You have to Unbolt the engine mounts and lift the engine, Unbolt the oil pan and rotate the crankshaft by hand to get it to clear the counterweight on the crank. If the engine has 100,000 miles or more replace the oil pump while your in there.

Best way change oil pump in 1999 dodge durango


You have to remove the oil pan. It is different for 2wheel drive and 4 wheel drive. In either case, you have to jack up and support the engine. Most of the time you must also remove the transmission rear mount so you can jack up the transmission also in order to get enough clearance to get the pan out between the transmission bell housing and the frame crossmember.

On 4X4 vehicles, you must also first remove the skid plates and the front drive axle to get the oil pan off.

I have a 2004 Dodge Durango 4.7. About 3 months ago I replaced the oil pump, but believe it was the oil pick up valve that was the problem. 2 days ago, the engine began knocking loudly the entire time it...


Try using a MOPAR oil filter...These cheap after market filters are allowing the oil to drip down into the pan and there is none in the top of the motor on cold starts.

Im having a hard time getting the oil pan off of a 2003 Dodge Durango, 5.9 4wheel drive.


The frame is in the way and you have to lift the engine to remove the pan.
  1. Turn on the Durango and run it for at least 10 minutes, a few times around the block is best. This will get the engine oil up to temperature allowing it to drain better for you.Park the vehicle on a flat, stable surface that gives you enough room to move around under. Jack up the Durango following the directions provided with your jack and jack stands.Open the hood of the Durango and located the engine oil cap, found on the right side of the engine, towards the middle. Remove the cap by twisting it off and set aside, allowing ventilation and pressure release.Climb under the vehicle and located the oil pan. The oil pan is on the underside of the engine, between the car's tires. It is a rectangular shaped pan with a plug located on the end towards the back of the car.Place an oil drip pan under the oil pan and pull the plug by twisting it and pulling it. This will release all oil from the vehicle, draining it into the pan below. Allow the oil to drain until there is nothing left coming out.Use a wrench to loosen the bolts of the oil pan. There are a total of 17 of them located around the edge of the oil pan, connecting it to the frame of the engine. Store safely.Remove the oil pump pickup tube and oil pan gasket, which are connected to the oil pan. You will find these as soon as you drop the oil pan.
    to Replace the Oil Pan Gasket in a Dodge Durango
    1. Jack up the front of the Dodge Durango, and install a jack stand. Block the rear wheels. Remove the oil plug and let the oil drain into a pan, being sure to remove as much of the old oil as possible.Loosen the bolts holding the oil pan with a socket wrench, and remove the bolts with your fingers. Remove the oil filter, starter motor, cooler lines, oil level sensor, heated oxygen sensor connector and exhaust y-pipe, and then take off the oil pan.Scrape off the old gasket with a thin putty knife, being very careful not to scrape the surface. Be sure all of the old gasket is removed, then wipe the surface with solvent. Spread a bit of oil on the surface to promote adhesion, and apply the new gasket.Replace the oil pan, exhaust y-pipe, heated oxygen sensor connector, oil level sensor, cooler lines and starter motor, and install a new oil filter.Raise the vehicle slightly with the jack and slide out the jack stand before lowering the vehicle and removing the jacks.Fill the engine with the appropriate amount of oil. Check the level with the dipstick to be sure you have the right amount.
      this will help.thanks.
