How to remove oil pan?

I've read where to remove the oil pan, you need to remove the transaxle, or the transmission, or even drop the engine. What is the easiest way to replace the oil pan?

Also, I've had trouble finding a replacement. Any ideas?

    no, there is a 1/8"-1/4" hole in the pan. It's been JB Weld patched twice.

Junkyard for the pan. Either that or go an import specific shop, they should be able to at least you find one.
I highly doubt that you have to drop the whole engine. You shouldn't have to completely remove the transaxle to pull the oil pan but you probably do have to pull a few bolts.  By the way, if your oil pan is leaking, you can most likely just replace the oil pan gasket unless it is really warped.

Where is transmission range sensor for 99 plymouth?


The TRS is a speed sensor located in the valved body, attached to the transaxle. It has a connector on one side, and the other side is a bolt holding it to the transaxle, and a rod plugged into the valve body. The transmission range sensor is located within the transaxle.To replace it or to check if the part fits you need to take apart the oil pan and valve body.


Here summary procedure:


Take off the battery negative cable.
Bleed oil.
Remove air cleaner assembly.
Put lever in first gear.
Disconnect the gear shift cable from lever.
Remove the manual valve lever from the shaft.
Disconnect the cable from TRS connector.
Raise vehicle on hoist.

Do operations in reverse order, when refitting torque the valve body bolts to 105 in lbs.


I hope this helps you,Ken.

Transmission is taking long to change gears. Car struggles to go up hill.


TRANSMISSION IS SLIPPING.TIME FOR TRANSMISSION FLUID AND FILTER CHANGE IF CAR HAS OVER 100000 MILES .CHECK UNDERNEATH CAR AND SEE IF TRANSMISSION OIL PAN IS WET OR LOOK LIKE PAN GASKET IS LEAKING.YOU NEED TO REPLACE TRANSMISSION FILTER AND FLUID.YOUR TRANSMISSION DONT HAVE FILLER TUBE YOU HAVE TO ADD A PINT AT A TIME AND REMOVE CHECK PLUG ON TRANSAXLE LOCATED NEAR THE PAN ADJACENT TO THE ENGINE OIL DRAIN PLUG.THIS IS A DANGEROUS PROCEDURE YOUR CAR HAS TO BE LIFTED UP IN THE AIR ON A LIFT. CAR HAS TO BE LEVEL AND ENGINES HAS TO RUN FIVE MINUTES FOR TRANSMISSION TO BE IN OPERATING TEMPERATURE. ONCE TRANSMISSION GET OPERATING TEMPERATURE REMOVE THE CHECK PLUG.IF NO FLUID COME OUT YOU NEED TO ADD MORE FLUID NO MORE THAN A PINT AT A TIME.IF FLUID POUR OUT CHECK PLUG HOLE YOU HAVE TOO MUCH FLUID IN TRANSMISSION.IF FLUID DRIP A SLOW DRIP YOUR FLUID LEVEL CORRECT.TO ADD FLUID YOU REMOVE THE VENT FILL PLUG ON TOP TRANSAXLE WHERE DIP STICK USED TO BE LOCATED.YOU CAN DO THIS JOB YOUR SELF.YOU NEED TO BE ON LEVEL SOLID GROUND AND YOU NEED JACK STANDS AND A FLOOR JACK. LIKE I SAID THIS IS A DANGEROUS JOB AND YOU NEED ABOUT 12M SOCKET TO REMOVE TRANSAXLE CHECK PLUG.

What is involved with replacing the oil pan on 1998 GMC Sierra?


  • Step 1 Raise the truck using the proper equipment. Use a ramp or a jack and jack stands to support the vehicle securely by following all directions for use provided by this equipment's manufacturer.
  • Step 2 Drain all oil from the Silverado by placing an oil drip pan under the vehicle's engine block, directly under the oil drain plug. The drain plug is located on the oil pan, between the vehicle's tires underneath the vehicle. Use a wrench to loosen and remove the plug allowing the oil to drain into the pain below.
  • Step 3 Notice the various items attached to the oil pan or in the way of the oil pan dropping. For the oil pan to drop, remove the negative battery cable, front differential (only for four-wheel drive vehicles) and the under body shield by using a wrench or socket set.
  • Step 4 Remove the oil pan shield by loosening the four bolts holding it in place along the edges of the shield. Then, remove the cross brace, oil filter, the transmission to oil pan bolts and the oil level sensor.
  • Step 5 Follow the removal of those pieces by removing the bolts from the two front wiring harness, the engine wiring harness retainer, engine oil cooler pipe to oil bolts and the transmission oil cooler pipe retainer using a wrench. Located the closeout covers and bolts located on each side of the engine and remove them.
  • Step 6 Disconnect each of the oil pan bolts using a wrench that will allow the oil pan to drop. The oil pan gasket will also fall off and replacement should occur before reinstalling the oil pan.

