  1. Remove the engine rear support to crossmember bolts.
  2. Remove the crossmember to frame side support attaching nuts and bolts. Remove the crossmember.
This is the only thing I see about possibly giving you any issues and this is for a V-8.....not sure what you may have "hit" when you tried to spin the pan though.

How to replace oil pan


5.2 liter V8 engine?

Remove the four front skid-plate bolts holding the front skid plate, using a ratchet and socket. Remove the skid plate.

Pull the plastic splash shield away from the vehicle, loosening the retaining clips. Remove the splash shield.


  • Place an oil drain container under the oil pan. Loosen the drain fitting with a wrench until oil drains from the pan. When oil is done draining, tighten the drain fitting.

  • Disconnect the electrical connections running to the starter motor. Remove the starter motor mounting bolts with a ratchet and socket, then remove the starter motor.
  • Remove the oxygen sensor socket from the exhaust pipe, using a wrench.
  • Remove the exhaust manifold bolts where the exhaust meets the manifold on both sides, using a ratchet and socket
  • Place an jack under the transmission to support it. Remove the pressure on the transmission crossmember.

  • Remove the bolts that hold the transmission crossmember in place, using a ratchet and socket. Then remove the crossmember. Place a jack stand under the transmission to keep the transmission from falling off the jack if hit. Once removed, the exhaust will hang down, allowing enough room to remove the oil pan.
  • Disconnect the oil level sensor and the nut retaining the transmission cooling lines, using a wrench.
  • Remove the oil pan bolts with a ratchet and socket, then remove the oil pan and gasket.
  • Clean the mounting surfaces of the new oil pan and engine block. Make sure what ever you use to clean the surfaces dosn't gouge the metal.
  • Place a coat of RTV (gasket) sealer on the engine block where the pan will meet the rear main cap.
  • Place the new gasket on the pan and push the new oil pan into place. Finger tighten the oil pan mounting bolts to hold it in place. Tighten the bolts with a torque wrench to 18 ft-lbs. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE BOLTS! Doing so will cause the gasket to deform and create leaks!

  • Connect the oil level sensor and the nut retaining the transmission cooling lines, using a wrench.
  • Place the exhaust back into position and replace the transmission crossmember bolts and crossmember with a ratchet and socket.
  • Remove the jack supporting the transmission.
  • Connect the exhaust back to both sides of the manifold, tightening the bolts with a torque wrench to 20 ft-lbs.
  • Attach the oxygen sensor socket to the exhaust pipe with a wrench.

  • Replace the starter motor by installing the starter motor mounting bolts with a ratchet and socket. Connect the electrical connections to the starter motor that were disconnected during removal.
  • Push the retaining clips on the plastic splash shield into the appropriate retaining clip holes.
  • Replace the front skid plate by replacing the four front skid plate bolts with a ratchet and socket.
  • Fill the engine with 5 quarts of oil. Make sure to check the level on the dipstick to find the exact level when filling.

    How to remove transmission fluid pan.


    first off drain the fluid out of the transmission pan. I always remove the return hose(which is driver side on rad base) and put into a container. Put e-brake on start vehicle and put into drive, this will drain fluid out of transmission. When fluid stops flowing, re-attach return line to rad, put transmission back into park, shut off engine. Remove drain plug from bottom of transmission pan to drain remaining fluid. You will have to disconnect the front axle drive shaft to remove transmision pan. There are 4 bolts attached to flange at front of axle. Remove these bolts and nuts only and move shaft out of the way. Mark placement of at least 1 bolt on flange. If the bolt placement is not correct you will have vibration when 4 wheel drive is engaged. (Grease the bolts when putting back together.) Remove transmision dip stick from holder. There are 2, 10 or 12 mm bolts that hold the dip stick holder in place. These are 1/2 way down the holder and are attached to engine. You can reach these from top or bottom of vehicle. Replace at least 1 bolt when you put back together. If not the holder will vibrate against engine and will be annoying.
    There are 10mm bolts holding the pan in place, remove all but one. When ready ensure there is enough clearance to allow the transmission pan and holder to be removed. Remove last bolt, as the pan drops, you will have to keep the pan level. Basically hold the pan and pull it down in a way that removes the dipstick holder. Since you have the pan off replace the fluid filter and clean plate filter is attached to. Also clean off magnets in transmission pan. The magnets are what picks up any metal pieces. Leave magnets in pan. When putting pan back on replace gasket if required and tighten bolts in offsetting pattern to allow for even seal. I believe it is only 14lbs torque required for the bolts. Do not over tighten as these will strip easily.

