You have to work with it. in the oil pan there is a plate that has a slot in it so the oil pump will fit into the bottom of the pan... if you pull to hard you might take a chance on running your iol pump.

Remove upper oil pan on 94 ford probe have it loose wont come off


sum pans on original engines are glued on at the gasket. You may have to use something like a wood chisel to break the seal between the pan flange and the crank case edge.

Changing the oil on a 2000 caviler coupe and \I broke the plug loose and it turns but it still wont come out of the oil pan.... any soulutions?


the threads in the pad are likely stripped if its an aluminum pan or the nut has broken loose on the inside of the pan if it is a steel pan. Either way a new oil pan will be needed. Typically over tightening the drain plug will cause this to happen. Drain plug torque specs are pretty low, typically around 20 foot pounds. A person can easily exceed this with the average wrench.

My cadillac catera has oil licking from the bottom of the oil pan


HI. This will normally be the result of a failed oil pan gasket. With that said, I will list other areas of concern below. Have theses areas checked for faults asap.

1. Loose or improperly secured oil outlet screw.
2. Failed oil plug screw ring gasket.
3. Failed head gasket
4. Damaged or overly secured oil filter device.
5. Damaged or deteriorating oil pan gasket.
6. Damaged or breached oil pan.

2005 pontiac sunfire 2.2 L my son hit the oil pan and leaked all the oil out and car died.so i repired oil pan filled back with 5/30 oil started the car a lifter noise was present but went away but as we...


i think you need to take the oil pan back off and take a good look at the rod bearings, this engine sounds a lot like upper end noise when the piston is hitting the bottom of the cylinder head because a rod bearing has spun.

Motor oil keeps running out within 10 min of driving my acura 1996 2.5tl


NOT GOOD. You have a serious problem which may be an oversight, or a big failure.
Oversight possibility--oil filter left loose or oil fill plug in oil pan left loose.
Failure possibility--oil line came off, bad head gasket, bad valve cover gasket, bad timing cover gasket, bad inspection cover gasket, bad intake manifold gasket. Some of these should make the car smoke really bad, some not.
Good luck, and if I helped you, please remember to vote/comment.

Took my 2002 honda accord in for oil change was told I could possibly have an oil leak as oil was low. What could cause this?


Worn gasket seal around pan, worn or loose oil plug, pin hole in pan, someone forgot to put back the oil cap are some suggestions that come to mind.
