Taking oil pan off my 1997 model chevy with a 4.3 vortec motor


You have to remove both engine mount bolts, then jack the engine up until it starts lifting the truck. The pan still will not come out until you pry it out. Be careful. You will also have to pry it back into place. If it is four wheel drive, remove the front differential first.

Removal procedure of oil pan for a 1997 chevy


To remove the engine oil pan either the engine has to be lifted all the way off of the motor mounts and the oil pan should just clear the flex-plate and transmission, or the front axle dropped down out of the way, or the transmission and flex-plate will have to be removed.

Usually if the engine can be lifted enough to fit a piece of 2x4 wood between the motor mounts and the frame then the oil pan will usually just have enough clearance to be removed from the rear and the oil pan should just clear the transmission and the flex-plate. Also, be sure to check that the fan blade does not damage the fan shroud when lifting the engine.

Let me know if you require any further assistance.

On a 2002 isuzu trooper 3.5 V6 with auto and 4wheel drive do i need to remove engine to pull oil pan? i have a loud banging in motor and need to check crankshaft & bearings


Yes, you need to pull the engine to remove the oil pan. This requires that you remove the propeller shafts and the third cross member to slide the transmission toward the rear of the vehicle. I suggest you purchase a service manual before you start this process. More than likely the rod bearing for cylinder 1 has failed. This seems to be a common problem with later model 3.5L Trooper engines because the oil pump and oil gallery do not deliver oil as efficiently to the number 1 rod bearing.

Put in new rod and main bearings oil drops to zero after warmup 1997 2.2 honda accord put in manual gage to check for sure also put in new headgasket and rings good oil pressure to start then gone what am...


Well the cam bearings will have to do with this also,if it has them,if not it can be the wear in the cam carriers.But most likely the crankshaft journals are worn to much,the crank would need turning,and over size rod,and main bearings would need to be installed.

your goign to have to rebuild the engine, if there is metal flake in the oil it has taken the cam rings and rod bearings and pistons, you can get a rebuild kit from www.jcwhitney for $265.00 for engine kit with bearings new pump new lifters cam piston rings and all other parts you will be needed, you will have to bore out engine and replace cam bearings and lifters.

1989 jeep cherokee makes loud knocking noise in straight line six 4.0 engine. Engine does not smoke and does not appear to have a miss.


Four things can give you a knocking noise. 1. failed rod bearing 2.failed main bearing 3. Bad piston wristpin 4. broken flex plate (auto trans)
If It's a bearing, likely you are seeing lower than normal oil pressure. Any bearing repair requires the pan to be dropped but to do the job correctly requires engine removal, crank re-grinding or replacement and oiling system cleanout (expensive). Wristpin (piston/rod assembly) can be serviced without engine removal but pan and cylinder head need to be removed. Flex plate is pretty much a trans remove and replace, with new wheel.
Only a good experienced tech can differentiate between the noises so I suggest you seek aid in your diagnosis, though, if either bearing or piston is the problem I'd likely find another engine before considering the repair.
