If it is the Pan, be prepared to tackle a Huge time consuming job.

Hardest part is laying on your back under the car for a long time.

Make sure to soak and tap on the bolts that connect the Front side of the Catalitic converter, those bolet get seizewd ojn pretty tight and break easily.

Try first to torque down the pan to see if that fixes it.

Good to get a manual and see what it entails.

Im trying to empty some oil from my 1996 nissan sentra gxe, i accendently overfilled it. where do i empty it from and how?


This will be a 2 person operation so be ready for this. It works great!!!!
If you have a shop vacuum, turn it on, remove the oil cap and cover the oil cap hole. Have some one under the vehicle and take out the drain plug using a 14mm wrench or suitible tool. Have a drain pan under the hole (oil pan). When ready have the person holding the vacuum remove the hose briefly to drain the oil. When you fill enough has drained then reinstall the plug and check you oil level. If more needs to be drained then repeat above steps till you achive you correct oil level.
besure to always replace drain plug washer/ gasket so you do not create an oil leak.
Hope this helps solve your concern.

Oil leaks under a 1997 super saloon automatic . leaks below bell housing


Could be a couple of possibilities that you'll have to get into looking for. Rear oil pan seal, rear main seal or occasionally rear intake seal will leak down back side of engine. Wipe down motor or spray w/brake clean and watch for leak.

I have a 2001 nissan sentra that I just swapped halfshafts on and a ton of gear oil leaked from the trans housing...where do I refill it and how do I know when it's full?


most manual transmissions will have 2 ports, the lower to drain and the upper to refill. Look for 2 metal plugs with square holes in them . Use a 3/8 inch ratchet or breaker bar to remove plugs. Fill until oil level reaches the level of the top hole.

Oil leaking around the oil pan while running.....


If the oil is motor oil its either the valve cover gasket, oil pan gasket, drain plug(depending on the milage) it may be a rear main engine seal.
If its transmission fluid get back to me need a little more detail of path of leak.

Need to remove gearbox off a 95 S10


I am going to answer this assuming that we are talking about a 2 wheel drive 1995 Chevy S-10, and not the 1991 Sentra your question is listed under. First disconnect the ground lead on the battery, then remove the shifter boot and the shift leverfrom the topside. Then remove the drive shaft by taking the u-bolts off the differential end of the shaft. Put an oil drain pan under the transmission tailshaft, slide the shaft out of the transmission, then unscrew the speedometer cable from the tailpiece of the transmission. Place a jack under the transmission and remove all of the mounting bolts. Remove the bolts holding the transmission bell housing to the engine and remove the starter. Unbolt the clutch slave cylinder, and with the help of a friend slide the transmission out of the clutch and flywheel. You may have to give it a slight turn to dislodge it from the engine. As the manuals usually say, reinstallation is the reverse of the removal. While you have the transmission out, check the condition of your flywheel, clutch plate, pressure plate, and throw-out bearing. Replace or resurface if needed. If the slave cylinder shows any sign of oil leaks, rebuild or replace while you have a chance. If you found this helpful, please don't forget to rate it.

97 jetta with oil pouring out just above where the filter ataches


I have a 1997 jetta and have been through this. Go to the volkswagen dealer and have them pull up the oil cooler housing. You will see a gasket (o-ring) that seals the two pieces of this housing together. Buy that. Your old one has gotten brittle from years of extreme temperature swings and cracked ( it will be like hard plastic when you remove it.) Unscrew your filter, take a 27mm socket (prob need deep well) and unscrew the nut at the top of stud where the filter screws to. Take it all the way off and remove the old o-ring. Clean the area well and put your new oil swabbed o-ring in and reverse the above steps. 30 min 8 dollar fix. Good luck!
