SOURCE: Removal of Oil pan

did you try giving it a gentle smack with a rubber hammer? these pans are usually glued on with silicone and will not just fall off after unbolting... sometimes you need to get something like a paint scraper and slide it between block and rail to seperate the two.

SOURCE: Trying to remove trany pan. All bolts are out. Pan is loose but is hung up on something. Possibly a cable bracket. Help!

It takes a star driver from above to loosen the "clip". Helps to have small hands and there is not much room to work with.

SOURCE: pontiac montana oil pan bolt diagram for removal

If all the bolts are off, then the gasket is holding the oil pan in place and your going to have to tap it with a mallet, Not a hammer but a mallet so you don not damage the oil pan. Good luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: I'm trying to remove my oil pan on a 2000

I am not sure, But there could be six more bolts to remove. They will be on the side of the pan, about half way up. three on each side. Sorry for guessing, I work on to many makes and models. Also the gaskets do hold the pan on tight sometimes. If there are no extra bolts then carefully pry it off.

How can I change my 3.0 Liter oil pan gasket


Hi, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

I actually own a 1995 Dodge Spirit 3.0 and its not to difficult. The hardest part is removing the bracket on the transmission so you can remove the dust cover for the flywheel. (1) Drain the oil. (2) Remove the transmission bracket and the dust cover. (3) Remover all the pan bolts except one, just loosen this one so you can pry the pan off, because the pan will be stuck on. (4) Clean the engine block and the oil pan very clean. (5) Install the gasket OR sealer which ever it calls for and install the pan and fill with new oil and filter. Hope this helps and please visit my Auto-Repair-Website: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Place a drain pan under the transmission.

  6. Remove the oil pan bolts from the front and sides of the pan only.
  7. Loosen the rear oil pan mounting bolts about 4 turns.

  12. Remove and discard the filter seal. The filter seal may be stuck in the pump; if necessary, carefully use pliers or another suitable tool to remove the seal.

  5. Install the catalytic converter.

  7. Apply a small amount of sealant GM P/N 12346004 (Canadian P/N 10953480), or equivalent to the threads of the oil pan drain plug, if equipped.
  8. Install the oil pan drain plug, if equipped. Tighten the plug to 13 lb ft (18 Nm).
  9. Lower the vehicle.
  10. Fill the transmission to the proper level with DEXRON® III transmission fluid.
  11. Check the COLD fluid level reading for initial fill only.
  12. Inspect the oil pan gasket for leaks.
4L80E/4L85E To Remove:
  1. Raise and suitably support the vehicle.
  2. Place a drain pan under the transmission oil pan. Drain the transmission fluid and install the plug. Tighten the drain plug to 13 lb ft (18 Nm).
  3. Support the transmission with a transmission jack.
  4. Remove the transmission crossmember.
  5. Disconnect the range selector cable end from the transmission range selector lever ball stud. NOTE: It is not necessary to remove the selector cable from the bracket.
  6. Remove the transmission range selector cable bracket. Reposition the bracket and cable.
  7. Remove the oil pan bolts. NOTE: The transmission oil pan gasket is reusable. Replace as needed.
  8. Remove the oil pan and gasket.
  9. Remove the magnet from the bottom of the pan, if necessary.
  10. Remove the oil filter and neck seal.
To Install:
  1. Clean the transmission and the oil pan sealing surfaces with solvent.
  2. Install the filter neck seal and filter.
