Removal of oil pan 2003 dodge stratus

To get the oil pan off of your 2003 Dodge Stratus 2.7L engine, you must remove the following:
> Engine oil dipstick and tube
> Engine oil filter
> Structural collar (metal plate that bolts on the bottom between the oil pan and transmission housing)
> Exhaust cross-under pipe
> Torque converter housing cover
> The lower bolt attaching the A/C compressor to the oil pan
> Oil pan fasteners, Oil pan and gasket
Please note that attempting to remove the exhaust cross-under pipe can be a real challenge if you do not have the equipment to heat the nuts/studs that fasten it to the manifolds.
Non-availability of the required equipment in this case may mean that you will have to remove the exhaust manifold(s) to drill out broken studs.

Filter for transmission located for a 2001 dodge stratus.

jack up the car and put it on stands. remove the drivers side plastic shield next to the transmission. remove the 10mm bolts from the rear and sides of the trans and loosen the ones in front. keep a pan under the trans as you will drain the fluid this way. once you have the fluid out, remove the remaining bolts and drain the last of the fluid. The filter is visible under the trans. Be sure to remove the o-ring in the hole. Replace the filter and make sure it seats in place. Scrape off any silicone gasket material and install the pan gasket and pan. The bolts torque to 165 inch pounds or about 13 ft/lbs. Add in 4 quarts of transmission fluid. Start the car, keep your foot on the break and shift the car into each of the gears to fill up the trans piping with fluid.

Remove oil pan on 98 dodge stratus? The mount bar is preventing me from reaching the back two bolts. Is there a special tool or do you have to remove the transmission?

Most cars today you have to raise the engine somewhat to remove the oil pan. To do so you'll need to first support the engine (use a lift if you can) and unbolt the engine mounts. Before lifting look at any wires, hoses or such which could be of issue if the engine were raised. If so remove or move as required. Once this is done you may be able to raise the engine (slightly) to access the bolts and remove the pan.
I hope this mauy have helped,

Transmission toque specs

The spec is 12 ft lbs of torque. Use a an even pattern when you tighten the bolts, this assures the gasket will not be damaged and create another leak.
