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

On a 2002 isuzu trooper 3.5 V6 with auto and 4wheel drive do i need to remove engine to pull oil pan? i have a loud banging in motor and need to check crankshaft & bearings


Yes, you need to pull the engine to remove the oil pan. This requires that you remove the propeller shafts and the third cross member to slide the transmission toward the rear of the vehicle. I suggest you purchase a service manual before you start this process. More than likely the rod bearing for cylinder 1 has failed. This seems to be a common problem with later model 3.5L Trooper engines because the oil pump and oil gallery do not deliver oil as efficiently to the number 1 rod bearing.

2002 Jaguar X-Type Oil Pan Gasket replacement


have you smashed the sump ??never seen one leak yet?? sure its not the front or rear end oil seals ??..sounds like you have the sub frame in the way ,evan if you remove this bolt you will not be able to drop the sump without removing or lowering the sub frame assembly as the oil pick up pipe stops you from removing the sump in situe.Its not difficult to drop sub frame just time consuming
