SOURCE: timing chain tensioner worn; plastic parts are in eng oil pan

No, should have enough room to slide it out ,if not disconnect the engine mounts and jack up or lift up the engine just enough to slide the pan.

Are you referring to the oil filter? It is located under the engine on the drivers side just in front of the flywheel cover on the transmission. The drain plug is a 15mm bolt.

I have a 97 Astro van all wheel drive. I'm trying to get the oil pan off because I replaced the timing chain. All the bolts are out but it seems to be stuck on the passenger side I assume its a dowel pin...


although the transmission pan is easily removable in my 05 Dakota it is almost impossible to remove a oil pan without putting it on a lift assuming it is on a lift I would suggest taking out the filter housing

Oil pan wont drop all bolts are out 2000 astro van


You will have to remove the engine mount bolts, there are two long ones, one on each side.Then you will have to raise the engine, probably to the point that it starts raising the van. Then the pan should come out. sometimes they need alittle help. Good luck

Code Reader reads Shifter Solenoid Stuck or Off


The Shift solenoids are located in the transmission oil pan. I would recommend replacing both shift solenoids while you're in there. Also replace the filter and pan gasket. The shift solenoids are located towards the rear of the valvebody and will be identical to each other. They are held in place by a retaining clip which is easily removed with a small screwdriver or similar tool. Care must be taken as parts may fly out of the bore when the solenoids are removed. Hope this helps.
