Dodge raider engine removal
It is best to remove the engine /tranny as a unit. Remove all things that will not allow the engine to move forward and up such as radiator. Undo the manifolds at the heads. Undo all electrical connections and use masking tape to number the connectors so that you know where each one is connected. Get a good engine hoist and use a load shifting lifter bar ( a tool that has a hook point that is adjusted by a threaded bar ) so that as you can adjust the center of gravity of the unit on the hook. As you come forward you can alter the lift point so that the tranny drops to the rear allowing you to lift the unit at an angle to get it up and over the front bar of the body Remember to drain all oils before you start and it won't be half as messy. Remove the bonnet as well for more room

Automatic, V-6, ideal RPM at 70 MPH?
Sounds like the transmission is not shifting into a higher gear. 2,500 to 3,000 rpm would be more realistic for a highway cruising speed. The higher rpm may not be a big deal as far as the engine is concerned but it will hit you pocket book pretty good when you loose the mpg that you should get.
I would personally either limit your driving until it can be checked or at least slow down so that the RPMs are in the range listed above.
Let me know what they find, my curiosity is peaked!
