Oil Pan Gasket Replacement/ Oil Pan removal


yes the starter does have to be removed but also the engine mounts must be also as the engine must be raised about 10 " to get the pan out. if you do try this make sure you have very very sturdy jack stands for the engine to just a jack as the jack will lift it but wont maintain it long enough to safely remove the pan and reinstall it......good luck and be very carefull

WHAT IS A PVC HOSE IN MAZDA MPV


The PCV is a valve and a hose, that sucks engine ring bypass gasses and reburns them. if it plugs up the engine leaks oil.

if the hose cracks it sucks air and the AFR goes lean and bucks.

jerks.

only on engines (unstated) that use a MAF sensor.

engine that use a MAP sensor ,race too fast with full power and no jerk with air leaks.

next time post engine type. as we can not guess this.

Hi i have a 1994 dodge caravan it is leaking oil can this be fix im worry that we would have to save money for a van for my kids thanks


The Chrysler minivan products all had leaking problems. I have had 5 or 6 different Dodge or Plymouth minivans from 88 to 99. How bad is it. The most common thing is Valve cover leaks. Front and rear seals in the engine leak as well as the oil pan gasket. If its leaking a little bit at a time open the hood and look at the front and rear of the engine. Do you see grease and oil that has gone down the sides of the engine? Do you see a lot of grease on the engine with some clean streaks going through it. You may be able to see where its leaking from. If you know someone that knows what their doing have them change the leaky gasket/s. If not you can probably have it repaired for less than buying another van unless other things are seriously wrong with the van.
Hope this helps... Dale

My 2002 maza mpv fan constantly keeps running while it's cold outside and when the car is turned off is it a computer problem.


No, it's the fan module itself. They were recalled but not ALL of them. Mine did the same thing and yet it wasn't part of the recall, go figure. The problem is that if it runs all the time it will run down your battery. The other issue is that sometimes it won't run at all and can cause your engine to overheat. I had mine replaced, cost me a couple hundred bucks. Hopefully yours is under the recall. Check with your mazda dealer and don't let them feed you a line of ****. It's a known issue.

Missing Oil????


Sounds like a broken oil ring and your burning it. If so you can bet the converter is already shot.

Have a Cylinder Leak Down Test ,done ,to determine the engine,integrity. Also look at the exhaust gas emissions with an analyzer. Pull the spark plugs,that will tell you which cyl is oil fouled

Mazda 2001 MPV just serviced. Noticed green


check under the hood and see if you can see where its leaking from might be a hose clamp that you can tighten , if not place cardboard / paper under engine and leave it for a few hours ,return later,any drops will give you an idea of where the leak is. with the engine cold top up the radiator with water only.. do not add antifreeze its only going to leak out again..call the repair shop when they are open..

My van is burning oil (a lot of it) I just put in 4qt of oil two weeks ago, and again it's empty. What can i do to fix this


First you need to determine if the van is "burning" oil or "leaking" oil. If the exhaust is bluish in color, this is a good indicator that you are burning oil and you probably need a valve job. A common issue with vehicles this age is an oil leak around the valve cover gasket. Oil leaks and burns off on the manifold. If when you open the hood and smell a great deal of oil, this is more likely the cause of using so much oil. The best way is to inspect the engine compartment first. If you can't spot any excess oil there, get under the van and look for a leak near the oil pan, oil plug, or more forward toward the engine compartment. Hope you find this answer helpful. Best of luck.

There is a very small leak under my 2002 Sebring. I looked under the car and it seems to be coming from one of the oil pan bolts. What could be causing it and How do I fix it?
