Oil pan removal problems on my 89 F-350 w/7.3L Diesel

I am trying to remove the oil pan and am having a very hard time getting it off. I have the motor jacked up and the tranny jacked up. Is there a way to remove it without taking the tranny out and removing the flywheel?

Oil light comes on at idle


I usually ask people with this problem how long they plan to keep the car. If it doesn't get worse, you can keep driving like this. If you want to keep the car a long time, then read on.

It could be the sensor or the pump or a clogged strainer. Of these, the sensor is by far the cheapest repair. Put a new sensor in and see if that fixes it. If not, now you have to take the oil pan off to make sure the strainer isn't clogged. If it is, clean and reinstall the oil pan. If it isn't replace the oil pump and then reinstall the oil pan. If you have more questions or need instructions, please let us know.

My 2001 Excursion Diesel is leaking oil from the oil pan gasket. Can I just drop the pan to replace the gasket (with a slight forward maneuvering) or do I have to drop the cross bar directly beneath the...


If it is in fact the oil pan gasket that is leaking, then you would first need to drain out the oil through the oil drain plug and recycle the oil. Then you can remove the oil pan and replace the old gasket with a new one, refill with the proper amount of oil. Then you can run the car and see if it still leaks.

How to remove an oil pan on 99 ford taurus


This is a really time consuming and fairly difficult job to do due to the fact you have to remove so many things just to get to the oil pan. I have done this before and it took me a couple hard days of work to get it finished. I would really recommend taking it to a shop having it done by professionals. It really should be done up on a lift and requires you to remove the exhaust system, a couple of O2 sensors , the y pipe and catalytic converter assembly, the torque converter cover plate, and the starter just to get to the oil pan. Removing and reinstalling the oil pan itself was fairly easy but I had a really hard time removing the bolts from the exhaust system. The exhaust flange connecting the y pipe to the flex pipe had to be cut off and a new flange had to be welded on to each side due to the bolts being so rusted and corroded they hardly even looked like bolt anymore. If you are still wanting to do it yourself just let me know and I will give you the step by step directions to get the oil pan off. Also you would have to let me know which engine you have in your taurus the 24v DOHC or the 12v OHC. I hope this helps you out.

Oil pan removal?


Im not sure if you are talking about the motor pan or the tranny pan. But I have lifted the motor and tranny together on a vehicle to change the motor pan and mounts before. I remember having to loosen the fan shroud. Undo linkage on the tranny and make sure the shifter boots were loose. The key for me was going real slow with the crane and having extra eyes around. It was a pain but it worked out.

How to remove the oil pan on a 2004 dodge ram 2500 diesel


What motor is in it? Mostly have to take all the oil pan bolts out, undo the motor mounts and raise the motor up enough for the oil pan to clear the cross member. make sure you don't have too much in the way when you raise the motor, as you may break something.

2000 7.3 Liter diesel engine needing oil pan replacement


sadly I don't think there is. The oil pan is huge and sections of the frame are in the way of getting it in and out without damaging the pan severly. pulling that massive engine and replacing the pan, then putting the engine back in and reconnecting everything in 14 hours is a good estimate. sorry for the bad news
