SOURCE: 2002 dodge stratus clutch removal

first the engine does not need to be removed, a engine support bar is placed over the engine bay and hooked to the engine while the transmission is dropped, the clutch is bolted to the flywheel on the engine side and not on the transmission, if you are requesting info on how to seperate the transmission from the engine then you will need to support both engine and transmission equally so that there is no hang up between the transmission input shaft and the clutch splines, also be careful not to cause any damage to the pilot bearing or it will be harder to remove later, then use a pry bar between the two, being out of the car could be a bit more tricky,

SOURCE: replacing serpentine belt 2002 dodge stratus

Did this on my 2002 Stratus 2.4L. I agree with other poster, you do have to remove the passenger tire and wheel wall to do it, but the tensioner travels clockwise.
Note: I offer this solely as a description of how I accomplished the task on my vehicle. It should not be taken as me advising anyone else in any way on how or whether they manage to repair their own vehicles.

1) Engaged parking brake, loosened lugs on passenger front tire.
2) Jacked-up and placed jack-stand.
3) Removed piece of black under-carriage which surrounds the oil filter and attaches to front bumper. There are at least 10 plastic push-pins to remove and I managed to destroy half of them in the process.
4) Positoned belt over lower pulleys and tensioner (as best as possible) then used a bungee to hold the top end of belt up while I worked under the car.
5) Used a 3/8 ratchet and inserted into square hole attached to the tensioner, disengaged the tensioner (moves clockwise) then used a brace to keep the ratchet handle in that position.
6) From top, removed bungee and finished placing belt over alternator, checked the position of entire belt, reengaged the tensioner, and replaced wall and wheel.

SOURCE: location of thermostat on 2002 dodge stratus 2.7 eng.

The thermostat on this car is located on the passenger side lower Engine block. Follow the lower radiator hose and it will lead you right to it. The Wheel and splash guarding need to be removed as well as the Alternator to gain access to the housing bolts. It about a 3 hour job to replace thermostat.

How do i take off and put on rear struts

The bolts on top get stuck in the mount. Prying back and forth usually gets them to come out. Some times a long pry bar is need. Some times there are 3 nuts on top. If they are inline with the strut, There are 2 , if they are off set , there are 3. Been a while since I've done an older Dodge.

How do i get the right motor mount out of the way when changing a timing belt on an '06 dodge stratus 2.4L 4 cylinder motor?

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.

I have a 1998 Dodge Avenger with a 2.0 (4cyl). Does anyone know of any tricks to remove the passenger side motor mount to engine bolts without removing the engine from the car ????

Put the car on stands and put a jack within a few inches of the under side of the engine. Loosen the bolt mounts by about have a turn. Have a friend use a length of timber and use jack top as a lever fulcrum to take the weight of the engine off the mount whilst you remove the mounting bolts. Take care not to put any load on the oil pan as it can crush quite easily. You should be able to adjust the engine attitude about two inches without having to detach anything, this is enough room to get the old mount out and therefore the new one in. Take your time and keep safe

How do I replace the front engine mount(composit center-piece) on a 1997 Dodge Stratus ES(V6)?

Should be as "simple" as putting a wooden block under the oil pan and slightly jacking up the engine, to releave weight from the mounts. Then remove bolts and remove the mount.

How to replace a timing belt in a 2005 dodge stratus

You Just have to remove the bolt from the transmission side ***** right in front of the cooling fans. And remove the front motor mount. Then use a jack with a wooden block to support the engine and jack it a few inches and you will have all the room you need. BTW, you will need to rent the special harmonic balance puller tool from you local parts store.
