I had to do this, I drove up on ramps, then proceeded to jack up the van`s front end higher, just expanding the shocks to make more clearance under the van, once I did that, it went really well. Good Luck.

Oil Pan Gasket Replacement/ Oil Pan removal


yes the starter does have to be removed but also the engine mounts must be also as the engine must be raised about 10 " to get the pan out. if you do try this make sure you have very very sturdy jack stands for the engine to just a jack as the jack will lift it but wont maintain it long enough to safely remove the pan and reinstall it......good luck and be very carefull

How do i remove the oil pan from a 96 buick regal 3800 series?


I was told it's about a 3 hour job to change the oil pan gasket (on a '95 Regal w/3800 ). It says you must disconnect the power steering lines (because they run along the frame by the oil pan and get in the way), drop the subframe, and raise the engine to get the oil pan off. good-day ! thats GM for ya!! lol, The frame is in your way and the only way to get it out is to move the frame.

I have a 1995 Oldsmobile Silhouette with a 3800 engine. The engine will turn over, but will not start. I am not getting any fire to the coal pack and the injectors want pulse. I have replaced the ignition...


Amke sure that any ground wire has not broken off on the wiring harness. There should be a grooup of wires that ground at the belhousing close to the starter. One of them is the ground for the ignition/coil.

How to remove and replace starter on 3800 engine


start out by disconnecting the battery, remove the 2 starter bolts, once the starter bolts are removed you can remove the small wires off the starter solenoid (take a picture where the wires go so when you reinstall the new starter you know which terminal to put them on), bolt up the new starter and your done.
or you can check out a repair manual from your local library and look at the pictures.

Don't know what size motor you have because you didn't post it so please pick the proper one:

This is for the 4 cylinder motor--

4-cylinder engine starter connections



  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle on jackstands.
  3. If equipped, it may be necessary to disconnect and remove the EGR pipe to access all the starter bolts.
  4. Tag and disconnect the starter battery and control wiring at the starter.
  5. If equipped, remove the starter bracket and/or heat shield.
  6. Remove the starter-to-engine bolts.
  7. Move the starter away from the engine and down to remove from the vehicle. Some starter may be installed with shims between the starter and engine. When the starter is removed, these shims may fall out. Do not loose them.
To install:
  1. Install the starter and shims, if equipped to the engine. Align the mounting bolt holes and insert the bolts. Hand-tighten the bolts.
  2. Tighten the starter mounting bolts to 30–34 ft. lbs. (39–44 Nm).
  3. Install the starter bracket and/or heat shield, if equipped.
  4. Connect the battery and starter control electrical wires to the starter.
  5. If the EGR pipe was removed, install it.
  6. Lower the vehicle.
  7. Connect the negative battery cable.
  8. Start the vehicle to make sure the starter functions correctly.
This is for the V6 motor--
