No! Find the pan and remove all bolts holding it on. clean off old seal and silicone. After this keep the rubber parts to gasket and replace old gasket with a strip of RTV high temp silicone. (RED) any Q's just write.

Oil Pan Gasket Replacement/ Oil Pan removal


yes the starter does have to be removed but also the engine mounts must be also as the engine must be raised about 10 " to get the pan out. if you do try this make sure you have very very sturdy jack stands for the engine to just a jack as the jack will lift it but wont maintain it long enough to safely remove the pan and reinstall it......good luck and be very carefull

It appears that i have oil dripping from my oil pan area. is there a gasket on the oil pan i need to replace?


oil leaking anywhere on the engine runs down and gets caught on the oil pan lip, builds up runs over and then looks to be an oil pan leak. so what you do is take the thing to a shop with a lift, like an oil change or muffler shop, and ask them to put it up on the lift so the rest of the engine can be easily examined for leaks. if there is no other place above the oil pan with a thin layer of oil on it, then most likely the pan gasket is leaking. before you buy the gasket take a good look at any suspension hardware which could obstruct easy removal of the oil pan. it may require lifting the engine up out of its mounts to get the gasket replaced, so simply snugging up the bolts holding the pan on and living with a small leak may be the way to go.

I have a 1996 chrysler cirrus 2.4 liter dohc 4 cylinder engine that needs the oil pan replaced. i have removed all things but the lower engine support because even after all bolts were removed the mount...


You need to hold the engine on a trolley jack by lifting it on the oil pan itself to then undo the engine mount. Once the mount is removed lower the jack, remove the remaining pan bolts and then remove the pan proper. Refitting is a matter of fitting the pan with some of the bolts, loosely, to then lift the engine a little with the jack to refit the mount, followed by fitting the remaining pan bolts and tightening. Its a matter of just doing things in a certain order but it is easy enough when you do that.

How do i replace a oil pan on this car


First, drain the oil.

You will need to get an engine hoist and lift the engine about a half foot up. This will require unhooking at least one motor mount that is closest to the oil pan.

Once the engine is lifted, you can unbolt the oil pan and remove/replace it.

Do be mindful of what sort of sockets you need as some Passats require special hex bolts tools or other odd tools.

Oil pan removal


In most cases you have to use an engine hoist to lift the engine 3 or 4 inches to remove the oil pan. You have to remove the bolts on the engine mounts to lift the engine. you have to check for clearence at the rear of the engine and check engine wiring to be sure you don't damage wiring.
