SOURCE: Trying to drop the oil

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

SOURCE: Removal of oil pan?

The car has three mounts in a triangle configuration. The front trans mount, the passenger side motor mount and the rear motor mount. I do not know if anyone has ever successfully raised the engine to slide the pan out, but remember, if you do this, the pan goes back on with anaerobic gasket maker on it, so make sure you can slide it out with grating on the underside of the block. If you can't, then it will likely be impossible to get back in place without smearing the gasket maker all over and making a heck of a mess. The commonly accepted way to remove the pan is to remove the two front subframe bolts and allow the subframe to drop enough to get the clearance you require. The bolts are 18 mm heads and are really torqued on there so you will need a serious breaker bar and cheater bar to go with it. USE SOLID JACKSTANDS or BETTER YET, RAMPS to do this. The force you will need to apply can take the car right off a single jack.

SOURCE: How do I remove and replace the radio in a 1993

First thing is to understand you will most likely have to run all new speaker wire as the head unit in your car has everything external to the head unit (power amplifier, fader). The plastic around shifter pulls up off, then remove wood surround. Remove ashtray, pull face off head unit usually by sticking fingers in cassette area and pull. There will be plastic tabs on the bottom of unit push in and pull out on head unit, pull slowly so you can inspect wires for placement. Again rerunning speaker wire should be done to preclude external amps and fader switch and power antenna if yours still works.

How to remove oil pan without pulling motor on 89 mitsubishi mightymax


You must disconnect the engine from the motor mounts and exhaust and remove anything that will interfere with raising it off the mounts as high as possible, once it is off the mounts and raised the pan can be removed. I read this at a owners site from a guy who has done the job, he said it is a real pain in the rear but doable.

How do i disconeect the motor mounts i need to disconnect motor mounts so i can raise the motor and remove th oil pan


The motor mounts have a hinge bolt that goes through the upper engine hard bracket and the engine mount rubber section, it goes from from to rear in line with the engine, remove the nuts and take the load off the mount with a floor jack under the pan (use a block softwood to avoid denting the pan), once the nut and load is off slide the long bolt out and raise the engine.

Do i have to drop the frontend to pull the oil pan 2000 Z71 silverado


Hey Phil,
I own a 98 silverado and just had to drop the pan this weekend. The first thing you will need to do is diconnect the battery, un-bolt the starter, ****** strut arms, fly wheel cover and un-bolt all the oil pan bolts. (I also had to remove the oil filter and adapter cause there was one oil pan bolt I could not get to.) The next step is to pull both motor mount bolts and raise the motor up with a cherry picker. I slipped two 2x4 blocks under the motor to rest on the motor mounts.

I hope this was helpful and you were able to get your oil pan off. I know its alot to do as the MFG was not thinking when they built them or somthing.

I need to replace to oil pump in my 1989 Merc 200D (W124) is it located in the Sump?? & is it a big job to do?? Thanks Phil.


yes the oil pump is located in the sump. The oil pan would have to be removed and it can be kind of a time consuming repair. Hardest part is getting the oil pan out once you have it loose. Need to raise the motor up in order for clearance. Not too common those oil pump have to be replaced since they are chain driven and completely mechanical.

You'll need to raise the engine to replace the oil pan. Take the trans./converter loose, remove the engine mounts, wiring, fuel line, and anything else that could be a problem with raising the engine. You can use 2 6 x 6's and place under the engine mounts and rest the engine on these. This should provide you with room to drop the pan.
