SOURCE: I need to change the oil pan gasket. Is it as easy as it looks?

Its more involved than you think. You need to look at the passenger side of the engine. There is a support bracket under the crank pulley or just inside of that, that needs to come down or removed to get the pan out.

How to change the gasket on the oil filter adapter

Easy fix I just did. (replacing the oil filter adapter gasket which is a common leak). Remove the air cleaner tube and housing. Release the tension on the belt. Remove the two front bolts on the air compressor. They are nuts but the stud will come out too which is fine. Under the car loosen the third air compressor bolt. This will give you enough room to loosen the hidden bolt on the oil filter adapter. It only needs to be loosened as the adapter is slotted there. Remove the other two bolts on the oil filter adapter and remove. Replace the gasket and install.

I have a 1996 Caddy Sedan De Ville with the Northstar engine. Where is the oil sending unit or does it have one?

The oil pressure sending unit is behind the front engine mount. You will need a deep special oil pressure socket to remove and install.It is NOT an easy task. There is no short cut but you might find it easier to remove the oil filter adapter, if you do that you should replace the "O" rings on the adapter. The oil pressure sender is mounted on the filter adapter

Looks like the oil is leaking out right above the

oil filter screws onto an adapter housing which also has the pressure sending unit on it (above oil filter). This adapter housing bolts to the block with 3 bolts. if oil appears to be leaking from where the adapter housing meets the block (especially at the rear side of engine near bottom), then you need to replace the siamese o-rings between the adapter housing and the block ($12 part at dealer). remove lowest 12mm bolt and loosen top 2 12 mm bolts(top 2 bolts won't come out unless you drop the engine down, but loosening 1 inch is all you need), replace o-rings and retighten bolts. be careful not to get dirt/grit between block and adapter. just finished doing this to son's 95 2.7 v6 which was leaving an 8" puddle of oil after idling for only 1 minute-worked perfect

Leaks oil at the oil coolent adapter how to go about removel

To remove the oil cooler adapter.
First remove the oil filter. Then remove the stud/bolt that the oil filter spins on. The adapter can be removed at this time. There is an "O" ring behind the adapter and a relief valve that will need to be replaced. Reverse to install and make sure to torque the stud/bolt to 39 ft.lbs.

Oil filter adapter lines from block adapter to remote oil filter

The lines can be disconnected from both ends and the bracket removed but to remove the lines from the front (they cannot be removed to the rear) loosen and remove the drivers side engine mount bolt. Use a block of wood between a floor jack and the cast aluminum oil pan and jack the engine assy. up slightly (just enough to "snake" the oil filter adapter lines by the drivers side engine mount. Leave engine jacked up slightly while you "snake" the new lines into position and install the end at the engine oil filter adapter. You can then lower the engine reinstall engine mount bolt and finish the install of the lines by installing the oil filter end of the adapter lines and attach the bracket (that comes with the GM lines) to the block.
