The official shop manual reads :
Remove nose cone brackets bolts from oil pan.
Remove lower transmission flange to oil pan bolts.
Remove oil pan bolts.
Using designated pry points to break loose the seal. Bump the pan with a rubber mallet to loosen the pan from the engine block.
Remove oil pan.
By the illustrations, the only thing in the way is the oil pickup tube.... Good luck !

SOURCE: oil leak

this could be many possibilities. The best way to find out is to raise it up (if not high enough already) and wipe down everything that has oil on it. Once you do this you can sit there for a bit or do something else for a few minutes and come back to it. Use a flashlight to see where the oil may be dripping from and if you can not find it you may have to run the truck for a bit to see.

SOURCE: removing the oil pan from a 1994 vw jetta

you have to remove the oil pan without the gasket because the gasket is attached to your oil pan baffle and that can't be removed until you unbolt your oil pump. i pried the **** out of mine until i realized the gasket couldn't come with it. no haynes manual will explain it as simple as it could be, i hate those books

SOURCE: replacing a fuel pump on a 2002 saturn lw300

You can check in the trunk and remove the felt cover see if there is a round panel cover that you can remove to get to the tank. If your unlucky and have to remove the tank you will have to remove the tank. The cover may be under the spare tire so pull it out. It is not to difficult to do, if you drive it till the gas is almost out you can remove the two bolts that hold the tank in place. Use wd-40 to spray on the bolts and also spray the hinges on the oppitse side of the straps. once the nuts are off drop the tank down. You will need to pull the screws off the tank filling tube so it will come down as well. drop the tank down far enough for you to get to the fuel tank sending unit. it will have philips screws holding it in place. Mark two spots with a felt tip pin, (Sharpe) white is better and mark two holes so you can line the it back up for the holes and the hoses. disconnect the fuel line and return line disconnect the battery of the car for safety then pull the wires off it can be a plug or it may have nuts on them. When you remove the nuts or screws out pull the pump out and you will have to angle the pump to get the float out. I recommend that you replace the pump and the sock on the end of the pump. Do not buy after market buy factory replacement only you only want to do this once. mark the new pump holes on the pump using the old pump as an example, will save a lot of time to get it to fit in and match and the lines will line up, tighten all screws up put the lines back on and the clamps and reinstall the tank in place. yo can use your knees to hold it in place till you get the clamps lined up and started. Screw the nuts down till tight and your set to go just hook up the battery again and your set to go.
SIde Note, Never let your car get below 1/4 of tank of fuel, the reason is gas is the coolant for the pump if it goes lower than that the pump will heat up and will burn out. Many people don't know this so I thought I would add this to your knowledge

SOURCE: oil leaking from back of motor . changed oil

The oil pressure switch is located on top at the
transmission end of the engine.
If the switch is leaking, it could appear to be coming
from the places you mentioned. Hope this helps.
Good luck

How do u put oil catch can on 04 rsx


Hi, if this is a modification which you wish to carry out, tou will need to find a suitable container, and fit it in a convenient location in the engine bay. Then fabricate lines from the engine breathers, ie, cam box, engine top end breather and the engine block, oil pan, breathers to the catch tank. Ensure that the catch tank is baffled and has a pressure release . breather fitted to avoid being pressurised and then dunping oil..

Look in a competition car magazine, they will have one listed for your vehicle.


Good luck.

MY SATURN 1 SHOWS NO OIL WHEN IT IS COLD BUT WHEN CAR IS TURNED ON IT SHOWS FULL WHY IS THIS


To check engine oil level engine needs to be off, if check while engine running, oil will splash inside oil pan and all over your dip stick giving you bad reading, Check oil level with engine off and add to full mark on oil dip stick. Running engine with low oil will cause major damage to your engine. To check transmission level engine needs to be running at normal engine temp.

Changed oil pan gasket now i dont have much oil pressure


If oil pressure was fine before you changed the gasket, it's likely that some debris was loosened up (probably under the pan baffle) and got onto the oil pump pickup, restricting flow. The only other cause of low pressure would be worn engine bearings, which would not happen just by changing oil pan, unless you messed with either bearings or pump while pan was down. Remove the pan and carefully inspect the pump pickup for debris!!! DO NOT DRIVE VEHICLE 'TILL YOU HAVE CORRECTED THIS OR YOU WILL DAMAGE BEARINGS!!!
