First be absolutely sure that all the bolts are removed. Then tap with a rubber mallet or a block of wood and hammer, be careful not to dent your pan. If this doesn't work, try to to carefully drive a small chisel between pan and engine block and work your way around to different places (again be careful not to force the issue and bend your pan). Sometimes the gasket sealant that is used is very strong and requires some persuasion to break loose.

Where is the oil pump on a 1996 dodge 1500 pick up


The oil pump is located inside the oil pan, it is bolted to the center main bearing cap of the crankshaft. To replace it you must raise the engine off the mounts and then remove the oil pan.

I'm trying to remove my oil pan on a 2000 Silverado 1500 with a 4.3L V6. I've removed all of the bolts, the starter, the transmission cooling lines, the oil level sensor bracket, the front wire bracket,...


I am not sure, But there could be six more bolts to remove. They will be on the side of the pan, about half way up. three on each side. Sorry for guessing, I work on to many makes and models. Also the gaskets do hold the pan on tight sometimes. If there are no extra bolts then carefully pry it off.

I need to remove the oil pan of my 2003 chevy express 1500 i have removed all of the bolts but it is not coming out


Make sure you have all bolts out. Then gently pry around the edges with as wide a bladed flat screwdriver as you can find. Is this a steel pan, or a cast aluminum pan?

In any case do not apply very much force in one area, or you risk warping/breaking something.

How do you change the transmisson filter on a 1996 chevy cavalier


look underneath the car. you will see the oil pan and another pan on the drivers side. take all the bolts out of that pan. NOT THE OIL PAN. and drain the fluid. remove all the old gasket material. change the filter. it will be obvious. and reinstall. be careful not to over tighten the bolts on the pan you will split the gasket and it will leak like a siv.

How do i remove the transmission pan on my 1999 chevy silverado?


First you have to get break all your knuckles trying to get the shift linkage out, to do that there is two T40 Torx screws on the top side of the oil pan (driver side) second you have to manage to get the drain plug, easier said then done. The pieces of **** at chevy torque it down to like a 100 ft poulds. Better go get a new plug before you even start, its about 8 bucks. Then remove the 20 or so bolts holding the pan up... Your life is made easier if you remove the drive shaft (4x4) which unless you are magic you must remove the exaust pipe.... All and all its not a fun job... it pretty much sucks. Once all is out you can remove the fluid filter, make sure you remove the O'ring as well.... Then put it all together.... its way easier said then done... When ur finished add on to your to do list to "Punch a Chevy engineer in the face."
