Filter installed correctly? What did you use for fluid ? Better be Mopar ATF4, or your asking for problems.

Automatic change 2001 dodge stratus r/t transmission filter


you have to take out all the bolt on the trans pan ( start at one corner with a oil drain container under that corner because the more bolts you take out the fluid will come out faster (about 1-2 gallons total) ounce you have the pan off the just wiggle as you pull down on the old filter and push the new in (all the way in) replace your pan gasket and put bolts back it. refill the trans through the trans dip stick

How much trans fluid needed after filter change on 1997 dodge caravan


My 1997 Caravan manual states that the trans fluid capacity is 8.5 quarts. However, in the transmission oil change section, it says to drop the pan, drain the oil, replace the filter and add 4 quarts of new fluid. This tells me that the torque converter is not draining so you are in fact, only changing "half" of the transmission fluid.

Problem shifting from second to third. Not shifting into third, RPM's just elevate. No code!


Check Fluid Levels when car is warm and running in neutral. Next, change the pan gasket and filter and fluid. NEVER let a shop do a T TECH Transmission Service. That sucks it out backwards and destroys the filter and will kill the transmission. make sure you drop the pan and replace the gasket and filter and the fluid.

Cant find transmission filter on 2003 Dodge stratus Coupe.


The filter is inside the transmission. You need to take the pan off the bottom then you can replace the filter and the pan gasket.

no drain plug, no car or truck has had a drain plug for decades, reason? they want the filter changed with the fluid, so they make you pull the trans pan to drain the fluid, one very messy job.
