How do you remove the oil pan on a 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada to change the oil pump, I had all of the bolts out of the oil pan and all of the transmission bolts out and the oil pan would not come loose what...


The pan is glued to the bottom of the block with an RTV-type sealant. You need to carefully pry the pan away from the block, because it is easily bent and bending can cause leaks. Some suggest hitting the side of pan with a soft rubber mallet to break the seal. In this as well, take care not to bend the pan.

HOW DO I CHANGE MY OIL PAN SEAL


Take out the oil drain plug and drain the oil from the engine(let it drain for about an hour), use a small flat head screwdriver to break the seal between the oil pan and the engine, take it off, make sure you get all of the seal and gunk off of the engine and the pan where the seal goes, replace the seal and add any sealant if required and replace the pan, tighten the bolts from one side to the other and then one side to the other until you tighten them all(like you would the lug nuts on a car's tire). add 4.5 quarts of oil, let it sit for a while and then run the car at idle for around 10 minutes. Done.

Hi I have a 2000 vw beetle I had the oil changed and it all leaking twice as soon as they put it in it came out. Can you help me with this problem.


Have it towed back to the shop, it sounds like they installed the filter improperly or left the drain plug loose.

I'm trying to remove my oil pan on a 2000 Silverado 1500 with a 4.3L V6. I've removed all of the bolts, the starter, the transmission cooling lines, the oil level sensor bracket, the front wire bracket,...


I am not sure, But there could be six more bolts to remove. They will be on the side of the pan, about half way up. three on each side. Sorry for guessing, I work on to many makes and models. Also the gaskets do hold the pan on tight sometimes. If there are no extra bolts then carefully pry it off.

Can't get oil pan loose on 2000 beetle 2.0 - all bolts are off and can move it some with a pry bar, but it seems stuck where it attaches to the transaxle(?)


Make sure you again have all bolts removed from the pan and look if the pan attaches to the transaxle in any way, its possible the sealant is still attached in that area not allowing the pan to separate from the block, however be very careful using a pry bar with the oil pan, if the soft aluminum has any gouges on the oil pan mating surface will result in a oil leak when re-assembled......

Hi, I just got my oil changed for my 2000 VW Beetle about a month ago, and my oil level is already by the add line.. is this normal? is there something wrong with my car?


Sounds like your burning oil or leaking oil, how many miles have you put on the car since you last got the oil changed? Check under your hood for any fresh oil leaks around your valve cover gasket, under you car around the oil pan, also make sure the service station that changed your oil tightened your oil filter and theres not a leak there, make sure your oil drain plug on your oil pan is not leaking or loose, if you cannot find any of the above your most likely burning oil due to worn piston rings or valve guide seals......

I have 1995 toyota camry with 2.2 liter engine.I installed a new oil pan gasket,and valve cover gasket,cause there was alot of oil leaking from that area.All the work was done about two months ago.there...


I have the same car and the same problem. I can see the oil shooting out at the (upside down) rear, right side of the oil pan. This side of the oil pan is covered by a piece of plastic foam. There are no bolts on this side of the pan. Toyota recommends grey Formagaskit to seal the pan. The natural flow for this leak is all over the bell housing. The piece of plastic foam is attached to bell housing inspection cover. Good Luck!!!

2000 VW Beetle Cracked oil pan near drain.


The bolts next to the trans require you to bend your allen wrench to reach them. Espically when you install the new one. Other than that it is easy.
