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

Have you looked underneath? Could be the oil pan gasket or more likely the rear main seal.

SOURCE: Request torque spec for oil pan bolts on a 2001

The torque spec is 14 Newton Meters or 124 Inch Pounds. You may consider replacing the gasket. That is one of the easiest ones to do.
Good luck

Oil leak on driveway coming from front of engine


Dear Sir,
Here is the oil leaking Problem Identifying Technique

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket are common.

  • The intake manifold plenum gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption/burning and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.
  • External oil leaks from valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets (front or rear), and the rear crankshaft (rear main) seal area are common. The rear main seal is an unlikely source. Normally, the bearing cap mating surfaces (as well as the sealing surface between the oil pan and bearing cap) are the source for the leaks.
  • Engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from theintake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.
  • If the oil filter casing shows signs of distortion from excessive oil pressure, theoil pump should be replaced.
  • Often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
  • Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

    Transmission filter how to change it in a 96 Plymouth voyager


    raise and secure on stands. loosen transmission pan bolts one at a time, starting back to front. do not completely remove them just yet. have a bucket or pan ready to catch about 1 gallon of fluid.when all are loose gently pry downward on rear of pan to break seal.careful..fluid will come out at this point.one at a time remove rear bolts to allow pan to drop a little at a time.once pan is removed,remove old filter. clean pan and all mating surfaces. make sure there is no oil or grease on gasket surfaces. install new filter and filter gasket(small round rubber gasket).install new gasket and pan. tighten bolts evenly but dont over tighten.refill with clean fluid and check for leaks.make sure to check fluid level after each quart is added. engine should be running to get proper reading.too much or too little can damage your transmission.

    What will i need to do to get a new transmition fluid filter into my 2000 buick regal LS 3.8 letter, not supercharged, I know i need to get the tranny fluid out and drop the pan but after that im in...


    Procedure pasted below. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

    Drain, Refill & Filter Service

    1. The fluid should be drained when warm so contaminants are in suspension in the transaxle fluid.
    2. Raise and safely support the vehicle on safety stands.
    3. Place a suitable drain pan under the transaxle fluid pan.
    4. There is no drain plug for changing the transaxle fluid, so fluid change on most automatics is messy. Draining the fluid involves loosening some bolts, removing others, and, after the pan is loosened, letting the fluid run out from the joint between the pan and gasket and the transaxle body. Use a drain pan with a large enough opening to accommodate draining the fluid from a large section of the pan.
    5. There are twenty oil pan bolts. Loosen and remove only the bolts from the front and sides of the pan.
    6. Loosen the rear bolts about four turns.

    WARNING Do not pry between the oil pan and the aluminum transaxle case. A prying tool could mark, scratch or gouge the gasket sealing rail making it impossible for the replacement gasket to provide a satisfactory seal.
    1. Lightly tap the pan with a rubber mallet to loosen and allow the fluid to drain.


    NOTE If the transaxle fluid is very dark or has a burnt smell, transaxle damage is indicated. Have the transaxle checked professionally.
    1. Remove the remaining bolts, the pan and the gasket. Hold the pan level to keep a small amount of fluid in the bottom. This allows you to check the sediments in the pan for contaminants. Remove the pan and set aside.
    2. The transaxle oil filter has a small neck that is a press-fit into the transaxle case. It should pull straight out. A little careful prying may be required. The rubber grommet that accepts the neck on the filter will likely remain in the transaxle case. Use a small screwdriver to carefully remove the seal. Use care not to damage the case sealing surface.
    3. Inside the pan should be a small magnet. Inspect the oil pan magnet for small bits of steel. The factory places the magnet here to trap stray metal particles. Excessive amounts of steel shavings indicate internal transmission damage. A small amount of sediment in the pan is normal as the friction elements wear.
    4. If desired, use side cutters to open up the transaxle oil filter assembly by cutting or prying the metal crimping away from the top of the filter and by pulling the filter apart. Inspect the filter for excessive amounts of the following: clutch plate assembly fiber material, indicating clutch distress; bronze slivers, indicating bushing wear; steel particles, indicating internal transaxle wear.

    To install:
    1. Clean all parts well. Clean all traces of old gasket off of the oil pan gasket rail as well as the sealing surface on the transaxle. Use care not to damage the sealing surface on either area.
    2. Inspect the oil pan for damage to the sealing surface and dents or cracks in the pan.
    3. If the oil filter seal came out of the case, install it using a socket as a driver. Gently tap in with a plastic mallet. Using the same plastic mallet, gently tap the filter neck in place.
    4. The design of the steel-core factory gasket is such that it may be reusable, if not bent or otherwise damaged. Note that most replacement transaxle oil filters come with a new gasket. Lay the oil pan gasket on the pan and install the pan to the case. Normally, no sealer is used. Start a few bolts at the ends of the pan to hold it and to keep the gasket from moving out of position. Install all 20 bolts and tighten to 97 inch lbs. (11 Nm). Do not overtighten or the gasket could be squeezed out of position and/or the bolt threads in the aluminum transaxle case could be damaged.
    5. Lower the vehicle to the floor.
    6. To refill the transaxle from just a bottom pan removal, 7.4 quarts of DEXRON® IIE or DEXRON® III will be required. Use a funnel to reach the filler/dipstick tube. Use care not to spill fluid in the engine compartment.
    7. Check for leaks.

    Oil leak onto garage floor either coming from oil pan gasket or oil filter not sure wich one


    Clean the filter and pan with a spray cleaner, run engine for a few miutes.
    recheck oil leak.
    Probably is rear main seal leaking, very common trouble.
    If not leaking much, keep drip pan under car to keep floor clean and drive on.
    Most cars do leak after they age a little. The black line in the middle of the road is oil leaking from cars. Very common.

    How to remove oil pan from 1994 olds acheiva


    raise car, remove any obstruction from out of the way of the oil pan. if you arent pulling the motor it will mean you need to drop the front k member. after that remove all bolts from pan, pry it off with a putty knife, remove old gasket with razor knife, reapply gasket, possibly adding RTV silicone if your car needs it. reverse all other steps and you are clear. unless you know for sure its just the oil pan leaking i would suggest changing front and rear main seals on the crank as well.

    2002 Jeep Wrangler appears the rear of the oil pan gasket is leaking. How hard is it to change out and any tips/


    It is the oil pan gasket all you have to do is drop the oil pan clean the bottom of the engine block and the surface of the oil pan and install the oil pan again. a very simple process. Make sure that it is not the rear main crank seal that is leaking. If it is the rear main then you will have to remove the tranny to replace the rear main seal.
