Make sure it is the oil pan gasket, it is rare they leak, more likely the oil is comming from up top and drainning down on to the pan (since it is lowest point on the engine), have the engine cleaned of oil and then decide where the oil is comming from, if you find it is just a small leak don't worry about it.

How do I change the oil pan gasket?


Whether it's an engine oil pan (called the 'sump'' in the UK) or a transmission oil pan the principle is the same on all vehicles.
1. Drain the oil

2. Remove the bolts holding the sump/pan in place:

Use a blunt screwdriver -if needed - and prise the oil pan free. remove all traces of the old gasket from the mating surfaces.

Use a smear of sealant to hold the new gasket in the correct position on the pan - this will hold it in place when you refit the pan.

Push the pan into position and put in a front bolt finger-tight. Then put in a rear bolt finger-tight.

Putting in the bolts finger-tight allows you to gently 'move' the pan if needed to put the bolts in one at a time.

When all bolts are in, tighten them with a wrench/socket. Then check them all again for tightness.

It isn't actually a big job .. more 'messy' because of the oil.

It looks like that the cause of your leaking pan gasket is excessive blow-by gases pressure due to worn out piston rings. The low oil level is a telltale sign the you are consuming (burning) oil because of this problem.
I recommend that you have a ring and if possible also bearing job to your engine. Merely replacing the torn out gasket will just temporary solve your leak problem. Since you will still burn oil, your emission problem will not be solved.

1994 oldmobile transmission pan replacement


Just get a used trans pan

You can put that one yourself,pretty easy job

I would suggest you go to a trans repair shop
& tell them what car you have.

If they don't have a used one, they will get it the next
morning early, with their daily parts ,from the wholesaler

They also have the good pan gaskets,you do not want the
rubber & cork from the auto parts store
You want the brown cardboard looking gasket, with the waxy
coating.

The used pan & gasket goes for about $10.00 total

My 94 camry is leaking oil and I was told that it need a new oil pan. How much will this cost?


A used one in good condition is about 25 bucks on any of the boards. The gasket should be about 12 bucks. And to put it on it will be aprox 70 bucks. You may not need an oil pan. just a new gasket. Did you hit something that tore it open or bent it? get under there and look at it. You will be able to tell if you did or not. Generally you WONT need an oil pan....just resealed... Hope I helped.

Yesterday I hit somenting, and all the oil of my camaro 98 drained... how can i fix it.


You probably put a hole in your oil pan. It has to be removed, cleaned, and patch the hole. Make sure you have a fresh gasket and silicone when you replace the pan. Your local auto parts store can give you some tips for the job.

What is the best way to replace oil pan? do I have to remove the engine?


Using a chain block or a portable engine hoist , remove motor mounts & raise engine enough to remove oil pan. You may have to remove some rad hoses etc. to give you the necessary clearance. Remove pan carefully & clean & install new gaskets & seals if necessary. Place wooden blocks at motor mounts for safety sake. Good luck!

Car will not downshift upon acceleration..."kickdown"


Most affordable possible solution is to give it a transmission tune-up. Transmission number one problem is neglect. Change the oil, filter and pan gasket. You'll probably need to take the pan off, very messy job. Take the pan off, carefully scrape all old gasket material, clean the pan with dish washing soap, dry it completely, put a bottle of Lucas for transmission in the pan. Put some Indian Head Gasket Shellac Compound on the pan gasket surface. Set the gasket on the pan, keep the gasket on the pan for three minutes then install. Don't put any Shellac on the transmission gasket surface nor on the gasket. Follow recommended directions for filling the transmission with oil.

To change the oil pan gasket in a 93 Tercel


Stock the car doesn't come with an oil pan gasket but you can order one from rockauto.com you don't have to remove the A/C compressor for any of the jobs you listed. If you want to change the timing belt you need to remove the plastic rock guard under the motor on the passenger side. remove the spark plugs and using the socket turn the engine from the crankshaft clockwise until you are at TDC on #1 cyclinder. (compression stroke) Next remove the upper and lower plastic timing belt covers. The idler pulley is the one with the spring. Loosen the nut and remove the spring then you can remove the timing belt. It really isn't that hard to do. Maybe one afternoon.
