Removing oil pan in 2002 Ford Taurus. 3 litre 24 valve DOHC

WE have removed all the bolts that appear to be holding it up, including removing the catalytic converter. The pan however is still as tight as it was before we removed all the bolts. Wondering what we may have missed?

When the factory fits sump pans they use an adhesive sealer instead of a gasket so you may have to use something like a knife or sharp chisel to break the seal to get it to move.

SOURCE: replacing the catalytic converter on 2002 GMC Yukon

From LustyKid:

What may appear to be correct, can actually be INCORRECT. If you removed without touching the other two components, you definitely have the WRONG ONE.

Personally, I have never heard of having to remove torsion bars or oil pans to replace catalic conv.
If still in doubt. Let MIDAS do the job. Save yourself aggrevation. Unless you are really handy which you appear to be since you were able to remove it. Installing would be the reverse, provided you have the correct part. Suggest you take your vin number next time to the place where you bought it, they should be able to give you the correct one. If not, replace with OEM. Aftermarkets sometimes cause vehicle to fail emissions test. Goooooooooood Luck!

If all the bolts are off, then the gasket is holding the oil pan in place and your going to have to tap it with a mallet, Not a hammer but a mallet so you don not damage the oil pan. Good luck and hope this helps.

Where Is The Oil Pump Located>? And How Do I Replace The Oil Pump


Here you go. BIG Job!

http://www.ehow.com/how_4506339_replace-oil-pump-ford-taurus.html

The oil pump is an essential piece of equipment that keeps your Ford Taurus running. It lubricates the engine by keeping the oil circulating. Without this lubrication, the engine wouldn't run. An oil pump is usually located in the oil pan. If you want to change the oil pump and replace it with a new one, roll up your sleeves and get ready for some dirty work.

How to Check if an Oil Pump Is Bad

Things You'll Need




  • Wrench



  • New oil pump



  • New A/C bolts

Remove Old Oil Pump


  1. Drive your Ford Taurus up onto ramps or lifts so you have room to work as you pull out the oil pump. You could also use a jack, but make sure you brace the front wheels so they don't roll. In addition, set the emergency break firmly into position so the car doesn't roll.


  2. Take the engine out and put it on an engine stand then remove the upper intake manifold. Take off the valve covers then the accessory drive belt.


  3. Remove the power steering pump and the alternator. The water pump is the next component to remove, followed by the A/C compressor and bracket.


  4. Rotate the pulley shaft clockwise to remove the crankshaft pulley. It has left-handed threads.

  5. Pull out the oil pan and the oil pump screen and tube. Take off the front cover and the timing chains and remove the crankshaft timing gears. Finally, remove the oil pump, taking note of the bolts you removed and in which order you remove them.

Insert New Oil Pump


  1. Install the new oil pump and put the bolts back on in the same manner you removed them. Tighten these bolts to 71 to 106 in-lb.


  2. Reinsert the crankshaft timing gears, timing chains and front cover. Put the oil pump screen and tube back on, torquing the bolts to 71 to 106 in-lb, and torque the nut to 15 to 22 ft-lb.

  3. Put the oil pan back in, then the crankshaft pulley. Install the A/C compressor and bracket using new bolts for the A/C. Add the water pump, alternator, power steering pump, the accessory drive belt, valve covers and upper intake manifold.


  4. Replace the engine back into your Ford Taurus and fill the crankcase. Start your engine and look for leaks in the area you were working.

How to remove an oil pan on 99 ford taurus


This is a really time consuming and fairly difficult job to do due to the fact you have to remove so many things just to get to the oil pan. I have done this before and it took me a couple hard days of work to get it finished. I would really recommend taking it to a shop having it done by professionals. It really should be done up on a lift and requires you to remove the exhaust system, a couple of O2 sensors , the y pipe and catalytic converter assembly, the torque converter cover plate, and the starter just to get to the oil pan. Removing and reinstalling the oil pan itself was fairly easy but I had a really hard time removing the bolts from the exhaust system. The exhaust flange connecting the y pipe to the flex pipe had to be cut off and a new flange had to be welded on to each side due to the bolts being so rusted and corroded they hardly even looked like bolt anymore. If you are still wanting to do it yourself just let me know and I will give you the step by step directions to get the oil pan off. Also you would have to let me know which engine you have in your taurus the 24v DOHC or the 12v OHC. I hope this helps you out.

2003 Taurus 24V DOHC, have engine oil covering oil pan. I thought is was the oil pan gasket, mechanic did not seem to think so. Put dye in and trying to find the leak source. Is there a common leak problem...


Oil leak can be attributed to several factors.
1. Gasket failure.
2. Uncontrolled Crank case pressure Failure.

RECOMENDATION:
Tighten both the valve cover and oil pan bolts.
Replace the Positive Crankcase Ventilation Valve and vacuum line.,

INFO: PCV
This is a valve causes a negative vacuum on the engine while its running, As to say if it had a leak in a valve cover it should not be leaking while its running, only when the engine it turned off.

Hope this tip guides you in the correct direction to solve this problem.

The two have nothing to do with each other. You just get a starter for a 99 Taurus with a 3 litre engine.
