    will not work transmission still in the way of one bolt. cant drop the oil pan

  • thebairs Nov 09, 2010

    will NOT work. transfer case is in the way cant get to the last bolt..inspections plate removed already

  • thebairs Nov 09, 2010

    2003 x type, all wheel drive 2.5 engine

  • thebairs Nov 09, 2010

    does the rear axle, drive shaft and right side axle have to be removed?

  • thebairs Nov 09, 2010

    the bolt in the far left corner is the problem..cant get to it ..transfer case in the way there is no clearance.

  • thebairs Nov 09, 2010

    what is a z shaped ring spanner..can u show me what it looks like. that bolt is kinda like under the transfer case. we may try to take transfer case off but that is another bunch of problems.

  • thebairs Nov 09, 2010

    dont think there is enough room to get in there.

  • thebairs Nov 09, 2010

    if i can get the bolt loose there isnt much clearance to get it the whole way out. dont see how the pan will come down either. there is a bracket to that wraps up around the motor. it crazy how packed in there it is.

  • thebairs Nov 10, 2010

    i was at a site where you pay for info. they cant answer my questions either. went to jaguar dealership for answers...very expensive to have them do it. seems to be the only answer that is not so risky.

  • thebairs Nov 10, 2010

    tried didnt work. crazy tight. jaguar dealership may have to do the job. very expensive...may live with the leak. not sure what to do.

  • thebairs Nov 11, 2010

    unfortunately its not that easy before the transfer case can be removed axels and many other motors parts need to be taken off..you cant just remove the transfer case as your first step. Thanks for tryin..

  • thebairs Nov 15, 2010

    no its a 2.5 but pretty close. still need to remove transfer case to get to oil pan gasket.

  • thebairs Nov 15, 2010

    you cant just remove the transfer case. its not that easy a lot of other parts have to come out before you get to that step...We were hopin to just drop the pan change the gasket and put it back...again, not that easy..you pretty much need to take the motor apart completely before that..We are putting it back together for now....thanks for the help but we give up!!! NO EASY ANSWER TO THIS ONE!!!

Hi!!
2003 Jaguar X Type, AWD, 2.5L Engine Unfortunately on this vehicle, you have to follow a particular order and remove a couple of accessories in order to get the oil pan removed. It may take a little more time and effort but it will make the job easier than taking shortcuts.
Removal of the Oil Pan Gasket :

  1. Remove the transfer case.
  2. Drain the engine oil.
  3. Remove the accessory drive belt.
  4. Remove the A/C compressor lower retaining bolts. Loosen the A/C compressor upper retaining bolts, and swing it out of the way.
  5. Remove the lower access cover.
  6. Remove the oil pan-to-transmission retaining bolts.
  7. Remove the oil pan.
  8. Remove and discard the gasket.
  9. Clean and inspect the oil pan and the cylinder block sealing surfaces.

NOTE 1 The oil pan retaining bolts numbered 1 and 2 are longer than the retaining bolts numbered 3 through 15. 2003 jaguar x type. - 1kbron_11.gif


NOTE 2 Tighten the oil pan bolts within six minutes of applying sealer.

To install:
  1. Apply a 10 mm diameter dot of silicone sealant WSE-M4G323-A6, or equivalent, meeting Jaguar specification to the engine front cover to the cylinder block mating joints.
  2. Use a new oil pan gasket. Tighten the bolts, in the sequence shown, to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  3. Loosely install the oil pan to transmission housing bolts.
  4. Tighten the pan-to-transmission bolts to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  5. Tighten the access cover bolt to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  6. Tighten the compressor bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  7. Refill the engine with oil.
  8. Install the transfer case.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi,
You need to remove the inspection plate which is in the rear half and it should allow you too remove all the bolts.
Let me know if you need more information.
Thanks

    could you give me the exact model and engine size please.

  • Jason Maurirere
    Jason Maurirere Nov 09, 2010

    These are all the bolts that need to be removed.







    This is for a 4WD model Jaguar.

