There is no easy way, this job is real pain even at the shop on a hoist , raise the car as high as poss and support on 4 jack stands, then u must disconnect the exhaust system (drain oil of course) and remove the header pipes, remove the center bolt in the motor mounts from both sides, with a engine hoist (hood removed) raise the engine off the mounts as high as u can, then undo the oil pan and reach inside and remove the oil pick up tube or the pan will not come off, drop and and reverse to put back together..

Pan gaskets can be a p[ain in the **** to replace especially if the replacement gasket has a fold in it...you need to have it lay down flat , make sure you scrape the old gasket fully off the pan lip, spray it down with brake cleaner when done cleaning,meke sure you have drained the oil before anything is attempted, apply the 3M Yellow Contact cement in the large tube to the pan then install the new gasket, if you can lay the pan upside down on a clean flat surface allowing the new gasket to set up while the glue dries holding it in place takes about 1/2 - 1 hour.
If you cant pull off the pan for various reasons and want to "TRY" a quickie repair.... loosen up the pan let it drop down enough to spray the leaking area with brake cleaner( be sure the area is sprayed and cleaned real good) then squeeze the gasket forming silicone into the affected area, bol;t back up and let sit for at least a 1/2 day before putting it back into service recheck after silicone cures and hopefully the pan is sealed and not leaking, saving a lot of time and money in doing so, if it doesn't work then the pan must be removed as stated above.
Hope this Helps!!

Manual how to replace transmision oil


The easiest way to do it would be loosen the transmission oil pan bolts on one side of the pan and work your way around each side of the pan working from one corner. As you work your way around fluid will start to leak from the initial corner. Let the fluid leak out until it is down to the level of the pan. Hold the pan up and finish removing the remaining bolts and then dump remaining fluid still in the pan. Change the fluid filter while you have the pan off and clean the pan and gasket surface and re-install the pan using a new gasket. Then fill with clean fluid and you are good to go.

How to fix a front leaky oil seal in a 1995 Toyota Camry LE


Three seals to check. easiest is the valve cover seal. Number and remove the 4 wires going into your spark plugs. remove 4 nuts holding the cover and replace seal.
Next easiest is the distributor O-ring. Remove air filter assembly remove the distributor cap, then the distributor. With the valve cover still off, loosen the 2 bolts that clamp the distributor down. Remove the 2 terminal leads going into the distributor (4 wire terminal/2 wire terminal) Mark the case of the distributor and the case of the head with one line so you can line it back up on reinstallation. remove the 3 bolts holding the distributor down. Replace O-ring. replace distributor, align, tighten the 2 bolts, then tighten the 3 bolts. replace terminal wiring and cap. replace air filter assembly. Replace valve cover with new gasket. Place spark plug wires back into their proper places. The last one is the oil pan gasket. Drain all oil and remove all blots holding the pan. drop the pan and replace the gasket. Put it all back into place. Do not over tighten the pan bolts as this will cause the gasket to deform, making it leak again.

How do i remove the oil pan


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION - Oil Pan

CAUTION The EPA warns that prolonged contact with used engine oil may cause a number of skin disorders, including cancer! You should make every effort to minimize your exposure to used engine oil. Protective gloves should be worn when changing the oil. Wash your hands and any other exposed skin areas as soon as possible after exposure to used engine oil. Soap and water, or waterless hand cleaner should be used. (except 2.5 Premier engine)

Fig. Fig. 1: Exploded view of the lubrication system for all 2.2L and 2.5L except Premier engines

Fig. Fig. 7: Apply sealant to the ends of the new oil pan end seals at the junction of the cylinder block pan rail gasket-1988-95 2.2L and 2.5L except Premier engines

db01a06.jpg

Fig. 8: Clean the gasket mating surface of the oil pan of all old gasket material, dirt, grease or other grime-2.6L engine
  1. Apply the parking brake, block the rear wheels, then raise and safely support the front of the vehicle on jackstands.
  2. Drain the engine oil. This would also be a good time to change the oil filter.
  3. Remove the engine-to-transaxle struts, if so equipped. These struts prohibit access to the oil pan mounting bolts.
  4. Remove the torque converter or clutch inspection cover.
  5. Support the oil pan and remove the mounting bolts.
  6. Lower the pan and remove the old gasket, if so equipped.
To install:
  1. Clean all gasket surfaces thoroughly.
  2. For 2.6L engines, position a new gasket on the oil pan using a sealer to hold it in place.
1981-87 2.2 and 2.5 Liter engine uses a liquid form-in-place type gasket. Chrysler Part Number 4205918, or equivalent RTV gasket material must be used.
  1. For 1981-87 2.2 and 2.5L engines, install new end seals and apply the form-in-place gasket sealant. The RTV gasket material should be applied in a continuous bead approximately 1 / 8 in. (3mm) in diameter. All mounting holes must be circled. Uncured RTV may be removed with a rag. The oil pan should be tightened in place while the RTV is still wet to the touch (within 10 minutes). The usage of a locating dowel is recommended during assembly to prevent smearing of the material off location. Make sure to apply sealer where the end seals meet the block.
1988-95 2.2L and 2.5L engines utilize end seals and side gaskets, not liquid gasket as with 1981-87 models.
  1. On 1988-95 2.2L and 2.5L engines, install new end seals and side gaskets. Apply RTV sealant to the parting lines between the end and side seals on these engines. If necessary, use a little grease or RTV sealant to hold the side seals in place.
  2. Tighten the pan bolts in a crisscross fashion, starting from the center of the oil pan and working toward the ends, to the following torque values:
    2.6L engine-53-61 inch lbs. (5.9-6.8 Nm) 1981-87 2.2L and 2.5L engines-16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm) 1988-95 2.2L and 2.5L engines-M8 bolts, 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm); M6 bolt, 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm)
  3. Allow the oil pan to sit for 15 minutes to ensure that the RTV sealant has completely set.
  4. Install the oil drain plug and a new oil filter, if equipped, then lower the vehicle.
  5. Refill the engine with oil
  6. Start the engine and check for oil leaks.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

I have antifreeze in oil pan & cylinder in my 1989 Lincoln Towncar


Hi:
The most likely cause of this is a leaking head gasket or intake gasket. Depending on how much cash you want to put into this car, the best plan of repair is to replace both head gaskets, and when you do this, the intake gaskets get changed as well. You can have the heads cleaned and checked while they are off the car.

How do I replace the oil pan gasket on my 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport 3.3L Also - I need new front struts, are these easy to replace as a DIY?


If you have a coil compressor or take the struts to a shop that has one. The oil pan gasket shouldn't be an issue.

Ford econoline 350 87 i need to change


the only difficult part is catching all the fluid, i would recommend doing the filter while your at it it is extremly easy, if you can change your oil you can do a filter and a gasket,
one recomendation though put the bolts through the holes in the pan and through and the gasket before you put the pan on the gasket will hold the bolts in place and you wont have to try and line up the rubber gasket to the holes lying upside down under your van

Oil pan gasket


Well, the F2 means it is a 1992 model. If you have a 2.3L Mustang engine. The vin should be M. it is a 2.3L dual plug igintion(means it has 2 coills,No distributor).If you have a 87 to 89. You have a VIN A engine which is a lil different.

If you have a vin A. According to partsamerica.com(advanceautoparts.com) 1986-1990 oil pan gasket fits. If you have a 92. according to what I just looked up. It says that it will fit. If look up replacement parts. got to gaskets and look for see what vehicles it fits. Sometimes It will tell you all the vehicle that particular gasket will fit..
