SOURCE: Need torque specs for oil pan gasket

There likely is a spec for oil pan but unless you are a finatic, you really don't need to know what it is. Simple rule: Don't crank down ******* any fastener. If corners near crank ends have larger fasteners, you can tighten them a bit more than on siderails. Before tightening anything, install all bolts finger tight, to ensure that they are not cross threaded. To avoid warping pan, tighten from the center of the pan, working towards both ends, alternating from side to side as you go. When you are finished, go over it again, using the same amount of force on each bolt. As I said, end bolts can if larger in diameter, be tightened more but be careful not to tighten so much that you will either split or push the gasket out the sides.. Anywhere two gasket ends **** together, I recommend using a sensor -safe dab of silicone. An oil pan is not under any mechanical stress or pressure. I have used this method for many years and NEVER had one leak. If you really need #s, small fasteners get about 12-15in lbs, larger ones about 20.

SOURCE: Oil Pan Gasket Replacement - How to - GMC Yukon 2000

No big job Really. Just locate your Drain Plug for the Oil. Thepan is right there, Remove the Bolts around the Pan and Remove. You will lose all of your oil so, Have something there to catch it all. Clean it all around the Edges of the Block where the Pan mounts with Degreaser and Make sure that you Scrape the Old Gasket off of Both the Block and the Pan. Run a Thin Bead of Blue ATV Silicone around the Pan Edge, Lay the Gasket on top of this Silicone. Put another Thin line on top of the Gasket and Reinstall. This Silicone is High Temp Silicone and will Seal Very Well. Make sure to put oil Back in the Motor! Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!

If all the bolts are off, then the gasket is holding the oil pan in place and your going to have to tap it with a mallet, Not a hammer but a mallet so you don not damage the oil pan. Good luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: my 2003 ford taurus has oil pan gasket leak just

All you have to do is get under the car with a 1/2" drive ratchet, 3" extension, an extension swivel, and the socket for the bolts on the oil pan. Go through all the bolts and tighten them all up. You will be surprised at how loose some of them are.

How to replace a oil pan gasket 2003 mercury sable


1st. Can you remove the oil pan without partially removing the engine? If - YOU CAN'T - take it to a local ASE Professional. Concerns: 1 - rear main seal, will it be damaged when you remove the oil pan. 2. Front oil seal, pan seal, same concern? Lets assume you can remove the oil pan, ok, ... you MUST get the TWO gasket surfaces clean, smooth, I mean REAL CLEAN. SIT THE oil pan with the gasket surface up and flat, ..CLEAN THE GASKET SURFACES AND EVERY BOLT with QUICK EVAPORATING brake cleaner or acetone. Let then dry. Get some Permatex spray "red" gasket glue/sealer. Spray the pan side of the gasket with the red glue, carefully lay the gasket on the pan, use the bolts to locate the gasket, make sure the gasket is seated against the pan 100% around the edges!!!! Let the gasket dry overnight!! Then spray the face of the gasket with the red sealant before installing, do it while its still tacky. tighten all bolts finger tight, then start a criss cross pattern, start slowly tightening them (WITH A QUALITY TORQUE WRENCH) TO 50% OF RECOMMENDED.VALUE, keeping the criss cross pattern to 75%, then to 100 - 110% of FACTORY SPECIFICATION. This should stop all gasket caused leaks!!

Change an oil pan gasket on a montana


Go down to your parts dealer (hopefully Auto Zone :)) and get the gasket as well as oil and oil filter (unless you are going to use the old oil and have something to catch it in). Drain the oil. Remove the bolts on the oil pan. Remove it and the old gasket. Check to see that ALL of the old gasket has been removed. Clean the mating surfaces. Put new gasket in place on the pan and place to the block. Install bolts and tighten to specs. You can get the bolt torque specs from AZ as well. Add oil before starting engine

Replac 2003 monte carlo oil pan gasket


To remove the oil pan on any vehicle, first remove anything obviously in your way...starter, exhaust pipe etc. Then disconnect the engine mounts and raise engine to gain sufficient clearance between frame and pan. You cannot support the engine from under the pan so either use a fixture above the engine or put blocks between mounts and engine to support it. After all rail bolts have been removed, remember that the oil pump pickup will interfere with removal somewhat but pan can be maneuvered around it. Anything preventing you from getting the pan out will then need to be removed or moved as they are identified. Be careful when raising the engine that you do not break anything above it as it comes up.
