My car has 128000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hey there. Your Dodge Stratus should have two main belts. One that runs the power steering pump and one that runs everything else (i.e. crankshaft, alternator, A/C). If you need help with a serpentine belt replacement, a certified technician from YourMechanic can perform this service at your home or office.
