Stock the car doesn't come with an oil pan gasket but you can order one from rockauto.com you don't have to remove the A/C compressor for any of the jobs you listed. If you want to change the timing belt you need to remove the plastic rock guard under the motor on the passenger side. remove the spark plugs and using the socket turn the engine from the crankshaft clockwise until you are at TDC on #1 cyclinder. (compression stroke) Next remove the upper and lower plastic timing belt covers. The idler pulley is the one with the spring. Loosen the nut and remove the spring then you can remove the timing belt. It really isn't that hard to do. Maybe one afternoon.

Do i have to pull the engine on a 1991 geo prizm to replace the oil pan gasket?


the prizm is Toyota. (joint with GM made car)
most cars yes. , pull motor. Due to cross members in way.
or axles.
on some Fwd cars, the whole drive assembly can be drooped.
just the reverse if the day 1 build in the factory. youtube that...

with any car,
just look, look under pan. see all that stuff in the way.?
does it unbolt ? y/n? easy to see, no?
it's FWD and as such , sux. to work on. (axles ,tranny sandwitch)
if confused, why not read the book, RTM the FSM.
or look here.
it's all here, including your topic and the steps are very long.
nobody can post those.

I see oil residue on the front bottom left of my engine.could it be my oil pump leaking or is it my gasket from a different part?


it is not your oil pump, as your oil pump is internal, it could be the oil pan gasket or the oil filter, try getting under the vehicle with a torch & having a good look to see where the leak is,when you know exactly where it is leaking you may be able to solve the problem, firstly determine if it is engine oil or transmission oil or power steering oil ETC.......hope this helps.....cheers.

to see if there is a possiblity of blown head gasket, check the oil and see if there is any coolant in the oil pan. If the oil looks like milky chocolate, you have a blown head gasket or cracked block/head

2003 Toy Tacoma transmission pan have a gasket


There is a gasket supplied when you buy the transmission filter for all transmissions that your vehicle would have came with. You don't want to be using that stuff on a transmission pan, as a replacement for a gasket. I would wonder if the filter was changed?

Replace rear gear oil


This is a easy job and will take about an hour once you have all the parts. First of all look in your owners manuel to see what grade lube you need and how many quarts. Go to your local auto parts store and purchase the lube and a gasket for the Tacoma. Put the vehicle in park and remove the bolts on the back pan. Place a pan under the rear end and remove the bottom of the pan with a screwdriver carefully. The fluid will come out slowly. Once it has been completely drained remove the cover completly. Scrap all the old gasket material and replace the new one. Put the cover on and torch per specifications. Fill it up and your done.
