How to remove oil pan gasket from 2002 GMC Yukon Denali?

I'm having trouble removing the oil pan in order to replace the gasket. It doesn't drop out like the manual says. I've removed all parts verbatim, but the front differential is blocking the clearance. Not sure what I'm doing wrong.... Please help. Thanks.

I just changed my oil pan gasket on my 2001 GMC Yukon Denali. Once all bolts are off the oil pan, the pan and off the block it has no clearance because the differential is in the way. I removed half the diffential since the housing is split in the center. You will see bolts on the differential housing, remove those. But before the diff can come out to make room for the pan to drop you have to remove the axel attached to the diff on the passenger side. Once the axel is off the diff you have room to remove half the diff. Make sure to drain the gear oil first. It take a bit off pulling and wiggling but it will come off. Once that's clear the oil pan is completely free to come out. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: replacing the catalytic converter on 2002 GMC Yukon

From LustyKid:

What may appear to be correct, can actually be INCORRECT. If you removed without touching the other two components, you definitely have the WRONG ONE.

Personally, I have never heard of having to remove torsion bars or oil pans to replace catalic conv.
If still in doubt. Let MIDAS do the job. Save yourself aggrevation. Unless you are really handy which you appear to be since you were able to remove it. Installing would be the reverse, provided you have the correct part. Suggest you take your vin number next time to the place where you bought it, they should be able to give you the correct one. If not, replace with OEM. Aftermarkets sometimes cause vehicle to fail emissions test. Goooooooooood Luck!

SOURCE: Need to change oil pan gasket in a 1998 GMC Jimmy 2 wheel dr 4.3

On many vehicles the exhaust runs under the oil pan, on others there may have a cross member in the way, or brackets that will hinder oil pan removal. These parts need to be removed. The exhaust nuts/bolts will most likely be rusted. It is best to spray them with penetrating oil. You can use WD-40, PB Blaster, Deep Creep, or something similar. After you have sprayed all of the nuts/bolts, let the penetrating oil soak in for about 10 minutes. Now remove the exhaust pipe that runs under the oil pan. The catalytic converter may, or may not be in the piece that you have to remove. If you have to remove a cross member, simply unbolt it and set it to the side, it is best to mark which side is the front, as some will only go on one way. Other than that, you should not have to pull the engine at all.



please rate this response and god bless.

SOURCE: How do I replace the oil pan gasket on a 2001 GMC

Changing the oil pan gasket on a GMC Yukon XL is realtively simple, but does require removal of the exhaust pipe. You will need a new oil pan gasket and a new exhaust pipe flange gasket.
Put the car on ramps or jacks to access the undercarriage.
Remove the exhaust pipe by removing the 3 nuts holding the exhaust pipe flange to the exhaust manifold. These nuts often rust and prior application of penetrating oil may be required to remove them without damage. Once the pipe is unbolted, work the exhaust system loose from the hanging brackets. In most cases the entire system does not have to be removed since there is enough room to remove the pan with only the front hangers removed.
Drain the oil from the engine
Remove the 10 mm bolts holding the pan to the block.
Remove the old gasket material and scrape any remaining gasket from the block and pan.
Install the new gasket. Forma-Gasket or a similar product may be used in small quantities to "glue" the new gasket in place and prevent shifting while the pan is reattached to the block.
Reinsall the 10 mm bolts in a cross pattern to ensure the gasket is compressed evenly. Do not overtighten the bolts.
Replace the pipe to flange gasket between the exhaust pipe and the exhaust manifold with a new part.
Reattach the exhuast pipe to the hangers.
Install the 3 bolts connecting the pipe flange to the exhaust manifold.
Fill the engine with oil.

How to change an oil pan gasket?


You do not have much information to reply to.

First, buy the proper gasket, oil filter and enough oil for your vehicle so that you can complete the job. You will also need a drain pan large enough to hold all of the oil you drain out of the engine (5 quarts is usually what you need). You will also need sockets, wrenches a rubber mallet to remove the pan as well as rags to wipe up any spills.

You will need enough access under the vehicle to crawl under it and place the drain pan under the drain plug. (you might need to either use ramps or jack the car up to gain access. Be careful.)

Use a wrench to remove the drain plug turning counter clockwise to remove. The oil will then drain out. (make sure you have a rag to wipe up any spilled oil). Use an oil filter wrench to remove the oil filter from the engine.

Look up at the pan and you will see lots of small bolts around the upper part of the pan. These are what holds the pan to the engine. They must be removed. If the pan is stuck to the engine after removing all of the bolts, us the rubber mallet to GENTLY tap around the top part of the pan to break it free from the engine (be very careful as the metal of the oil pan is very thin and easily bent).

Lower the pan from the vehicle and clean, removing all traces of the old gasket from the pan as well as the engine. (use a putty knife and be careful not to put any gouges in the pan or engine surface.

Place the new gasket on the top of the pan, place it up against the engine and hand tighten all of the bolts. Then using a socket, gently tighten the bolts (clockwise) using a cross pattern to keep the gasket from warping. (do NOT over tight the bolts as they will break off fairly easily) Do not forget to tighten the oil drain plug as well.

Replace the new oil filter on the engine and add the proper amount of oil.

Start and run the engine and check for any leaks.
Turn off and let sit for a minute and re-check the oil level.

How do I check the circuit breaker for power windows on 2002 GMC Denali?


A circuit breaker is either open or closed

It is up to you, how you want to test it

You could voltage drop it or remove & buzz it,
with your meter.

If it is a plug in one in your fuse panel, you can't
very well get at it to test live.
