The engine has to be supported and the cradle under the engine has to be removed. After everything is reinstalled the front end has to be realigned.

How do i replace oil pump on 01 monte carlo ss


If the oil pan will clear the steering components without jacking up the engine then drop the pan and unbolt the oil pump. You'll need to get a new pan gasket for the oil pan too.

I have a 1987 Plymouth voyager with a 3.0L V6 and I have a leak between the oil pump and the oil pan how can I fix it


It's probably the pan gasket so I would drop the pan and replace the gasket, bit first just check all the pan bolts and make sure they aren't just loose and causing the problem.

Having an oil leak at the bottom of my camry, not the oil pan gasket what else could it be.


There are three other area's that can leak, here they are in order of how often they occur
1.Engine Valve cover gasket(s) (2 if V6 engine), oil runs down the engine and drips off the pan.
2.Rear crankshaft seal leaking
3.Front crankshaft seal leaking. Oil is blown back by air pressure while driving and rips off of pan.

I got litle moisture in the oil the oil looks like milke it doest get hot, but its get litle drops of water in the oil what can I do?


You may have a head gasket leaking. Head gaskets can leak two different ways. One is to the exterior. You will see it and it will be quite obvious. The other is a water leak into the cylinder. the water gets into the oil pan via that route. Do you see water or steam (looks like white smoke) issuing from your tailpipes?

My car is leaking oil, it is from the basepan. Is


By basepan, do you mean the oil pan? The 3800 engine in your monte has problems with the pan gasket leaking, or the pan itself rotting. You can do it yourself, but it requires either lifting the engine up about 6 inches, or dropping the cradle.

If you can do that, then yes, you can change it yourself, otherwise, you will need to take it to the shop. I've done 3 of them and it is a pain. Unless you're really into being a mechanic, take it somewhere.

Do i need to drop the oil pan to ghange the timing cover gasket on a 95 ford mustang v6?


You can pull the motor mounts bolts and jack the motor up alittle, that will give you enough clearance to drop your oil pan. If you try and replace the timing chain cover without dropping the oil pan, you will more than likely wind up with an oil leak.

You should be able to replace the timing cover without removing the oil pan. The gasket set should contain gaskets allowing you to cut the oil pan gasket and put in a new partial gasket in this area. In the corners make sure you use some RTV sealant. If you are careful, it can be done. Like Bob A says you can end up with a oil leak without dropping the pan (unless you clean up the area and properly apply the RTV and gasket). If you have time to drop the oil pan, then I would do that.

How to cange and oil pan gasket on a 87 monte carlo


The oil pan is at the bottom of the engine. You might have the exhaust in the way, in which case you need a helper so that you can remove the exhast from the engine and take the entire pipe from the vehicle. From there, make sure you drain all the old oil from the engine and pan. Unthread all the bolts that surround the old oil pan gasket (you may have to remove the starter motor to gain access to a few bolts). Lower the pan carefully off the engine block (the oil pump and oil filter screen are within the oil pan. You want to make sure not to damage these componets or the baffle inside the oil pan). Your new gasket may have four retainers-especially if it's a Felpro gasket. These retainers go into the corners of the engine block mating surface for the oil pan. Slide your gasket up onto the retainers and engine block, then put your oil pan onto it (the retainers will hold it loosely in place. Put all the bolts but the four corners into the engine block. Remove the retainers and replace the bolts. Reconnect the exhaust pipe. Fill engine with oil, run, and check for leaks.
