2088 ford explorer 50,000 miles small spots of transmission fluid on driveway, is this going to be a huge transmission repair?


You could just have loose trans pan bolts or leaks at cooling line fittings. I don't have the Torque specs on hand for the trans bolts but you will need a smaller Torque Wrench rated in inch-lbs. rather than foot-lbs. for the small size these units use.

What you could try is a trans filter change/cleaning which is done by taking the trans pan off and servicing the trans filter. The pan would be reinstalled.

Now go to a shop which uses new pan gaskets because your old one may be leaking and may need to replaced anyway.

SOME FAST CHANGE OIL SERVICES OFFER TRANSMISSION FLUID SERVICES-BUT THEY WILL ONLY PUMP OUT THE OLD FLUID WITH A MACHINE AND WILL NOT REMOVE THE TRANS PAN. Your trans needs to be looked at for leaks and the above procedure will not fix your problem.

It is not impossible to have a tailshaft seal leak or shift solenoid covers leak, even a speedometer cable fitting can leak. A visual inspection will tell.

If you are careful, and find a leaking trans pan, tightening it up with a 1/4 inch drive Rachet is all you need in lieu of a Torque wrench. Can not emphasize enough not to reef on these tiny bolts.

Torque specs for the trans pan bolts 1990 ford probe automatic?


The tightening is less torque, buyt rather gasket and pan squish.... barley gets tight, but too much and leaks happen.

Be certain to reform the pan bolt holes before you replace the pan.

So tightening happens evenly and stop just as the gasket shows deformation. This is after even tightening 2 or 3 steps....

Need torque specs for oil pan bolts


torque specs for these bolts can be found in a Haynes or Chilton manual availiable from your local parts store, or maybe at your local library, however these bolts are usually no more than 14 ft pounds, unlike cylinder head bolts, the bolts do not need to have any stretch factor to hold the oil pan gasket in place or sealed.

How to change the oil pan on my 2000 Ford Contour 4cyl.......I was told at the oil change place that it was all rusted out and leaking and needs to be replaced....How big a job is this???? Can I do this,...


It shouldn't be that big of a deal. If the oil pan is the only part that has oil on it, it is most likely an oil pan gasket or rtv sealant that needs to be replaced. If you have actual holes in the pan then your problem is probably bigger. Depending on how bad the rust is, getting those fasenters out might present a problem so I would try turning a couple before draining all the oil. If the bolts turn then drain the oil from the plug as if you were doing an oil change. There are twelve of these bolts and there is a proper untightening and tightening sequence which is difficult to explain without a diagram but try and work in a spiral pattern from the center. Once it is off make sure you scrape all rtv off and any oil residue otherwise it will leak again. Re-apply rtv or whatever ford recommends and when it is ready, put it back trying to tighten the bolts from the center working your way out in a criss cross spiral pattern. Hope all goes well
