Cracked drip pan on a 1996 3.8 Rivera Buick.


Hi! My name is Tom and I can help you.

By drip pan I am going to assume you mean oil pan. First you need to get your car on blocks or up in the air enough to reach the oil pan.

Remove the drain plug and drain the oil.(discard the oil). You will see a number of bolts securing the pan. Using the proper box wrench remove all the bolts.

You will see a gasket. This must be replaced. You can purchase the proper pan gasket by asking for a pan gasket at an auto parts store. While you are there ask for the proper sealant for the gasket.

Clean the pan and any oil on the surface where the gasket will touch. Place gasket sealer around the pan and seal the gasket to the pan cover. Replace the pan. Put the bolts back and fill with oil. Start the car and get it to operational temperature and check for leaks. You are now Good to go.

This is a fairly involved yet simple fix.

PO 1665 code 1998 Buick Rivera, PO 440 code


EVAP is for Evaporative emissions control system, so no this is not EGR, that is Exhaust Gas Recirculation system, as far as the P1665 goes it is related to the other trouble code P0440, u will need to replace the EVAP system Purge flow control solenoid. This should correct both problems after u replace the part disconnect the battery for 5 min's to reset system.

Likely, the "overdrive lockup" is malfunctioning. This is internal and requires that trans be removed for service. Have an honest, competent transmission shop evaluate your problem. Transmissions are expensive, so unless the remainder of your vehicle is in really excellent shape, the cost of a rebuild may not be a valid expense (only you know that) consider buying another vehicle. Transmissions are no longer a quick easy backyard repair!
