    How to replace oil pan

    5.2 liter V8 engine?

    Remove the four front skid-plate bolts holding the front skid plate, using a ratchet and socket. Remove the skid plate.

    Pull the plastic splash shield away from the vehicle, loosening the retaining clips. Remove the splash shield.

  • Place an oil drain container under the oil pan. Loosen the drain fitting with a wrench until oil drains from the pan. When oil is done draining, tighten the drain fitting.

  • Disconnect the electrical connections running to the starter motor. Remove the starter motor mounting bolts with a ratchet and socket, then remove the starter motor.
  • Remove the oxygen sensor socket from the exhaust pipe, using a wrench.
  • Remove the exhaust manifold bolts where the exhaust meets the manifold on both sides, using a ratchet and socket
  • Place an jack under the transmission to support it. Remove the pressure on the transmission crossmember.

  • Remove the bolts that hold the transmission crossmember in place, using a ratchet and socket. Then remove the crossmember. Place a jack stand under the transmission to keep the transmission from falling off the jack if hit. Once removed, the exhaust will hang down, allowing enough room to remove the oil pan.
  • Disconnect the oil level sensor and the nut retaining the transmission cooling lines, using a wrench.
  • Remove the oil pan bolts with a ratchet and socket, then remove the oil pan and gasket.
  • Clean the mounting surfaces of the new oil pan and engine block. Make sure what ever you use to clean the surfaces dosn't gouge the metal.
  • Place a coat of RTV (gasket) sealer on the engine block where the pan will meet the rear main cap.
  • Place the new gasket on the pan and push the new oil pan into place. Finger tighten the oil pan mounting bolts to hold it in place. Tighten the bolts with a torque wrench to 18 ft-lbs. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE BOLTS! Doing so will cause the gasket to deform and create leaks!

  • Connect the oil level sensor and the nut retaining the transmission cooling lines, using a wrench.
  • Place the exhaust back into position and replace the transmission crossmember bolts and crossmember with a ratchet and socket.
  • Remove the jack supporting the transmission.
  • Connect the exhaust back to both sides of the manifold, tightening the bolts with a torque wrench to 20 ft-lbs.
  • Attach the oxygen sensor socket to the exhaust pipe with a wrench.

  • Replace the starter motor by installing the starter motor mounting bolts with a ratchet and socket. Connect the electrical connections to the starter motor that were disconnected during removal.
  • Push the retaining clips on the plastic splash shield into the appropriate retaining clip holes.
  • Replace the front skid plate by replacing the four front skid plate bolts with a ratchet and socket.
  • Fill the engine with 5 quarts of oil. Make sure to check the level on the dipstick to find the exact level when filling.

    How do I take the door panels off

    the interior door panels? for the most part the panels are of simple design, they sorta just 'pop' on and off, they are held on with plastic screws attached thru the metal interior of the door. start with the end closest to the outside edge of the door and with a plastic 'pop tool' (i forget the exact name for them but they are for removing headlights and skid plate bolts without damaging metal) or even a flat head screw driver with a folded shop towel over the edge to prevent damage to either panel, gently work under the panel all along the side. it should work loose in short order without much fuss, from there you can see the other panel screws and work around handles/manual window cranks.

    Where is the battery located on a 1998 Chrysler curris?

    It's inside the front drivers' side wheel well. Jack up the car and remove the inner splash guards. There's a splash guard under the battery, and the rest of the splash guard is 2 parts.
    It's not necessary, but it might be easier to remove the wheel to access all the bolts/plastic rivets.

    Two questions how do you change a low beam lightbulb in a cadillac srx 2005 and why in early morning starts does the same car hesitate to pull away?

    1. Remove front wheel well front half splash guard, each side. There are about 2 screws and the guard pulls forward to seperate from the rear half.
    2. After removing the splash guard, you can access one screw that attaches the front fascia, each side.
    3. Then about 6 plastic push pin type screws along the bottom, underneath.
    4. About 5 push pin type screws on the top.
    5. Fascia should then simply pull forward. It is a bit bulky and an extra pair of hands is helpful.
    6. Then there are 3 screws to remove the headlamp assembly. Unclip the wiring harness.
    7. Then 4 screws to remove the bulb access cover plate.

    Location of oil filter

    The 2007 Tundra 5.7l engine doesn't have a spin on filter - it uses a replaceable paper cartridge within a permanent housing. Located under the skid plate on the front-left portion of the engine, the oil filter unit has two coolant hoses, a black plastic screw-in housing, and a large, metal, round screw with a 1/2" square fitting in the middle of it. The cartridge-type oil filter is in the housing.

    If equipped with a skid plate, access is accomplished by removing the 5 skid plate bolts, allowing the plate to swing down on integrated hangars (with the front plastic bumper skirt still attached). To completely remove the skid plate, three small screws holding it to the front plastic bumper skirt must also be removed.

    Toyotafilter kits contain a new filter cartridge, a plastic drain plug, and two O-rings. The drain plug is used to drain residual oil from the filter unit prior to removing the plastic screw-in housing. After removing the large, metal, round screw with a 1/2" square fitting in the middle of it, the plug simply snaps into the bottom of the plastic housing. The smaller of the two new O-rings replaces the existing O-ring on the screw.

    Once drained, the plastic screw-in filter housing is removed using a filter wrench (Toyota special service tool). The larger of the two new O-rings replaces the existing O-ring on the screw-in housing. VERY CLOSE ATTENTION must be paid in placing the new O-ring - failure to properly seat the new O-ring could result in a massive oil leak! The filter itself is currently only available from Toyota.

    A molded plastic "box" missing

    I'm thinking this is the cold air intake. The purpose of it is to draw cool air into the engine's intake instead of just drawing the air from the engine compartment. Your call runs better when it take in cooler air, so that's why it's there.

    Under engine splash guard is missing, jeep stalls out when hit big water splash. Where can I find a replacement? and how to install it

    The motor stals out because you get water in the distributor. The best and cheapes way to get a new skid plate would be at a salvage yard if you live near a big city. Often mechanics will know these places or someone that has many old vehicles laying arround somewhere. Installing it should be prety simple, just line up the holes and put in the bolts. Best way would be to take one off then be realy sure about it.
