Question about 2003 Buick Rendezvous
Is there anything tricky i need to know about changing this gasket? I got a basic and general knowledge of engines but havent worked on them much. Also i cant seem to find the torque setting when putting the bolts back on and is there a certain order that i need to tighten them down in.
Not really. As long as you drain the oil, remove some the screws, and check one of them on how tight it may feel when you do tighten the other ones. Then remove them all. Thats why pans have so many screws. because they don't need a lot of torque. Replace the screws with two in front two in the middle just barely tight so that the gasket will settle into the groove and two in the back the same way. then tighten them as you go along. watch for any kinks in the new gasket . straighten the gasjket by removing the middle and back one if yo have too.It also depends on what kind of material the gasket is. if the old one sticks to the engine or pan be sure to remove all the left over pieces until it is clean.
