You may need to use smaller-drive sockets (like a 1/4" with a swivel) to reach the tough ones. Sometimes they're obstructed by parts that can be removed as well - you should look to see if anything that is blocking bolt access is removable or adjustable. If all else fails, and the bolts are being blocked by parts of the frame, you may need to loosen or remove a motor mount and lift that part of the engine a few inches up to reach the last few bolts.

Without seeing a picture of what is being blocked, I can only take stabs in the dark, but those would be the most likely solutions that I can think of.

How do i change out the oil pan?


4.2L Engine
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
    WARNING
    During engine repair procedures, cleanliness is extremely important. Any foreign material, including any material created while cleaning gasket surfaces, that enters the oil passages, coolant passages or the oil pan can cause engine failure.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the starter.
  4. Drain the engine oil. Install the drain plug when finished.
  5. Remove the 4 bolts and the crossmember.
  6. Remove the 3 oil pan-to-transmission bolts.
  7. Remove the 17 bolts and the oil pan.
  8. Remove and discard the oil pan rear seal.
To install:

WARNING
Do not use metal scrapers, wire brushes, power abrasive discs or other abrasive means to clean the sealing surfaces. These tools cause scratches and gouges which make leak paths. Use silicone gasket remover and a plastic scraping tool to remove all traces of old sealant. Follow the directions on the packaging.
  1. Clean the gasket mating surfaces using silicone gasket remover, a plastic scraping tool and metal surface prep. Follow the directions on the packaging.
    NOTE
    If the oil pan is not secured within 4 minutes, the sealant must be removed and the sealing areas cleaned. To clean the sealing area, use silicone gasket remover and metal surface prep. Follow the directions on the packaging. Failure to follow this procedure can cause future oil leakage.
  2. Apply silicone gasket and sealant to the oil pan sealing areas shown and install the oil pan rear seal.
  3. Apply silicone gasket and sealant to the rear main bearing cap.
  4. Install the oil pan rear seal.
  5. Apply a bead of silicone gasket and sealant to the oil pan mating surface.
  6. Position the oil pan and install the bolts. Tighten the bolts in the sequence shown. Tighten to 10 Nm (89 inch lbs.).
  7. Install the 3 oil pan-to-transmission bolts. Tighten to 34 Nm (25 ft. lbs).
  8. Install the starter.
  9. Position the crossmember and install the 4 bolts. Tighten to 90 Nm (66 ft. lbs.).

Remove a 2005 cr-v honda oil pan


Remove all bolts in the pan assembly. You may need to remove other objects that may obstruct the removal of the oil pan bolts. It would be a good idea to have the oil drained prior to pan removal. The oil pan uses a special RTV sealant instead of a gasket and can be a pain to seperate from the engine block. Use a soft faced hammer and strike the sides of the oil pan until it begins to loosen from the block. You can then use a screwdriver/prybar to seperate the seal and have the pan come off

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!

I need to know if i remove flywheel or ac compressor to remove oil pan


procedure is pasted below. Yes, you have to take the compressor loose if you have the 2.4 liter engine. You should never have to remove the flywheel to get the pan off, but you do have to pull the cover off the flywheel. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

2.2L Engine
See Figure 1
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the crankcase. Raise and support the front of the vehicle.

How do i replace a oil pan on this car


First, drain the oil.

You will need to get an engine hoist and lift the engine about a half foot up. This will require unhooking at least one motor mount that is closest to the oil pan.

Once the engine is lifted, you can unbolt the oil pan and remove/replace it.

Do be mindful of what sort of sockets you need as some Passats require special hex bolts tools or other odd tools.

Oil pan removal 3.7


a lot tougher job than in the old days!

The engine oil pan is made of laminated steel and has a single plane sealing surface. The sandwich style oil pan gasket has an integrated windage tray and steel carrier. The sealing area of the gasket is molded with rubber and is designed to be reused as long as the gasket is not cut, torn or ripped

1.) Disconnect negative battery cable.
2.) Remove the radiator fan
3.) Remove the intake manifold you need to do this to install the engine support tool
4.) Install engine support Tool #8534 Do not raise engine at this time but make sure it is tight!
5.) Remove the structural cover
6.) Remove both left and right side engine mount through bolts
7.) Raise engine to provide clearance to remove oil pan.
8.) Drain engine oil and remove oil filter
9.) Remove the oil pan mounting bolts and oil pan.
10.) Unbolt oil pump pickup tube and remove tube and oil pan gasket from engine.

NOTE:Do not pry on oil pan or oil pan gasket. Gasket is mounted to engine and does not come out with oil pan.

Remove oil pan on 98 dodge stratus? The mount bar is preventing me from reaching the back two bolts. Is there a special tool or do you have to remove the transmission?


Most cars today you have to raise the engine somewhat to remove the oil pan. To do so you'll need to first support the engine (use a lift if you can) and unbolt the engine mounts. Before lifting look at any wires, hoses or such which could be of issue if the engine were raised. If so remove or move as required. Once this is done you may be able to raise the engine (slightly) to access the bolts and remove the pan.
I hope this mauy have helped,
