How do you change a gasket on the oil pan I have a 99 Chevy Cavalier


Drain the oil and remove the screws/bolts that hold the pan into place.

Then use a flat-blade screwdriver to gently prise the pan free.

Clean both mating surfaces of pan and block - remove all traces of the old gasket.

Smear some sealant compound on the oil pan - this will hold the new gasket in place. Put the new gasket onto the oil pan and align the bolt holes. Lift the pan into place and tighten the bolts.

The photo below is a generic image of oil pan with gasket.

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.

A good temp fix on a rusted oil pan is JB weld make sure no oil is on pan clean with towel and rubbing alchol .you may have to drain oil first. if it is rusted badly you may have to use a wire brush on a drill to clean the area to patch. if patched properly it may last for years.

How do i remove oil pan gasket


Let the oil out of the pan. If it's going to be reused then put it in a clean container. Remove all the bolts that hold the pan onto the engine. If it doesn't come loose after the last bolt is removed give it a light tap with a rubber mallet. Using a screw driver to pry it off will only bend the pan and scar the engine block. Don't use one. If the gasket tears when removing the pan , use a putty knife to scrape ALL the old gasket material on both the pan and the engine. Be careful not to gouge the aluminum surface or the new gasket will never seal. Use a gasket adhesive and apply it to one side only of the new gasket. Place the gasket on the pan . Use some pan bolts to line up the holes in the gasket with the pan and let the adhesive dry a while. Now carefully put the pan up against the engine and put each pan bolt in by hand. Do not tighten any of them until all of them are installed. Only then tighten them all. Put back the oil and you're done.

How to replace oil pan in 2006 suzuki xl-7


Depends on ease of access. Many oil pans can be dropped without removing the engine. You will have to put car up on ramps and chock the wheels. Set emergency brakes and make sure car is in Park. I know, sounds like overkill, but better to much safety than one deadly accident. Drain your oil pan just like you would to do an oil change. Locate your oil pan bolts and carefully remove them. This should allow the pan to drop free for the gasket to be replaced. The leak may be due to loosened or lost bolts and not a bad gasket. You might try tightening them first and replacing any lost ones. Be sure not to over-tighten or could could bend the pan and that's a whole new bucket of problems. If you do replace the gasket, clean both surfaces, put new gasket on pan with a THIN bead of gasket sealant, put a THIN smear on top of the gasket and put back onto engine block. Tighten bolts to specified torque. May as well put on a new oil filter. No sense keeping cruddy oil filter with new oil. PUT OIL IN ENGINE. Remove from ramp and let run a bit, shut off for 5 minutes and recheck oil level. Be forewarned, this is a really dirty, crungy job. Wear clothes you're not emotionally attached to. Have hot water and dish soap at the ready to clean-up. No body wants to grab a door knob that's got yucky motor oil on it. And jump straight to the shower.

How do I replace the oil pan gasket on a 2001 GMC Yukon XL?


Changing the oil pan gasket on a GMC Yukon XL is realtively simple, but does require removal of the exhaust pipe. You will need a new oil pan gasket and a new exhaust pipe flange gasket.
Put the car on ramps or jacks to access the undercarriage.
Remove the exhaust pipe by removing the 3 nuts holding the exhaust pipe flange to the exhaust manifold. These nuts often rust and prior application of penetrating oil may be required to remove them without damage. Once the pipe is unbolted, work the exhaust system loose from the hanging brackets. In most cases the entire system does not have to be removed since there is enough room to remove the pan with only the front hangers removed.
Drain the oil from the engine
Remove the 10 mm bolts holding the pan to the block.
Remove the old gasket material and scrape any remaining gasket from the block and pan.
Install the new gasket. Forma-Gasket or a similar product may be used in small quantities to "glue" the new gasket in place and prevent shifting while the pan is reattached to the block.
Reinsall the 10 mm bolts in a cross pattern to ensure the gasket is compressed evenly. Do not overtighten the bolts.
Replace the pipe to flange gasket between the exhaust pipe and the exhaust manifold with a new part.
Reattach the exhuast pipe to the hangers.
Install the 3 bolts connecting the pipe flange to the exhaust manifold.
Fill the engine with oil.

Oil Pan Gasket Replacement - How to - GMC Yukon 2000


No big job Really. Just locate your Drain Plug for the Oil. Thepan is right there, Remove the Bolts around the Pan and Remove. You will lose all of your oil so, Have something there to catch it all. Clean it all around the Edges of the Block where the Pan mounts with Degreaser and Make sure that you Scrape the Old Gasket off of Both the Block and the Pan. Run a Thin Bead of Blue ATV Silicone around the Pan Edge, Lay the Gasket on top of this Silicone. Put another Thin line on top of the Gasket and Reinstall. This Silicone is High Temp Silicone and will Seal Very Well. Make sure to put oil Back in the Motor! Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!