  • Jason Maurirere
    Jason Maurirere Nov 09, 2010

    ok, is there a gap between the head of the bolt and the transfer case housing.
    If there is then you will need to get a Z shaped ring spanner to get in there and remove the bolt.
    If you get the bolt undone and it will not screw all the way out, then unfortunately you will need to remove the transfer case, however it doesn't say in the manual that this needs to be done for this model.

  • Jason Maurirere
    Jason Maurirere Nov 09, 2010

    The Z spanner is just as it say's it is shaped like the letter Z. You can get them from all Auto-parts shops and Tool places.
    I really don't think you have to remove the transfer case to get the sump off, if you got enough room and the right tool you should be able to remove this with out all that hassle.

You should be able to get it with someone helping you by putting a pry bar and slightly moving the transmission of what seems to be in the way. I've had to do it this way when the body brace is in the way.

Hi.i have a 2003 Jaguar x-type.my problem is that when i changed my transmission oil,now all the oil leaks from the bottom.i don't know from where and why.there is a problem with the pressure ,and now all...


It sounds like you have the seal crimped which is a common issue. Pull and clean the old seal off both the pan and the transmission. Apply a thin steady bead of Form-A-Gasket to the pan and the transmission where the seal makes contact and then carefully replace the pan with the seal in place and tighten all the bolts to 20 lbs torque. Then to 30 lbs torque, be careful not to strip any bolts by over tightening. Let this setup for at least 30 minutes. When you put the bolts back in place, start with one in the center of the pan at 12 o'clock, then 6 o'clock, then 3 then 9 then replace the corners and fill in the rest working from side to side until they are all in place.

So..I'm a female nerd!! How and can I change the transmission fluid myself? It is a 96 chevy blazer 4 wheel drive


It's not too hard at all. You'll need a decent size drain pan. You'll want to remove all but a couple of the transmission pan bolts on the bottom of the transmission. Let the fluid drain out as you loosen the last couple bolts. Once most of the fluid has drained out, remove the last couple bolts and let the pan done and pour out the remaining fluid, discard the old pan gasket. I would also replace the transmission filter, the new filter should have a new pan gasket with it. Remove the old filter, install the new filter, use some gasket cement to glue down the new gasket to the pan and reinstall and fill with new fluid. I would also check your transfer case fluid level, the transfer case is behind the transmission.

2002 Jaguar X-Type Oil Pan Gasket replacement


have you smashed the sump ??never seen one leak yet?? sure its not the front or rear end oil seals ??..sounds like you have the sub frame in the way ,evan if you remove this bolt you will not be able to drop the sump without removing or lowering the sub frame assembly as the oil pick up pipe stops you from removing the sump in situe.Its not difficult to drop sub frame just time consuming

Flushing the transmission


To change the transmission fluid make sure you have purchased: 1. filter with the o-ring 2. MOPAR ATF + 3 Type 7176, p/n 05010124AA fluid (I believe it took 6 quarts?) You are not changing the torque converter fluid so there will not be 12 quarts needed.). 3. Pan gasket. You should receive the new neoprene reusable pan gasket. This is because the recommendation is to change the transmission fluid every 25,000 miles. 4. There is a fluid additive to prevent foaming? Use it.


Raise the vehicle on a hoist. Remove the pan bolts. Remove the old gasket material with a plastic scraper. There could be metal transfer if you use a metal scraper. Clean the pan carefully. Clean the magnet that sits in the pan as it collects the minute metal shavings. If you see an excess of larger particles, you really should have the transmission inspected at a shop. Replace the filter carefully looking at its arrangement before removing. It took a second look to install a new filter because I did not watch how it was situated before removing. Use a thin coat of transmission fluid on the new pan gasket. Orient reusable gasket properly with bolt holes and assemble oil pan and gasket to transmission case. Tighten oil pan bolts to 19 Nm (165 in lbs.). CAUTION: DO NOT OVERFILL TRANSAXLE. DO NOT ADD OIL IF LEVEL IS BETWEEN: LOWER HOLES FOR WARM OIL (100?F). UPPER HOLES FOR HOT OIL (180?F.).
