2004 Dodge Stratus Repair Question
2004 Dodge Stratus SXT Vibration Noise
maybe some thing is loose? if you put it in park it quits?
Correct, it only does this when in drive and for the first 2 to 3 seconds of coming to a stop. I would think if something was loose it would rattle more at higher RPMs.
do you think engine is NOT running smoothly when this happens?
Engine is running well. I hace personally kept up wiyh all maintenance. I'm starting to believe it is related to my brake system. It seems most related to this and is almost a grinding noise and vibration. Possibly the rear drum brakes or master cylinder? Thr car has good stopping power that doesnt seem affected at all by this problem.
The fact that it only occurs when in drive makes me think it has to do with the torque converter?
hard to say from here. maybe local mechanic can drive and diagnos?
Sounds to me like the balance shaft belt and if it is the car needs immediate attention as the balance shaft belt is behind the timing belt and that is an interference engine
