Question about 2001 Dodge Stratus
If you live in a warm region use 10-50, if it gets cold in the winter where you live, use 20-50. I like to use synthetic oil. It seems to hold up better in any engine.

SOURCE: oil light is on
Oil pressure and oil level are 2 different things, is this the oil pressure warning light that comes on? If so then the oil pressure sensor may be bad if there is no engine noise. I would have the oil press checked with a mechanical guage though just to be safe, engines cost big $$$$

COULD BE LOSS OF ALL TRASMISSION FLUID, BROKEN HOSE, BLOWN PUMP,BURNT TRANSMISSION RINGS( HOW DID THE TRANNY OIL SMELL?) BURNT TRANNY FLUID OR A COMBINATION OF ANY OF THE ABOVE. IF IT JUST QUIT, YOU PROBABLY HAVE A SERIOUS PROBLEM THAT WILL REQUIRE A REBUILD OR A SALVAGE TRANSMISSION FROM A LOCAL WRECKING YARD. THE LATTER BEING THE CHEAPEST AND AT TIMES THE BETTER DEAL ALL AROUND, TIME WISE AND MONEY. VERSUS A REBUILD THAT REQUIRES NEW PARTS, BANDS, PUMP, SEALS AND ON AND ON PLUS HOURS OF LABOR TO FIX EQUALS ONE BIG BIG BILL!BEING A 2001 A TRANNY FROM A WRECKING YARD ISN'T GOING TO HAVE THAT MANY MILES ON IT EITHER SO YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND SOME PRETTY DECENT ONES. THAT'S THE ROUTE I'D GO, BUT YOU'RE FREE TO CHOOSE EITHER CHOICE. I DON'T ENDORSE OR CONDEMN EITHER ONE, JUST POINT OUT THE GOOG AND THE WEAK IN EACH FOR YOU TO DECIDE! GOOD LUCK! IF I CAN HELP REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217

most likely no filter that you can service. most of these chryslers have them in the fuel tank as part of the fuel pump

remove all the components in the way of the valve cover. Then remove the valve cover and replace the gasket and reassemble.
usually about a 3 to 4 hour job.
