SOURCE: Trying to drop the oil

done this on several i-6 f-150s. slide back or remove transmission, remove motor mount bolts from frame(not motor), jack motor up as far as possible without damaging egr valve or wiper motor when they hit, shim under motor mounts so that when you drop the jack the motor does not come back down any(the motor is well balanced on the mounts, it will not fall out of the truck like a v8 will), then remove the oil pan. you May have to remove the pickup tube(usually not), and you May have to rotate the crankshaft so that the lobes clear the oil pan. this is a common problem with these trucks due to the size of the oil pan(Huge), and the minimum pan to crossmember clearance

The engine has to be supported and the cradle under the engine has to be removed. After everything is reinstalled the front end has to be realigned.

SOURCE: changing oil pan gasket on 02 impala ls 3.8

The engine does have to be raised. The bolts are not easy to get to until the engine is lifted and the engine mount is removed. I'm doing this job right now and the book time is around 5 hours.

Oil pan gasket, is it metal or cork? There is a


Fig. Fig. 7: Always install a new oil pan gasket on a clean surface-V8 engine shown

  1. Remove the exhaust cross-over pipe.
  2. Remove the left engine-to-transmission strut.
  3. Remove the bolts and lower the oil pan.
  4. Thoroughly clean the gasket mating surfaces.
  5. When installing the pan, always use new gaskets coated with sealer. Apply a drop of RTV silicone sealer where the cork and rubber gaskets meet. On the 5.9L engine, make sure the gasket notches are positioned as shown. Tighten the oil pan bolts to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm). Tighten the cross-over pipe to 24 ft. lbs. (32 Nm). this is it no metal you can find this at auto zone libary

I am trying to take the oil pan off but unable to remove the oil pan, I have a small oil leak

Yeah - it's really tight in that area. I had to get a heavy duty pipe and have a friend pry down on the exhaust piping to get it to slide out, definitely not a 1 person job. Please be careful not to break any of the electrical units that get exposed once you drop the pan. TIP: When you put the gasket on (make sure you get the right one, there are 2 for your truck - count the bolt holes) rub a little grease on the gasket to get it to "stick" to the pan, it'll wanna slip on and off as you put the pan back on.

Do i have to drop the oil pan to replace the timing cover gasket on a 3.8 v6 buich regal grandsport

Trying to figure out how to remove the oil pan with out having to take off the whole exhaust system? Is there an easier way my car is pouring out oil I believe it is bad gasket!

First try tightening up the bolts over time they loosen up and will leak when there is pressure build up in the engine due to Ring wear. If they are loose then tighten them and if that does not help just unbolt the flange at the manifold and separate the pipe from the manifold and drop the pipe down. It is not that easy you could remove the motor mounts and rent a engine puller and raise the engine up 10 inches to get the pan off to get the gasket off. Otherwise if you can get the pan to drop down with the oil drained you can blow off the gasket area with carburetor cleaner and try using some black silicone and place a bead all around the pan be careful where the from and rear rubber seals are if you knock them loose and the fall into the pan it will have to come apart. Also before you do this check that your rocker arm cover is not leaking the cork gasket could be bad or the bolts loose there, also check out the PCV valve to see if it's plugged and or the hose is cracked and leaking hope this helps.

Do i need to drop the oil pan to ghange the timing cover gasket on a 95 ford mustang v6?

You can pull the motor mounts bolts and jack the motor up alittle, that will give you enough clearance to drop your oil pan. If you try and replace the timing chain cover without dropping the oil pan, you will more than likely wind up with an oil leak.

You should be able to replace the timing cover without removing the oil pan. The gasket set should contain gaskets allowing you to cut the oil pan gasket and put in a new partial gasket in this area. In the corners make sure you use some RTV sealant. If you are careful, it can be done. Like Bob A says you can end up with a oil leak without dropping the pan (unless you clean up the area and properly apply the RTV and gasket). If you have time to drop the oil pan, then I would do that.

I need to replace the oil pan gasket and it looks like the exhaust pipe is in the way-what should I do?

The tail pipe is connected to the muffler. You need to remove the entire muffler. However, the hot exhaust fumes tend to corrode connections so taking off the muffler might require some work.
