Most manufacturers use an adhesive sealant in place of a gasket
use a sharp object like a paint scraper and push (tap) it into the joint to break the seal

2002 Chevrolet Malibu oil light on & valves clattering


Check the oil level on the dip stick and make it correct. This engine should have a low oil shut down feature. Possible oil pump failure. With oil at correct level, restart engine. If the oil light does not go out with engine running, shut down immediately. Severe Internal rotating component bearing damage has already occurred. look for loose oil filter or hole in oil pan.

05 malibu leaking oil from rear of engine


This may be from excessive pressure in the sump from blow-by from the compression process . It is from a blocked PCV valve that is not equalising that pressure. I have also known oil leaks to happen because the rear main bearing cap is leaking oil past the join around the bolts (loose) or no sealing compound used in assembling the rear main bearing.. I would look at the PCV valve as it is the cheapest test first.. Check that the oil is not coming from the front gear box seal or torque converter seal.

Engine knocking noise


this could be a rod knock. it would require droping the oil pan. a rod cap could be loose or it could be a spun bearing. this could also mean having to replace the crank shaft. hopefully it is an accessory on the engine that is loose

Oil pump


it's not easy even for pro mechanic.
oil pan has to be droped , in order to repl. oil pump.
but I think you pump is ok , the problem is o-rings between oil pan and cyl. block , that's were you loosing oil pressure , which is again - oil pan has to come out.
Can't be done by a careful rookie.

Insufficient Flow problem with back pressure.


The 4 cyl does not have a PCV or EGR. There are a few reasons this could happen, drain plug loose, oil pan gaskets or bolts loose or broken, front cover gasket loose, crankshaft front or rear oil seal leaking, oil filter looseworn valve stem. Check all you fittings before checking these next three. Piston rings not installed right, piston and cylinders worn excessively, damaged oil pressure switch. I know this is long, but in my experience it is usually a loose bolt or fitting. Hope this helps
