To get the oilpan off a 1994 Accord, you'll need to unbolt the downpipe from the header, unbolt the brace holding the downpipe to the block, and remove the exhaust hangers from near the PS rack. This will allow you do drop the downpipe out of the way to get a better view of what your doing. Plus it makes it nice when your putting the oil pan back up there. You'll also need to remove the center beam of the from subframe.

There is a plate at the bottom/side of the tranny, you'll need to remove that to get to a couple of the nuts on the oil pan. Maybe this is what you're referring to? You should be able to remove the nuts/bolts and drop the pan after that. Sometimes you'll need to tap the pan with a rubber mallet to break it loose from the block/gasket.

-----------
When reinstalling, put the 6 nuts finger tight first to hold the oil pan up, then install all the nuts and bolts starting from the middle of the oil pan going around in a clockwise rotation. Tighten the nuts and bolts in three steps, gradually working up to 10lb-ft. Do not over tighten as that can cause distortion of the gasket and cause leaking.

How do you remove rear axle from 1995 ford ranger 2 wheel drive need to replace oil seal


Raise the vehicle and properly support it. Remove the wheel and drum. Remove the rear diff cover, have a drain pan underneath to catch the gear oil. Place the trans in nuetral, chalk the front wheels to keep vehicle from moving if you forget to put it back into park befor you lower the vehicle. Rotat the differential until you see the bolt that holds the diff pin in place. Remove the bolt, 5/16 or 8 mm I believe. You can then remove the diff pin, do not rotate the diff with the diff pin removed! Push the axle in, you can then remove the C-clip that holds the axle to the side gear, it will usuall drop or just fall out. Pull the axle out of the rear diff and replace the seal. Put everything back together. Use black or grey RTV to reseal the diff cover making sure o clean up both surfaces as best you can. Put trans in park. Lower the vehicle. Remove the fill plug from the side of the differential and fill with gear lube until lube comes out the hole. Reinstall the plug and your good to go. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

How to get the tranmission pan unscrewed to change Gasket 1984 chevy c10


If you are going to change the gasket, you should also change the filter at the same time, especially if it hasn't been done recently. You will need a large drain pan to catch oil in because there is no drain plug. Remove the bolts down both sides of the trans pan, 1/2" I believe, and loosen the back ones 3 or 4 turns. Loosen and slowly remove the bolts on the front of the pan because oil will start to drain from there. Once the oil has drained remove the back bolts and drop the pan. clean it out good and check for "stuff". It's normal to see silver filings in the oil but an excessive amount or actual pieces indicate a problem. Two screws should remove the filter. Replace it and put the new gasket on and set the pan in place. Bolt it on. Torque specs for these bolts are 12-13 ft.-lbs for the Turbo 350 and 400. The 700R4 is torqued to 18 ft.-lbs.

If you have trouble getting at the rear bolts on the trans pan, you may need to unbolt the trans mount and lift the tailshaft a little with a jack to get enough room to get it there. Be gentle doing it.Hope this helps.

How do u take off the oil pan on a 1999 awd bravada 4.3


Hello skullz, this is a fairly big task but it can be done in your driveway. Take your time, keep track of all your parts you remove. Use masking tape and a sharpie to label stuff if you feel like it will make easier to reinstall....These steps are for a 99 blazer 4x4 with an aluminum pan. You wont need to do some of the shift linkage removal due to the AWD and electronics the Olds has.

Disconnect battery and remove battery tray. Disconnect shift cable at actuator. Raise and support vehicle.

Remove underbody shield from steering linkage and engine oil pan. Drain crankcase. Remove starter motor.

Remove oil cooler pipes and both front wheels. Disconnect electrical connector and remove wiring harness bracket at shift cable housing.

Remove 3 shift cable housing bolts and disconnect shift cable from differential carrier. Remove both front drive axles. Remove differential housing.

Remove 10 oil pan bolts, 2 nuts at crankshaft rear oil seal and remove 2 transmission to oil pan bolts....Remove oil pan from vehicle....When you reinstall & tighten the oil pan bolts, start in the middle of the pan and go back to the bellhousing, directly across from each bolt---left, right, left right...then, from the middle towards the front of engine, right, left, right left...Torque to 18 ft/lbs

Good luck... if you tackle this job its a fun one....

