You need to get the motor up high to get the pan out, and if its a 4x4 the front axle is in the way too.
And dont let pep boys do this. Most of them are kids still in high school or they cant get a job in a real garage.

How much would it cost to change the oil pan gasket on a 1994 Chevy k1500 5.7Lt?


you can get the gasket for about $20. REmove the pan bolts and it should drop straight down. When you tighten back up make several rounds around the pan tightening bolts so they tighten evenly. DO NOT fully tighten each bolt before moving to the next bolt.


if you take itt in plan on paying about $150 to $200.

How much does it cost on average to fix a gasket on a 2002 Chevy Malibu ?


It depends on the gasket , a valve cover gasket would be less then an oil pan gasket ! Both valve cover gaskets $150- $ 190 , Intake manifold gasket $ 547 - $698 , Head gaskets $1,000 - $ 1,200 oil pan gasket $ 211 - $ 269 These are just estimates , not all repair shops charge the same . Here in Pennsylvanian local shops like pep boys charge $115.00 per hour , AAMCO does general repairs too , an they charge $ 95.00 per hour . I found the local Chevy dealer to be one of the cheapest around at $86.00 per hour ! It just depends on where you live ! you have to check around , Do let them bully you either , Ask what they charge to do you particular gasket an if they give you the run around tell them you'll try someplace else ! They always say well we will need to check it out first ! good luck hope this helps an may god bless you !!!!!!

Leaking gasket of tining belt


do you have a 3.1L V6? The timing cover gasket seals the timing components, it is located behind the belt drive system (alt, a/c, p/s etc.) all of these components must be removed to change this gasket, also the oil pan lower seal gets changed at the same time. The oil pan gasket includes the rear pan seal and the side seals and on for the rear of the pan, the engine must be lifted out of it mounts to change this gasket. It takes time to do these repairs and each shop has an hourly rate per hour on labor. The cost of the parts will be relatively the same at any shop, labor will differ. I hope this helps to answer your questions.
