Question about 2003 GMC Envoy

Oil Pan leakage

So, I have an oil leak in my car, it's been there for awhile. It started off small, now very constant in my driveway. Dealership said there\'s a crack in oil pan and will need to replace to the tune of about $600. Why is it so much? I almost lost my lunch. Just had my oil changed and the oil light STILL was on. Need a little advice about how to handle this.Thanks.

SOURCE: Oil Pan Gasket Replacement - How to - GMC Yukon 2000

No big job Really. Just locate your Drain Plug for the Oil. Thepan is right there, Remove the Bolts around the Pan and Remove. You will lose all of your oil so, Have something there to catch it all. Clean it all around the Edges of the Block where the Pan mounts with Degreaser and Make sure that you Scrape the Old Gasket off of Both the Block and the Pan. Run a Thin Bead of Blue ATV Silicone around the Pan Edge, Lay the Gasket on top of this Silicone. Put another Thin line on top of the Gasket and Reinstall. This Silicone is High Temp Silicone and will Seal Very Well. Make sure to put oil Back in the Motor! Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!

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: engine oil leak on bottom side of motor when

you'll need to clean every thing off to find where it originally started,the wind going under the truck blows it all back,did you use silicone on the corners in the front where the gasket material gaps.if it is not leaking at an idle,it must only leak at high RPMs when the oil is flying around in the pan,you might have good luck on a hoist and take it thru the gears and get it up to forty mph,

I have a 1994 DeVille, with less than 100K miles. Should I be concerned about 2 small oil leaks (they appear to happen directly under the engine when sitting in the drive way). We just had transmissio


Yes, Those small leaks will become big leaks. Is it trans fluid red color? Then I would go back to the shop where the trans service was done to have them re-seal the pan gasket.

Midas is a rip off artist and have been investigated and fined many times in my state for fraud mostly to do with brakes. The dealer can do the job cheaper than that by $100's and use better parts. A small transmission fluid leak is not a real problem unless you hate driveway oil stains like I do.

Hi, I have a small oil leak coming from front right half of car. 2003 300m standard. Any thought on what it may be.


Could be: Oil Pan Gasket. OR the OIL LINE coming out of the oil pan and to the oil cooler in the radiator on the passenger side.. If it is engine oil, and not in a large quantity, like a drip on the driveway, look to the oil pan or the fitting. It is not too bad to replace- dirty, but not bad as it is fairly clear of obstructions. let us know and we'll walk you through it.

It may be coming from the top of the engine and dripping down. I'm assuming you inspected under the vehicle and ruled out a leak around the oil pan gasket and front/rear seals. Check the valve cover gaskets for possible signs of leakage. It is really hard to pin point where the oil is coming from via chat without actually looking at the engine itself.

2001 Toyota Highlander: Extremely high oil usage on highway, about 1 qt per 250 miles. No such problem whatsoever in the city. No oil leak on driveway. Very reproducible, so quite a mystery.


the best way to find a oil leak is to get a better look go under the car and look at the oil pan for any signs of leakage open your hood and look around the valve covers and intake for leakage these are the normal places oil will leak from first. second i would watch the exhaust for white or blueish white smoke and third i would pull the plugs to see if there is oil being burned.
