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.

Leaking lots of oil around the oil pan


Are you sure the leak is around the oil pan? I had my oil changed at a garage a few weeks ago and they stripped the plug, There was so much oil it looked like it was running out of holes all over the pan. Im not a Fixya pro, but when my pan was leaking like this I just needed a new plug, the pan threads were fine, but check yours to be sure, you may need a pan. Hope I helped :-)

I added oil to my Cadillac and it drained onto the ground


Before adding any more oil, make sure that you have securly replaced and tightened the oil drain plug (which is located on your engine's oil pan, under your car).

Oil Pan drain plug is leaking. Dealer service replaced with oversized tapered plug but still leaking. How big of a job is it to replace oil pan?


you may be able to cure the leak with a thicker, softer gasket on the drain plug. Also the drain plugs come in several oversizes. So if the 1st one doesn't work you can try the next size.

considering the cost of oil pan replacement I would just add a dab of RTV sealant to the drain plug washer next time I had an oil change.

My 2001 Excursion Diesel is leaking oil from the oil pan gasket. Can I just drop the pan to replace the gasket (with a slight forward maneuvering) or do I have to drop the cross bar directly beneath the...


If it is in fact the oil pan gasket that is leaking, then you would first need to drain out the oil through the oil drain plug and recycle the oil. Then you can remove the oil pan and replace the old gasket with a new one, refill with the proper amount of oil. Then you can run the car and see if it still leaks.

your need a valve cover gasket set. It comes with 4 rubber seals for the spark plug tower so oil does not leak on the plugs. Common problem, Simple to fix. Takes about an hour

Oil drain plug leaks, even when replaced with a new one


its going to be the treads of the oil pan. tale it to an auto shop and have them re tap(put new threads) in the oil pan and this will fix the problem. hope this helps.

Coolant leaking from underneath car near oil pan.


THIS IS STRANGE, BECAUSE THE NEXT PAN BEHIND THE OIL PAN IS THE TRANSMISSION PAN. UNLESS MECURY HAS DEVELOPED SOME STRANGE SYSTEM THERE SHOULD BE NO WATER OR COOLANT ANYWHERE IN THAT LOCATION? IF THE PLASTIC PLUG IS LEAKING IT CAN BE FIXED BY REMOVING IT AND WRAPPING THE THREAD WITH TEFLON TAPE AND RE-INSERTING IT AND TIGHTEN IT. IT THE PAN ITSELF IS LEAKING, THERE ARE ONLY TWO THINGS HERE. ONE, YOU CAN RE-TIGHTEN THE BOLTS TO SEE IF THEY ARE LOOSE AND SEE IT THIS STOPS THE LEAKING. OR, IF THE LEAKING DOESN'T STOP, YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE PAN GASKET WITH A NEW ONE AND REFILL THE TRANSMISSION WITH NEW OIL. YOU MIGHT AS WELL CHANGE THE FILTER WHEN YOU HAVE THE PAN OFF, BECAUSE IT IS PROBABLY OVERDUE. I THINK YOU WILL FIND THIS LEAK IS A STICKY RED FLUID CALLED ATF OR AUTOMATIC TRANS. FLUID. THAT WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED. NEW FILTER, NEW GASKET RETORQUE THE BOLTS, IMPORTANT, DON'T WANT THAT THING FALLING OFF, NEW FLUID, YOUR BABY SHOULD PURR AND NOT WIZ ON THE FLOOR ANYMORE. NOT SURE HOW TO DO ALL THIS? BEAT FEET TO THE NEAREST PARTS STORE AND BUY OR ORDER THE CHILTON OR HAYNES MANUAL FOR 93GRAND MARQUIS AND YOU WILL HAVE PICTURES AND STORIES YOU WON'T BELIEVE! CAN'T GO WRONG! GOOD LUCK!
