Engine Performance problem
2004 Dodge Stratus 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 102000 miles
My 2004 Dodge Stratus SXT Coupe model is having problems with a rough idle. It still has not stalled on me yet, but I feel that problem is nearly approaching. I have had the car for the majority of its history. I have kept up with routine maintenance and this problem has just recently started to occur. If I turn on my A/C, this problem intensifies. Sometimes the idle will jump when just sitting still at a light, and mostly it occurs during acceleration from idle and then is no longer a problem once moving and in gear. I am thinking this may be a timing belt issue (something I have not replaced) or maybe a problem with dirty, gunky valves. I was hoping for some suggestions or if anyone else has had a similar issue. Thanks.
have the same problem?
