How to get the tranmission pan unscrewed to change Gasket 1984 chevy c10


If you are going to change the gasket, you should also change the filter at the same time, especially if it hasn't been done recently. You will need a large drain pan to catch oil in because there is no drain plug. Remove the bolts down both sides of the trans pan, 1/2" I believe, and loosen the back ones 3 or 4 turns. Loosen and slowly remove the bolts on the front of the pan because oil will start to drain from there. Once the oil has drained remove the back bolts and drop the pan. clean it out good and check for "stuff". It's normal to see silver filings in the oil but an excessive amount or actual pieces indicate a problem. Two screws should remove the filter. Replace it and put the new gasket on and set the pan in place. Bolt it on. Torque specs for these bolts are 12-13 ft.-lbs for the Turbo 350 and 400. The 700R4 is torqued to 18 ft.-lbs.

If you have trouble getting at the rear bolts on the trans pan, you may need to unbolt the trans mount and lift the tailshaft a little with a jack to get enough room to get it there. Be gentle doing it.Hope this helps.

Hi.i have a 2003 Jaguar x-type.my problem is that when i changed my transmission oil,now all the oil leaks from the bottom.i don't know from where and why.there is a problem with the pressure ,and now all...


It sounds like you have the seal crimped which is a common issue. Pull and clean the old seal off both the pan and the transmission. Apply a thin steady bead of Form-A-Gasket to the pan and the transmission where the seal makes contact and then carefully replace the pan with the seal in place and tighten all the bolts to 20 lbs torque. Then to 30 lbs torque, be careful not to strip any bolts by over tightening. Let this setup for at least 30 minutes. When you put the bolts back in place, start with one in the center of the pan at 12 o'clock, then 6 o'clock, then 3 then 9 then replace the corners and fill in the rest working from side to side until they are all in place.

How to change the oil pan on my 2000 Ford Contour 4cyl.......I was told at the oil change place that it was all rusted out and leaking and needs to be replaced....How big a job is this???? Can I do this,...


It shouldn't be that big of a deal. If the oil pan is the only part that has oil on it, it is most likely an oil pan gasket or rtv sealant that needs to be replaced. If you have actual holes in the pan then your problem is probably bigger. Depending on how bad the rust is, getting those fasenters out might present a problem so I would try turning a couple before draining all the oil. If the bolts turn then drain the oil from the plug as if you were doing an oil change. There are twelve of these bolts and there is a proper untightening and tightening sequence which is difficult to explain without a diagram but try and work in a spiral pattern from the center. Once it is off make sure you scrape all rtv off and any oil residue otherwise it will leak again. Re-apply rtv or whatever ford recommends and when it is ready, put it back trying to tighten the bolts from the center working your way out in a criss cross spiral pattern. Hope all goes well
