    the valve cover is at top on the motor on top of the cylinder head. if you over tighten the oil pan bolts it will leak

    How tight should the bolts on the oil pan being? What is the required torque? It would be great to get atleast one of the three vehicals running again

SOURCE: Oil is leaking bad and

is the leak visually on the ground, then it seems like you could get under car and wipe a few things and see what leaks, thats a big leak, car would be leaving a smoke screen behind you from getting all over exhaust system. I would have to say, REAR MAIN SEAL BETWEEN MOTOR AND TRANS, OIL FILTER NOT TIGHT, Is oil all over the timing belt? front gasket/seal failure, Oil sending unit, is the light on or pressure gauge work?

Leaking oil at crankshaft pulley


Here's a guess, I've only done a few.
Removing the pulley to change the seal would probably require removing the engine, because after you remove the bolt holding it on, you need to use a "pulley puller" to get it off.
I think there is an easier way.
I think mechanics drop the oil pan and change the gasket without removing the pulley.
Maybe you could call around and find if this is true.
Pulling the pan might not require removing the engine.
Be blessed.

How do I remove oil pump on 2000 Plymouth voyger


The oil pump removal procedure for Plymouth Voyager 2000.
A oil pump is usually located in the oil pan. If you want to change the oil pump and replace it with a new one, roll up your sleeves and get ready for some dirty work.
The procedure to remove oil pump is as follows:--
  • Drive your vehicle up onto ramps or lifts so you have room to work as you pull out the oil pump. You could also use a jack, but make sure you brace the front wheels so they don't roll. In addition, set the emergency break firmly into position so the car doesn't roll.
  • Remove the engine front cover then drain the engine oil and take out the oil pan. It is under the engine and looks like the bottom of the motor.
  • Unscrew the oil pump mounting bolts with a wrench and proceed to remove the oil pump itself by pulling it down and out of the engine. Avoid getting any contaminants into the oil pump assembly while removing.
The Water pump removal procedure for Plymouth Voyager 2000.
The water pump is the heart of the Plymouth Voyager's cooling system, circulating the coolant. When the water pump is faulty, it can cause serious damage to the engine of your Plymouth Voyager.
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable.Place a drain pan underneath the radiator. When the engine is cool, drain the cooling system from the radiator into the pan.
  • Remove the right inner splash shield and the accessory drive belts. Support the engine underneath and remove the right motor mount with the bracket.
  • Take off the front cover and remove the timing belt along with the timing belt idler pulley. Also remove the camshaft sprockets, the rear cover to the timing belt and the alternator with its bracket.
  • Loosen and remove the bolts to the water pump and remove it from the engine.Install the new water pump after inserting a new o-ring gasket. Tighten the bolts to 105-inch lbs. Make sure that the pump can move freely by rotating it by hand.
  • Replace all components in reverse order. Tighten the camshaft sprocket bolts to 75 foot pounds and the timing belt idler pulley to 45 foot pounds.
  • Refill the cooling system with coolant and reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and check for leaks when it reaches normal operating temperatures.

Loud noises coming from the cooling system could be a sign that your water pump needs replacing. A leak in the coolant may also be an indicator. You can expect that a water pump will need to be changed every 70 to 100 thousand miles or so in a Plymouth Voyager vehicle.
Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Oil pan gasket replacement


It shouldn't be hard on that car as the oil pan is exposed. Unplug the oil plug and drain the oil. Then unbolt the oil pan, clean off the old gasket and replace. Make sure you scrape both the pan and the block clean thoroughly and then bolt back up. Don't forgot to replug the drain plug.

Hi, on your 1988 voyager it is not a difficult job to reseal the oil pan, just make sure all parts are clean before reassembly.
