Oil Pan Gasket

I have a 1999 Ford Expedition 5.4 V8 Triton motor. I ws told by the dealer that I will have to have my oil pan gasket and front seal replaced. I have oil flying up on the inside of my motor on the passenger side. My belt is getting wet with out and my alternator s shorting out because of the oil being forced by the fan. How do I change this oil pan gasket?

Before removing the oil pan, drain all the oil from the car. You should be able to remove the pan with basic tools, not sure what socket size though. Once you have the pan off compare the new gasket with the new one to make sure it is the right one. Scrape off the old gasket and replace with the new using a high temp gasket sealant to attach the gasket. Bolt back on to the engine refilling with new oil and checking for leaks. NOTE: your oil pump is protected by your oil pan so be careful not to hurt while sliding in and out of place

How do I change the oil pan gasket?


Whether it's an engine oil pan (called the 'sump'' in the UK) or a transmission oil pan the principle is the same on all vehicles.
1. Drain the oil

2. Remove the bolts holding the sump/pan in place:

change-oil-pan-gasket-mcgwfbeeztshkxy1nyom2hsg-4-3.jpg change-oil-pan-gasket-mcgwfbeeztshkxy1nyom2hsg-4-6.jpgNew gasket held in place with sealant
Use a blunt screwdriver -if needed - and prise the oil pan free. remove all traces of the old gasket from the mating surfaces.

Use a smear of sealant to hold the new gasket in the correct position on the pan - this will hold it in place when you refit the pan.

Push the pan into position and put in a front bolt finger-tight. Then put in a rear bolt finger-tight.

Putting in the bolts finger-tight allows you to gently 'move' the pan if needed to put the bolts in one at a time.

When all bolts are in, tighten them with a wrench/socket. Then check them all again for tightness.

It isn't actually a big job .. more 'messy' because of the oil.

Why did the garage tell me $500.00


Instructions

1

Put the car in park and set the parking brake. Raise the front of the car with a jack, and support it with a jack stand. Put a block in front of the rear wheel to be sure the car doesn't roll. Disconnect the negative battery cable before proceeding.
2

Remove the oil dipstick tube, low oil level sensor, oxygen sensor connectors, dual converter Y-pipe and engine rear plate.
3

Loosen the bolts holding the oil pan one at a time, and carefully remove the oil pan. You may have to use a mallet and a screwdriver to loosen the oil pan, but work slowly so you don't scrape the surface.
4

Carefully scrape off the old gasket. Clean the sealing surface of the oil pan with a paper towel or clean cloth dipped in solvent, being sure that the surface is perfectly clean.
5

Apply a small amount of clean oil to the sealing surface and put on the new gasket. Reattach the oil pan and torque the bolts according to specifications. Reconnect the engine components in the reverse order listed.
6

Lower the car with the jack, and remove the jack stand. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
7

Replace the oil with 4.5 quarts of oil, then check the level with a dipstick to be sure it's at the fill line. Add more oil if necessary. Your Ford Taurus will require between 4.5 and 5 quarts of oil.
8

Take the old oil to a garage or a hazardous waste facility for proper disposal.

My 2000 Ford Expedition has a major oil leak from somewhere around the Starter or Oil Filter housing, Looks like it's towards the front of the Motor, What could be leaking and how do I fix it?


Could be a number of things. Oil pan gasket, check around oil pan to see if its wet. Front crank seal could be leaking and blowing back if its bad enough. Check around and in behind your crankshaft pulley. I would also check your tranny cooler lines and power steering lines, if they are leaking bad enough the oil will get blown back when you drive. Also check to see how high up the engine the oil starts coming from that will give you some indication of where it starts.

Think I need oil pan gasket


It's probably the front crank seal or the cam seal. Kinda big job for a novice. The car only has one oil pan. The back one she refered to is for the transmission,if it's automatic. Never saw a oil pan gasket leak on a nissan '96 & up.

Newer oil pan gaskets for Ford, not like original..leaking again


try warming up the engine a little then re-tightening the bolts,if that doesnt work,mark where its leaking and pull the pan back off and apply sealant to that area a little heavier than the rest of the gasket surface,dont use too much on a new gasket,just a really thin coat...USE "ULTRA BLUE" sealant,NOT blue or black RTV silicone,silicone wears out and it can leak after a while..Allow the ultra blue sealant to dry for about 30 minutes before re-assembling it,and clean off all oil from the gasket before applying the sealant,its ok to apply it to both sides of the gasket,and add a glob to all 4 corners where the gasket meets with rubber seals around the crankshaft,but put those globs on right before you put the pan back in place,the sealant has to be wet to squish in enough..i hope this helps
