SOURCE: 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

Oil leak on driveway coming from front of engine


Dear Sir,
Here is the oil leaking Problem Identifying Technique

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket are common.

  • The intake manifold plenum gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption/burning and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.
  • External oil leaks from valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets (front or rear), and the rear crankshaft (rear main) seal area are common. The rear main seal is an unlikely source. Normally, the bearing cap mating surfaces (as well as the sealing surface between the oil pan and bearing cap) are the source for the leaks.
  • Engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from theintake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.
  • If the oil filter casing shows signs of distortion from excessive oil pressure, theoil pump should be replaced.
  • Often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
  • Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

    I was told I have to replace the crankshaft seal and oil pan gasket on my 2000 chevy malibu and will cost approx. $380.00. Also is the rear main seal the same thing as the crankshaft seal??? Thanks!


    Well sometimes.... the front crankshaft seal is usually called a crank seal, or the front timing cover seal but the rear crank seal is (usually) called the Rear Main crank seal. In order to replace the rear seal , the transmission will need to be removed. If its the front, then the harmonic balancer will be removed. $380 sounds cheap. As you will need a oil seal, oil pan gasket, oil, filter, labor and tax. Maybe even a lower engine mount.

    How do you replace a gasket and cover for timing chain and rear seal gasket for oil pan on a 1978 Chevy 350 motor


    the oil pan will need to be removed to repalce the rear seal, so replace the front seal and gasket then, replace the timing chain/gears if sloppy, then reinstall the oil pan.

    I changed the oil sensor on my 1997 mercury villager van, and it is still leaking oil. The oil lite never has come on and I checked oil last night and it was one quart low. Could the gasket on the oil...


    The oil is leaking from wherever you see oil on the engine. Sometimes there can be to much oil covering the engine and it needs to be degreased. A dye can also be added to the oil that will illuminate when a dye light is used to help track down a leak. If the oil pressure switch you removed wasn't wet with oil or leaking than it wasn't bad.

    It could be anything from the valve cover gaskets, cam seals, front crank seal, oil pan gasket, rear main seal or head gaskets.

    How to remove oil pan from 1994 olds acheiva


    raise car, remove any obstruction from out of the way of the oil pan. if you arent pulling the motor it will mean you need to drop the front k member. after that remove all bolts from pan, pry it off with a putty knife, remove old gasket with razor knife, reapply gasket, possibly adding RTV silicone if your car needs it. reverse all other steps and you are clear. unless you know for sure its just the oil pan leaking i would suggest changing front and rear main seals on the crank as well.

    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.
