You have a bad head gasket, or cracked head or block. You have water and oil flowing through your engine, something has failed that is allowing them to mix together.

SOURCE: 2.2l toyota camra engine has pressure leaking from engine when oil fill is removed from valve cover, is this normal, i also have small oil drip at pan gkt.

replace the pcv valve. If it is not working it will allow pressure to build up in the crankcase. this will cause leaks everywhere.

SOURCE: how much will it cost for a mechanic to change oil pan gasket on my 1998 chevy blazer 4wd big v6 engine?

Gasket = $35 (permatex rubber)
Labor - my manual says 3 hours.
You'll have to be responsible for figuring out the labor price per hour depending on where you are located.
In MI, a garage is about $50/hr, and dealership = $85/hr
CA might be $95/$150/hr.

Parts are minimal on the job - its all labor.
Figure in about $20 for shop supplies... gasket remover, sealant, rags, etc.

SOURCE: can i remove oil pan without removing engine 1984

Yes, you can remove the pan without removing the engine. You may have to remove anything preventing you from getting the pan out or you may have to disconnect the engine mounts and raise the engine enough to get the pan out.

I have a leak from the oil pan ...of my 1992 mercury topaz and im needing to know what all i will need to do to repair it


You didn't list your engine size so please pick the approriate task:

2.0L Engine
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise the vehicle and support safely with jackstands.
  3. Drain the crankcase of oil.
  4. Remove the attaching bolts securing the oil pan to the engine.
  5. Clean the oil and gasket mating surface completely, and allow to dry.
To install:
  1. Apply a 1/8 in. (3.18mm) bead of silicone sealer D6AZ-19562-B or equivalent between the oil pan and engine crankcase.
  2. Install the oil pan using the attaching bolts. Torque bolt to 5-7 ft. lbs. (7-10 Nm).
  3. Lower vehicle, and fill crankcase with correct amount of engine oil.
  4. Start engine and check for leaks.

2.3L Engine
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise the vehicle and support safely with jackstands.
  3. Drain the crankcase of oil, and drain the cooling system by removing the lower radiator hose.
When draining coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze, and could 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 roll restrictor if equipped with a manual transaxle.
  2. Disconnect the starter cable.
  3. Remove the starter from the vehicle
  4. Unfasten the bolts securing the rear oil pan to the transaxle case.
  5. If equipped with a manual transaxle, remove the secondary air injection tube at the check valve.
  6. Remove the heater supply tube located at the lower water pump inlet tube assembly.
  7. Loosen the bolts and remove the brackets at the block and water pump inlet tube and A/C compressor line at the pan.
  8. Using a prybar between the engine and body of car, flex engine enough the remove oil pan.
  9. Clean the oil and gasket mating surface completely, and allow to dry.
  10. Clean both mating surfaces of oil pan and cylinder block making certain all traces of RTV sealant are removed. Ensure that the block rails, front cover and rear cover retainer are also clean.
  11. Remove and clean oil pump pick-up tube and screen assembly. After cleaning, install tube and screen assembly.
To install:
  1. Apply a bead of RTV E8AZ-19562-A sealer or equivalent, in the oil pan groove. Completely fill oil pan groove with sealer. Sealer bead should be 0.200 in. (5mm) wide and 0.080-0.150 in. (2.0-3.8mm) high (above oil pan surface) in all areas except the half-rounds. The half-rounds should have a bead 0.200 in. (5mm) wide and 0.150-0.200 in. (3.8-5.1mm) high, above the oil pan surface.
Applying RTV in excess of the specified amount will not improve the sealing of the oil pan, and could cause the oil pickup screen to become clogged with sealer. Use ad equate ventilation when applying sealer.
  1. Install oil pan to cylinder block within 5 minutes to prevent skinning over. RTV needs to cure completely before coming in contact with any engine oil. Ideally, about 1 hour at ambient temperature between 65-75°F (18-24°C) is recommended as a drying time.
  2. Install oil pan bolts lightly until the 2 oil pan-to-transmission bolts can be installed.
  3. Install 2 oil pan-to-transaxle bolts. Tighten to 30-39 ft. lbs. (40-54 Nm) to align oil pan with transaxle. Loosen bolts 1/2 turn.
  4. Tighten all oil pan flange bolts to 15-22 ft. lbs. (20-30 Nm).
  5. Tighten 2 oil pan-to-transmission bolts to 30-39 ft. lbs. (40-54 Nm).
  6. Install brackets for A/C compressor line and water pump inlet tube.
  7. If equipped with a manual transaxle, fasten the air injection tube.
  8. Install the starter and cable.
  9. Lower vehicle.
  10. Install engine oil and coolant.
  11. Connect the negative battery cable.
  12. Start engine and check for coolant and oil leaks.
