More than likely it's the extra sealant when it was assembled that you see hanging out. See Autozone.com for more info and possible parts needed.

I HAVE 1997 FORD TAURUS, AND IT HAD AN OIL LEAK, HOW CAN I TELL IF IT IS THE OIL PAN OR A BLOWN HEAD GASKET?


the head gasket is on the engine higher than the oil pan so if the leak is not were the head meets the cylinder block and running down towards the bottom of the motor then the head gasket is not the problem.if the leak is only around the oil pan area and slightly above it then its probably the oil pan that is leaking.fluid leaks travel backwards or downwards not up.

Leaking water from oil pan or behind oil pan


figure out what type/size engine you have, call a dealer and ask for service department. ask them whether that engine has freeze plugs on the back of the block underneath the flywheel or ring gear. if not you may have a head gasket or heater hose leak which is dripping down through the bell housing presenting itself as coming via the oil pan gasket. there should be no water whatsoever in the oil pan and if there is you need to look around for a replacement used engine.

How hard is to chagne an oil pan gasket?


Here is the procedure. You DO have to remove the flexplate cover to get to the back 2 bolts. There are also a couple struts on the sides that block a couple bolts, if i recall correctly. I think you can do it in a couple hours.

How do i remove the oil pan


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION - Oil Pan

CAUTION The EPA warns that prolonged contact with used engine oil may cause a number of skin disorders, including cancer! You should make every effort to minimize your exposure to used engine oil. Protective gloves should be worn when changing the oil. Wash your hands and any other exposed skin areas as soon as possible after exposure to used engine oil. Soap and water, or waterless hand cleaner should be used. (except 2.5 Premier engine)

db01a06.jpg

Fig. 8: Clean the gasket mating surface of the oil pan of all old gasket material, dirt, grease or other grime-2.6L engine
  1. Apply the parking brake, block the rear wheels, then raise and safely support the front of the vehicle on jackstands.
  2. Drain the engine oil. This would also be a good time to change the oil filter.
  3. Remove the engine-to-transaxle struts, if so equipped. These struts prohibit access to the oil pan mounting bolts.
  4. Remove the torque converter or clutch inspection cover.
  5. Support the oil pan and remove the mounting bolts.
  6. Lower the pan and remove the old gasket, if so equipped.
To install:
  1. Clean all gasket surfaces thoroughly.
  2. For 2.6L engines, position a new gasket on the oil pan using a sealer to hold it in place.
1981-87 2.2 and 2.5 Liter engine uses a liquid form-in-place type gasket. Chrysler Part Number 4205918, or equivalent RTV gasket material must be used.
  1. For 1981-87 2.2 and 2.5L engines, install new end seals and apply the form-in-place gasket sealant. The RTV gasket material should be applied in a continuous bead approximately 1 / 8 in. (3mm) in diameter. All mounting holes must be circled. Uncured RTV may be removed with a rag. The oil pan should be tightened in place while the RTV is still wet to the touch (within 10 minutes). The usage of a locating dowel is recommended during assembly to prevent smearing of the material off location. Make sure to apply sealer where the end seals meet the block.
1988-95 2.2L and 2.5L engines utilize end seals and side gaskets, not liquid gasket as with 1981-87 models.
  1. On 1988-95 2.2L and 2.5L engines, install new end seals and side gaskets. Apply RTV sealant to the parting lines between the end and side seals on these engines. If necessary, use a little grease or RTV sealant to hold the side seals in place.
  2. Tighten the pan bolts in a crisscross fashion, starting from the center of the oil pan and working toward the ends, to the following torque values:
    2.6L engine-53-61 inch lbs. (5.9-6.8 Nm) 1981-87 2.2L and 2.5L engines-16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm) 1988-95 2.2L and 2.5L engines-M8 bolts, 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm); M6 bolt, 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm)
  3. Allow the oil pan to sit for 15 minutes to ensure that the RTV sealant has completely set.
  4. Install the oil drain plug and a new oil filter, if equipped, then lower the vehicle.
  5. Refill the engine with oil
  6. Start the engine and check for oil leaks.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

Oil leaks


you have to closely inspect the motor and the gaskets, the intake gasket often leeks oil, as does a head gasket, if you cant find anything on the lower end of the motor neaqr the pans, that would be the things i looked into next

My engine keeps overheating and cooling back down every few minutes..also my air vents don't blow hot air


If you added three gallons of coolant you must have a leak somewhere. Those motors were notorious for intake gasket leaks. Take a good look at the corners of the intake where it meets the cylinder head. Check the oil and make sure it's not milky. Usually when the intake gasket goes it seems to leak externally but it's possible it could leak into the engine and end up in the oil pan which will prove to be disastrous if you continue to run the motor with that oil in it.

Need torque specs for oil pan gasket


There likely is a spec for oil pan but unless you are a finatic, you really don't need to know what it is. Simple rule: Don't crank down ******* any fastener. If corners near crank ends have larger fasteners, you can tighten them a bit more than on siderails. Before tightening anything, install all bolts finger tight, to ensure that they are not cross threaded. To avoid warping pan, tighten from the center of the pan, working towards both ends, alternating from side to side as you go. When you are finished, go over it again, using the same amount of force on each bolt. As I said, end bolts can if larger in diameter, be tightened more but be careful not to tighten so much that you will either split or push the gasket out the sides.. Anywhere two gasket ends **** together, I recommend using a sensor -safe dab of silicone. An oil pan is not under any mechanical stress or pressure. I have used this method for many years and NEVER had one leak. If you really need #s, small fasteners get about 12-15in lbs, larger ones about 20.
