How do i change the oil pan on a 2007 ford f150 4.2L v6?


4.2L Engine
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
    WARNING
    During engine repair procedures, cleanliness is extremely important. Any foreign material, including any material created while cleaning gasket surfaces, that enters the oil passages, coolant passages or the oil pan can cause engine failure.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the starter.
  4. Drain the engine oil. Install the drain plug when finished.
  5. Remove the 4 bolts and the crossmember.
  6. Remove the 3 oil pan-to-transmission bolts.
  7. Remove the 17 bolts and the oil pan.
  8. Remove and discard the oil pan rear seal.
To install:

WARNING
Do not use metal scrapers, wire brushes, power abrasive discs or other abrasive means to clean the sealing surfaces. These tools cause scratches and gouges which make leak paths. Use silicone gasket remover and a plastic scraping tool to remove all traces of old sealant. Follow the directions on the packaging.
  1. Clean the gasket mating surfaces using silicone gasket remover, a plastic scraping tool and metal surface prep. Follow the directions on the packaging.
    NOTE
    If the oil pan is not secured within 4 minutes, the sealant must be removed and the sealing areas cleaned. To clean the sealing area, use silicone gasket remover and metal surface prep. Follow the directions on the packaging. Failure to follow this procedure can cause future oil leakage.
  2. Apply silicone gasket and sealant to the oil pan sealing areas shown and install the oil pan rear seal.
  3. Apply silicone gasket and sealant to the rear main bearing cap.
  4. Install the oil pan rear seal.
  5. Apply a bead of silicone gasket and sealant to the oil pan mating surface.
  6. Position the oil pan and install the bolts. Tighten the bolts in the sequence shown. Tighten to 10 Nm (89 inch lbs.).
  7. Install the 3 oil pan-to-transmission bolts. Tighten to 34 Nm (25 ft. lbs).
  8. Install the starter.
  9. Position the crossmember and install the 4 bolts. Tighten to 90 Nm (66 ft. lbs.).

05 malibu leaking oil from rear of engine


This may be from excessive pressure in the sump from blow-by from the compression process . It is from a blocked PCV valve that is not equalising that pressure. I have also known oil leaks to happen because the rear main bearing cap is leaking oil past the join around the bolts (loose) or no sealing compound used in assembling the rear main bearing.. I would look at the PCV valve as it is the cheapest test first.. Check that the oil is not coming from the front gear box seal or torque converter seal.

Oil leak on driveway coming from front of engine


Dear Sir,
Here is the oil leaking Problem Identifying Technique

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket are common.

  • The intake manifold plenum gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption/burning and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.
  • External oil leaks from valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets (front or rear), and the rear crankshaft (rear main) seal area are common. The rear main seal is an unlikely source. Normally, the bearing cap mating surfaces (as well as the sealing surface between the oil pan and bearing cap) are the source for the leaks.
  • Engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from theintake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.
  • If the oil filter casing shows signs of distortion from excessive oil pressure, theoil pump should be replaced.
  • Often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
  • Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

    Oil leaking from toyota camry 1992, 1994 model


    You don't say what engine it has. The 4-cyl was a better than the V6 for oil leaks.

    The V6 had oil leaks from

    -rear bank cam cover gasket

    -distributor o-ring seal

    -oil filter bracket o-ring seal

    -crankshaft nose oil seal (less common)

    -rear main bearing oil seal (expensive, just leave it)

    The 4 cyl leaked oil from

    -distributor o-ring seal

    -camshaft cover gasket

    -rear main bearing seal (expensive, leave it)

    1992 Ford Crown Victoria Oil Pan is leaking. Is this a major problem to replace? Fred


    It is recommended that you lift out the engine before attempting to replace the oil pan. Once the engine is lifted you can remove the bolts, remove the pan, clean all the old gasket material.
    Installation: Remove the rear main bearing cap oil seal Remove the timing cover oil seal Clean all the mating surfaces and seal grooves Install new oil pan front cover seals Install a new rear main bearing cap oil seal Install new oil pan side gaskets on the block Make sure the tabs of the front and rear seal fit properly as these are critical spots Attach the oil pan to the engine block and install the retaining bolts

    What parts will I need when changing a flex plate?


    While you have the transmission removed be sure to replace the rear main bearing seal.On a1982 you will have to remove the oil pan to replace the seal,It has a two piece seal.After removal of the oil pan carefully remove the back main bearing cap,you will have to use a straight pick to roll the top seal out of the block.Lubricate the deal with oil before you install it.Be sure to get a new oil pan gasket with your other parts.Make sure you torque your main bearing cap to manufacturer's specifications.

    Oil Leak


    i would have to say the oil pan gasket. that is the one that I have replaced more often. it is ever usual for the rear main seal to go out but not impossible. but i would have to say oil pan gasket.
    hope this helps and if you need anything else let me know. happy holidays.
