Question about 1993 Ford Mustang

Oil pan gasket

Came up with what I was told was a 1992 2.3 liter for my aging 88 LX. First thing I start doing is put new pan gasket on the 2.3. Went to local supply got the gasket ripped the pan off scraped and cleaned mating surfaces. started putting the new gasket in the groove and noticed that the gasket did not even fill the groove to the top let alone extend above to actually seal with. the casting # on the pan start with F2**-*****. Whats going on do I have a 93 motor or is the supply house just selling something work or not?

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 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..

How do I change the oil pan gasket?

Whether it's an engine oil pan (called the 'sump'' in the UK) or a transmission oil pan the principle is the same on all vehicles.
1. Drain the oil

2. Remove the bolts holding the sump/pan in place:

change-oil-pan-gasket-mcgwfbeeztshkxy1nyom2hsg-4-3.jpg change-oil-pan-gasket-mcgwfbeeztshkxy1nyom2hsg-4-6.jpgNew gasket held in place with sealant
Use a blunt screwdriver -if needed - and prise the oil pan free. remove all traces of the old gasket from the mating surfaces.

Use a smear of sealant to hold the new gasket in the correct position on the pan - this will hold it in place when you refit the pan.

Push the pan into position and put in a front bolt finger-tight. Then put in a rear bolt finger-tight.

Putting in the bolts finger-tight allows you to gently 'move' the pan if needed to put the bolts in one at a time.

When all bolts are in, tighten them with a wrench/socket. Then check them all again for tightness.

It isn't actually a big job .. more 'messy' because of the oil.

It looks like that the cause of your leaking pan gasket is excessive blow-by gases pressure due to worn out piston rings. The low oil level is a telltale sign the you are consuming (burning) oil because of this problem.
I recommend that you have a ring and if possible also bearing job to your engine. Merely replacing the torn out gasket will just temporary solve your leak problem. Since you will still burn oil, your emission problem will not be solved.

Replace oil pan gasket on 92 Ranger with 2.9 Liter

Do not cut off those tabs! They are critical to prevent leaks there. They WILL fit as intended. It may even help to add a very small amount of silicone there to help prevent leaks. Work carefully, and use silicone in all the recommended spots. Start with very clean surfaces, and torque the pan down evenly from center outward to the ends at the recommended torque. You'll be very glad you don't have to pull it off and re-do it, speaking from personal experience.

How to replace oil pan gasket on 05 Kia Sportage LX 2.7L?

Yes you can do the job at home but the engine must be lifted off the engine mounts to have enough room to access and remove the oil pan, a very difficult job on the ground, fairly easy on a car lift. The job at home is about a 3-4 hour job if you are an experienced car person and have the right tools, you will need a good 2-21/2 ton hydraulic floor jack (not the cheap little ones Autozone sells) and jack stands as well as a wooden block to raise the engine up so you won't damage the oil pan..

My 1992 jimmy has a 4.3 liter v6 and it smokes like crazy . but anyway i found a 1989 on line and i would like to know if the complete engine will fit without any changes

In 1992 there were 2 different 4.3L engines. Check the 8th digit in your VIN. If it is a "W" the 1989 engine will not work. if it is a "Z" then it will work. I would recommend however, to purchase an engine overhaul gasket set (All engine gaskets - sometimes serviced in 2 different sets) and transfer all parts from one engine to the other including oil pan, intake manifold, exhaust manifolds, etc. Transfer everything but the block and the heads because some of the connections,sensors, etc. may not be compatible. While you're doing all that, you may as well put the new head gaskets on the replacement engine just so you can sleep knowing that they are new and not just about ready to blow on you. If you do it this way, you can save yourself a lot of frustration.

I need to put on a oil pan gasket

Make sure it is the oil pan gasket, it is rare they leak, more likely the oil is comming from up top and drainning down on to the pan (since it is lowest point on the engine), have the engine cleaned of oil and then decide where the oil is comming from, if you find it is just a small leak don't worry about it.
