How to change an oil pan on 1991 manual, non turbo Mr2

Got a 1991 Mr2, the motor is very live, everything works. The only problem is that the car keeps loosing oil, not a lot, but it does leave tiny puddles of oil every time I drive of the parking lot. The new pan is not too expansive, but I want to see how it's suppose to be bolted on to the engine so I would know my clearance.

If you are not driving far no problem. If you are just put a quart of oil in it until you get to the station.

Replacing an oil pan gasket on a car shouldn't be too difficult for you, say, about an hour or two. As long as you follow some simple guidelines, the leak should be eliminated. Improper tightening or seating of the gasket material can defeat the purpose of your work. Grab a Haynes manual, or a tech guide for your vehicle, and have it handy.

I would suggest tracking the oil leak to ensure that it's not your front seal on your crankshaft. The amount of oil that you describe sounds like a bit much for an undisturbed oil pan gasket.

Hmmm...I don't think the clearance on your16v engine are that much different than the 8 valve models. On them, all you do is loosen the passenger side engine mount and jack the motor up. Be sure to use a block of wood so you don't bend anything. If you have access to a hoist or can build a support to use a come-along to winch it up it makes things much easier. If fo some reason one does have to loosen the steering yoke, the couplers are down where it attaches to the cross member. There is a pinch bolt you loosen and then it will slide.
If you're losing enough oil in 45 minutes that the oil light comes on or the engine begins rattling, you have more to contend with than an oil pan gasket. OP gaskets drip, not pour. I've installed a pan w/ no gasket and not had the severity of oil loss you describe.

Clunking? Probably one or both wheel bearings. Dude, that car is like UNSAFE to drive!! Jack the rear of the car up and yank on the wheel. If it moves the bearings are bad. Pull in and out and also pry up and down with a bar. Check for broken or bent rear suspension parts, or just plain worn out bushings.

sure sounds like an oil problem to me. if they are not torquing the piston rods appropriately, you could have one loose enough to allow oil pressure drop, and then all kinds of bad things happen. I would get an oil pressure gauge installed on your next engine, so that you know if the pressure is too low. Other than that, you may just be extremely unlucky. Also, are they replacing the entire engine or just the short block?

Well, if the oil light was coming on I would suspect the oil pump or the piston rods were not properly tightened down. Are they replacing the oil pump with every engine?

Lights dont work on my 1991 mr2


Try under the hood near the right side of the car. There are also a couple of fuse boxes with fuses for things under the motor bonnet in the rear. They should be labeled and they are covered with black covers. Hope this helps.

Timing belt broke


No, you can do it in the car, it just makes it a lot easier to do if you drop the motor out.
Space is at a premium in the motor bay, so you have to go through some pretty tight gymnastics if you do leave it in there.
