Remove oil pan 1992 land cruiser

I cant seem to remove the oil pan. The stabilizing bar, or idle arm is in the way. I removed the "castle bolt" and pin from each side and hit them with a hammer but it wont budge. Is the bolt threaded in the "knuckle" which wont allow it to be "beat" out? I think I stripped one side....frustrated

SOURCE: cant remove oil pan

You should be able to remove it after you take off the engine mount bolts and then jack up the engine, at the bell housing. This should give you enough clearance to get it out.

SOURCE: pontiac montana oil pan bolt diagram for removal

If all the bolts are off, then the gasket is holding the oil pan in place and your going to have to tap it with a mallet, Not a hammer but a mallet so you don not damage the oil pan. Good luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: steering knuckle - the treads where stripped for caliper bolt

Yes, that can be repaired. You will need a helicoil kit, available at most parts stores. generally the kit includes a drill bit, about ten coils and an install tool. If I remember correctly it is about $30. Your other option is to find a knuckle in a local scrapyard (likely the same price as the helicoil kit)

Hello ggagne.
Here is the procedure.

  1. Raise and suitably support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the left tire and wheel assembly.
  3. Remove the pinch bolt from the lower intermediate steering shaft
  4. Loosen all insulator clamp attaching bolts.
  5. Place a jack stand under the center of the rear frame cross member.
  6. Remove the rear frame-to-body bolts.
  7. Lower the rear of the frame just enough to gain access to the stabilizer shaft.
  8. Remove the insulator clamp bolts and the clamps from the frame.
  9. Remove the insulators from the stabilizer bar.
  10. Remove the stabilizer bar links from the control arms.
  11. Pull the stabilizer shaft rearward.
  1. Insert the stabilizer shaft to the left side of the vehicle. Important: DO NOT tighten the stabilizer link nut at this time. The weight of the vehicle must be supported by the control arms such that you can obtain the vehicle design trim heights before tightening the link nut.
  2. Loosely install the stabilizer shaft link at the control arm.
  3. Install the insulators on to the stabilizer bar.
  4. Connect the insulator clamps to the frame.
    • Tighten the stabilizer shaft bracket bolts to 48 Nm (35 ft. lbs.) .
  5. Raise the frame into position while you guide the steering shaft onto the gear.
  6. Install the new frame-to-body attaching bolts.
  7. Remove the jack stand.
  8. Install the pinch bolt and tighten.

Where oil plug drain on 99 land cruiser

Always look for an oil drain plug on the bottom of the oil pan, below the engine block.

Don't worry, the transmission pan doesn't have an oil drain plug.

It is usually a hex, removable with a wrench.

How can I remove oil pan on 1991 toyota pickup 2wd 2.4 L

There are two ways to get the clearance required to remove the oil pan.
Start by draining the oil pan, after all the oil is out remove the 16 bolts and two nuts holding the oil pan on. You can use a oil pan seal cutter to break the seal or if you don't have one just use a putty knife (it okay to scratch the pan a little but do not bend the flange!) There are two strut bars under the engine that need to come out. One is a square tube about a 1.5 feet long and the other is a typical tubular strut bar, remove both of them.

Once the oil pan is loose the easiest way to get it out is to lift the engine about 2-3 inches. Start by hooking up an engine lift to the front lift point on the engine. You will be pivoting the engine on the transmission mount so you only want to lift at the front of the engine. On the passenger side undo the two bolts on the sides of the motor mount (should be 14mm) and on the driver side undo the nut in the center of the mount (should be 17mm). Now lift the engine 2-3 inches and the oil pan should be able to slide out. Unfortunately the oil pan takes up the entire front part of the engine so there is no room to use a jack if you dont have a car lift.

If you dont have access to an engine lift the you will have to remove the steering rack from below the engine. There are three ball joints that will need to be separated so you will need a pickle fork or some tough screw drivers to pry them apart. Undo the two castle nuts and ball joints on the passenger side and the one on the driver side and undo the big bolt from the pinion arm. You should be able to remove the steering rack now and the oil pan should be able to just come straight down.
