SOURCE: how much to change a oil pan gasket for 2001 grand prix 3.8 gt

If you want to repair the oil pan I would also check lower engine mount for leaking oil and cracks in anti sway bar near fitting's. This due to engine mount is oil filled. OEM sway bar is made of tubular steel and they crack easy. Replacement sway bar is solid steel. Here's the kicker. When they pull the lower frame to service oil pan. The engine mount and sway bar are attached to that frame. A honest mechanic should only charge for parts ($35 for mount and $100 for sway bar) and maybe a extra hour. My mechanic did all in 5 hours. FYI gasket is only $35 bucks. Good luck

SOURCE: What is the proper procedure

Hi, to replace the thermostat housing, thermostat and gasket, follow the detailed instruction below on how to do it.

  • Remove the thermostat housing from the engine block of the Explorer. The easiest way to locate the thermostat housing is to follow the upper radiator hose to the location where the hose connects to the engine. The hose connects to the housing. Hose removal is not required for removal of the thermostat housing.
  • Remove the 7/16 bolts that secure the housing to the engine block of the Explorer with a socket and ratchet. There are two bolts in total. Lift up on the thermostat housing, and push it and the hose off to the side so you can access the thermostat.
  • Remove the fabric thermostat gasket from the engine block and throw it away. Wipe the surface of the engine block clean with a rag.
  • Pull the old thermostat out of the engine block and throw it away. Place the new thermostat into the engine block. The end of the thermostat with the large spring sits inside the block, on a machined lip that sits just inside. The end with the jiggle valve sits inside of the thermostat housing.
  • Place a new fabric gasket onto the mating surface of the engine block and place the thermostat housing on top of it. Bolt the housing ans gasket into place with the original mounting bolts.

I do not have a picture yet, but the labor time to replace this gasket is less than less than 1 hour factory time, and about 1.5 hours chilton time. This is for a 2000 model V6..You are saying that you cannot access all bottom pan bolts?..

1993 Isuzu Rodeo oil not going to top of motor after replacing head gasket?


Wrong Head Gasket or installed wrong

Other possible problems

Given it is over 20 years old, do you really
want to invest even the time into working on it?

Who did the engine repairs,couldn't be a repair shop
or it would have acted up before you got it back!

Leak from housing oil filteager at 2000 kia sport


In most cases, the mount to which the filter attaches is a integral part of the engine block casting, so any leakage there could be a very big problem.

Having said that....I'm relatively sure your problem is not a leak in the filter mount, but rather the filter itself.

If the filter isn't securing tightened after replacing, it can very easily leak.

Most "spin on" filters recommend tightening from 1/2 to 3/4 turns after the initial contact of the gasket on the filter base with the machined gasket seat on the filter mount (the part of the engine block I earlier noted).

Another possibility could be a nicked (cut) gasket.

When replacing a filter, wipe the base seat with a CLEAN rag, and put a light coating of CLEAN oil on the gasket itself (on the spin on filter), thereby reducing the likelihood of gasket damage upon installation.

Hope this is of small degree of help with your problem.

Good luck!

Replaced rear main seals and oil pressure sending on a 2000 z71


Check the oil filter housing and the cooler lines at the housing. The oil filter housing gaskets are good for no more than 15k to 30k miles if your lucky. The lines at the housing are easy to strip out when you reinstall them so take your time if you do it yourself an once you are finished and ready to start the truck, let it run for about 15 minutes and constantly check the area for leaks prior to road testing the vehicle.

Motor oil leaking into overflow


If you mean the coolant overflow I would check the oil dipstick for water oil. It will appear white/tan. If this is the case I would firmly suspect a head gasket.
