How do u take off the oil pan on a 1999 awd bravada 4.3
Hello skullz, this is a fairly big task but it can be done in your driveway. Take your time, keep track of all your parts you remove. Use masking tape and a sharpie to label stuff if you feel like it will make easier to reinstall....These steps are for a 99 blazer 4x4 with an aluminum pan. You wont need to do some of the shift linkage removal due to the AWD and electronics the Olds has.
Disconnect battery and remove battery tray. Disconnect shift cable at actuator.
Raise and support vehicle.
Remove underbody shield from
steering linkage and engine oil pan. Drain crankcase. Remove starter motor.
Remove oil cooler pipes and both front wheels. Disconnect
electrical connector and remove wiring harness bracket at
shift cable housing.
Remove 3 shift cable housing bolts and disconnect shift
cable from differential carrier. Remove both front drive
axles. Remove differential housing.
Remove 10 oil pan bolts, 2 nuts at crankshaft rear oil seal and remove 2 transmission to oil pan
bolts....Remove oil pan from vehicle....When you reinstall & tighten the oil pan bolts, start in the middle of the pan and go back to the bellhousing, directly across from each bolt---left, right, left right...then, from the middle towards the front of engine, right, left, right left...Torque to 18 ft/lbs
Good luck... if you tackle this job its a fun one....
