    I actually got a gasket from the auto store and it was not as easy to install as explained. Exhuast had to be dropped from the header and bolts by the converter, and there was one bolt in the left corner that was hard to get to, needs a swivel. On the right side there's a housing over the right side of the pan which is also attatched to the transmisson housing, this have to be taken off to access the bolts on the right side of the pan. All obstacles taken off, the pan is free to be removed and replaced, installation is reverse of removal.

Loosen all bolts. the pan should drop if not tap it a little. place the gasket sealant on new pan and then right away put the pan on the block before dries, and tighten all bolts in a scarterred pattern

How do I change the oil pan gasket?


Whether it's an engine oil pan (called the 'sump'' in the UK) or a transmission oil pan the principle is the same on all vehicles.
1. Drain the oil

2. Remove the bolts holding the sump/pan in place:

Use a blunt screwdriver -if needed - and prise the oil pan free. remove all traces of the old gasket from the mating surfaces.

Use a smear of sealant to hold the new gasket in the correct position on the pan - this will hold it in place when you refit the pan.

Push the pan into position and put in a front bolt finger-tight. Then put in a rear bolt finger-tight.

Putting in the bolts finger-tight allows you to gently 'move' the pan if needed to put the bolts in one at a time.

When all bolts are in, tighten them with a wrench/socket. Then check them all again for tightness.

It isn't actually a big job .. more 'messy' because of the oil.

Took my 2002 honda accord in for oil change was told I could possibly have an oil leak as oil was low. What could cause this?


Worn gasket seal around pan, worn or loose oil plug, pin hole in pan, someone forgot to put back the oil cap are some suggestions that come to mind.

Think I need oil pan gasket


It's probably the front crank seal or the cam seal. Kinda big job for a novice. The car only has one oil pan. The back one she refered to is for the transmission,if it's automatic. Never saw a oil pan gasket leak on a nissan '96 & up.

Oil Pan Gasket


Before removing the oil pan, drain all the oil from the car. You should be able to remove the pan with basic tools, not sure what socket size though. Once you have the pan off compare the new gasket with the new one to make sure it is the right one. Scrape off the old gasket and replace with the new using a high temp gasket sealant to attach the gasket. Bolt back on to the engine refilling with new oil and checking for leaks. NOTE: your oil pump is protected by your oil pan so be careful not to hurt while sliding in and out of place
