Unless you have about 5 inches of clearance you will be undoing the motor mounts and lifting the motor for clearance

Oil pan leaking.


not the easiest job at home but if you have way to lift the car securely and tools not a problem.
first lift the car and secure.drain the oil.remove the exhaust pipe to clear the oil pan,remove the bolts from oil pan. between the motor and transmission is a small plate.remove the plate to access two more bolt from the oil pan. with big flat screwdriver pray the pan on the back side.you will find lip on block and the pan to insert the pray bar or screwdriver.clean the pan from old gasket.clean the block from old gasket. install new gasket on the pan and insert 4 screw to hold in place.on front of the engine is the timing cover connection.one drop of silicon will seal the gap.place the pan and drive the 4 screw 3-4 turns.install the rest ant slightly tight all across. (ask you auto store for silicone gasket. the old cork is not so good) .tight all screw again.don't over tight.stop if the gasket start to deform out of the pan.replace the oil filter. refill oil and start the car.check for leaks.
good luck.

It appears that i have oil dripping from my oil pan area. is there a gasket on the oil pan i need to replace?


oil leaking anywhere on the engine runs down and gets caught on the oil pan lip, builds up runs over and then looks to be an oil pan leak. so what you do is take the thing to a shop with a lift, like an oil change or muffler shop, and ask them to put it up on the lift so the rest of the engine can be easily examined for leaks. if there is no other place above the oil pan with a thin layer of oil on it, then most likely the pan gasket is leaking. before you buy the gasket take a good look at any suspension hardware which could obstruct easy removal of the oil pan. it may require lifting the engine up out of its mounts to get the gasket replaced, so simply snugging up the bolts holding the pan on and living with a small leak may be the way to go.

Hi, I have a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am, 2.2L, 4cyl. Oil pan gasket has gone bad, do we have to replace the entire oil pan? Or can we just find a gasket somewhere? Any thoughts on where to get either?


Here is the problem, the gasket is all you need as long as there are no holes in the pan, sometimes they hit things besides raccoons and dent the pan, you can get a gasket no problem, here's the problem, not all pans slide out for you to work on without lifting up the engine about 6 inches, there is an oil pump that sumps down in the bottom of that pan, and you can't get the pan out without hitting it especially when there is a motor mount, cross member in the way. You might be able to get the pan down about 2 inches, get the gasket cleaned off without spilling too much **** inside the sump, then stretch the new gasket around the outside of the pan and get it in place, use no adhesive, no silicone, nothing, dry. Good luck, and Hope this helps.

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.

Need to replace the oil pump on a 95 park avenue


You shouldn't have to for head gaskets, makes it easier but not necessary.
For oil pan, you may have too. Depending on how much room there is between pan and crossmember and if pan is in tranny. Some cars the oil pan is 1/4" behind tranny but don't think that is the deal on your car.
