SOURCE: how much to change a oil pan gasket for 2001 grand prix 3.8 gt

If you want to repair the oil pan I would also check lower engine mount for leaking oil and cracks in anti sway bar near fitting's. This due to engine mount is oil filled. OEM sway bar is made of tubular steel and they crack easy. Replacement sway bar is solid steel. Here's the kicker. When they pull the lower frame to service oil pan. The engine mount and sway bar are attached to that frame. A honest mechanic should only charge for parts ($35 for mount and $100 for sway bar) and maybe a extra hour. My mechanic did all in 5 hours. FYI gasket is only $35 bucks. Good luck

SOURCE: engine light 2006 pontiac g6(reset)

first be sure that its the engine light and not the "service" light. the service light will usually illuminate if its time for an oil change. if its the service light ur owners manual should tell u how to reset it. if its ur engine light then try disconnecting ur positive battery cable for 1 minute. that should reset ur ecm and get rid of the engine light. if the engine light comes back on then have a diagnostic scan done to determine whats causing it.

SOURCE: Need torque specs for oil pan gasket

There likely is a spec for oil pan but unless you are a finatic, you really don't need to know what it is. Simple rule: Don't crank down ******* any fastener. If corners near crank ends have larger fasteners, you can tighten them a bit more than on siderails. Before tightening anything, install all bolts finger tight, to ensure that they are not cross threaded. To avoid warping pan, tighten from the center of the pan, working towards both ends, alternating from side to side as you go. When you are finished, go over it again, using the same amount of force on each bolt. As I said, end bolts can if larger in diameter, be tightened more but be careful not to tighten so much that you will either split or push the gasket out the sides.. Anywhere two gasket ends **** together, I recommend using a sensor -safe dab of silicone. An oil pan is not under any mechanical stress or pressure. I have used this method for many years and NEVER had one leak. If you really need #s, small fasteners get about 12-15in lbs, larger ones about 20.

SOURCE: Oil Pan Gasket Replacement - How to - GMC Yukon 2000

No big job Really. Just locate your Drain Plug for the Oil. Thepan is right there, Remove the Bolts around the Pan and Remove. You will lose all of your oil so, Have something there to catch it all. Clean it all around the Edges of the Block where the Pan mounts with Degreaser and Make sure that you Scrape the Old Gasket off of Both the Block and the Pan. Run a Thin Bead of Blue ATV Silicone around the Pan Edge, Lay the Gasket on top of this Silicone. Put another Thin line on top of the Gasket and Reinstall. This Silicone is High Temp Silicone and will Seal Very Well. Make sure to put oil Back in the Motor! Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!

Have a 2006 pontiac g6 leaking oil above starter where is it coming from?


I always buy a service manual from advance or some parts supplier for every vehicle I own, that way the manual tells me how the parts are mounted to the motor and their location to the rest of the motor.
I am not sure where the starter is located on a Pontiac G6 but look above it if you have to use a flashlight, if your oil filter is near it, make sure it is tight and not loose.
Sometimes valve pan gaskets leak and run down the side of motor making us believe oil is coming from another place, just start looking and you will find it.

2007 pontiac g6 transmission filter replacement


Remove the transmission pan - some don't have drain plugs, have a big pan underneath to catch the fluid. Pull filter and install filter on. Clean any debris from pan. Install gasket onto pan and install pan back onto transmission. Torque bolts to factory specs. Fill with approved ATF.

Hope this is helpful :-)

Hi,

My name is Ben and I'm your guru, i.e., mentor, an influential teacher or popular expert: a management guru. - origin from Sanskrit, 'weighty, grave' for today.

Removing and replacing an oil pan gasket is a relatively easy task, even for a novice.

Please follow the instructions and you'll have no problem/

  1. Raise the front of the vehicle at least two feet off the ground and support with jack stands.
  2. Drain the oil from the oil pan.
  3. Remove the oil level sensor connector.
  4. Remove the oil pan retaining bolts.
  5. Remove the oil pan.
  6. Remove the oil pan gasket and discard. The gasket CANNOT be reversed.
  7. Clean the oil pan and the cylinder blaock mating surfaces.
  8. Install the new gasket to the oil pan flange.
  9. Replace the bolts and torque to 124 lb. in.
  10. Connect the oil level sensor.
  11. Add the correct amount of oil.
  12. Start the vehicle and check for leaks.

That's the entire process.

Cant get oil plug loose


FIRST: oil the plug (I know it sounds redundant)
1. breaker bar instead of ratchet wrench (buy one if you dont have one)
2. extension bar on breaker bar handle
If Getting desperate:
1. buy a new oil pan plug
2. use a damaged/rounded extraction socket on a breaker bar.
3. use an extension handle on the breaker bar handle
Be prepared to buy (and install)a new oil pan if the threads on the oil pan are ruined.

Installing a new oil pan is "easy" for experienced mechanics, but
replacing one can be involved for 1st-timers - and you'll usually want to buy (and install) a new oil pan gasket with the new oil pan.

That's everything from breaker bar (your minimum for stuck bolts) to replacing plug and pan (the worst-case scenario).

Cracked oil pan on 05 pontiac g6


The car could have hit something on the road that made contact to the oil pan, or if the crack come form the inside the engine. It could have internal engine damage. The best thing to do is to just replace the whole engine with a rebuilt and you'll know that your going to have warranty and have the car for a long time. Good luck and hope this helps.
