Hey,
My 2.5 duke siezed on me, but before the oil gage was reading little to no pressure but every time i have her running before she died she wasn't making any bad noises i was running a slightly heavier oil in it becuase she is an older car, the gage did seem to read bad after i did an oil change but every time i checked the oil in that three week time fram it was perfect no mettal flakes no water and still looking clean, so i assumed that my sensor went dead since it had done that to me 4 moths previous, and sadly heading home from fun with friends she decided she wasn't going to work any more so I was wondering if you have and schimatics for taking out the old dead 2.5 and instaling a new one i happened appon. If so and you do have them in any of your "caves" may i take a peek or maybe can you e-mail them to me
I have only had her for three years too, ran like a dream and i can't brin my self to junk her.
Please respond. or e-mail me at AsylumEscapee@hotmail.com

Welcome to the Forum
I know its too late now but it could have been a bad filter.
Try posting in the Mall. Cant really help you with the swap but if you have a place to work and the tools it should not be too hard.
Try the search and you will find lots of information about dropping the cradle.
Good Luck

2.5 out the top is not difficult, can be done in a weekend. pix in the link below.
while youve got it out, consider checking/replacing oil pan gasket, tranny seals, clutch, timing gears.