    Replace clutch in a 2003 hyundai Elantra


    • The manual transmission in your Hyundai Elantra uses a clutch to engage and disengage the power from the engine to the transmission.
    • The clutch disc is sandwiched between the engine flywheel and the transmission pressure plate.
    • When you switch gears and let off the clutch pedal, there is a short period during which the clutch is slipping to transmit the power in a controlled way. This causes wear on the clutch; over time it will require replacement.
    The procedure to replace the clutch is as follows:--- 1) Jack up the Hyundai Elantra and place on jack stands. 2)Drain the transmission gear oil into a catch pan. To drain the gear oil, loosen the drain bolt with a ratchet. 3)Disconnect both drive axles (half shafts) from the transmission. Use a ratchet to remove the two bolts that hold the steering knuckle to the strut. Once those are out, you can easily pull the axles out of the transmission. The steering knuckle is the component that the wheel and strut attach to. 4)You can locate the two bolts to remove by following the strut down from where it's bolted into the engine bay Removing these two bolts allows you to pull the steering knuckle outward so you can pull the drive axle out of the transmission. 5)Remove the exhaust downpipe from the rest of the exhaust. It will be held on with two bolts at both ends and can be removed with a ratchet. Removing this piece is necessary to gain access to the transmission. 6)Disconnect the shifter cables connected to the transmission. Use a ratchet to remove each shifter cable and its housing.Remove the bolts holding the transmission to the engine block (there will be about seven or eight bolts). Place a transmission lift underneath the transmission to hold it and lower it down. If you don't have a transmission lift, you can use a transmission attachment for your jack.Shift the transmission back and forth until it drops onto the jack. Pull the transmission straight back, ensuring that no pressure is put on the input shaft, then lower the transmission to the ground. 7)Remove the pressure plate and clutch disc from the flywheel with a ratchet tool. Then remove the flywheel with a ratchet tool and replace it with a new flywheel. Alternatively, have your flywheel professionally machined at a machine shop then replace it in your car. Torque the flywheel down to the manufacturer's specifications. 8)Place the clutch disc on the clutch disc alignment tool and insert the tool into the flywheel input shaft hole. Connect the new pressure plate to the flywheel and torque the bolts. Once the pressure plate is torqued down, remove the clutch alignment tool. 9)Grease the new throw-out bearing and place it on the input shaft of the transmission. Once the transmission is installed, it will push against the pressure plate. 10) Reconnect all the parts which you removed while replacing the clutch. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    How to remove automatic transmission from 2001 s-10 blazer 4.3 V-6


    Before you do anything, park vehicle on flat, level concrete floor in an area larger than the vehicle free of clutter, children, pets, and nosy neighbors or uninvolved personnel. Actual helpers are permitted, and in fact one is recommended, to act as a real helper/gofer, and to take action in the event of an accident or emergency. Let some one know you are going to be doing this, and carry a cell phone with you under the vehicle.First, remove negative cable from battery. Second, using a regular floor jack and good jack stands for added stability, raise the front of the vehicle high enough to get under it, and remove the drain plug from the transmission fluid pan (if applicable), or remove fluid pan from transmission, allowing used fluid to collect into a catch-pan of at least 3 gallon capacity. If you have to drop the pan because you don't have drain plug, remove the filter (it just snaps into the valve body), then replace pan with a bolt at each corner; don't worry about the gasket or torque specifications. Third, disconnect the two fluid lines from the transmission, using line wrenches to avoid damage to the line fitting nuts. Using wire or twine, tie these lines off to the frame out of the way of the transmission case. Fourth, unplug any electrical connectors and disconnect the 5-guage red starter wire from the starter motor, the shift linkage, TV cable, and speedometer cable (if so equipped) at this time. Fifth, jack vehicle on all four corners to a height of at least 24"from truck body floorpan to ground. Jack up vehicle all the way around, not just the front. This job CANNOT be done safely on wheel ramps. The entire vehicle must be off the ground, and VERY securely supported by the frame. This is dangerous if you do not make absolutely sure that the vehicle WILL NOT FALL.
    Sixth, remove the U-joint clamps from the front yoke of the drive shaft and from the rear end knuckle. Gently prise the drive shaft from the two U-joint halves and remove from under the vehicle; set clear of work area. On some vehicles, you cannot remove the U-joint clamps from one end of the drive shaft, but this operation is still possible; it depends on your vehicle's configuration. Hopefully, you can remove the U-joint clamps from both ends of the drive shaft because this makes it much easier to remove the front yoke from the transmission. The front yoke just slips into the tailpiece drive shaft seal of the transmission and is held in place by the length of the drive shaft when completely assembled. Just pull STRAIGHT BACK firmly on the yoke until it comes out of the tailpiece drive shaft seal. It is customary for some fluid to leak from the transmission tailpiece when the yoke is removed. If your vehicle is a Four/All Wheel Drive model, repeat this operation AND Step Four for the transfer case and front drive shaft.
    Seventh, remove the tailpiece mounting bolt from the crossmember under the rear of the transmission.
    Eighth, remove the four bolts (2 on each side) which hold the transmission crossmember to the vehicle frame. DO NOT REMOVE THE CROSSMEMBER AT THIS TIME.
