I pour water into my radiator and at the same time I have my oil plug out and I can see the water pouring through the oil pan I believe could ya help me out with this one

If water/coolant is coming out of the oil pan drain you have major problems. Possible internal cracked engine block/cracked cylinder head or bad head gasket.Do not run the engine as this will cause the bearings/motor to seize until it is fixed

How do I change oil pan gasget

Jack up truck for safety sake put jack stands under frame . remove all engine oil remove all bolts holding oil pan on if their is not enough room to drop pan you may have to remove bolts holding motor mounts and jack up engine. if front end linkage is still in the way remove linkage. pull oil pan out. check gasket that was between block and oil pan if any stuck to block of engine remove with gasket scraper or wire brush or wire wheel on drill.make sure mating surface is clean put new gasket on new oil pan I like to use a high temp sealer on gasket both sides. Put pan with gasket back in place of old oil pan and tighten all bolts. jack engine down ,replace moter mount bolts replace any linkage you took apart. and dont forget to replace engine oil. make sure oil plug is in pan before pouring oil in . before starting engine check that no oil is leaking than start engine and check for any leaks again if all is good your done. if this was helpful please leave good feed back. A good temp fix on a rusted oil pan is JB weld make sure no oil is on pan clean with towel and rubbing alchol .you may have to drain oil first. if it is rusted badly you may have to use a wire brush on a drill to clean the area to patch. if patched properly it may last for years.

How to replace oil pan in 2006 suzuki xl-7

Depends on ease of access. Many oil pans can be dropped without removing the engine. You will have to put car up on ramps and chock the wheels. Set emergency brakes and make sure car is in Park. I know, sounds like overkill, but better to much safety than one deadly accident. Drain your oil pan just like you would to do an oil change. Locate your oil pan bolts and carefully remove them. This should allow the pan to drop free for the gasket to be replaced. The leak may be due to loosened or lost bolts and not a bad gasket. You might try tightening them first and replacing any lost ones. Be sure not to over-tighten or could could bend the pan and that's a whole new bucket of problems. If you do replace the gasket, clean both surfaces, put new gasket on pan with a THIN bead of gasket sealant, put a THIN smear on top of the gasket and put back onto engine block. Tighten bolts to specified torque. May as well put on a new oil filter. No sense keeping cruddy oil filter with new oil. PUT OIL IN ENGINE. Remove from ramp and let run a bit, shut off for 5 minutes and recheck oil level. Be forewarned, this is a really dirty, crungy job. Wear clothes you're not emotionally attached to. Have hot water and dish soap at the ready to clean-up. No body wants to grab a door knob that's got yucky motor oil on it. And jump straight to the shower.

Replaced oil pan gasket on and now oil is pouring out when the engine is off

Did you use a torque wrench on the pan bolts? They have to be set to inch pounds of torque, if you over do it or under torque it, there are problems.

To me it sound like you have oil getting into your radiator fluid either from engine or transmission lines..As for the overflow problem make sure the fan is coming on when it gets hot..It could be water pump or radiator or thermostat

My radiator was leaking and had oil in it so i had to flush it out unexpectedly the same night a cold front moved an it froze what little water an oil was in it, i dont think there was enough to crack the...

Unless you drained the water from your block directly, you would have had about 2/3rds of your total water still in the engine. So if it got down below freezing then it doesn't look like your going to be using that engine anymore. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Unless I'm miss understanding and you did pull the plugs on your block, then you may come out okay.
