Question about 2005 Dodge Stratus
Not sure where to Post this But I am having an oil issue with my car its a 96 Dodge stratus 2.0 ES, 5 speed I took it in for an oil change no oil registered on the dipstick , they changed the oil and we noticed it pouring out apperas to be coming from above the oil filter on the passenger side Husband changed the valve gasket and that seemed to help however its still dropping some not pouring out anymore , anyone have any suggestions on what else it might be, or where to look have been told it could be the camshaft gasket, but how hard is it to change that gasket and how do I found and get to it ?
Any help is apperciated .
Hi my name is Allen!
The gasket you are referring too is behind the timing belt cover next to the engine, remove that cover and pop out the old seal behind the camshaft sprocket at the very top of the engine, lube it heavily and you can push it with your fingers, becareful not the bend it are it will still leak, you must get it all the way in or it will pop out again.
