Oil Pan 1998 k2500 7.4 liter engine

Do I have to drop the front suspension or raise the engine to change the oil pan on my 98 chevy k2500. Dropping the front suspension is almost impossible due to heavy rust on the nuts and bolts.

You will have to remove your engine. You still will not have enough room to remove the pan from you big block by just trying to raise it.

Oil pump replacement


Depends on what vehicle you have. Most pumps can be changed by dropping the oil pan. It may require raising the engine somewhat for the pan to clear the sump. Some vehicles have the oil pump run off the crankshaft on the side of the engine as well and are easier to access and change

How to remove low oil pressure oil pump in 6.0 ford f350


I would attack the project from the underside and drop the front twin Ibeam suspension rather than from the top where the engine must be raised to clear the suspension.

The oil pump is in the oil pan... so you must gain enough space between the susp. and the pan to remove the pan.

Good luck !
we just got done doing the EGR on one of these and it took us 20+ hrs as it is located on top under all the **** , like the intake etc.

What is involved with replacing the oil pan on 1998 GMC Sierra?


  • Step 1 Raise the truck using the proper equipment. Use a ramp or a jack and jack stands to support the vehicle securely by following all directions for use provided by this equipment's manufacturer.
  • Step 2 Drain all oil from the Silverado by placing an oil drip pan under the vehicle's engine block, directly under the oil drain plug. The drain plug is located on the oil pan, between the vehicle's tires underneath the vehicle. Use a wrench to loosen and remove the plug allowing the oil to drain into the pain below.
  • Step 3 Notice the various items attached to the oil pan or in the way of the oil pan dropping. For the oil pan to drop, remove the negative battery cable, front differential (only for four-wheel drive vehicles) and the under body shield by using a wrench or socket set.
  • Step 4 Remove the oil pan shield by loosening the four bolts holding it in place along the edges of the shield. Then, remove the cross brace, oil filter, the transmission to oil pan bolts and the oil level sensor.
  • Step 5 Follow the removal of those pieces by removing the bolts from the two front wiring harness, the engine wiring harness retainer, engine oil cooler pipe to oil bolts and the transmission oil cooler pipe retainer using a wrench. Located the closeout covers and bolts located on each side of the engine and remove them.
  • Step 6 Disconnect each of the oil pan bolts using a wrench that will allow the oil pan to drop. The oil pan gasket will also fall off and replacement should occur before reinstalling the oil pan.

    How do you do a oil change on a 2005 dodge neon sxt


    After getting all oil,oil filter and oil catch pan if I havent bought one, I warm my vehicle for a few min to get teh oil flowable. then raise the front end and locate the drain plug on the oil pan. Place an oil catch pan (5-8.00 @ most stores) under the oil pan and carefully remove the drain plug. I then lower the vehicle and wait till all oil is removed. Raise the vehicle tehn replace oil drain plug and tighten, careful not to over tighten, then slid the oil catch pan under the oil filter and remove the oil filer, some oil will spill here so rubber gloves and papper towels come in handy for this part. Lay the old oil filter on the oil catch pan to allow the old oil to drain while relacing with new oil filter. I rub a thin film of oil on the rubber seal of the oil filter before threading back onto the engine. lower vehicle and add new oil as needed. start vehicel then check for any leaks then shut off engine and check oil level and add more if needed. I then poor the oil oil in the empty oil container so I can drop off at wal mart or other oil recycling center.
