How to change an oil pan gasket?

You do not have much information to reply to.

First, buy the proper gasket, oil filter and enough oil for your vehicle so that you can complete the job. You will also need a drain pan large enough to hold all of the oil you drain out of the engine (5 quarts is usually what you need). You will also need sockets, wrenches a rubber mallet to remove the pan as well as rags to wipe up any spills.

You will need enough access under the vehicle to crawl under it and place the drain pan under the drain plug. (you might need to either use ramps or jack the car up to gain access. Be careful.)

Use a wrench to remove the drain plug turning counter clockwise to remove. The oil will then drain out. (make sure you have a rag to wipe up any spilled oil). Use an oil filter wrench to remove the oil filter from the engine.

Look up at the pan and you will see lots of small bolts around the upper part of the pan. These are what holds the pan to the engine. They must be removed. If the pan is stuck to the engine after removing all of the bolts, us the rubber mallet to GENTLY tap around the top part of the pan to break it free from the engine (be very careful as the metal of the oil pan is very thin and easily bent).

Lower the pan from the vehicle and clean, removing all traces of the old gasket from the pan as well as the engine. (use a putty knife and be careful not to put any gouges in the pan or engine surface.

Place the new gasket on the top of the pan, place it up against the engine and hand tighten all of the bolts. Then using a socket, gently tighten the bolts (clockwise) using a cross pattern to keep the gasket from warping. (do NOT over tight the bolts as they will break off fairly easily) Do not forget to tighten the oil drain plug as well.

Replace the new oil filter on the engine and add the proper amount of oil.

Start and run the engine and check for any leaks.
Turn off and let sit for a minute and re-check the oil level.

How to replace oil pan

5.2 liter V8 engine?

Remove the four front skid-plate bolts holding the front skid plate, using a ratchet and socket. Remove the skid plate.

Pull the plastic splash shield away from the vehicle, loosening the retaining clips. Remove the splash shield.

  • Place an oil drain container under the oil pan. Loosen the drain fitting with a wrench until oil drains from the pan. When oil is done draining, tighten the drain fitting.

  • Disconnect the electrical connections running to the starter motor. Remove the starter motor mounting bolts with a ratchet and socket, then remove the starter motor.
  • Remove the oxygen sensor socket from the exhaust pipe, using a wrench.
  • Remove the exhaust manifold bolts where the exhaust meets the manifold on both sides, using a ratchet and socket
  • Place an jack under the transmission to support it. Remove the pressure on the transmission crossmember.

  • Remove the bolts that hold the transmission crossmember in place, using a ratchet and socket. Then remove the crossmember. Place a jack stand under the transmission to keep the transmission from falling off the jack if hit. Once removed, the exhaust will hang down, allowing enough room to remove the oil pan.
  • Disconnect the oil level sensor and the nut retaining the transmission cooling lines, using a wrench.
  • Remove the oil pan bolts with a ratchet and socket, then remove the oil pan and gasket.
  • Clean the mounting surfaces of the new oil pan and engine block. Make sure what ever you use to clean the surfaces dosn't gouge the metal.
  • Place a coat of RTV (gasket) sealer on the engine block where the pan will meet the rear main cap.
  • Place the new gasket on the pan and push the new oil pan into place. Finger tighten the oil pan mounting bolts to hold it in place. Tighten the bolts with a torque wrench to 18 ft-lbs. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE BOLTS! Doing so will cause the gasket to deform and create leaks!

  • Connect the oil level sensor and the nut retaining the transmission cooling lines, using a wrench.
  • Place the exhaust back into position and replace the transmission crossmember bolts and crossmember with a ratchet and socket.
  • Remove the jack supporting the transmission.
  • Connect the exhaust back to both sides of the manifold, tightening the bolts with a torque wrench to 20 ft-lbs.
  • Attach the oxygen sensor socket to the exhaust pipe with a wrench.

