Removing and replacing an oil pan gasket is a relatively easy task, even for a novice.

Please follow the instructions and you'll have no problem/

  1. Raise the front of the vehicle at least two feet off the ground and support with jack stands.
  2. Drain the oil from the oil pan.
  3. Remove the oil level sensor connector.
  4. Remove the oil pan retaining bolts.
  5. Remove the oil pan.
  6. Remove the oil pan gasket and discard. The gasket CANNOT be reversed.
  7. Clean the oil pan and the cylinder blaock mating surfaces.
  8. Install the new gasket to the oil pan flange.
  9. Replace the bolts and torque to 124 lb. in.
  10. Connect the oil level sensor.
  11. Add the correct amount of oil.
  12. Start the vehicle and check for leaks.

That's the entire process.

The oil is mixing with the water in my pontiac sunbird 1994, what can I do?

If you have overhead cam(s), it's probably a cracked head or blown head gasket. the head will have to come off and be tested for cracks.
If your cam is not overhead, a cracked engine block is likely. :o(

Know how to change the oil pump in my 1997 chevrolet SILVERADO?

The oil pump is in the the oil pan so you will need a new oil pan gasket and some form a gasket as well to put the pan back on, because you will have to take it off, you will see the oil pump a soon as you take the pan off, it will have a tube connecting to the pick up screen and to the block, remove bolts from the block and remove oil pump. be prepared the primming rod will probably come out too. itll need to go back of course, make sure seated in correctly because the primming rod runs off the cam. make sure the surface area for the oil pump gasket is clean before reinstalling new oil pump same goes for oil pan. after everything back together refill oil. It is best to test the oil pump before starting for your engine. the best way to do this is to remove the distrubuter if it has one if it has electronic ignition it will have a cap where the distributer went remove that and you will see the top end of the primming rod, fit appropriate socket on the primming rod and use a battery gun to spin, look inside oil fill cap and make sure you see oil flow or oil pressure on your gage if equiped, CAREFULL!!!!!! make sure the socket on battery gun has no way of falling off, or you will have to remove oil pan again to retrieve it.
Another way to prime pump is to disable igniton main power like remove the coil wire, or main power wire for electronic igniton so you can turn the motor over with out it starting, once again turn it over until you know you have oil pressure with the gage or through oil fill cap. put ignition back together start the car and once again confirm oil pressure. If every thing looks good your done Good luck

1994 pontiac sunbird starter removal. I have to take the car apart to put a STARTER in????!!!

You shouldn't have to. Jack the front end up. the starter should be at the bottom of the engine towards the front of the car. Follow the battery cable from the battery to the starter. Generally there are 2 or 3 bolts holding the starter in place. Disconnect the battery before working on the car, then undo those bolts. Use one hand to hold the starter. When all bolts are off, pull the starter off.

Installation is the reverse of removal.

94 sunbird will not start

Remove the smaller gauge wire from the solenoid, and put your test light on it while the ignition switch is being pushed into the "start" position. If the light turns on, the solenoid has gone bad.

you probably need to replace the oil pan gasket, unless the oil pan itself is cracked then you will need to replace the oil pan
