SOURCE: Need torque specs for oil pan gasket

There likely is a spec for oil pan but unless you are a finatic, you really don't need to know what it is. Simple rule: Don't crank down ******* any fastener. If corners near crank ends have larger fasteners, you can tighten them a bit more than on siderails. Before tightening anything, install all bolts finger tight, to ensure that they are not cross threaded. To avoid warping pan, tighten from the center of the pan, working towards both ends, alternating from side to side as you go. When you are finished, go over it again, using the same amount of force on each bolt. As I said, end bolts can if larger in diameter, be tightened more but be careful not to tighten so much that you will either split or push the gasket out the sides.. Anywhere two gasket ends **** together, I recommend using a sensor -safe dab of silicone. An oil pan is not under any mechanical stress or pressure. I have used this method for many years and NEVER had one leak. If you really need #s, small fasteners get about 12-15in lbs, larger ones about 20.

Removal Procedure

Important: The original oil pan gasket is retained and aligned to the oil pan by rivets. When installing a new gasket, it is not necessary to install new rivets.
DO NOT reuse the oil pan gasket. When installing the oil pan, install a NEW oil pan gasket.

Caution: Refer to Battery Disconnect Caution in Service Precautions.

  • Disconnect the negative battery cable. Refer to Battery Negative Cable Disconnect/Connect Procedure
  • Remove the front differential if equipped with four wheel drive. Refer to Differential Carrier Assembly Replacement in Front Axle.
  • Remove the under body shield from the vehicle
  • Remove the oil pan underbody shield.
  • Remove the cross brace if equipped.
  • Drain the engine oil and remove the engine oil filter. Refer to Engine Oil and Oil Filter Change
  • Remove the lower transmission-to-oil pan bolts
  • Disconnect the oil level sensor electrical connector.
  • Remove two front wiring harness retainer bolts.


10. Remove the engine wiring harness retainer bolts from the engine oil pan.
11. Remove the engine oil cooler pipe to oil pan bolt.
12. Remove the transmission oil cooler pipe retainer and the bolt from the oil pan.
13. Remove the starter motor. Refer to Starter Motor Replacement.
14. Remove the left closeout cover and bolt.
15. Remove the engine oil pan. Refer to Oil Pan Removal.

Installation Procedure

Important: The alignment of the structural oil pan is critical. The rear bolt hole locations of the oil pan provide mounting points for the transmission bellhousing. To ensure the rigidity of the powertrain and correct transmission alignment, it is important that the rear of the block and the rear of the oil pan must NEVER protrude beyond the engine block and transmission bellhousing plane.

SOURCE: 2003 Taurus 24V DOHC, have engine oil covering oil

Oil leak can be attributed to several factors.
1. Gasket failure.
2. Uncontrolled Crank case pressure Failure.

RECOMENDATION:
Tighten both the valve cover and oil pan bolts.
Replace the Positive Crankcase Ventilation Valve and vacuum line.,

INFO: PCV
This is a valve causes a negative vacuum on the engine while its running, As to say if it had a leak in a valve cover it should not be leaking while its running, only when the engine it turned off.

Hope this tip guides you in the correct direction to solve this problem.

SOURCE: my 2003 ford taurus has oil pan gasket leak just

All you have to do is get under the car with a 1/2" drive ratchet, 3" extension, an extension swivel, and the socket for the bolts on the oil pan. Go through all the bolts and tighten them all up. You will be surprised at how loose some of them are.

I HAVE 1997 FORD TAURUS, AND IT HAD AN OIL LEAK, HOW CAN I TELL IF IT IS THE OIL PAN OR A BLOWN HEAD GASKET?


the head gasket is on the engine higher than the oil pan so if the leak is not were the head meets the cylinder block and running down towards the bottom of the motor then the head gasket is not the problem.if the leak is only around the oil pan area and slightly above it then its probably the oil pan that is leaking.fluid leaks travel backwards or downwards not up.

2003 Taurus-engine revs way over 2000 rpm when in park-vehicle pulls itself along at 45-50mph without touching accelerator-in reverse RPMs seem normal. I just had the oil pan gasket replaced a few days...


You have a massive vacuum leak somewhere. I would check the intake manifold gaskets for leaks and to see if the Idle Air Control valve is stuck open.

How to replace oil pan gasket?


Very easy,dirty,messy, job. Grab few item from auto zone. Such as rtv sealant gasket itself, a blade or something to remove the old gasket. 4-8 quarts of oil 10w40 synthetic. Oil filter oil filter remover socket set. Run car for 5 minutes. Drain oils. Recycle it... Dart removing the screws around the oil pan. Once remove clean the surface remove the old gasket with shart razor blade make sure do not damage the surface where the gasket go. The gasket go between the oil pan and the engine mating surface . Clean the pan and clear as much gunk you can out the pump opening or tube. put rtv sealant ( some don't need the gasket because they r the gasket.) place gasket putt screw back it. Change filter refill the car with oil ( 4-8 depending on engine size) That's it.

Changing oil pan gasket 2003 ford taurus is it easy


Hi,

Disconnect the battery. You will need to put the car up on jack stands, get under the car, drain the oil, remove the catalytic converter (which can be aggravating without a lift hoist, which I am assuming you don't have), remove the starter and flywheel cover, remove the oil pan (held on by about twenty 8mm bolts all the way around), clean the gasket surface, install a new gasket (put a small amount of RTV in the corners only!), install the pan (tighten the bolts evenly to about 100 inch pounds--CAUTION: that is not very tight, do not over tighten!), reinstall everything, fill the oil, and happy trails.

"Which can be aggravating" only hints at the misery you will invite when you have to remove the Y pipe assembly attached to the catalytic converter. Before you remove the first screw on the oil pan, make sure you can do it. I spent most of yesterday prepping the surfaces, working the gasket in from the outside of the pan and getting the silicone and screws done with 1 1/2 " of clearance, because I couldn't. No leaks, but oh my god. As my dad would have said "It could make a preacher cuss."

Good luck.

I need to replace the oil pna, is it a easy one to fix?


Replacing the oil pan isn't particularly difficult, but you may have some trouble getting to it since there is often a cross-brace or something else to obstruct free access to the pan. Once the bolts are loose, the pan should just come down. The gasket may have stuck a little so you may need to persuade it.
If you have a cross-brace obstructing access, you may need to disconnect the motor mount and lift the engine a little.
Hope that helps; and good luck.

Do i need to replace the oil pump strainer when i replace the oil pump for 1999 ford taurus or repale any other gaskets besides the oil pan gasket


The strainer would need to be completely clean and undamaged or bent, Then okay. Ususally the pan does not come right out, and you have to release motor mounts, and raise the engine.
