How to fix a oil pan that is loose on a Pontiac Gran Am SE

Take an 8mm socket, rachet and extension, Jack up the car enough to roll under on a creeper or put it up on the lift if you have one and tighten every bolt in the bottom of your oil pan. I don't have the torque specs but make sure each one is snug but not overtightened. It's easy to strip the threads if you over do it. Once you have snugged them all up, take a rag and some WD-40, clean off the pan and all the leaked from around the bolt holes. Start the engine and let it warm up to normal operating temp... Look for leaks. If you still have leaks you may need to drain your oil, remove the pan and replace the gasket. You can also use the blue gasket maker silicon Follow the same steps re-installing the pan, check for leaks and hopefully that will cure it for you.

(1999 pontiac grand prix 3.1 v6) how do I change my transmission fluid and filter?

You have to drop the tranny pan and drain the fluid into a large container. Get one of those large round ones from the part store, you will need one thatcan hold 10-12 qts of fluid. Some pans have drain plugs but most do not and you will have to loosen all the bolts untill you get the old pan to break the seal, leave the bolts on but loose enough to break the seal and let the fluid drain out of one side, then you can start removing the bolts. The filter is bolted to the underside of the transmission right above the pan. Simply remove the old one and bolt the new on on. Be carefull not to bend the pan and clean all surfaces of old gasket material before re installing new gasket.

On the 2000 Grand Prix, is the oil pan the one in front, or is that the transmission fluid pan?

The one in front should be the oil pan, the transmission pan is stamped steel and sort of "L" shaped, starting on the drivers side and wrapping around behind the engine oil pan. The trans pan also does not have a drain plug, where the engine oil pan does.

How do you remove the oil pan on 2001 grand prix

Remove the motor mount bolts on both sides. Using a jack & wood block, jack the engine high enough to allow the pan clearance enough for removal. Use wood blocks(4 by 4) at motor mounts & lower engine mounts onto the blocks. Lower & remove jack & block at jack. Remove pan bolts & carefully using a large pry bar or common screwdriver pry the pan away from engine . Good luck!

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
