2001 1.5l. Why can't timing chain be replaced without dropping sump?


Most vehicles with timing chains have a cover over the chain that it attached to the oil pan. There are gaskets that have to be replaced between the two and removal of the pan is recommended to do this properly. Trying to avoid it can result in a number of issues, from gasket material falling into the sump to oil leaks from not having the lower part of the cover sealed properly.

95 GMC 2.2L motor crank to cam timing, is it a belt or chain? Want to buy this truck that I think has jumped it's timing.


It's a chain. procedure listed below. Thanks for using fixya.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the power steering fluid reservoir from the radiator shroud, then remove the upper fan shroud.
  3. Carefully release the belt tension, then remove the serpentine drive belt.
  4. Remove the alternator and brackets from the engine, then position them aside.
  5. Remove the crankshaft pulley and hub. For details, please refer to the procedure located earlier in this section.
  6. As necessary, disconnect the lower radiator hose clamp at the water pump, then loosen and/or remove the oil pan.

There may be bolts attaching the front of the oil pan to the timing cover. If so, make sure they are removed before attempting to remove the cover.
  1. Unfasten the crankcase (timing) front cover bolts, then disengage cover from the engine. Make sure all bolts are removed and be careful not to force and damage the cover.
  2. Carefully remove the old crankshaft seal from the cover using a suitable prytool. Be very careful not to distort the front cover or to score the end of the crankshaft.

To install:
  1. Carefully remove all traces of gasket or sealant from the mating surfaces.
  2. Lubricate the lips of a new seal with clean engine oil, then use a seal centering tool (such as J-35468 or equivalent) to install the seal to the front cover. Leave the tool in position in the seal until the cover is installed.
  3. Apply a 3 / 8 in. (10mm) wide by 5 / 16 (5mm) thick bead of RTV sealer to the oil pan at the front crankcase cover sealing surface. Then apply a 1 / 4 in. (6mm) by 1 / 8 in. (3mm) thick bead of RTV to the crankcase front cover at the block sealing surface.
  4. Install the crankcase front cover to the engine using the seal tool to assure it is properly centered and prevent damage to the hub. Tighten the cover retaining bolts to 97 inch lbs. (11 Nm), then remove the seal centering tool.
  5. Install the lower radiator hose clamp at the water pump, then install and secure the oil pan, as applicable.
  6. If removed, install the oil pan.
  7. Install the crankshaft pulley and hub.
  8. Reposition and secure the alternator with brackets.
  9. Install the serpentine drive belt, then install the upper fan shroud.

Need to know how to remove oil pan with engine still in vehicle on 96 Ford Wind Star 3.8 engine. What will I have to remove to get access to it.


3.8L Engine Fig. 2: Oil pan assembly - 3.8L engine 89693g43.gif
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  3. Drain and recycle the engine oil.
  4. Remove the oil filter.
  5. Remove the dual converter Y-pipe assembly.

  7. Remove the engine rear plate/converter housing cover.
  8. Remove the retaining bolts and remove the oil pan. To install:
  9. Clean the gasket mating surfaces thoroughly.
  10. Trial fit oil pan to cylinder block. Ensure that enough clearance has been provided to allow the oil pan to be installed without sealant being scraped off when pan is positioned under the engine.
  11. Apply a bead of silicone sealer to the oil pan flange. Also apply a bead of sealer to the front cover/cylinder block joint and fill the grooves on both sides of the rear main seal cap. NOTE: When using silicone rubber sealer, assembly must occur within 15 minutes after sealer application. After this time, the sealer may start to harden and its sealing effectiveness may be reduced.

  13. Install a new oil filter.

I am looking to buy a 96 ford f250 powerstroke 7.3L. It needs a new oil pan gasket and or a rear main seal. I just want to make sure im not getting screwed on this deal. how much would it cost to repair...


The pan gasket is cheap. Remove the pan install new gasket. A shop would charge around $100. Now the main seal, it will run you $800+ to fix. Difficult and time consuming.

Doing a timing chain and vct on right bank nearest


You do not need to remove the upper oil pan. There are 2 bolts that go through the oil pan into the front cover that has to be removed. You do not need to remove the transfer case to remove the front timing cover. After you have the bolts under the front cover that go through that lower oil pan, and the bolts all around the timing cover off, just work the cover slowly till it pops free.

Thanks Jay!

Leaking gasket of tining belt


do you have a 3.1L V6? The timing cover gasket seals the timing components, it is located behind the belt drive system (alt, a/c, p/s etc.) all of these components must be removed to change this gasket, also the oil pan lower seal gets changed at the same time. The oil pan gasket includes the rear pan seal and the side seals and on for the rear of the pan, the engine must be lifted out of it mounts to change this gasket. It takes time to do these repairs and each shop has an hourly rate per hour on labor. The cost of the parts will be relatively the same at any shop, labor will differ. I hope this helps to answer your questions.
