If you want to repair the oil pan I would also check lower engine mount for leaking oil and cracks in anti sway bar near fitting's. This due to engine mount is oil filled. OEM sway bar is made of tubular steel and they crack easy. Replacement sway bar is solid steel. Here's the kicker. When they pull the lower frame to service oil pan. The engine mount and sway bar are attached to that frame. A honest mechanic should only charge for parts ($35 for mount and $100 for sway bar) and maybe a extra hour. My mechanic did all in 5 hours. FYI gasket is only $35 bucks. Good luck

Not too much,they are prone to strip. Done. Or, about 40 dollars at oil change place.

How do you change the oil on a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix


you need to remove the drain plug from the oil pan, make sure the pan plug gasket is not dropped. Then you remove the filter & replace with a new one. After the oil has been left to drain. put the pan plug snuggly back into the oil pan. Refill 4.5 liters of 5w 30w engine oil. Start the engine, check for any leaks from both the new filter & pan plug. Turn off igntion & check the oil level on the dipstick. to make sure it is at the topp off the cross stitched area, if not add more a half liter at a time until it is at the full mark. There is nothing to grease with this car. U should also check transmission fluid, whick needs to be checked while the engine is running in park, there is a hot & cold safe level so check it carefully.

Where is the Oil Drain?


crawl under the car and there will be a square or rectangle bowl (oil pan) it will have a plug in it, remove the plug and the oil will flow out. Dont forget to change your filter.
