Remove the motor mount bolts and raise the engine slowly. Don't dent the oil pan when raising the engine! After the engine is raised, you should have enough clearance to remove the pan.

Will i have to remove motor to replace oil pan gasket on a 2001 gmc sonoma 2.2l 5 speed


You may have to loosen the transmission also to get enough room to remove it without taking the motor out. Make sure your pan is not cracked first. Also be careful when lifting the motor as to not damage anything on top of the engine.

How do I replace motor mounts on a 1989 Honda Accord LXi 2dr? Am I suppose to support the engine with a jack by the oil pan and if so, should I put a piece of wood between the jack and the oil pan to not...


You got it
Wood under oil pan
May need a long pry bar also
Just don't pry on any aluminium items,trans case
& such.
Do all motor & trans axle mounts & be done with
not having to come back there ever again
Support the car with jack stands & be careful when
raising the engine some, that the sub frame stays
on the jack stands & only the motor moves just
enough to get the mounts out.

in most cases you need to loosen motor mounts and raise the engine up a few inches to gain enough clearance to slide the pan out, if you cant gain enough this way the only other two options are to remove the motor or drop the front end out of the way.

How to replace the oil pan gasket?


Drain oil, remove oil pan bolts, drop pan, scrape remnants of old gasket off, attach new gasket to pain using silicone gasket sealer (Permatex) and reinstall & refill w/oil. Some applications require loosening motor mounts and raising engine a couple of inches to clear cross members.

Oil pan removal?


Im not sure if you are talking about the motor pan or the tranny pan. But I have lifted the motor and tranny together on a vehicle to change the motor pan and mounts before. I remember having to loosen the fan shroud. Undo linkage on the tranny and make sure the shifter boots were loose. The key for me was going real slow with the crane and having extra eyes around. It was a pain but it worked out.

I'm repairing the oil pan but I can not remove it, how do I remove the transmission


Before you remove the transmission and not knowing the condition of your oilpan, I might be able to save you some trouble.
If you have a few leaks in the metal of the oilpan, JB Weld can be used without replacing a pan. If you have a stripped drain hole, there are oversized plugs and rubber expansion plugs for that problem.

Sometimes you need to turn the crankshaft to clear the rods. And you can clear the frame and the oilpump with the oilpan by loosening the motor mounts and trans mounts and lifting the motor and reblocking the motor mounts.

But if you want to still pull the trans out, you will pull the driveshaft, the trans linkage and dipstick pipe. Then unbolt the starter, torque converter, and finally every bolt on the trans case to motor block. Earlier you loosened the trans mount bolts, now the frame crossbar should be unbolted and everything should drop.

How to diagnose an oil pan leak


If you have an automatic trans there should be a metal plate just after the rear seal of the motor. If you can remove the shield and see rust, good. If it has red oil, bad, its the trans. You will be able to see if the rear main of the engine is leaking by the oil on the torque converter and flywheel. You may just need to gently tighten the pan bolts which may loosen by themselves.
