SOURCE: oil pressure gauge reads 80 lbs display at 130

If they haven't moved it it should be behind the back of the intake manifold. Only other place I'd look is near the oil filter. You can change it. There is a special socket called an oil pressure sending unit socket, They come in a couple of different sizes. If unit is the "bell" type, you can use a wrench on it.

SOURCE: Changing the car battery for a 2004 SSR

- Put the truck where there is plenty of light, OR bring a shop light under there

- Put the truck on a surface you don't mind lying on (i.e. NOT gravel or mud). Bring a piece of carpet if you don't want to get your clothes dirty

- Bring your wrenches BEFORE you crawl under the truck

- Crawl under the truck, to the REAR of the battery (don't be wimpy about crawling under there if you have no lift. There is plenty of room)

- Unfasten the NEGATIVE terminal, and wedge it where it will NOT contact anything metallic on the truck (or better, TAPE it WELL). THIS IS A SAFETY and ANTI-DAMAGE PRECAUTION SO TAKE IT SERIOUSLY

- Unfasten the POSITIVE terminal, and wedge it where it will not contact anything metallic (or tape it)

- Undo whatever else might be holding the battery in the box (I cannot remember, and I like I said above, I am currently between SSRs)

- Here is the neat part: The battery tray swings down a few inches to enable easy removal and reinstallation of the battery! Swing it down!

- Remove battery

- Reverse above steps EXACTLY to reinstall. ESPECIALLY the order of the terminals.

Some additional "useful data":

Do not drop the battery . . . smile.gif

Do not try to open the doors with the battery disconnected. They cannot "index" the windows down without the battery, so you will tear the window glass past the window seals - not good.

Do NOT leave the key in the ignition before removing the battery - that will LOCK the key there until the battery is back in!

EXPECT some re-learning by the computer after the battery removal / reinstallation, about things like (a) clock time and (b) the ideal air/fuel ratios for your typical driving, as it loses all this kind of stuff when the battery is removed.

Should be located close to the oil filter. It will screw in like a spark plug. It has a harness plug. Easy to change, save yourself $70 in labor. You will need a fairly large wrench to remove

per the Haynes manual for the 95-05 Dodge Stratus on the 2.0L & 2.4L DOHC 4 cyl engines, the oil pressure sending unit is located at the left end of the rear side of the block. On 2.4L SOHC 4 cyl engines, the sending unit is located at the left end of the rear side of the block. On 2.5L & 3.0L V6 engines, the sending unit is located on the oil filter housing, on the front side of the block. On 2.7L V6 engines, the sending unit is located at the left end of the rear side of the block. To access it, remove the heat shield.

Thanks! and another question?

With the tranny flush, yes. It's possible that they may have knocked the connection loose or broke it at the sending unit. The unit is usually located on the side near the bottom ot the tranny. With the oil change I'm going to say no. The oil sending unit is generally located on the driver side, center of the engine block near or under the exhaust manifold, or on the front of the block towards the top. Unless they moved them on me, it shouldn't be anywhere close to the drain plug on the oil pan, and there no way that they should get near the oil sending unit when changing the oil, unless the sending unit is near the oil filter, and GMC generally doesn't put the two near each other for this reason. Just thought of something. Are the gages individually replaceable, or are they all built into one display unit?
