The 2.4L Mopar disaster
By Jimmie on


1995 Dodge Stratus 4dr Sedan


This was the first year for the
Chrysler made 2.4L engine and the head
gaskets had to be replaced every 20 -
30K miles. Don't check the oil and you
lose the engine. Head gaskets were
scarce in '99 and my engine burned out
at 90K miles and had to be replaced
with a used one which was almost
impossible to find. It took over a
month to find a good replacement
engine. It just had it's second head
gasket replaced approx. 50K mi. The
dealer didn't even question the
request; in and out in 8 hrs. and $800;
thank you very much!

Best Features

Like the cab forward design.

Worst Features

Better engine head gasket seal design. If this was corrected later I don't know about it.
