How do I replace the oil pan gasket?

That really depends on the make and model of your vehicle. I have had luck doing it without taking anything loose, using great stuff sealer in the cheez whiz can. Drain the oil, lift the vehicle, and take your time loosening the oil pan. Clean everything with brake parts cleaner and apply the cheez whiz all the way around. Put it all back together loosely, and let the sealer set up before tightening all the oil pan bolts to spec. Takes a lot of time and patience.

Please mark my answer as helpful, and feel free to post your model in the comments as well as details such as how bad your leak is, whether the gasket is any good or not will be found out when disassembly happens. If it's not all one piece, it needs a new one. replace-oil-pan-gasket-l0u5xrrbjmm23votbgnhzwek-1-0.jpg

Rusty pan on the trans of 94 1500. Want a stamped steel deep pan(tow a boat) trans if fine just not waiting for the pan to leak all over the driveway or worse.. Ideas?

A new pan can be found on ebay for about $75. I would check your local dealership first though. Either way, a few good coats of Rust-Oleum to slow up the rusting problem might be a good idea.

1998 ford windstar 3.8 rusted through oil pan leaking Estimated cost to fix... Can something be done other than replacing oil pan ?

I had a similar problem with my Pontiac Grand Prix. I solved it by buying some windshield sealer (available at an auto parts store), finding a short sheet-metal screw, LIBERALLY applying the glue to the screw, and screwing it into the leaky hole. I drove the car for years like this - NEVER had another oil leak, and sold the car.

Removing rusted shroud bolts from a 2004 Mazda 3.

Funny that I ran into the same thing a few hours ago. I started on the driver's side screws first. The two screws on that side broke under the head, luckily. Then I came to the screws under the radiator. First remove the push-lock fastener. Use a 10mm open wrench to keep the nut from turning. I have long arms and was able to reach them. The two remaining screws on the passenger's side did not break off but instead broke the holes in the splash pan. If this part is over $120 then I will fix what I have by riveting aluminum sheet to the splash pan. Epoxy will not stick to this stuff.

Good Luck!

Oil pan

yes the engine has to be raised to be removed. i have had this same problem on a customers car. he didnt want to go to the expense of replacing the pan . so we tried JB weld on the pan and that was over 2 yeas ago and its still holding. the trick to JB weld is CLEAN. remove all the oil from the pan and clean with brake cleaner inside and out and grind the area clean to remove the rust . you might burn threw the pan but that is ok. just remember very clean . and wait 24 hours before you put oil in the engine.
but your right the correct fix is to replace the pan. but is the car worth the expence?
good luck

Rusted oil pan screw

Ooff many things could be done here, I'd start by trying to use more leverage to try and get the bolt free (longer wrench, socket with a power bar). Try using the box end of a wrench and tapping the other end with a hammer. Don't use excessive force or you might break the threads out of the pan. A little heat around the plug (without melting the pan) with a propane torch might also help a bit. If this doesn't work, an impact gun with a socket will probably work (wear old clothes or coveralls because you will get nice and oily on this one, believe me I speak from experience) Sometimes it has to be done.

All this of course will probably work unless some dumb*** welded the plug back on. Sounds kind of funny but a lot of quick oil change places will occasionally strip threads on a plug and then weld it back on the pan, it is done a little bit too commonly...

If you tried everything else and the plug won't come out, or if the plug was welded, you will need to replace the oil pan...
