It appears that the threads are stripped on the bolt or pan. To remove the bolt, try having a helper put a couple of screwdrivers (flat) between the bolt and pan, and while you turn the drain bolt to loosen, have them apply pressure downward on the bolt. If you have a carpenters flat pry bar, that would probably work even better to apply downward pressure to help remove the bolt. Next, you'll have to go to a parts store to get a drain plug that is made to replace one w/ bad threads. Let me know how you do. countrcurt0

Pull outward on the plug with a good pair of pliers while removing it.. (counter clockwise).

I just changed the oil in my '98 dodge stratus and now the oil just drains out. I think it might be the rear camshaft seal but I'm not 100% sure. Anyone know how to replace that seal or any suggestions...


sound like drain plug is out or loose or leaking around oil filter at gasket did you remove all of the old oil filter gasket and did you prelube the gasket by putting oil on your finger and firmly seating the gasket

97 neon oil leak


Solution: Maybe.

Rear main seal is probably the problem.

My 1997 Dodge Neon has this same problem. My father-in-law (who used to be a mechanic) checked the car for me and found the rear main seal needs replacing.
