Question about Ford F-150

1 Answer

Trying to drop the oil pan out of my 1994 Ford F-150 (4.9L) to replace the gasket. Ive taken out the motor mounts and jacked the engine almost high enough to get the oil pan out and I am wondering if i need to drop the oil pump into the pan or remove the transmission to get it out or if this is necessary?

Done this on several i-6 f-150s. slide back or remove transmission, remove motor mount bolts from frame(not motor), jack motor up as far as possible without damaging egr valve or wiper motor when they hit, shim under motor mounts so that when you drop the jack the motor does not come back down any(the motor is well balanced on the mounts, it will not fall out of the truck like a v8 will), then remove the oil pan. you May have to remove the pickup tube(usually not), and you May have to rotate the crankshaft so that the lobes clear the oil pan. this is a common problem with these trucks due to the size of the oil pan(Huge), and the minimum pan to crossmember clearance

Ok I have a 1995 ford aspire im trying to figure out how to replace the oil pump


Disconnect the motor mounts and jack the engine to remove the oil pan. Remove the oil pan, replace the oil pump you'll find at the end of a pick up tube, replace the pump and put the pick up tube back on the new pump making sure it's in the same low position it was when removed, replace the oil pan gasket and put the oil pan back on, lower the engine and put the motor mount bolts back in. Put in the proper amount of oil and go.

How do I change oil pan gasget


Jack up truck for safety sake put jack stands under frame . remove all engine oil remove all bolts holding oil pan on if their is not enough room to drop pan you may have to remove bolts holding motor mounts and jack up engine. if front end linkage is still in the way remove linkage. pull oil pan out. check gasket that was between block and oil pan if any stuck to block of engine remove with gasket scraper or wire brush or wire wheel on drill.make sure mating surface is clean put new gasket on new oil pan I like to use a high temp sealer on gasket both sides. Put pan with gasket back in place of old oil pan and tighten all bolts. jack engine down ,replace moter mount bolts replace any linkage you took apart. and dont forget to replace engine oil. make sure oil plug is in pan before pouring oil in . before starting engine check that no oil is leaking than start engine and check for any leaks again if all is good your done. if this was helpful please leave good feed back. A good temp fix on a rusted oil pan is JB weld make sure no oil is on pan clean with towel and rubbing alchol .you may have to drain oil first. if it is rusted badly you may have to use a wire brush on a drill to clean the area to patch. if patched properly it may last for years.

How do you replace a oil pan on a 1985 Ford Tempo Do you have to remove engine?


u should not have to remove pan. if the seal is leaking just replace. when u loosen the bolts it will provide enough room to replace gasket.
if you really have to replace the pan. you have to loosen the motor mounts and jack up the engine a little. be very careful!!!!

Cant get the oil pan off a 302


You have to jack the engine up after removing the motor mount bolts on each side. Then once you have the engine jacked up a few inches, slide a piece of wood (2x4) in between the upper and lower parts of the motor mounts on each side. This will keep the engine elevated enough for you to drop the oil pan and replace the gasket. Then, just put all the bolts back in in the proper torque sequence, torque them all to spec,remove the wooden blocks from the motor mounts, slowly lower the engine back down and put the motor mount bolts back in.

How do i change oil pan gasket on 1988 e-350


You should be able to drop the pan by removing the bolts. On some vehicles it is necessary to jack the engine up after removing the bolts from the engine mounts. If this is necessary then once you have your engine up high enough (usually 3 to 4 inches) put small blocks of wood where the mount would go to support the engine while you remove the oil pan. Also you can work the oil pan gasket around the oil pickup tube with the pan down with out having to totally remove the pan from underneathe the truck. If you do this just make sure the gasket is not twisted before reinstalling the pan onto the engine.

Do i need to drop the oil pan to ghange the timing cover gasket on a 95 ford mustang v6?


You can pull the motor mounts bolts and jack the motor up alittle, that will give you enough clearance to drop your oil pan. If you try and replace the timing chain cover without dropping the oil pan, you will more than likely wind up with an oil leak.

You should be able to replace the timing cover without removing the oil pan. The gasket set should contain gaskets allowing you to cut the oil pan gasket and put in a new partial gasket in this area. In the corners make sure you use some RTV sealant. If you are careful, it can be done. Like Bob A says you can end up with a oil leak without dropping the pan (unless you clean up the area and properly apply the RTV and gasket). If you have time to drop the oil pan, then I would do that.
