SOURCE: Leaking oil pan gasket

Check the pan to make sure it is not cracked or warped. Also notice where most of the leak is coming from. When you took off the old gasket, did you scrape off all of the old material? If you used a screwdriver to do that, you may have nicked the metal and created a path for oil to leak. If you didn't scrape off the old material and any RTV sealant, you will want to, using a plastic scraper. There are sprays that dissolve this material too if it is too hard to scrape off.

If that area is nicked badly and you haven't used RTV sealant, you may want to put a small amount all over the area that the gasket will cover, not just the nicked area but the whole area that the pan gasket will cover- it doesn't take much and if you smear too much on, it will just ooze out and make things messy - just a fine coating will do.

As you tighten up the bolts, make sure you tighten in an alternating pattern as they begin to contact the gasket and get tight so a bolt on one side get fastened down as often as one on the other side gets fastened to avoid warping the pan.

Hope this helps.

STEP BY STEP on...How to change a oil pan gasket on a 2001 Cadillac Deville.

the trans has to come out first, then all other bolts. there is no real pan, there is an upper and lower housing, and seals. I would not attempt myself, only an experienced mechanic that's familiar with a Northstar engine. you don't want to get done and have a oil leak, what is what you have now.

Why is my car leaking oil its a 1995 cadillac deville sedan with 108k on it

well, oil seals get old and an engine is still considered to be good, according to what I have read on the Internet, if it consumes less than 1 quart per 1000 miles.And, one should change the oil every 3,000 mi. according to most reputable oil change garages.

Granted if it's leaking any oil, that is not ideal.

Rubber seals and gaskets can get oil soaked and spongy or tightness of bolts that hold gaskets on can be too loose (but I wouldn't overtighten bolts as they only go in so far)..

How do I change the oil gasket??

Are you talking about the oil pan gasket, valve train cover gasket? Id so on either one you must remove the old gasket an replace it. You can try tightening the bolts some to see if that stops the leak, but if not, the gasket should be replaced.
