    trying to remove oil pan

  • kealli2 Jun 16, 2009

    the oil pan will not come out as it is hitting the transmission

  • kealli2 Jun 16, 2009

    nothing. just can't seem to get the engine up high enough to get the right angle to slide the pan past the transmission and remove it

  • kealli2 Jun 16, 2009

    there is a center support under the oil pan

  • kealli2 Jun 16, 2009

    sorry. this is the main support and the engine is mounted to it. thanks any way.
    have a good day

  • kealli2 Jun 16, 2009

    does anyone else have a take on this matter?

    unfortunately for you, you have to take off the arm that goes across the oil pan

  • Dar
    Dar May 11, 2010

    From the engine, i guess i have to assume. What's it hitting on?

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 do i remove an oil pan off a 1998 ford 2 wheel drive with out pulling the engine


Remove the bolt that runs thru the engines motor mounts, not the ones that attach it to the engine block. Take a 2x4 and put it on a floor jack so the jack won't damage the front pulley. Raise the engine with the floor jack to get enough clearance to manuver the pan around the steering components once thw oil pan bolts have been removed. Watch the fan blades don't hit the radiator.

Ok I have a 1995 ford aspire im trying to figure out how to replace the oil pump


Disconnect the motor mounts and jack the engine to remove the oil pan. Remove the oil pan, replace the oil pump you'll find at the end of a pick up tube, replace the pump and put the pick up tube back on the new pump making sure it's in the same low position it was when removed, replace the oil pan gasket and put the oil pan back on, lower the engine and put the motor mount bolts back in. Put in the proper amount of oil and go.

How to remove oil pan on a 2001 lin coln town car


There are a lot of short bolts along the edge of the pan that must be removed. Once they are all out, if the pan hasn't dropped away from the engine by itself then you need to smack the sides of it with a soft rubber mallet to dislodge it from the gasket. You then take the bolts out of both front motor mounts and lift the engine up with a floor jack on the front pulley. Put a wooden block between the jack and pulley to prevent damage and also to get more lift distance. Jack it up until you there is enough clearance to get past the oil pump pick up tube

Can i remove the oil pan on my 07 ford f-150 with out removing the engine?


Check this procedure on F-Series...

5.4L Engine
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Remove the transmission.
  3. Drain the engine oil.
  4. Disconnect the engine oil temperature (EOT) sensor electrical connector.
  5. Remove the nut and the starter wiring harness support bracket.
  6. Remove the nut and position the transmission oil cooler lines and bracket aside.
  7. Remove the 16 bolts and lower the oil pan onto the crossmember.
  8. Remove the 3 bolts and position the oil pump screen and pickup tube into the oil pan.
    NOTE Be careful when removing the oil pan gasket. It is reusable.
  9. Remove the oil pan and the oil pump screen and pickup tube.
  10. Inspect the oil pan gasket for damage. If damaged, discard the oil pan gasket and the oil pan-to-oil pump gaskets. Discard the oil pump screen and pickup tube O-ring seal.
To install:
WARNING Do not use metal scrapers, wire brushes, power abrasive discs or other abrasive means to clean the sealing surfaces. These tools cause scratches and gouges, which make leak paths. Use a plastic scraping tool to remove all traces of old sealant.
  1. Inspect the oil pan. Clean the mating surface for the oil pan with silicone gasket remover and metal surface prep. Follow the directions on the packaging.
  2. Position the oil pump screen and pickup tube in the oil pan and position the oil pan into the vehicle.
    WARNING Make sure to install a new O-ring seal. A missing or damaged O-ring seal can cause foam in the lubrication system, low oil pressure and severe engine damage.
    NOTE Clean and inspect the mating surfaces and install a new O-ring seal. Lubricate the O-ring seal with clean engine oil prior to installation.
  3. Position the oil pump screen and pickup tube and install the bolts.
  4. Tighten the oil pump screen and pickup tube-to-oil pump bolts to 10 Nm (89 inch lbs.).
  5. Tighten the oil pump screen and pickup tube-to-spacer bolt to 25 Nm (18 ft. lbs.).
    NOTE If not secured within 4 minutes, the sealant must be removed and the sealing area cleaned. To clean the sealing area, use silicone gasket remover and metal surface prep. Follow the directions on the packaging. Failure to follow this procedure can cause future oil leakage.
  6. Apply silicone gasket and sealant at the crankshaft rear seal retainer plate-to-cylinder block sealing surface.
    NOTE If not secured within 4 minutes, the sealant must be removed and the sealing area cleaned. To clean the sealing area, use silicone gasket remover and metal surface prep. Follow the directions on the packaging. Failure to follow this procedure can cause future oil leakage.
  7. Apply silicone gasket and sealant at the engine front cover-to-cylinder block sealing surface.
  8. Install the oil pan gasket and the oil pan and loosely install the 16 bolts.
  9. Tighten the bolts in 3 stages, in the sequence shown.
    Stage 1: Tighten to 2 Nm (18 inch lbs.). Stage 2: Tighten to 20 Nm (15 ft. lbs.). Stage 3: Tighten an additional 60 degrees.
  10. Install the wire harness bracket and the bolt. Tighten to 10 Nm (89 inch lbs.).
  11. Position the starter wiring harness support bracket and install the nut. Tighten to 10 Nm (89 inch lbs.).
  12. Connect the engine oil temperature (EOT) sensor electrical connector.
  13. Install the transmission.
  14. Fill the crankcase with clean engine oil.

Replace Oil Pump Can it be doen without pulling


Yes it can. It can be replaced from the underside by removing the oil pan

May 03, 2010 | 1998 Ford Windstar

Oil pump needs to be replaced


Due to the front TTB suspension in the way on the outside, and the oil pickup tube hanging low inside the oil pan, the pan is nearly impossible to remove with the engine in the vehicle.

The easiest method is to remove the engine from the vehicle.

The more difficult method is to loosen the motor mounts and jack the engine up. Lower the oil pan and reach inside the pan and remove 3 bolts attaching the oil pickup tube to the oil pump (this can only be done by feel, because you can't see the bolts with the pan in the way. You will only have a few inches to squeeze your arm through). With the pickup tube dropped into the pan, you can then remove the pan and access the oil pump.
Reverse steps for putting things back together, using new seals.

I have done this repair on my 86 B2 once. Never again. I normally do all of my own repairs on my vehicles, but this definitely qualifies as irritating enough to pay a mechanic to deal with. Good luck.

  1. Drain the cooling system.
CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  1. Remove the bolts attaching the fan shroud to the radiator and position the shroud over the fan.
  2. Remove the upper intake manifold and throttle body (see ).

Trying to drop the oil pan out of my 1994 Ford F-150 (4.9L) to replace the gasket. Ive taken out the motor mounts and jacked the engine almost high enough to get the oil pan out and I am wondering if i...


done this on several i-6 f-150s. slide back or remove transmission, remove motor mount bolts from frame(not motor), jack motor up as far as possible without damaging egr valve or wiper motor when they hit, shim under motor mounts so that when you drop the jack the motor does not come back down any(the motor is well balanced on the mounts, it will not fall out of the truck like a v8 will), then remove the oil pan. you May have to remove the pickup tube(usually not), and you May have to rotate the crankshaft so that the lobes clear the oil pan. this is a common problem with these trucks due to the size of the oil pan(Huge), and the minimum pan to crossmember clearance
