Question From urquhart87 on 2001 dodge stratus rt transmission

I was wondering if a 2000 dodge stratus 2.5L transmission would fit in my 2001 dodge stratus rt 3.0L?

Response From Discretesignals Top Rated Answer

This one is simple. No they don't interchange.

The 2000 either has a 41TE 4 sp or an A404 3 sp
The 2001 has a F4A51



2000 Dodge Caravan-Interchangeable parts

Question From jamieroden1 on 2000 Dodge Caravan-Interchangeable parts

Does anyone know if the parts for a 2000 dodge caravan (base model) would be interchangeable with a 1998 dodge grand caravan? any help would be very much appreciated!

Response From Hammer Time

There are some parts that will interchange for 10 years and some that change within the same year.

Response From jamieroden1

Do you know of any way i could find out what things would be the same without searching for each individual part? We have a 2000 caravan and found a 98 grand caravan for really cheap that says it has a radiator leak and a power steering hose leak, so i thought that maybe at least some of the bigger things would maybe interchange, and between the 2 we could have a really nice one :) and thank you so much for your response!

Response From nickwarner

Off the top of my head I want to say they would both work, but your best best would be to look up the part on OReilly, NAPA or Autozone's website for both vehicles and see if the part numbers match. With the power steering hose, forget new just buy a used one. This is a pain to do once, you don't want to do it twice. You'll also need an 18mm crowfoot flarenut wrench, various extensions and a willingness to lose skin from your knuckles. If any children are in the area you are working in, make sure they have earplugs so they don't learn as many new words for their vocabulary.

You meant that the other way around, right Nick?

94 dodge spirit, recently my heating and air conditioning both stopped working on my 94 dodge spirit. just before this happened, whenever I would turn either my heating or air there would be a wining noise. any ideas?Could I fix this myself?Thanks, Laurie

Response From Double J Top Rated Answer

You mean the fan isn't blowing anymore ,correct?

From what you describe,the blower motor has failed and needs to be replaced.

If you have some basic tools and some mechanical skills ,its definitely a Do- it yourself repair.

flywheel help

Question From teri on flywheel help

I replaced a engine on my 05 dodge Durango 4.7l, with a 05 dodge ram 1500 4.7, but engine wont turn over I replaced the starter with ram 1500 starter while I have it torn apart do I need to replace the flywheel also with a dodge ram flywheel . I really need help on this one.

Response From Discretesignals

Which transmission did the Ram have? Is the Ram 4wd or 2wd? Is the Durango 4wd or 2wd? Did you compare the flywheels to be sure they are the same? They should be, of course.

When you mean turn over, do you mean the starter isn't activating or the starter is activated, but doesn't spin the crank?

I don't think the starter from the Ram will work on the Durango because it is bolted to the passenger side on the Durango and on the driver's side on the Ram and they both have different drive gears.

Durango starter clocking and gear:

Ram 1500 Auto starter:


Response From teri

Update-e advices -- I wish to thank all for their in put it was helpful , I was finally informed there is no way for that engine to work since the starters are opposite sides so I have to return it and request one for the durnago. Again thanks or your help

Response From teri

thanks for the help to answer your question they are both 2WD, and the starter activates but dosen"t spin the crank. The clerk at the part store recommended I put on the ram starter since I am in putting the ram eng. I hope he is right

Response From Discretesignals

I have a feeling the Ram's starter on the Durrango isn't going to work.

Response From teri Top Rated Answer

I need help with this problem as I stated before replaced an engine in a 05 dodge Durango with a 05 dodge ram 1500 same engine 4.7 all that was changed was the oil pan a suction pump and bolted to the trans ok now the starter activates but wont turn engine over tried switching starter from Durango to dodge ram it wont fit. hot battery and new starter applied

Response From kev2

you installed the 05 ram engine did the starter come with the engine?
you have NOT switched flywheels have you?

hopefully replacement engine was NOT a junk yard find-
I would confirm the dodge ram is what it was claimed to be- year model etc...

Response From teri

the dodge ram engine was purchases used on line they confirmed the year, model etc. it didn't come with a starter, I am using my old flywheel since it didn't come with one

Response From nickwarner

Before you play musical starters, have you tried putting a breaker bar on the crank pulley and seeing if this engine is locked up? Online can be a great place for deals but its also a great place for scammers to unload junk on people and take their money.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

So right Mr. Nick. Seller confirmed the thing so it must be right. Guess not huh?


Response From Discretesignals

Just curious, but what happened to the original engine? Did you have the same issue with the starter on the old engine?

Response From teri

the starter worked fine in old engine

Question From zieman on dodge neon

ihave a problem with my 99 dodge neon 2.0 dohc cylinder #4 no compression blew timing belt replaced wont idle smokes

Response From zieman


Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

No doubt an interferrence engine and what happens is valves become still while pistons continue even a few turns more and bend them up as they aren't out of the way.

You could test by setting a cylinder on TDC and blow air in spark plug hole and bet it blows out exhaust or back to intake or both!

Zero compression is a strong clue of the damage. Valve job would be in order and hope that's all,
