SOURCE: 2000 7.3 Liter diesel engine needing oil pan replacement

sadly I don't think there is. The oil pan is huge and sections of the frame are in the way of getting it in and out without damaging the pan severly. pulling that massive engine and replacing the pan, then putting the engine back in and reconnecting everything in 14 hours is a good estimate. sorry for the bad news

Mark position of drive shaft and yoke - to install in the same position (not to upset balance)
Remove and discard small "U" bolts on yoke Slide drive shaft up spline end to dislodge drive shaft from yoke.
You can either "beat" U join out of shaft, but better to bring to auto parts store that has a machine shop to install new joint
Use new "U" bolts to install
Make sure "U" joint is fully seated in yoke and installed in same position as removed

2003 TL. How do I remove the oil pan?


Not too hard if it is a southern car, if it's from the north, a bit more effort might be needed because the nuts on the exhaust rust. If you are working on the ground, get it up high on ramps or jack stands. Always put another support under the car. Leave the floor jack in place and use jack stands, slide something, like the front tires, under the car, too. NEVER work under a car without a backup support. Cars can, and do, fall off jack stands.
1st you have to remove the exhaust "A" pipe. 3 nuts, 14mm on each exhaust manifold need to come off. ALWAYS spray a penetrating lube, like WD40, on any exhaust nuts before loosening, and before installing them. You need a really good socket, extension and a breaker bar, make sure the socket is on the nuts correctly, break them loose without rounding them off. Then two 12mm nuts on the support bracket, and 3 14mm nuts at the outlet of the "A" pipe at the converter. If these last 3 are too rusty, you can unhook the exhaust hangers and move the assembly over. (Leave the back muffler hangers on.) Drain the oil. (I always try and do these jobs when an oil change is due) two 14mm bolts going from the oil pan to the transmission, and a 10mm bolt holding an access plate at the transmission end, remove access plate. Now a bunch of 10mm bolts and nut holding the oil pan in place. You might have to pry the pan loose, a big drift works good. There are a couple of spots to hook onto and pry.

How do I change oil pan gasget


Jack up truck for safety sake put jack stands under frame . remove all engine oil remove all bolts holding oil pan on if their is not enough room to drop pan you may have to remove bolts holding motor mounts and jack up engine. if front end linkage is still in the way remove linkage. pull oil pan out. check gasket that was between block and oil pan if any stuck to block of engine remove with gasket scraper or wire brush or wire wheel on drill.make sure mating surface is clean put new gasket on new oil pan I like to use a high temp sealer on gasket both sides. Put pan with gasket back in place of old oil pan and tighten all bolts. jack engine down ,replace moter mount bolts replace any linkage you took apart. and dont forget to replace engine oil. make sure oil plug is in pan before pouring oil in . before starting engine check that no oil is leaking than start engine and check for any leaks again if all is good your done. if this was helpful please leave good feed back. A good temp fix on a rusted oil pan is JB weld make sure no oil is on pan clean with towel and rubbing alchol .you may have to drain oil first. if it is rusted badly you may have to use a wire brush on a drill to clean the area to patch. if patched properly it may last for years.

How to replace oil pan


5.2 liter V8 engine?

Remove the four front skid-plate bolts holding the front skid plate, using a ratchet and socket. Remove the skid plate.

Pull the plastic splash shield away from the vehicle, loosening the retaining clips. Remove the splash shield.


  • Place an oil drain container under the oil pan. Loosen the drain fitting with a wrench until oil drains from the pan. When oil is done draining, tighten the drain fitting.

  • Disconnect the electrical connections running to the starter motor. Remove the starter motor mounting bolts with a ratchet and socket, then remove the starter motor.
  • Remove the oxygen sensor socket from the exhaust pipe, using a wrench.
  • Remove the exhaust manifold bolts where the exhaust meets the manifold on both sides, using a ratchet and socket
  • Place an jack under the transmission to support it. Remove the pressure on the transmission crossmember.

