No you can with out taking the mount bolts off, but it kinda tight and best to drop the back first and just pull down for the cleanrance you need and push back. - i just replaced the rod bearing in mine with out pulling the motor --- your'll need a 10 mi and a 13 mi deepwell socket and the most inportant thing your'll need is a swibel for the front 2 bolts - but you can get to them

Most likely, you'll need to raise the engine a bit to get the oil pan to clear the crossmember and the crank throws. This is not as hard as it sounds, but you will need a lifting bar to raise the engine and remove the bolts from the engine mounts. I would get a manual for this car as they are not the most intuitive to work on.

Oil Pan Gasket Replacement/ Oil Pan removal


yes the starter does have to be removed but also the engine mounts must be also as the engine must be raised about 10 " to get the pan out. if you do try this make sure you have very very sturdy jack stands for the engine to just a jack as the jack will lift it but wont maintain it long enough to safely remove the pan and reinstall it......good luck and be very carefull

My 97 dodge intrepid is leaking oil badly! It looks like from engine. How do I fix it?


You don't say from what part of the engine. When is the last time you've had the oil changed? Check the oil filter first if it's loose (it happens) or the seal is old etc... a new filter will fix it.

Picture of the location of the thernmosat on 1998 dodge intrepid


this one is tricky ! raise the engine and look on the driver side right over the alternator, yes it's there in the housing. follow the radiator hose to the engine to make sure, this trick works on all vehicles.
I changed it on a 3.2 same year, and it was impossible without take the alternator out.
the water pump is also in the engine and is a big job, around 8 hours, when it blows, the coolant falls directly in the oil pan.