  • Replace the starter motor by installing the starter motor mounting bolts with a ratchet and socket. Connect the electrical connections to the starter motor that were disconnected during removal.
  • Push the retaining clips on the plastic splash shield into the appropriate retaining clip holes.
  • Replace the front skid plate by replacing the four front skid plate bolts with a ratchet and socket.
  • Fill the engine with 5 quarts of oil. Make sure to check the level on the dipstick to find the exact level when filling.

    What type of oil pump is on 1999 GMC Yukon V8 5.7L 350? Is it 3/8 or 5/4, I am getting the motor rebuilt.

    If you are referring to the pickup screen tube size, it would be either a 3/4inch or a 5/8 inch Most rplacement pumps use the 3/4. If in doubt, buy the pump and pickup at the same time and get both of them in the same size.

    Looking for the oil drain

    here's the whole process
    Start the engine and let it idle in neutral until the radiator fan goes on. Hotter oil drains more completely. Shut off the engine and let the oil drain into the drain pan for five minutes.

  • 2 Unscrew the engine oil-filler cap. You don't need to remove it, since you just want air to get in so the oil can drain. The engine oil cap is labeled SAE 5W-30 and is on the right side of the engine toward the front for both the V6 and the V8 engine. The dipstick is an inch or two away on both engines.
  • 3 Slide under the car engine and locate the oil drain bolt. It will be the lowest point on the engine. Don't mistake the transmissionunderlined.png?1 fluid drain plug for the oil drain bolt. You can tell them apart because the metal around the engine oil drain bolt will still be hot.
  • 4 Loosen the drain bolt counterclockwise with a crescent wrench. If it doesn't budge, use a closed end wrench for a better grip. Slide a drain pan under the engine oil drain bolt. Unscrew and remove the drain bolt by hand. Workunderlined.png?1 on the oil filter while the oil drains.
  • 5 Identify the oil filter as baseball sized; a cylinder about as tall as it is wide. It will be on the underside of the engine. Orient your oil filter wrench to grip when turned counterclockwise, if it's the type that has an oriented grip. (Some oil-filter wrenches grip when turned one direction but not the other.) Fit the oil filter wrench over the oil filter. Turn it, preferably with a socket wrench, though a crescent wrench suffices. The male socket goes in the center hole of the oil filter wrench. Just loosen the filter with the wrench. Unscrew and remove the filter by hand.
  • 6 Screw the drain bolt back in, after draining for an hour. If you use a torque wrench, make sure to tighten to 29 foot-pounds. Edmunds recommends replacing the washer, since drain bolt washers are compressible and wear out fast.
  • 7 Remove the O-ring that seals between the filter and the engine. Clean the engine cavity with a rag, including rubber O-ring residue. Coat the new O-ring on the new filter with clean oil, hold it in the cavity and screw the new filter on manually until you feel some resistance. Set the oil filter wrench to grasp clockwise. Place the oil filter wrench on the new filter and turn clockwise an additional 2/3 revolution. Be careful not to overtighten, which can lead to an oil leak. For the oil filter, use GM part 25177917 or ACDelco part PF2129 for the 3.6L V6, and use GM part 89017342 or ACDelco part PF61 for the 4.6L V8.
  • 8 Pour six quarts of motor oil in the refill cap opening of the V6 engine and eight quarts. into the V8 engine. Cadillac recommends that you use only an oil that meets GM Standard GM4718M. Otherwise, you could cause engine damage that is not covered by your warranty. Cadillac also recommends using SAE 5W-30 viscosity oil, with the API "for gasoline engines" starburst on the packagingunderlined.png?1.
  • 9 Check the dipstick, which is one or two inches from the engine oil-filler cap. The oil should come to the cross-hatched area, but not higher. Overfilling can reduce mileage and even harm the engine. Screw the filler cap back on.
  • 10 Start the engine and idle it in neutral until the radiator fan goes on. Inspect the drain bolt and the filter for oil leaks. Take the car off any supports.
  • 11 Reset the engine oil life system after every oil change. Scroll the Driver Information Center (DIC) until it displays "Oil Life." Hold the reset button until it reads 100%.
  • good luck