    I have a leak from the oil pan ...of my 1992 mercury topaz and im needing to know what all i will need to do to repair it


    You didn't list your engine size so please pick the approriate task:

    2.0L Engine
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Raise the vehicle and support safely with jackstands.
    3. Drain the crankcase of oil.
    4. Remove the attaching bolts securing the oil pan to the engine.
    5. Clean the oil and gasket mating surface completely, and allow to dry.
    To install:
    1. Apply a 1/8 in. (3.18mm) bead of silicone sealer D6AZ-19562-B or equivalent between the oil pan and engine crankcase.
    2. Install the oil pan using the attaching bolts. Torque bolt to 5-7 ft. lbs. (7-10 Nm).
    3. Lower vehicle, and fill crankcase with correct amount of engine oil.
    4. Start engine and check for leaks.

    2.3L Engine
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. Raise the vehicle and support safely with jackstands.
    3. Drain the crankcase of oil, and drain the cooling system by removing the lower radiator hose.
    When draining coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze, and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
    1. Remove the roll restrictor if equipped with a manual transaxle.
    2. Disconnect the starter cable.
    3. Remove the starter from the vehicle
    4. Unfasten the bolts securing the rear oil pan to the transaxle case.
    5. If equipped with a manual transaxle, remove the secondary air injection tube at the check valve.
    6. Remove the heater supply tube located at the lower water pump inlet tube assembly.
    7. Loosen the bolts and remove the brackets at the block and water pump inlet tube and A/C compressor line at the pan.
    8. Using a prybar between the engine and body of car, flex engine enough the remove oil pan.
    9. Clean the oil and gasket mating surface completely, and allow to dry.
    10. Clean both mating surfaces of oil pan and cylinder block making certain all traces of RTV sealant are removed. Ensure that the block rails, front cover and rear cover retainer are also clean.
    11. Remove and clean oil pump pick-up tube and screen assembly. After cleaning, install tube and screen assembly.
    To install:
    1. Apply a bead of RTV E8AZ-19562-A sealer or equivalent, in the oil pan groove. Completely fill oil pan groove with sealer. Sealer bead should be 0.200 in. (5mm) wide and 0.080-0.150 in. (2.0-3.8mm) high (above oil pan surface) in all areas except the half-rounds. The half-rounds should have a bead 0.200 in. (5mm) wide and 0.150-0.200 in. (3.8-5.1mm) high, above the oil pan surface.
    Applying RTV in excess of the specified amount will not improve the sealing of the oil pan, and could cause the oil pickup screen to become clogged with sealer. Use ad equate ventilation when applying sealer.
    1. Install oil pan to cylinder block within 5 minutes to prevent skinning over. RTV needs to cure completely before coming in contact with any engine oil. Ideally, about 1 hour at ambient temperature between 65-75°F (18-24°C) is recommended as a drying time.
    2. Install oil pan bolts lightly until the 2 oil pan-to-transmission bolts can be installed.
    3. Install 2 oil pan-to-transaxle bolts. Tighten to 30-39 ft. lbs. (40-54 Nm) to align oil pan with transaxle. Loosen bolts 1/2 turn.
    4. Tighten all oil pan flange bolts to 15-22 ft. lbs. (20-30 Nm).
    5. Tighten 2 oil pan-to-transmission bolts to 30-39 ft. lbs. (40-54 Nm).
    6. Install brackets for A/C compressor line and water pump inlet tube.
    7. If equipped with a manual transaxle, fasten the air injection tube.
    8. Install the starter and cable.
    9. Lower vehicle.
    10. Install engine oil and coolant.
    11. Connect the negative battery cable.
    12. Start engine and check for coolant and oil leaks.

    The engine needs replaced and need to know if the transmission will need to be dropped to do so


    no, Because the transmission is underneath your motor. now if you were changing your transmission you would have to pull out the motor then hoist the transmission out.
