Well, for starters you have to remove the transaxle, that in itself
is a major task. However if you want to attempt this repair, you
will need a repair manual and appropriate tools. Good luck.

Replacing water pump & timing belt on 2001 Dodge Stratus R/T. Easy to replace front main seal, too?

oil seal failure is the main killer of rubber timing belts . Oil can come from the crankshaft seal --the cam shaft seal/s and the hydraulic belt adjuster.. So if you have the front off and am replacing the timing belt then it is fools economy not to replace the seals and any idler pulleys at the same time.

My oil is leaking from the rear of the engine of a dodge stratus 2004.

most commonly people over fill the oil on cars/trucks which results in a leaky rear main seal

located in between the motor and the transmission under the oil pan around the main crank shaft

hope that works for you

Good luck!

The drivers side steering boot is leaking on my 98 dodge stratus.Do i have to replace the whole rack?

Actually a rebuilt one may make more sense, the seals fail, usually because of excessive movement, and a new seal often fails pretty quick.

Was there any unusual events, like turning with the engine off, sometimes fluid goes where it shouldn't under those conditions....

it sounds like a rear main seal or a head gasket check your oil if it looks sort of like a milk shake color or foamy its the head gasket if its is leaving little spots under the car towards the back of the motor it is the rear main seal or it could an oil pan gasket.
