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.

First remove the coolant over flow reservoir, remove the heater core pipes that ran across the mount by taking two 10mm bolt that hold the pipe, one bolt by a/c compressor and the other behind power steering pump for easy access to remove mount,Above the wheel by the fire wall two bolts (15mm) hold the mount from the bottom remove them,support engine with floor jack at oil pan, use piece of board between jack and oil pan so no damge acured to oil pan, then remove upper three bolts(15mm) that hold mount, this should help you get that mount out, its a very tight spot hopw this helps.

Drain plug for transmission on a 4 cyl dodge stratus automatic 2001

I do not have a Dodge Stratus, however, I have owned more than 20 vehicles. None of them had a drain plug for the transmission. The reason for this is transmission oil is normally good for many many miles. When it is time to change it, the manufacturer wants you to remove the oil pan, clean it, change the filter and adjust the bands as may be necessary. No oil plug means you have to remove the pan + there is never a leak as a result of no plug.
