Hmmm. Did "they check it with an OBD-II code reader. If the MIL is on the system needs to have the trouble codes read. If "they" can't do it you can take your car to NAPA or any other large auto parts chain to have it read for free. I am sure rusty pipes wont set off the light unless the rust is on the inside, causing cloggs. There are no rust sensors. Have a good day!

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 to remove an oil pan on 99 ford taurus


This is a really time consuming and fairly difficult job to do due to the fact you have to remove so many things just to get to the oil pan. I have done this before and it took me a couple hard days of work to get it finished. I would really recommend taking it to a shop having it done by professionals. It really should be done up on a lift and requires you to remove the exhaust system, a couple of O2 sensors , the y pipe and catalytic converter assembly, the torque converter cover plate, and the starter just to get to the oil pan. Removing and reinstalling the oil pan itself was fairly easy but I had a really hard time removing the bolts from the exhaust system. The exhaust flange connecting the y pipe to the flex pipe had to be cut off and a new flange had to be welded on to each side due to the bolts being so rusted and corroded they hardly even looked like bolt anymore. If you are still wanting to do it yourself just let me know and I will give you the step by step directions to get the oil pan off. Also you would have to let me know which engine you have in your taurus the 24v DOHC or the 12v OHC. I hope this helps you out.

1999 Ford Taurus GL Wagon 3.0 V6 178K - Two issues. 1 - oil pan - slight leak due to worn oil pan gasket, probably cork. Worn rusted spot on the bottom of the pan. I have a replacement pan from a salvage...


yes the exhaust has to come down. 6 or 7 bolts no big deal.Didnt your mechanic tell you that? why isnt he replacing the pan for you?Why would you buy a pan from a salvage yard, they are cheap from aftermarket sources, and if it leaks when you are done, tough luck.. turning the ck engine light is not solving anything. your trans has a problem and the sooner its fixed, the less it may cost you.

How do I replace the oil pan gasket on a 2001 GMC Yukon XL?


Changing the oil pan gasket on a GMC Yukon XL is realtively simple, but does require removal of the exhaust pipe. You will need a new oil pan gasket and a new exhaust pipe flange gasket.
Put the car on ramps or jacks to access the undercarriage.
Remove the exhaust pipe by removing the 3 nuts holding the exhaust pipe flange to the exhaust manifold. These nuts often rust and prior application of penetrating oil may be required to remove them without damage. Once the pipe is unbolted, work the exhaust system loose from the hanging brackets. In most cases the entire system does not have to be removed since there is enough room to remove the pan with only the front hangers removed.
Drain the oil from the engine
Remove the 10 mm bolts holding the pan to the block.
Remove the old gasket material and scrape any remaining gasket from the block and pan.
Install the new gasket. Forma-Gasket or a similar product may be used in small quantities to "glue" the new gasket in place and prevent shifting while the pan is reattached to the block.
Reinsall the 10 mm bolts in a cross pattern to ensure the gasket is compressed evenly. Do not overtighten the bolts.
Replace the pipe to flange gasket between the exhaust pipe and the exhaust manifold with a new part.
Reattach the exhuast pipe to the hangers.
Install the 3 bolts connecting the pipe flange to the exhaust manifold.
Fill the engine with oil.

Hole in oil pan


Yes you can do it in the car.The only thing that may hinder you is you have to remove the Y-pipe and the nuts on the studs may be extremely rusted,so make sure you soak them really good with PB Blaster or eqivalent before trying to take them loose.
