Engine trouble

Sounds pretty serious. If the truck is in decent condition you might want to check into a good used engine.

Anyway I can fix a small crack on the oil pan without removing it?

You could use some JB Weld or you could also use some 100 mph racing tape...

Neither of these would last very long. Personaly, I would recommend replacing the whole oil pan.
Try google and do a search an oil pan for your make, model and year vehicle... You'll find some good deals this way.

I hope this helps you out....

I have a cracked oil sump on my renault megane 1999 model.oil is dripping on to exhaust causing it to can i fix this myself. i have been told to use steel putty? will this work or is there a...

Steel putty may work, but it is at best a short term solution and even with the most diligently cleaned and roughened surface, will eventually come loose due it expansion differences in the materials. The permanent solutions is to either replace the oil pan or have the crack brazed up professionally. Both will require removal of the oil pan.

Cracked drip pan on a 1996 3.8 Rivera Buick.

Hi! My name is Tom and I can help you.

By drip pan I am going to assume you mean oil pan. First you need to get your car on blocks or up in the air enough to reach the oil pan.

Remove the drain plug and drain the oil.(discard the oil). You will see a number of bolts securing the pan. Using the proper box wrench remove all the bolts.

You will see a gasket. This must be replaced. You can purchase the proper pan gasket by asking for a pan gasket at an auto parts store. While you are there ask for the proper sealant for the gasket.

Clean the pan and any oil on the surface where the gasket will touch. Place gasket sealer around the pan and seal the gasket to the pan cover. Replace the pan. Put the bolts back and fill with oil. Start the car and get it to operational temperature and check for leaks. You are now Good to go.

This is a fairly involved yet simple fix.

My oil pan has a spider crack and i just need to fix it enought to get it to my auto shop what can i do to do a tep fix till i can get it there

I would drain the oil let it sit with the oil plug out. After about 1 hour take some brake cleaner spray the crack and get the oil off. If you are going to have it welded at the shop or a new oil pan put on you can try gasket sealer on it. It should hold up to take it to the shop only. A fix might be just to try to use a high tem. 2 part metal putty u can buy it at any auto parts store. If you use the 2 part you will have to v the crack out some. Just make shur you get the crack clean before hand.

Oil pan crack

yes, it could have caused this. You have to prove it with the insurance company, by getting a mechanic to say this is what hit it and caused it to hit the pan.

My oil light is coming on, but the oil is full.

Did he inspect the oil pick-up tube before putting new pan on? If the old pan was caved in roughly where pick-up tube would be in pan. it may have bent it up to a point where it doesn't **** up the oil, or the tube could be cracked above the oil level & sucking more air, than oil.

Remove oil pan

Try this, before removing bolts, breaking loose the factory gaskets seals, fighting with cross members and steering joints, some vehicles can never get done correctly unless a professional mechanic with proper tools and educated ways of removing a oil pan. clean it up where the crack is place some paper towel there after draining out all the oil you can, hint-- might need to sit a day with clean paper towel under it making sure its not releasing any more oil out the crack, scrub it with sand paper when its all dry and clean place some "seal all" brand glue over the crack seal all works on oil, grease, gasoline,must be absolutely clean and dry first. after two coats it dries fast then place some paper in third layer to give more stability to the patch. most of the time you will not need to replace the oil pan. if it still leaks get a good book on your vehicle in the public library they give instructions on most all repairs.removal and replacement.
