How to replace oil pan


5.2 liter V8 engine?

Remove the four front skid-plate bolts holding the front skid plate, using a ratchet and socket. Remove the skid plate.

Pull the plastic splash shield away from the vehicle, loosening the retaining clips. Remove the splash shield.


  • Place an oil drain container under the oil pan. Loosen the drain fitting with a wrench until oil drains from the pan. When oil is done draining, tighten the drain fitting.

  • Disconnect the electrical connections running to the starter motor. Remove the starter motor mounting bolts with a ratchet and socket, then remove the starter motor.
  • Remove the oxygen sensor socket from the exhaust pipe, using a wrench.
  • Remove the exhaust manifold bolts where the exhaust meets the manifold on both sides, using a ratchet and socket
  • Place an jack under the transmission to support it. Remove the pressure on the transmission crossmember.

  • Remove the bolts that hold the transmission crossmember in place, using a ratchet and socket. Then remove the crossmember. Place a jack stand under the transmission to keep the transmission from falling off the jack if hit. Once removed, the exhaust will hang down, allowing enough room to remove the oil pan.
  • Disconnect the oil level sensor and the nut retaining the transmission cooling lines, using a wrench.
  • Remove the oil pan bolts with a ratchet and socket, then remove the oil pan and gasket.
  • Clean the mounting surfaces of the new oil pan and engine block. Make sure what ever you use to clean the surfaces dosn't gouge the metal.
  • Place a coat of RTV (gasket) sealer on the engine block where the pan will meet the rear main cap.
  • Place the new gasket on the pan and push the new oil pan into place. Finger tighten the oil pan mounting bolts to hold it in place. Tighten the bolts with a torque wrench to 18 ft-lbs. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE BOLTS! Doing so will cause the gasket to deform and create leaks!

  • Connect the oil level sensor and the nut retaining the transmission cooling lines, using a wrench.
  • Place the exhaust back into position and replace the transmission crossmember bolts and crossmember with a ratchet and socket.
  • Remove the jack supporting the transmission.
  • Connect the exhaust back to both sides of the manifold, tightening the bolts with a torque wrench to 20 ft-lbs.
  • Attach the oxygen sensor socket to the exhaust pipe with a wrench.

  • Replace the starter motor by installing the starter motor mounting bolts with a ratchet and socket. Connect the electrical connections to the starter motor that were disconnected during removal.
  • Push the retaining clips on the plastic splash shield into the appropriate retaining clip holes.
  • Replace the front skid plate by replacing the four front skid plate bolts with a ratchet and socket.
  • Fill the engine with 5 quarts of oil. Make sure to check the level on the dipstick to find the exact level when filling.

    How to replace starter?


    Turn the car off and disconnect the battery. Lift the car with a jack and place jack stands under the frame of the car. Block the rear wheels to prevent the car from rolling backwards.

    Locate the starter and remove the wires connected to it. Mark them so you know which is positive and which is negative so you can reconnect them accordingly.

    Remove the bolts holding the starter in place. There are usually two or three bolts holding the starter.

    Pull the starter out of its position and remove it from the car. Some other parts may need to be loosened or removed for the starter to be removed from the car. Remember what parts are removed or loosened.

    Put the new starter in the car by installing it the same way the old starter was removed. Tighten the bolts slightly, connect the wires to the starter and then tighten the bolts completely.

    Replace any other parts in the car that were removed or loosened. Lower the car from the jack stands, remove the blocks from the rear wheels and reconnect the battery. Start the car to make sure everything is working properly.

    Do I need to pull my motor in my 2001 Dodge durango to replace the oil pan gasket?


    • Jack up the front of the Dodge Durango, and install a jack stand. Block the rear wheels.
    • Remove the oil plug and let the oil drain into a pan, being sure to remove as much of the old oil as possible.
    • Loosen the bolts holding the oil pan with a socket wrench, and remove the bolts with your fingers. Remove the oil filter, starter motor, cooler lines, oil level sensor, heated oxygen sensor connector and exhaust y-pipe, and then take off the oil pan.
    • Scrape off the old gasket with a thin putty knife, being very careful not to scrape the surface. Be sure all of the old gasket is removed, then wipe the surface with solvent. Spread a bit of oil on the surface to promote adhesion, and apply the new gasket.
    • Replace the oil pan, exhaust y-pipe, heated oxygen sensor connector, oil level sensor, cooler lines and starter motor, and install a new oil filter.
    • Raise the vehicle slightly with the jack and slide out the jack stand before lowering the vehicle and removing the jacks.
    • Fill the engine with the appropriate amount of oil. Check the level with the dipstick to be sure you have the right amount.
    Good luck and hope this helps.

    How do you replace the starter in a 93 eagle vision tsi


    you will probably have to jack the motor up to get it out

    1 Answer

    Starter motor.


    Disconnect the negative battery terminal.

    Jack it up. You're going underneath so chock the wheels and use jack stands. Be safe.

    Remove all wires from the solenoid.
    Depending on your flexibility, it may be easier to drop the starter before removing the wires. If you do, don't let it hang by the wires.

    On a 4.0, there is an oil cooler line bracket on the exhaust brace.
    Remove it.

    Remove all but one attaching bolts from the starter. Loosen the last one.

    The starter is heavy, support it and pull the last bolt.

    Slide the starter out of the mounting hole and lower it down.

    While you're down there inspect the flywheel teeth for damage.

    Hope this helps,

    Mike
