Oil pan replacement

There are two screws in between the transmission and the oil pan. The space for regular tools is too narrow. Is there a special tool used in order to take them out

How do i change my oil pan on my 2000 ford crown victoria. There seems to be a welded in crossmember holding the engine underneath do i have to remove the motor mounts and raise the engine to do the oil...


Yes you will have to raise the engine, also, and remove some other items that can be damaged when lifting. An engine hoist will be needed for this job. This text was taken from a 2000 crown vic workshop manual.
see pic for torque sequence. i could not locate a torque spec, so you will have to hand feel them. if it is a rubberized gasket do not over tighten as it will crush the gasket.

Hope this helps!

No reverse after i park my 1962 ford automatic


Fluid level and a dirty filter are the first things to check, then a band adjustment is next on the list. as the pan needs to come off to change the filter adjst the bands at the same time. the tea levels in the bottom of the oil pan will tell you in there are more serious issues inside.

Cannot get oil plug off of oil pan to change oil


Hello, dont mean to sound rude but double check to make sure your on the right screw. The screw should be towards the bottom of the oil panpossible at a slight angle to drain the oil. No special tools are needed normally a socket set will get the job done not exactly sure on the size. Try some locking pliers, lock it tight as possible around the screw and tap on the the handle with a hammer or somethin solid. I recently had the same proble with my oil pan screw thats how I got it off. Replace the screw once it comes off. Hope this is helpful.

Is it difficult to replace all the oil gaskets? I have a leak and it seems to be getting worse.


Im assuming you mean the oil pan gasket? Oil pan gaskets are very time consuming to change on most vehicles, expecially front wheel drive because of the space. First crawl under and locate the oil pan (don't confuse with the bottom of the transmission lol). On my front wheel drive vehicle, I had to disconnect the AC lines to get to it (what a headache that was). Getting access to the oil pan is the hardest part but once you have access, the process is realitively easy. Drain the oil first or you will be taking a bath. remove the screws, clean the area the gasket is going to be touching, replace gasket and re torque the bolts to mfg. specs in sequential order as to not bind or pinch the gasket. Also, is it leaking from the valve cover? Valve cover gaskets are much easier to replace than oil pan gaskets.

2001 vw beetle tdi diesel. How do I check the automatic transmission fluid? Also, my mechanic says he can't change transmission fluid or do a flush because there are no drain or fill plugs and no pan? What...


VW automatic transmissions require a special filling tool to fill the transmissions using gravity. They also never recommend a fluid or filter replacement unless a problem is evident. (a leak or shifting problem). They also use a special brown synthec oil that i believe is only available at VW. My advice is to go to a Volkswagen dealer. I'll still tell you how it works. To check the level the vehicle transmission must be cold (not driven at least 8-9 hrs). With a scanner plugged to check fluid temperature in the transmission. RFemove the red cap on the little tube. It's clipped. Once the red cap is removed the black cap can be pulled out. This is the fill tube. This is where the fluid is added using the fill tool. Start the car and remove the 5mm allen screw which looks like a drain. Inside this is a little tube that goes upwards like 3 cm in the pan. (when the oil heats up it expands and leaks out here) With the car running in park, if oil runs out of the pan hole before 35 deg. c there is too much. Let it drain. If no oil leaks at 35 deg. c it's because there is not enough and oil has to be added while the temperature is going up. At 35-40 deg. c oil should spill out ,reinstall the 5 mm allen with the seal, reinstall the filler plug and red cap lock. If the oil is over 26 deg. c before starting your better off waiting till it cools off to have time to add or let drain depending. Strange procedure but the right one.
