Question about 2004 Dodge Stratus
We swerved into a ditch and the Gas Tank Shield broke off. We have the part and would like to know if it is fixable and what steps would we need to take in order to fix it. The part that came off was a metal plate of sorts found between the 2 rear wheels by the gas tank
Put the car on a hoist and check around and you will find bolts where the shield was fixed. you may be able to reposition the shield and use tex screws net to the existing holes to refix the shield. use care and check for cables on the inside that may be damaged.

The problem is with the sensor inside the gas tank since the method of indication used is by passing an electric current & the resistance to that current is a measure of level of liquid in the tank , i.e.
the gauge consists of two parts:
However if this float gets stuck to the bottom of the tank or a leak fills up the float making it sink to the bottom of the tank, thus always indicating 'E' for empty.........................sodeep

not so much a common problem as it is just! a problem go to a local salvage yard and buy a new filler neck and install it!! its really simple just take the 4-5 screws out of the top filler housing and take a hose clamp off the vent house underneath and then wiggle/pull REALLY!! hard outwards on the neck till it comes out of the tank

Hopefully your not attempting to replace a fuel pump in this vehicle or the tank its self?
There is no drain plug you have to purchase a fuel extractor pump. They are manual or electric. You put pump hose in tank threw fill up and start pumping the fuel out into its container.
CAUTION; WEAR EYE AND BREATHING PROTECTION. KEEP FIRE EXTINGUISHER'S HANDY.

you should be able to route a line without removing the tank, just remove one strap at a time

Testimonial: "thank you for your response bad place to put a brake line"
SOURCE: REPLACING FUEL TANK STRAPS
I know it can be a bear if the bolts and pins are rusted. Unless the new straps are OEM, some after market straps don't fit quite as well and you need Godzilla strength to manover them into place to get them pinned and bolted back up.
You shouldn't have to drop the tank as long as you do the straps one at a time. Get a floor jack, transmission jack or even a motorcycle jack and place wood under the gas tank and do one strap at a time. I used a second jack to help push the strap in place so I could push it into place on a 97 Dakota. Good luck and sometimes it goes smooth but, some times it makes a preacher say things they wouldn't say in church. :)
