Those lines are coming from the transmission cooler, some cooler are by them self and some go into the side of the radiator, as long as they fit good, it does not matter which way they go on, if the lines have screw on fitting at the ends, some time one will be bigger then the other, if there the same, don't matter which way, just going to cooler.Hope this was very helpful.

How to replace oil pan


5.2 liter V8 engine?

Remove the four front skid-plate bolts holding the front skid plate, using a ratchet and socket. Remove the skid plate.

Pull the plastic splash shield away from the vehicle, loosening the retaining clips. Remove the splash shield.


  • Place an oil drain container under the oil pan. Loosen the drain fitting with a wrench until oil drains from the pan. When oil is done draining, tighten the drain fitting.

  • Disconnect the electrical connections running to the starter motor. Remove the starter motor mounting bolts with a ratchet and socket, then remove the starter motor.
  • Remove the oxygen sensor socket from the exhaust pipe, using a wrench.
  • Remove the exhaust manifold bolts where the exhaust meets the manifold on both sides, using a ratchet and socket
  • Place an jack under the transmission to support it. Remove the pressure on the transmission crossmember.

  • Remove the bolts that hold the transmission crossmember in place, using a ratchet and socket. Then remove the crossmember. Place a jack stand under the transmission to keep the transmission from falling off the jack if hit. Once removed, the exhaust will hang down, allowing enough room to remove the oil pan.
  • Disconnect the oil level sensor and the nut retaining the transmission cooling lines, using a wrench.
  • Remove the oil pan bolts with a ratchet and socket, then remove the oil pan and gasket.
  • Clean the mounting surfaces of the new oil pan and engine block. Make sure what ever you use to clean the surfaces dosn't gouge the metal.
  • Place a coat of RTV (gasket) sealer on the engine block where the pan will meet the rear main cap.
  • Place the new gasket on the pan and push the new oil pan into place. Finger tighten the oil pan mounting bolts to hold it in place. Tighten the bolts with a torque wrench to 18 ft-lbs. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE BOLTS! Doing so will cause the gasket to deform and create leaks!

  • Connect the oil level sensor and the nut retaining the transmission cooling lines, using a wrench.
  • Place the exhaust back into position and replace the transmission crossmember bolts and crossmember with a ratchet and socket.
  • Remove the jack supporting the transmission.
  • Connect the exhaust back to both sides of the manifold, tightening the bolts with a torque wrench to 20 ft-lbs.
  • Attach the oxygen sensor socket to the exhaust pipe with a wrench.

  • Replace the starter motor by installing the starter motor mounting bolts with a ratchet and socket. Connect the electrical connections to the starter motor that were disconnected during removal.
  • Push the retaining clips on the plastic splash shield into the appropriate retaining clip holes.
  • Replace the front skid plate by replacing the four front skid plate bolts with a ratchet and socket.
  • Fill the engine with 5 quarts of oil. Make sure to check the level on the dipstick to find the exact level when filling.

    Where is the oil pan drain plug on a 2005 sunfire


    A 2003-05 Sunfire most likely has the Ecotec 2.2 motor. The filter is a cartridge element type which is located on the forward side of the engine on the drivers side; (below and slightly left of the power steering reservoir).

    The oil filter is located under (inside) a black cover about 3-4 inches around and has a large hex head nut molded on top of it, to fit a socket on it. When replacing the oil filter element, press the tipped O-ring side of the filter down into the filter cavity until it locks in place. Then place the cover on top and tighten it.

    The cover will automatically lock onto the top section of the oil element as it is being tightened. The drain plug is pretty standard and on the oil pan. However, most people are accustomed to a metal oil pan, and when viewing the Ecotec motor they confuse the metal TRANSMISSION pan as the motor oil pan.

    The motor oil pan is actually aluminum, and looks like a continuation of the upper motor. For that reason, you don't "see" an oil pan. Knowing this fact, the oil drain plug is now easy to locate. Look at the far passenger side of the metal transmission oil pan. Now look at the very front of that section of the transmission oil pan and follow that ''line of sight'' until you reach the bottom of the aluminum motor (''oil pan''). The oil drain plug is right there, with it's head facing towards the transmission oil pan.

    The drain plug (on a 2005 Sunfire) requires a 15mm wrench/socket; and has a built in rubber seal, which should be lubricated with oil before tightening.

    How can I remove oil pan on 1991 toyota pickup 2wd 2.4 L


    There are two ways to get the clearance required to remove the oil pan.
    Start by draining the oil pan, after all the oil is out remove the 16 bolts and two nuts holding the oil pan on. You can use a oil pan seal cutter to break the seal or if you don't have one just use a putty knife (it okay to scratch the pan a little but do not bend the flange!) There are two strut bars under the engine that need to come out. One is a square tube about a 1.5 feet long and the other is a typical tubular strut bar, remove both of them.

    Once the oil pan is loose the easiest way to get it out is to lift the engine about 2-3 inches. Start by hooking up an engine lift to the front lift point on the engine. You will be pivoting the engine on the transmission mount so you only want to lift at the front of the engine. On the passenger side undo the two bolts on the sides of the motor mount (should be 14mm) and on the driver side undo the nut in the center of the mount (should be 17mm). Now lift the engine 2-3 inches and the oil pan should be able to slide out. Unfortunately the oil pan takes up the entire front part of the engine so there is no room to use a jack if you dont have a car lift.

    If you dont have access to an engine lift the you will have to remove the steering rack from below the engine. There are three ball joints that will need to be separated so you will need a pickle fork or some tough screw drivers to pry them apart. Undo the two castle nuts and ball joints on the passenger side and the one on the driver side and undo the big bolt from the pinion arm. You should be able to remove the steering rack now and the oil pan should be able to just come straight down.

    Bad oil leak around oil pan, does somebody have an engine diagram for the Dodge 3.0 in this Grand Caravan?


    This is what I found on my 1998 with a 3.0 motor Most likely you have a rusted pan with a hole on the passenger side of pan, clean the oil pan real good and inspect it real good and check for small leaks,
    Also the transmission pan is also known to rust through on the left side top and bottom, Salt and brime plays heck on all pans and brake lines
