We had the same issue with squeaking I believe. I did some self diagnosis and determined that it was a ball joint ruuber boot had a rip in it and the ball joint was drying out. We also had it diminish when it rained but came right back. I just shot some WD-40 into the boot and the join and I know that is a temporary fix, but hasn't squeaked since then.
I realize this is a long overdue answer, but if anyone out there still has this issue, hope this post helps!
#490 of 490 1998 stratus es clunks in to gear, gauges go flat
Jul 09, 2013 (9:11 am)
I just got this car. Sometimes, it makes a big clunking sound when going into reverse and then when I put it into drive, the speedo stays at 0 and it feels like it's really struggling to go. We pulled out the battery and charged it. Now the battery light flashes for just a second. Before we did this, only the tach registered and all other gauges did not work. Help! When it does NOT clunk, it runs really well.
