Changing a oil pan for a 95 grand marquis


Just loosen oil plug and drain...take out pan bolts... drop down...make sure alt gasket material is off of both pan and bottom of motor. Lay new gasket on oil pan...possibly use gasket sealer to keep gasket in place...a very thin layer on oil pan then put gasket on. Let dry for a bit then bolt back up...make sure oil plug is back in then refill....cheers!

Oil filter


You'll need an oil filter wrench, collection pan, and socket set for starters. A lift and jack stands are advisable for safety reasons. Any auto store in your area can look up your vehicles specific oil filter and specific oil weight needed. Some even tell you your cars oil capacity. Once you've got the materials and the car is raised start by loosening the oil pan bolt but not removing it. Once you can spin it wit your finger line up the oil pan and remove the bolt with your fingers keeping in mind there is usually a washer you'll need to remove also(if it ends up in the pan of oil a magnet will easily retrieve it. Once drained remove the old filter and replace with new one. Replace the washer and bolt. Under the good you'll find your oil reservoirs cap. Remove it and either using a funnel or simply cutting an empty bottle in half using the cap end without cap to act as a funnel(I've even used an oil quart container I just bought storing the contents in a large cup, bowl, or other disposable container. Once you think you've got enough oil in the car run it for 5 minutes to circulate the new oil. Turn engine off and check the oil level using the dipstick. Adding more oil is easier than removing but if your level is too high you risk blowing seals so do not ignore this. Dispose of oil properly, most auto shops take used oil for free.

How to change oil pan on 2001 x5 bmw 3.0


remove the reinforcement plate under the engine. 4 x 17mm nuts. You will need to hold the back side of each bolt with a box end wrench or it will just spin. Then you will see the oil pan. Remove the 10mm nuts and the pan will come off. . (Drain the oil first!). When you replace the reinforcement plate, use new bolts. They are one-time use. (Really).

Sump leaking


-Drain the engine oil through the drain bolt located under the oil pan (sump).
-Preserve the used oil in a sealed canister to be disposed off later.
-Remove the oil pan bolts from all around and keep them in a tray.
-Oil pan is attached with a silicone sealant so it need a little practice to be separated from the cylinder block assembly. To remove it, tap it with a rubber, wooden or plastic hammer. If it is too hard to remove insert a thin wide chisel slowly from different places turn by turn but not damaging any of the surfaces.
-Finally insert a slightly thicker and strong wide chisel from the front side and force it slowly downward.
- Take out the oil pan carefully.
- Clean and wash it thoroughly with detergent and let it dry.
- Clean the lower surface of the cylinder block.
- Apply 3 to 4 mm thick layer of silicone sealant RTV-Grey to the oil pan mating surface.
- Hold the oil pan near the cylinder face not touching the cylinder face and center the pan by just tightening a few turns of oil pan bolt. Put another bolt on the opposite side. Screw in another bolt to the side of the pan and one more bolt to opposite the third bolt. Then screw in all the remaining bolts slightly.
- Seat in all the bolts and tight the bolts in many attempts.
- Make sure the silicone sealant flows out equally from all around the all pan.
- Wait about 1 hour to let the sealant dry.
- Install new oil filter.
- Pour new recommended engine oil and bring it to the upper level.
- Start the engine for ten seconds, switch it off and check the oil level again.
- The job is complete now.

Remove oil pan


Find your oil pan's drain plug -- it just looks like a bolt from the outside. Use this to drain the oil from your vehicle first (keeps you from getting covered in oil later). Once the oil has drained out (usually it will still be dripping, but that's OK) put the plug back in so you won't get dripped on. Then find all of the bolts around the pan that you just drained -- there should be several around the top of the oil pan connecting it to the engine. Once you have removed all of these bolts, the oil pan should come off relatively easily -- most times it gets a little stuck to the oil pan seal, so you might have to pull on it a little, or if it's really stuck, you might have to pry it off (be careful not to damage the oil pan when doing this). If you notice that the oil pan is REALLY stuck on there, make sure you got ALL of the bolts (if you miss one the pan will not move).
Once the oil pan is off the car, and you have done what you need to do, clean the surfaces where the oil pan will connect back to the car -- making certain that the old gasket has been totally removed (leaving debris from the old oil pan seal will keep the new seal from functioning correctly. When you go to put the pan back on the car, make sure you have the oil pan seal set perfectly where it is supposed to go, then hand tighten the bolts back where they should be. Don't tighten all of the bolts down quite yet.
Check to make sure that the oil pan seal has not moved out of place, then tighten one bolt, but not ALL the way tight yet. Once you have one bold mostly tightened with your wrench, start tightening the bolt on the opposite side of the pan from the first one you just tightened -- and make this one about as tight as the first one. Next, double check that the seal has not moved, and then tighten a bolt on a 90 degree angle from your first two. Next, do the bolt opposite the third. Work on one bolt at a time, making sure that you don't tighten two bolts next to each other in a row. This will help you make sure you do not move or distort your oil pan seal as you are replacing the oil pan. I don't know the exact number of bolts, but if you follow the pattern from the diagram below as much as you can, you should not have too many problems. Once all of the bolts have been wrench tightened in this order (or similar depending on how many bolts there are, and their placement) go around the pan one more time, making sure that all of the bolts are nice and snug and you should be just about done -- don't forget to put more oil in the car before you turn it on :-)
