comment Correct AC Compressor for '04 Dodge stratus SE 2.7L 6cyl
It says pulley grooves are 6 - so the pulley should then have 5 ridges to fit the 5 grooves in your belt. I think you should be good. But it can be touch and go with aftermarket parts being matched correctly, and sometimes may take a couple of tries to get the correct match.

@Elton The through bolts is the single bolt - the bolt that goes through the rubber section of the mount and another bracket.

comment How do keyless ignition fobs charge?
Agreed, the battery should last a very long time. Most batteries are replaced by simply splitting the remote.. Look around the edges and you will typically find a notch to place a coin that you can trust to pry it open

comment RPM and duration to recharge a battery?
This is a terrible idea for your alternator. Charging a dead battery using the alternator puts tremendously more strain on the internal components... It can particularly burn through a set of brushes in the alternator very quickly (which here in the US you typically can't replace separately)

comment Tire compatibility
This can cause some bad problems... if the circumference is only a little off, vehicle speed won't read correctly. This could cause shifting problems and possibly damage on all wheel drive systems. ABS and traction/stability control could be adversely affected as well.

comment Volkswagen Golf MKV Fault log
There are a lot of possible scenarios. You need to compare graphs of MAF, O2s front and rear, throttle position, etc. to try and identify (and yes if you know what you are looking at you can even narrow down vacuum leaks and exhaust leaks with these graphs)

comment How many amps should my car pull while it is turned off?
Just fyi, typical drain key off (and the vehicle must sit for 30-45 minutes to ensure all modules go to sleep as well! ) is to be under 0.05 amps, or 50 milliamps.
