    I have a hole in the oil pan of my 2007 Saturn Ion. I have to purchase the pan from the local new car dealer. I could not find it available at local parts. Can I replace this myself?

Oil Pan can most definitely be replace. Alot of work, however if you need a quick fix epoxy is very good. Get the one that looks like a stick of chalk but grayish and black in color. All you have to do is drain oil clan surface well use some brake cleaner works well, then sand pan a little to make it a little rough. dry clean and dry . Knead the it together you will feel it get warm in your hand its like play putty. This dried hard as a rock in about 20 minutes and can even bel sanded after and even painted. Good Luck

Yes I'm sure you can get a new one either directly from dealer, or auto parts store, but then there's always a recycle yard too, just look it over good that's all. JB weld may work, but I'd be nervous that it may only be temporary, and where I might be when it decides to let go, and how much a new engine will cost if I didn't notice it in time, plus there's always the one time someone needs to borrow your car, is when it happens, but they didn't worry too much when oil light came on.

If the car is a quart and a half low does Subaru have a shut-off feature to keep from hurting the engine.


No. The bigger issue is why is the oil level going down, assuming you do check the level, say, once a week. Oil leaks can be from
* the head gaskets on older 2.0 models.
* rust holes in the sump pan. Patch the holes with JBWeld or better, replace the sump pan.
* rear crank seal.

High oil consumption also occurs on older engines, say 180,000km or more, via worn valve seals. You'll usually see blue smoke blowing from the exhaust. The fix is recondition the heads, a major job.

Is replacing an oil pan in a 2004 toyota camry an easy fix ?


It isn't too hard. You need to drain the oil first ( make sure to change the gasket around the plug every time you remove and replace the plug or it will leak), then drop the oil pan... put down lots of absorber pads as there will be droppings. Have a rag on hand for your hands. Scrape and clean the old seal where the oil pan meets the engine then put on a new one once it is thoroughly cleaned. Put on new pan, or repair old one.... again make sure to replace oil pan gasket and new oil drain gasket ( around plug..) since your going that far get a new oil filter also.... fill the new filter with oil before installing, fill up the engine with new oil..ps. It takes a few minutes to run down so wait between oil bottles and check the level ( don't run the car) fill the oil until the dip stick reads full ( remember wait a few minutes between each liter of oil to give it a chance to leak into the bottom of the engine). I believe it is around 4.5 quarts including the amount needed to fill the filter.

Tools for oil change


You only need a few. You need a wrench or socket that fits the oil pan drain plug. Car makers have used all sizes of drain plugs, don't know Saturn's, anywhere from 13 millimeter to 19 millimeter size wrench or socket. One of them will fit yours.
So one wrench (when you find the right one) and you will need a drain pan to catch the oil. Next you will need an oil filter wrench or tool. There are several types and sizes-when you buy the new oil filter you can get the filter remover that fits your filter . A parts person should be able to help you select the right one. Also buy a small funnel to pour new oil into the engine .And don't forget to have a few rags handy to clean up spills and wipe off areas. That's about all that is normally required.

How do you change the oil on a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix


you need to remove the drain plug from the oil pan, make sure the pan plug gasket is not dropped. Then you remove the filter & replace with a new one. After the oil has been left to drain. put the pan plug snuggly back into the oil pan. Refill 4.5 liters of 5w 30w engine oil. Start the engine, check for any leaks from both the new filter & pan plug. Turn off igntion & check the oil level on the dipstick. to make sure it is at the topp off the cross stitched area, if not add more a half liter at a time until it is at the full mark. There is nothing to grease with this car. U should also check transmission fluid, whick needs to be checked while the engine is running in park, there is a hot & cold safe level so check it carefully.

Oil pan replacement for a 2004 Mazda tribute


You can buy an oversized drain plug that will cut new threads. There is no need for replacement of the pan.

Any auto parts store should be able to sell you one.
