say everything is normal. Does this happen to anyone else? Also, the exhaust has an open gap in it. Like in between the exhaust manifold header pipes and the muffler. They say that is normal too. Does anyone else have that opening?

that gap does not sound normal and you could have a bad engine mount, and or transmission mount

its an engine mount your gunna have a cup that the engine is sitting it that its gunna pop off probly when you go from reverse to drive or first if its standard like mine, my engine just did that three days ago i would also cheack everything else around your bell housing alot of shops leave to rear cover plate off exposing the back side of your fly wheel that can also cause some noise during acceleation and the opening in your exuast is no where near normal forget that shit thats a failed inspection right there
