SOURCE: replac 2003 monte carlo oil pan gasket

To remove the oil pan on any vehicle, first remove anything obviously in your way...starter, exhaust pipe etc. Then disconnect the engine mounts and raise engine to gain sufficient clearance between frame and pan. You cannot support the engine from under the pan so either use a fixture above the engine or put blocks between mounts and engine to support it. After all rail bolts have been removed, remember that the oil pump pickup will interfere with removal somewhat but pan can be maneuvered around it. Anything preventing you from getting the pan out will then need to be removed or moved as they are identified. Be careful when raising the engine that you do not break anything above it as it comes up.

The engine has to be supported and the cradle under the engine has to be removed. After everything is reinstalled the front end has to be realigned.

SOURCE: Only 24,647 miles on my 2005 Equinox bad head gasket

This is common problem with some GM vehicles. I would go to the dealer and see if they can help you even if it is out of warranty. Your vehicle only has 24,647 miles so it is obvious there was a manufacturing defect. They may repair it out of warranty as a courtesy to you. It is done all the time. Honda just replaced the radio in my car that was out of warranty at no charge. Be pleasant and ask for help. If the dealer refuses then ask for the phone # of the district manager. Call them and if they refuse then you have no choice but to have it repaired and pay of it. Just make sure you tell them this is the last GM vehicle you will ever buy. Immediately get rid of this vehicle as you will have this problem again.

SOURCE: changing oil pan gasket on 02 impala ls 3.8

The engine does have to be raised. The bolts are not easy to get to until the engine is lifted and the engine mount is removed. I'm doing this job right now and the book time is around 5 hours.

SOURCE: Where is the transmission Fill plug on a 2005 chevy equinox?

There is no fill plug on transmission pans, you have to fill them from the
dipstick tube in the engine bay. Get a long funnel that will fit into the
dipstick tube hole, and then fill it that way. Make sure you turn the
vehicle on while filling it, and put it through all the gears, with your foot
on the brake. This will make sure your torque convertor is being properly
filled, along with the trans. Good luck.

The car I was asking about the time needed to replace an oil pan gasket is on a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu 3.6L engine V6.

Tywana, First you place an oil catcher, then remove the oil drain nut and let all the oil out. Then you remove all of the little bolts up higher, all the way around the pan. This will be messy, so have some cardboard and paper down. Then you pull off or scrape off the gasket with a plastic (not metal) scrapper. Then you put on a new gasket and put the oil pan back up.

How can I change the transmision fluid in my 2005 chevy equinox?

Most transmission pans do not have a drain plug. To drain the transmission the velicle will have to be raised. I usually set a large drain pan-several quarts in size-under a rear corner of the transmission pan. I loosen about three bolts on the corner so the transmission fluid will drain. When drained, I remove the rest of the bolts-all 32 or more of them. With the pan off check the color of the fluid look for burnt looking fluid. See if the fluid smells burnt. If so you may have other transmission problems. Look for metal pieces in the transmission pan another indicator of other problems. Clean all the old gasket from the pan and transmission housing-be careful not to gouge either the pan or housing. I use my finger or thumbnail if possible. Gouging either of these places will cause leaks. If you're going to replace the screen do so now. Place the new pan gasket on the pan. Check with the manufacturer's specs before using any permatex or other silicones to hold the pan gasket. I always slide a bolt or two through the pan and gasket holes, lift the pan, and start the bolts. Go slow. Make sure each bolt is going through the gasket hole before tightening it to the transmission housing. Replace the bolts and tighten to a snug using a criss-cross pattern. Go back and forth across the pan tightening each bolt a few turns until all are tight. Don't overtighten the bolts. Doing so will damage the pan gasket, When all bolts are tight, refill the transmisson slowly checking for leaks. Fill the transmission to manufacturer's specifications.