  • Remove the bolts that hold the transmission crossmember in place, using a ratchet and socket. Then remove the crossmember. Place a jack stand under the transmission to keep the transmission from falling off the jack if hit. Once removed, the exhaust will hang down, allowing enough room to remove the oil pan.
  • Disconnect the oil level sensor and the nut retaining the transmission cooling lines, using a wrench.
  • Remove the oil pan bolts with a ratchet and socket, then remove the oil pan and gasket.
  • Clean the mounting surfaces of the new oil pan and engine block. Make sure what ever you use to clean the surfaces dosn't gouge the metal.
  • Place a coat of RTV (gasket) sealer on the engine block where the pan will meet the rear main cap.
  • Place the new gasket on the pan and push the new oil pan into place. Finger tighten the oil pan mounting bolts to hold it in place. Tighten the bolts with a torque wrench to 18 ft-lbs. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE BOLTS! Doing so will cause the gasket to deform and create leaks!

  • Connect the oil level sensor and the nut retaining the transmission cooling lines, using a wrench.
  • Place the exhaust back into position and replace the transmission crossmember bolts and crossmember with a ratchet and socket.
  • Remove the jack supporting the transmission.
  • Connect the exhaust back to both sides of the manifold, tightening the bolts with a torque wrench to 20 ft-lbs.
  • Attach the oxygen sensor socket to the exhaust pipe with a wrench.

  • Replace the starter motor by installing the starter motor mounting bolts with a ratchet and socket. Connect the electrical connections to the starter motor that were disconnected during removal.
  • Push the retaining clips on the plastic splash shield into the appropriate retaining clip holes.
  • Replace the front skid plate by replacing the four front skid plate bolts with a ratchet and socket.
  • Fill the engine with 5 quarts of oil. Make sure to check the level on the dipstick to find the exact level when filling.

    Something is leaking on the exhaust in the engine compartment and causing a burning smell. what could it be?


    It could be the valve cover gasket, oil pan gasket or front main seal leaking oil on the exhaust. Best bet is to safely jack the vehicle and support with jack stands and get under and look to see if you can see where the oil is coming from. It is a fairly easy and quick job for all of the above.

    Im having a hard time getting the oil pan off of a 2003 Dodge Durango, 5.9 4wheel drive.


    The frame is in the way and you have to lift the engine to remove the pan.
    1. Turn on the Durango and run it for at least 10 minutes, a few times around the block is best. This will get the engine oil up to temperature allowing it to drain better for you.Park the vehicle on a flat, stable surface that gives you enough room to move around under. Jack up the Durango following the directions provided with your jack and jack stands.Open the hood of the Durango and located the engine oil cap, found on the right side of the engine, towards the middle. Remove the cap by twisting it off and set aside, allowing ventilation and pressure release.Climb under the vehicle and located the oil pan. The oil pan is on the underside of the engine, between the car's tires. It is a rectangular shaped pan with a plug located on the end towards the back of the car.Place an oil drip pan under the oil pan and pull the plug by twisting it and pulling it. This will release all oil from the vehicle, draining it into the pan below. Allow the oil to drain until there is nothing left coming out.Use a wrench to loosen the bolts of the oil pan. There are a total of 17 of them located around the edge of the oil pan, connecting it to the frame of the engine. Store safely.Remove the oil pump pickup tube and oil pan gasket, which are connected to the oil pan. You will find these as soon as you drop the oil pan.
      to Replace the Oil Pan Gasket in a Dodge Durango
      1. Jack up the front of the Dodge Durango, and install a jack stand. Block the rear wheels. Remove the oil plug and let the oil drain into a pan, being sure to remove as much of the old oil as possible.Loosen the bolts holding the oil pan with a socket wrench, and remove the bolts with your fingers. Remove the oil filter, starter motor, cooler lines, oil level sensor, heated oxygen sensor connector and exhaust y-pipe, and then take off the oil pan.Scrape off the old gasket with a thin putty knife, being very careful not to scrape the surface. Be sure all of the old gasket is removed, then wipe the surface with solvent. Spread a bit of oil on the surface to promote adhesion, and apply the new gasket.Replace the oil pan, exhaust y-pipe, heated oxygen sensor connector, oil level sensor, cooler lines and starter motor, and install a new oil filter.Raise the vehicle slightly with the jack and slide out the jack stand before lowering the vehicle and removing the jacks.Fill the engine with the appropriate amount of oil. Check the level with the dipstick to be sure you have the right amount.
        this will help.thanks.
