how do I change oil pan gasget


Jack up truck for safety sake put jack stands under frame . remove all engine oil remove all bolts holding oil pan on if their is not enough room to drop pan you may have to remove bolts holding motor mounts and jack up engine. if front end linkage is still in the way remove linkage. pull oil pan out. check gasket that was between block and oil pan if any stuck to block of engine remove with gasket scraper or wire brush or wire wheel on drill.make sure mating surface is clean put new gasket on new oil pan I like to use a high temp sealer on gasket both sides. Put pan with gasket back in place of old oil pan and tighten all bolts. jack engine down ,replace moter mount bolts replace any linkage you took apart. and dont forget to replace engine oil. make sure oil plug is in pan before pouring oil in . before starting engine check that no oil is leaking than start engine and check for any leaks again if all is good your done. if this was helpful please leave good feed back. A good temp fix on a rusted oil pan is JB weld make sure no oil is on pan clean with towel and rubbing alchol .you may have to drain oil first. if it is rusted badly you may have to use a wire brush on a drill to clean the area to patch. if patched properly it may last for years.

the oil pan is rusted and leaking need to replace. what are the propper steps to follow


Unfortunately, the problem isn't as easy to solve as icantry is describing...only because there IS a lot of "frame junk in the way" lol. Removal of the oil pan on this vehicle requires that the front axle assembly be removed from the vehicle, and the engine lifted about 3-4 inches. With the exception of pulling the entire engine out the top (which might be easier), there is no other way to remove the oil pan. Also, the oil pan gasket also serves as a windage tray and must be bolted to the underside of the crank bearing caps before bolting the new pan on. So proper steps: -remove both front wheel assemblies -disconnect the lower ball joint and the sway bar link bolts. -pull C/V shaft assemblies from axle -remove lower control arm to frame mounting bolts -disconnect front drive shaft from front diff -remove left side front

the frame is rusted out. there are holes all theough it and i dont have much money.


The frame, or just the body? A rusted frame is dangerous specially if it has holes. Welding on them is not recommended cuz it will make the metal hard and brittle. You can't do anything with a rusted frame with holes on it.
