Anything is possible, the gasket could have been improperly installed or maybe the part was low quality. Clean off the bottom of engine and make sure that is where the leak is before jumping to conclusions though.

Changing a oil pan for a 95 grand marquis

Just loosen oil plug and drain...take out pan bolts... drop down...make sure alt gasket material is off of both pan and bottom of motor. Lay new gasket on oil pan...possibly use gasket sealer to keep gasket in place...a very thin layer on oil pan then put gasket on. Let dry for a bit then bolt back up...make sure oil plug is back in then refill....cheers!

How do I change the oil pan gasket?

Whether it's an engine oil pan (called the 'sump'' in the UK) or a transmission oil pan the principle is the same on all vehicles.
1. Drain the oil

2. Remove the bolts holding the sump/pan in place:

change-oil-pan-gasket-mcgwfbeeztshkxy1nyom2hsg-4-3.jpg change-oil-pan-gasket-mcgwfbeeztshkxy1nyom2hsg-4-6.jpgNew gasket held in place with sealant
Use a blunt screwdriver -if needed - and prise the oil pan free. remove all traces of the old gasket from the mating surfaces.

Use a smear of sealant to hold the new gasket in the correct position on the pan - this will hold it in place when you refit the pan.

Push the pan into position and put in a front bolt finger-tight. Then put in a rear bolt finger-tight.

Putting in the bolts finger-tight allows you to gently 'move' the pan if needed to put the bolts in one at a time.

When all bolts are in, tighten them with a wrench/socket. Then check them all again for tightness.

It isn't actually a big job .. more 'messy' because of the oil.

I have a 1987 chevorlete nova 1.6 liters it has a small oil leak I have to put oil in it ever now it's seem like it's coming from the front left side

is the 1.6 liter a six cylinder or slant 6 cylinder by any chance. if not. look for fuel pump location, is this where the oil dripping. or cover that has bolts that have a cover there, if so the gaskets for the cover or the fuel pump gasket needs replacing., try crawling down there when the car is running and see if it linking from the oil pan toward the front cover of oil pan. look where the timing chain location it on the front of motor, and the fan maybe blowing the oil over there. or it could be the vavle cover top cover where the lifters are located, the oil can be linking from there and running down the motor, you will idea the bad gasket remove the bolts, clean off oil, old gasket material, new gasket sealant and gasket sets, bolts down, lets setup few hours, refill oil levels, and everything should be okay.

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 i remove oil pan gasket

Let the oil out of the pan. If it's going to be reused then put it in a clean container. Remove all the bolts that hold the pan onto the engine. If it doesn't come loose after the last bolt is removed give it a light tap with a rubber mallet. Using a screw driver to pry it off will only bend the pan and scar the engine block. Don't use one. If the gasket tears when removing the pan , use a putty knife to scrape ALL the old gasket material on both the pan and the engine. Be careful not to gouge the aluminum surface or the new gasket will never seal. Use a gasket adhesive and apply it to one side only of the new gasket. Place the gasket on the pan . Use some pan bolts to line up the holes in the gasket with the pan and let the adhesive dry a while. Now carefully put the pan up against the engine and put each pan bolt in by hand. Do not tighten any of them until all of them are installed. Only then tighten them all. Put back the oil and you're done.

How to replace oil pan in 2006 suzuki xl-7

Depends on ease of access. Many oil pans can be dropped without removing the engine. You will have to put car up on ramps and chock the wheels. Set emergency brakes and make sure car is in Park. I know, sounds like overkill, but better to much safety than one deadly accident. Drain your oil pan just like you would to do an oil change. Locate your oil pan bolts and carefully remove them. This should allow the pan to drop free for the gasket to be replaced. The leak may be due to loosened or lost bolts and not a bad gasket. You might try tightening them first and replacing any lost ones. Be sure not to over-tighten or could could bend the pan and that's a whole new bucket of problems. If you do replace the gasket, clean both surfaces, put new gasket on pan with a THIN bead of gasket sealant, put a THIN smear on top of the gasket and put back onto engine block. Tighten bolts to specified torque. May as well put on a new oil filter. No sense keeping cruddy oil filter with new oil. PUT OIL IN ENGINE. Remove from ramp and let run a bit, shut off for 5 minutes and recheck oil level. Be forewarned, this is a really dirty, crungy job. Wear clothes you're not emotionally attached to. Have hot water and dish soap at the ready to clean-up. No body wants to grab a door knob that's got yucky motor oil on it. And jump straight to the shower.

How to remove the transmision filter on a 1990 buick regal limited ??

To remove the ****** filter you will need to lift front of car off the ground to have some room to get under the front off it, ramps would work good, next is to locate the ****** pan on the bottom of the ******, you will put a big pan under the ****** to catch oil as it leaks when removing the pan, you will need to remove all the bolts on the pan, oil will leak out as last bolts are removed, you will need to remove bolts leaving a few on one coner, this will allow pan to tilt down and allow oil to drain out, when most of the oil comes out hold pan up and remove last bolts, then lower pan down and empty. you will need to clean pan out and make gasket mating area clean, set pan aside, at bottom of ****** you will see the filter, note the way filetr is set, you will pull down to remove, there will be a neck that slides into trany hole, theres a gasketring thats inside that hole, you will need to remove it and install new one, then slide new gasket in place, tap up and in with hand, next you will use some brake cleaner to spray around the surface where the gasket sits on ****** and wipe clean, next place gasket on the pan and use a few bolts to hold in place befor putting the pan up wipe any oil off the ****** area where gasket will sit on then put pan on and hold up as you start a few bolts, then instal all bolts and tighen snug,not too tight, you will see the gasket start to push out thats to tight, then lower the car add 4qts of the correct type of fluid and start the car and run through all gears and then to park and check the level and add as needed. hope this helps , good day