    • Transmission cover
    • Oil pan drain plug and drain the engine oil into a suitable container
    • Remote oil filter pipe adapter
    • Remote oil filter hose clip bolt on oil pan
    • Starter wire harness bracket stud
    • Transmission oil cooler pipes (if equipped)
    • Access plugs for oil pan rear nuts
    • Transmission to oil pan bolts
    • Oil pan nuts and bolts gm_truck_43_ol-pn_ol-lvl-snsr.gif

      NOTE: The low oil level sensor is not reusable.
    • Remove and discard the engine oil level sensor (if applicable) gm_truck_43_ol-pn_blts.gif

    • The oil pan
    • The oil pan gasket
  2. Discard the oil pan gasket.
  3. Clean all sealing surfaces on the engine and the oil pan.
To Install:
Note: Whenever the transmission and the engine oil pan are removed from the engine at the same time install the transmission before the oil pan. This is to allow for the proper oil pan alignment. Failure to achieve the correct oil pan alignment can result in transmission failure.
  1. Apply a 0.197 inch (5 mm) wide and 1.0 inch (25 mm) long bead of adhesive GM P/N 12346141 (Canadian P/N 10953433) or equivalent to both the right and left sides of the engine front cover to engine block junction at the oil pan sealing surfaces. gm_truck_43_ol-pn_ahsv_loc_f.gif

    gm_truck_43_ol-pn_ahsv_loc_r.gif

  2. Apply a 0.197 inch (5 mm) wide and 1.0 inch (25 mm) long bead of adhesive GM P/N 12346141 (Canadian P/N 10953433) or equivalent to both the right and left sides of the crankshaft rear oil seal housing to engine block junction at the oil pan sealing surfaces. Note: Always install a new oil pan gasket. The oil pan gasket and oil pan must be installed and the fasteners tightened while the adhesive is still wet to the touch.
  3. Install the new oil pan gasket into the groove in the oil pan. Note: The oil pan alignment must always be flush or forward no more than 0.011 inch (0.3mm) from the rear face of the engine block.
  4. Install or connect the following:
    • The oil pan onto the engine block
      1. Press the oil pan gasket into the grooves of the engine front cover and crankshaft rear oil seal housing
      2. Slide the oil pan back against a suitable straight edge
    • The oil pan bolts and nuts, but do not tighten
  5. Measure the pan-to-transmission housing clearance using a feeler gage and a straight edge. gm_truck_43_ol-pn_trnz_clrc.gif

    • Use a feeler gage to check the clearance between the oil pan-to-transmission housing measurement points
      1. If the clearance exceeds 0.011 inch 0.3mm) at any of the 3 oil pan-to-transmission housing measurement points (A), then repeat the step until the oil pan-to-transmission housing clearance is within the specification
      2. The oil pan must always be forward of the rear face of the engine block
    gm_truck_43_ol-pn_trq-sqc.gif

  6. Tighten the oil pan bolts and nuts in sequence
    • Torque to: 18 ft lb (25 Nm).
  7. Measure the clearance between the 3 oil pan-to-transmission housing measurement points in order to ensure proper alignment.
  8. Install or connect the following:
    • A new oil pan drain plug seal (O-ring) onto the oil pan drain plug
    • Oil pan drain plug into the oil pan
      1. Torque to: 18 ft lb (25 Nm)
      NOTE: The low oil level sensor is not reusable.
      gm_truck_43_ol-pn_ol-lvl-snsr.gif

    • New low oil level sensor
      1. Torque to: 115 in lb (13 Nm)
    • Transmission to oil pan bolts.
      1. Torque to: 35 ft lb (47 Nm)
    • Access plugs for the oil pan rear nuts
    • Starter wire harness bracket stud
    • Transmission oil cooler pipes (if equipped)
    • Remote oil filter pipe adapter
    • Oil filter hose clip bolt to the oil pan
    • Transmission cover and bolts.
    • Starter motor
    • Front differential assembly
    • Oil level indicator
  9. Fill the engine with oil.
  10. Connect the negative battery cable.
