SOURCE: When you try to start

The Problem is your VATS security system. I just fixed this in my 96 regal 3 days ago. You can go the cheap way, and bypass the key. (link #1) or spend 200 bucks and rip that whole garbage system out of your car. (link 2) I bypassed my key, worked for about a year till the computer part started failing. then i just did a full rip out.

How to remove a oil pan from a 1988 Cadillac sedan deville


Have to remove the bolt from the motor mount on right side and loosen the bolts on the left side motor mount, jack engine up on right side until you get enough clearance to slide pan out, hopefully your exhaust system will not get in the way to where you have to remove that also.

How do I remove the oil pan cover from a 99 dodge Dakota 4x4 with air 3.9 liter v6


You have to remove the engine mount bolts(one on each side) . Remove the differential mount bolts(three of the I believe). Drop the differential as low as it will go, raise the engine with a jack on the balancer, Just as i starts to raise the body. Remove the bolts to the oil pan and you might still have to pry it out some. Some drop out and some take a bit of leverage out and back in. Watch the gasket...

How do I get oil pan off on a 2000 Saturn LW300 V6 3.0L


The official shop manual reads :
Remove nose cone brackets bolts from oil pan.
Remove lower transmission flange to oil pan bolts.
Remove oil pan bolts.
Using designated pry points to break loose the seal. Bump the pan with a rubber mallet to loosen the pan from the engine block.
Remove oil pan.
By the illustrations, the only thing in the way is the oil pickup tube.... Good luck !

What is wrong with my 2004 chevolet malibu, its leaking oil tremendously


If this has the v6, it's probably the intake manifold gaskets. This is a super common problem with these. You end getting oil in the cooling system and anti-freeze in the oil, they also leak externally when this happens. I would get it looked at/repaired asap or severe engine damage will result. I've had to replace quite a few over the years.
