SOURCE: how to remove the oil pan for access to the oil

Place a jack with a block of wood on it under the oil pan, and loosen the engine mounts, on either side of the motor. Once those are loose, jack the engine up a few inches (10 or so, if you can), and get out from under the truck.

Lay blankets on either fender, and lay a 2x4 or 4x4 across the engine bay. Wrap a chain or strap around it several times, and connect it to any 2 points on the engine on opposite sides, to support the engine so you can remove the jack.

Drain the oil from the vehicle, using the oil pan's drain bolt. Remove the bolts all the way around the pan, and tap the sides of it with a rubber mallet or piece of wood to release the gasket seal. It will fall.

Installation is the reverse with a new gasket. Be sure to put gasket sealer in any sharp corners and clean the pan thoroughly while it's out.

You should also take this time to check for damage or wear on the bottom end of the engine, including metal shavings or sparkles/flecks in the oil pan.

Location of oil drain plug on 2003 montero sport


You will have to get under the vehicle and find the oil pan directly under the engine. On the oil pan you will locate the bolt to drain the oil pan. They usually are at the lowest point on the oil pan so that all the oil is drained from the pan when removed.

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.

Replac 2003 monte carlo oil pan gasket


To remove the oil pan on any vehicle, first remove anything obviously in your way...starter, exhaust pipe etc. Then disconnect the engine mounts and raise engine to gain sufficient clearance between frame and pan. You cannot support the engine from under the pan so either use a fixture above the engine or put blocks between mounts and engine to support it. After all rail bolts have been removed, remember that the oil pump pickup will interfere with removal somewhat but pan can be maneuvered around it. Anything preventing you from getting the pan out will then need to be removed or moved as they are identified. Be careful when raising the engine that you do not break anything above it as it comes up.
