Absolutely its a common problem with the Quest the filter housing sits low with the filter and if you bottom out it can break. Fit a few myself. Best option go to the junk yard and buy the oil filter unit/housing unit. Just a few bolt and a seal and the job is done. Good Luck

Front bumper guard pulled loose on curb. Missing plastic push pins. One corner cracked slightly. Looks like it can be snapped back into place. Any suggestions?


New push pins and drill a couple hole on both sides of crack to install zip ties this will hold or you need to replace the cracked piece (bumper cover etc)

How to change oil filter housing,2001 dodge stratus


The Oil filter "housing" is not only that, it has a small oil cooler that uses the radiator coolant circuit to reduce the oil temps. It is easy to change, but not as easy to get as it is not a commonly sold ?tem. Is goes to the engine block with a stub threaded nipple and large nuts. Amclaussen.

Oil Pan on Motor?

If it is steel, remove the pan & silver
braze the threaded piece, that is only
spot welded on

Never saw a bolt break only the threaded piece inside the pan

Explain if it is aluminum or steel & where the bolt is now

May have to get a used oil pan.

I have a jeep liberty05 and my oil pan drain plug was put in by last owner so tightly i had to use an irwin east out in doin so with my impact the inside threade piece that the plug screws into broke off...


YOU NEED TO BUY CORRECT SIZE NEW OIL DRAIN PLUG. YOU TO KNOW YOUR THREAD SIZE ON NEW OIL DRAIN BECAUSE YOU NEED THE RIGHT TAP AND DRILL BIT TO CENTER DRILL THE BROKE BOLT IN SIDE OIL PAN YOU NEED A CENTER PUNCH TO PUNCH A SMALL ENOUGH TO START THE DRILL BIT DEAD CENTER OF BROKE BOLT.OIL PAN NEED TO BE REMOVED TO DRILL HOLE STRAIGHT.THIS IN NOT A EASY JOB.EITHER YOU REPAIR OR DAMAGED OIL PAN DRAIN PLUG HOLE. YOU DRILL BIT HAS TO STRAIGHT WHILE DRILLING HOLE DEAD CENTER OF BROKEN BOLT YOU NEED TO MEASURE LENGHT OF OIL DRAIN PLUG BOLT. THEN USE A PIECE TAPE ON DRILL BIT WRAP A PIECE TAPE AROUND DRILL BIT THE DEPT YOU NEED TO DRILL THROUGH BOLT. LIKE I SAY THIS JOB TAKE SKILL AND A STRAIGHT HAND. BECAREFUL WITH DRILL AND WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES. DONT DO THIS FIX IF YOU NOT SURE OF MECHANIC SKILLS YOU WILL EITHER DAMAGE THE OIL PAN OR FIX THE PROBLEM.

My wife mitsubishi stop. it ran hot and the battery is dead. could that mean that a belt broke?


Yes. If you loose belts you will loose water pump that keeps coolant moving and also the alternator which keeps charging the system. Less familiar with Galant belt setup but sounds like both parts are on same belt and has snapped. Don't drive until belt is replaced unless you want to buy a new motor or head gasket (not cheap)
