Changing barings in an '88 corolla

I was told it's possible to access the barrings by going through the oil pan? Is this true and is it worth the effort or is a rebuilt the answer?

If you don't have experience with engine building your best bet is to source a good used motor as the crankshaft may be gouged and will wipe out the new bearings very quickly good luck and try ebay for the motor please rate -jeff

WHAT'S NORMALLY THE CAUSE TO BREAK AN OIL PAN FOR TOYOTA COROLLA CE 2005


Bring it to a mechanic different than the one who gave you that advice. I suspect that the plug gasket is leaking. It is possible that you need a new oil pan if you hit it with something like a rock or driving over a curb. Again a mechanic can inspect it and tell you right away. The dealer oil changes have nothing to do with this.

Where is the location of the bolts on the tourque convertor?


there is usually and access cover on the bottom right behind the oil pan, the bolts are on the back of the flywheel. This is true with most automatics but if it is different I know a guy who has changed these out before that I can ask.

I would like to change the oil in my 2006 Smart Car diesel. I was told I couldn't because the oil had to be pumped out. Is that True?


I just had my oil changed in my 2006 deisel smart..and yes it had to be pumped out as they don't have a drain plug on a lot of the older modls. I understand that the newer ones have a plug.

Oil pan gasket leaks. It has been changed 2 times and now I am told that it doesn't take a regular gasket, but liquid gasket that is put on the oil pan. Is this true?


Yes this is true. I have always applied the RTV to the oil pan first in a liberal layer and then allowed to set up then applied a second layer and installed pan. Never had one leak after that.

Typically these are assembled wet (not set up) by the inexperienced. This allows most of the RTV to escape between the surfaces.

Leaking oil was told it had an upper and lower oil pan is this correct? Was told in order to repair upper pan , engine needed to come out, this sounds extreme. what can be done to fix the problem?


to examine this firstly buy some degreaser, clean the engine so the location of the leak can be pin pointed, take it to anothe mechanic for a second opinion {always the wiser move}, always into saving money. Good luck

Engine knocking on toyota corolla after replacing damaged sump


oil pan and sump damage are very likely to lead to oil distribution problems, this is not temporary, if you hear a knock have it checked by a local mechanic who can verify it for you, it is possible that the engine is damaged internally.

That Oil Pump Should be Located Inside the Oil Pan. Would not require Removal of the Tranny or Motor.
