An old easy "back yard" solution for this is drain the oil pan/pull it off is easily removed, and use a propane torch and coat hanger to "braisse" the hole. You can use "JB Weld" (sold at any auto parts store and wal-mart) to temporarily plug the hole, but it won't hold too long, may be as short as two weeks, may hold 2 years, it's unpredictable

How to replace oil pump on 1985 ford 3/4 ton truck with small v8 motor


your can either pull the engine to do it, or if you can get or have enough clearnce to drain the oil and remove the oil pan you can do it with the engine still in ,i have done it both way's , eaither way the pan has to come down or off to get to the oil pump. if you don't have enough room when leaving the engine in you can take the motor mount bolts out and use a block of wood and gently jack the engine up to get the room you need to pull the pan down and to get in there and do the work.

Oil coming from bottom of 1996 ford contour. No leak from the motor


If you have recently had your oil changed,the oil filter may be loose or cross threaded.Also if you have had an oil change recently it could just be spilled oil. Make sure your oil filler cap is on tight and the dipstick is on tight. While you are at it check to see how much oil you have actually lost.If it`s not coming from the engine,i would inspect the oil pan gasket and the oil pan itself may have a hole in it.

Oil pan is leaking really bad


If it is leaking at the gasket, remove and replace the gasket.
If it is leaking at a corner from a rust spot, you may be able to repair it if the hole is small with Puddy Epoxy, that sets in 5 minutes and cures in 1 hour or so.

I tried this on a 1998 Ford Taurus that had a difficult to remove oil pan that seemed to drip oil when shut off.

I got a screwdriver and poked a larger hole in the oil pan and made the edges go ragged around the hole.

Then, I sprayed it with brake cleaner to get the oil residue off.
Then, I got a golf ball sized amount of Puddy Epoxy, mixed it by kneeding it in my two hands, then I applied it to the hole. It works great, going on 2 years.

A lot cheaper than a new pan removed and replaced, by the way.

Good luck on this repair.

The oil pan has a hole in it... how do I take the oil pan off?


you may have to lift the motor up a foot to remove it. Its pretty basic. The hard part is making clearance so you can remove it.

Bad oil leak around oil pan, does somebody have an engine diagram for the Dodge 3.0 in this Grand Caravan?


This is what I found on my 1998 with a 3.0 motor Most likely you have a rusted pan with a hole on the passenger side of pan, clean the oil pan real good and inspect it real good and check for small leaks,
Also the transmission pan is also known to rust through on the left side top and bottom, Salt and brime plays heck on all pans and brake lines
