What is involved with replacing the oil pan on 1998 GMC Sierra?

  • Step 1 Raise the truck using the proper equipment. Use a ramp or a jack and jack stands to support the vehicle securely by following all directions for use provided by this equipment's manufacturer.
  • Step 2 Drain all oil from the Silverado by placing an oil drip pan under the vehicle's engine block, directly under the oil drain plug. The drain plug is located on the oil pan, between the vehicle's tires underneath the vehicle. Use a wrench to loosen and remove the plug allowing the oil to drain into the pain below.
  • Step 3 Notice the various items attached to the oil pan or in the way of the oil pan dropping. For the oil pan to drop, remove the negative battery cable, front differential (only for four-wheel drive vehicles) and the under body shield by using a wrench or socket set.
  • Step 4 Remove the oil pan shield by loosening the four bolts holding it in place along the edges of the shield. Then, remove the cross brace, oil filter, the transmission to oil pan bolts and the oil level sensor.
  • Step 5 Follow the removal of those pieces by removing the bolts from the two front wiring harness, the engine wiring harness retainer, engine oil cooler pipe to oil bolts and the transmission oil cooler pipe retainer using a wrench. Located the closeout covers and bolts located on each side of the engine and remove them.
  • Step 6 Disconnect each of the oil pan bolts using a wrench that will allow the oil pan to drop. The oil pan gasket will also fall off and replacement should occur before reinstalling the oil pan.

    My 2001 Excursion Diesel is leaking oil from the oil pan gasket. Can I just drop the pan to replace the gasket (with a slight forward maneuvering) or do I have to drop the cross bar directly beneath the...

    If it is in fact the oil pan gasket that is leaking, then you would first need to drain out the oil through the oil drain plug and recycle the oil. Then you can remove the oil pan and replace the old gasket with a new one, refill with the proper amount of oil. Then you can run the car and see if it still leaks.

    Do i need to drop the oil pan to ghange the timing cover gasket on a 95 ford mustang v6?

    You can pull the motor mounts bolts and jack the motor up alittle, that will give you enough clearance to drop your oil pan. If you try and replace the timing chain cover without dropping the oil pan, you will more than likely wind up with an oil leak.

    You should be able to replace the timing cover without removing the oil pan. The gasket set should contain gaskets allowing you to cut the oil pan gasket and put in a new partial gasket in this area. In the corners make sure you use some RTV sealant. If you are careful, it can be done. Like Bob A says you can end up with a oil leak without dropping the pan (unless you clean up the area and properly apply the RTV and gasket). If you have time to drop the oil pan, then I would do that.

    Removing the oil pan from a 1994 vw jetta

    you have to remove the oil pan without the gasket because the gasket is attached to your oil pan baffle and that can't be removed until you unbolt your oil pump. i pried the **** out of mine until i realized the gasket couldn't come with it. no haynes manual will explain it as simple as it could be, i hate those books

    How to remove oil pan?

    Junkyard for the pan. Either that or go an import specific shop, they should be able to at least you find one.
    I highly doubt that you have to drop the whole engine. You shouldn't have to completely remove the transaxle to pull the oil pan but you probably do have to pull a few bolts.  By the way, if your oil pan is leaking, you can most likely just replace the oil pan gasket unless it is really warped.

    I have taken all bolts from the oil pan but it is hung up and i cant get the pan off

    Hi Michaelma692, keep in mind that the oil pick up sump is situated at the very bottom of the oil pan, which probably means u have to raise the engine quite a bit to drop the pan low enough to clear the oil pick up sump (if the oil pan is 6inches deep, for example, u will need to drop the pan 6 inches to clear). Let me know if this isn't the problem. Curt
