SOURCE: Oil Pan? Oil Pump? LEAK!! HELP!

Quad 4 parts shouldn't be hard to find look up the quad4fourms.com and see what they can get you. The pan is a pain to change. I would pressure wash the engine and go from there. How much oil is your car using?

SOURCE: how much to change a oil pan gasket for 2001 grand prix 3.8 gt

If you want to repair the oil pan I would also check lower engine mount for leaking oil and cracks in anti sway bar near fitting's. This due to engine mount is oil filled. OEM sway bar is made of tubular steel and they crack easy. Replacement sway bar is solid steel. Here's the kicker. When they pull the lower frame to service oil pan. The engine mount and sway bar are attached to that frame. A honest mechanic should only charge for parts ($35 for mount and $100 for sway bar) and maybe a extra hour. My mechanic did all in 5 hours. FYI gasket is only $35 bucks. Good luck

SOURCE: how do you remove the oil pan on 2001 grand prix

Remove the motor mount bolts on both sides. Using a jack & wood block, jack the engine high enough to allow the pan clearance enough for removal. Use wood blocks(4 by 4) at motor mounts & lower engine mounts onto the blocks. Lower & remove jack & block at jack. Remove pan bolts & carefully using a large pry bar or common screwdriver pry the pan away from engine . Good luck!

Remove oil pan


oil pan seals can be purchased from any auto store or online, remove the oil pan, remove all traces of the old seal from the oil pan& the oil case, refit oil pan with new seal/gasket in place & tighten bolts in a clockwork fashion to the torque recommended in your owners manual, refill with oil to the level recommended in your owners manual, job done -at home this will save lots of money & can be completed in under 2hours by even a novice mechanic with a Haynes or Chilton's manual.

Flush the transmission coolant an replace it?


Don't flush you will create problems

There is a drain plug on trans pan &
instructions,at least some, on pan

You can fill the trans,run it, warm up
& then drain as may times as you want

Takes 4 quarts

When your tired of that, remove the pan
change the filter,clean pan & replace

The gasket is silicone & is reused

I fill mine from a 3/8" pipe plug at the tail housing
Need 6' long 5/16" Hex driver

You need the proper container that holds 2 quarts
& blow it in with air hose attached

You can check the level by removing the 1/8" pipe
plug in center of drain plug with a T30 torx bit

2001 A4 thermostat location


Hello! Ignore my request regarding the engine size, The thermostat is well hidden..Standard labor to replace is 2.0 hours...Thermostat is part # 06B-121-111-G....
Step 1: Drain coolant...

Remove bottom belly pan... Remove coolant reservior tank cap... Remove plastic clip holding coolant sensor in place at lower radiator hose/pipe... With bucket/catch pan underneath, remove sensor and let coolant drain...


Step 2: Remove upper radiator hose...

Remove the small hose connecting the coolant reservoir to the upper radiator hose... Then remove the larger hose from the hard pipe running along the intake and from the radiator... You'll need to pop up (but not off) the metal clip holding the hose to the radiator, then firmly pull back..

Step 3: Remove intake hose (throttle body to inter-cooler)...

Remove driver's side headlight (not necessary but makes it a lot easier). Loosen clamp at each end and remove hose...

Step 4: Remove throttle body...

Remove electrical connector and 4 hex bolts (5mm)...

Step 5: Loosen serpentine belt and slip off of alternator...

Use a box-end or adjustable wrench on tensioner, pull to the right... Carefully slip belt off alternator (towards front of car). Allow to hang loose below...

Step 6: Remove alternator bolts...

Remove 4 bolts holding alternator to bracket...

Step 8: Remove vertical support piece from intake manifold to block...

Remove the two bolts holding the support piece (6mm hex)...

Step 9: Remove bolt from metal hose on thermostat; remove bolt from top of oil cooler...

This will allow you to move the hard pipe away from thermostat... Then wiggle it free from the pipe afterwards...

Bolt holding the hard pipe on the right, two bolts holding the thermostat to the block on the left...

Step 10: Remove upper and lower hoses from t-stat. Remove electrical connector on back side...

Step 11: Remove 2 bolts holding thermostat to block, and remove thermostat...See photo below...Guru...Saailer

My transmission is slipping on my 2001 lincoln ls how do i add transmission fluid


If you have no leaks,get under it & check it over

Then you have a bad Pressure Control Solenoid Pack
inside the trans pan,common on an LS

IF,I repeat IF,it is has been slipping at all & you drove
it at all,even a couple of days,your done,the trans
will have to come out.

I have an LS & also once own a trans repair shop

Now I fill mine from a 3/8" Allen Plug on the rear extension
housing

The factory way is to remove the 1/8" pipe plug in the center
of the trans pan oil drain plug

Either way you have to have a special container for the fluid
& compressed air to blow it in there.

Filter for transmission located for a 2001 dodge stratus.


jack up the car and put it on stands. remove the drivers side plastic shield next to the transmission. remove the 10mm bolts from the rear and sides of the trans and loosen the ones in front. keep a pan under the trans as you will drain the fluid this way. once you have the fluid out, remove the remaining bolts and drain the last of the fluid. The filter is visible under the trans. Be sure to remove the o-ring in the hole. Replace the filter and make sure it seats in place. Scrape off any silicone gasket material and install the pan gasket and pan. The bolts torque to 165 inch pounds or about 13 ft/lbs. Add in 4 quarts of transmission fluid. Start the car, keep your foot on the break and shift the car into each of the gears to fill up the trans piping with fluid.
