COULD BE LOSS OF ALL TRASMISSION FLUID, BROKEN HOSE, BLOWN PUMP,BURNT TRANSMISSION RINGS( HOW DID THE TRANNY OIL SMELL?) BURNT TRANNY FLUID OR A COMBINATION OF ANY OF THE ABOVE. IF IT JUST QUIT, YOU PROBABLY HAVE A SERIOUS PROBLEM THAT WILL REQUIRE A REBUILD OR A SALVAGE TRANSMISSION FROM A LOCAL WRECKING YARD. THE LATTER BEING THE CHEAPEST AND AT TIMES THE BETTER DEAL ALL AROUND, TIME WISE AND MONEY. VERSUS A REBUILD THAT REQUIRES NEW PARTS, BANDS, PUMP, SEALS AND ON AND ON PLUS HOURS OF LABOR TO FIX EQUALS ONE BIG BIG BILL!BEING A 2001 A TRANNY FROM A WRECKING YARD ISN'T GOING TO HAVE THAT MANY MILES ON IT EITHER SO YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND SOME PRETTY DECENT ONES. THAT'S THE ROUTE I'D GO, BUT YOU'RE FREE TO CHOOSE EITHER CHOICE. I DON'T ENDORSE OR CONDEMN EITHER ONE, JUST POINT OUT THE GOOG AND THE WEAK IN EACH FOR YOU TO DECIDE! GOOD LUCK!

i had the same problem on thursday. luckily for you this is a non-interference engine. they call it. that means the valves revert back to netural positioning when the belt snaps. youre car did the same exact thing as mine. it is a pain in the *** to change though. you gotta take the engine just about halfway out and go up and down, up and down with a jack underneath the oilpan to position it to get to all of the screws and bolts and ****. if you are not mechanically inclined, have a friend do it or pay a shop. the shop will cost you though, im pretty sure a couple weeks pay. i recommend getting rid of your stratus, i use to love them till i had to start working on mine all the time and they are such **** built cars its not funny. i take a door panel off and **** falls apart, its stuff like that that makes me hate mine. hope this helped, have a good day!
