Unfortunately it is a time consuming job. Ask him for more specifics. Is it the oil pan, the gasket , or REAR main seal?

Changing a oil pan for a 95 grand marquis


Just loosen oil plug and drain...take out pan bolts... drop down...make sure alt gasket material is off of both pan and bottom of motor. Lay new gasket on oil pan...possibly use gasket sealer to keep gasket in place...a very thin layer on oil pan then put gasket on. Let dry for a bit then bolt back up...make sure oil plug is back in then refill....cheers!

My brother wrecked his 96 grand marquis ls and I was wondering if I could use his fob transmitter on my 96 grand marquis ls can this work?


You could try it, but I'm going to about 99.5% guaruntee it won't work, for programming reasons. HOWEVER, if you replace the computer/receiver unit out of your brother's Grand Marquis LS, it ought to work very well. Hope it works well!

Oilpan replacement


I will try to save you money. If the pan is leaking around the gasket you many be able to tighten it enough to reseal it. There are some products that can seal spot leaks like "Seal-All". It is like a model airplane glue that resists gas and oil.

For rusted pans you can use "JB Weld" This hardens and strengthens what you put it on. You mix it like bondo and it dries quickly. Your pan does not have much pressure in it except from blowby from the pistons.

Unfortunately I have not had to replace a pan on this series of car. Sometimes you need to lift an engine off its mounts and turn the crank to clear the lobes, the oil sump may clear. A quick look at a Chiltons will confirm this repair. Wanted to give you alternatives to pulling the pan so I answered your repair problem. Good Luck on this.

93 mercury grand marquis oil pan leak


Sometimes you can remove the engine mounts and jack the engine up high enough to remove the pan. If it is really rusty it is hard to get any type of epoxy or metal repair to stick.

How much will it cost for a mechanic to change oil pan gasket on my 1998 chevy blazer 4wd big v6 engine?


Gasket = $35 (permatex rubber)
Labor - my manual says 3 hours.
You'll have to be responsible for figuring out the labor price per hour depending on where you are located.
In MI, a garage is about $50/hr, and dealership = $85/hr
CA might be $95/$150/hr.

Parts are minimal on the job - its all labor.
Figure in about $20 for shop supplies... gasket remover, sealant, rags, etc.

Coolant leaking from underneath car near oil pan.


THIS IS STRANGE, BECAUSE THE NEXT PAN BEHIND THE OIL PAN IS THE TRANSMISSION PAN. UNLESS MECURY HAS DEVELOPED SOME STRANGE SYSTEM THERE SHOULD BE NO WATER OR COOLANT ANYWHERE IN THAT LOCATION? IF THE PLASTIC PLUG IS LEAKING IT CAN BE FIXED BY REMOVING IT AND WRAPPING THE THREAD WITH TEFLON TAPE AND RE-INSERTING IT AND TIGHTEN IT. IT THE PAN ITSELF IS LEAKING, THERE ARE ONLY TWO THINGS HERE. ONE, YOU CAN RE-TIGHTEN THE BOLTS TO SEE IF THEY ARE LOOSE AND SEE IT THIS STOPS THE LEAKING. OR, IF THE LEAKING DOESN'T STOP, YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE PAN GASKET WITH A NEW ONE AND REFILL THE TRANSMISSION WITH NEW OIL. YOU MIGHT AS WELL CHANGE THE FILTER WHEN YOU HAVE THE PAN OFF, BECAUSE IT IS PROBABLY OVERDUE. I THINK YOU WILL FIND THIS LEAK IS A STICKY RED FLUID CALLED ATF OR AUTOMATIC TRANS. FLUID. THAT WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED. NEW FILTER, NEW GASKET RETORQUE THE BOLTS, IMPORTANT, DON'T WANT THAT THING FALLING OFF, NEW FLUID, YOUR BABY SHOULD PURR AND NOT WIZ ON THE FLOOR ANYMORE. NOT SURE HOW TO DO ALL THIS? BEAT FEET TO THE NEAREST PARTS STORE AND BUY OR ORDER THE CHILTON OR HAYNES MANUAL FOR 93GRAND MARQUIS AND YOU WILL HAVE PICTURES AND STORIES YOU WON'T BELIEVE! CAN'T GO WRONG! GOOD LUCK!

Oil pan


yes the engine has to be raised to be removed. i have had this same problem on a customers car. he didnt want to go to the expense of replacing the pan . so we tried JB weld on the pan and that was over 2 yeas ago and its still holding. the trick to JB weld is CLEAN. remove all the oil from the pan and clean with brake cleaner inside and out and grind the area clean to remove the rust . you might burn threw the pan but that is ok. just remember very clean . and wait 24 hours before you put oil in the engine.
but your right the correct fix is to replace the pan. but is the car worth the expence?
good luck

This is a very BIG job the oil pan holds the differential and 1 axle runs through the pan. this job takes an experenced mechanic with a lift and proper tools over 8 hours to do. Not my favorate job thats for sure.
