There's about a dozen bolts that hold the pan on. You'll have to drain the engine and transmisson oil to change the pan.

Check this drawing out.

Good luck

Replace oil pan gasket

Big job for a DIYer. Depending on whats under the vehicle you could be removing all kinds of skid plates, steering components before you could gain access the oil pan. If your lucky enough to gain access, remove all bolts around it outsides then go down to your local parts house and get a good quality set of gaskets. Next give it a good cleaning making sure to check the bolt holes to see if they have been bent inward. When replacing the gaskets you may want to use something like a silicone to help keep the gaskets to stay in place but whatever you do only a small amount should be used. Reverse the process and your set to go. . . well somewhere!

98 isuzu trooper leaks a/t fluid

No, but take rags and wipe off all the oil. Leave the skid plates off for the time being. Use jack stands or blocks to raise car so you can be under it. You need to run the engine so the transmission pump is working, then you will probably see where the oil is leaking from-possibly the pan gasket, maybe that component on the oil pan, or check if it is coming from higher up and collecting on the pan. Hope you find it. Pan gaskets are very easy to change. But you will have to replace the transmission fluid, as about 6-8 quarts will drain when you remove the pan. If you have to change the gasket, might as well change the transm. fluid filter as well-it's right underneath the pan, in most cases.

How to replace oil pan

5.2 liter V8 engine?

Remove the four front skid-plate bolts holding the front skid plate, using a ratchet and socket. Remove the skid plate.

Pull the plastic splash shield away from the vehicle, loosening the retaining clips. Remove the splash shield.

  • Place an oil drain container under the oil pan. Loosen the drain fitting with a wrench until oil drains from the pan. When oil is done draining, tighten the drain fitting.

  • Disconnect the electrical connections running to the starter motor. Remove the starter motor mounting bolts with a ratchet and socket, then remove the starter motor.
  • Remove the oxygen sensor socket from the exhaust pipe, using a wrench.
  • Remove the exhaust manifold bolts where the exhaust meets the manifold on both sides, using a ratchet and socket
  • Place an jack under the transmission to support it. Remove the pressure on the transmission crossmember.

  • Remove the bolts that hold the transmission crossmember in place, using a ratchet and socket. Then remove the crossmember. Place a jack stand under the transmission to keep the transmission from falling off the jack if hit. Once removed, the exhaust will hang down, allowing enough room to remove the oil pan.
  • Disconnect the oil level sensor and the nut retaining the transmission cooling lines, using a wrench.
  • Remove the oil pan bolts with a ratchet and socket, then remove the oil pan and gasket.
  • Clean the mounting surfaces of the new oil pan and engine block. Make sure what ever you use to clean the surfaces dosn't gouge the metal.
  • Place a coat of RTV (gasket) sealer on the engine block where the pan will meet the rear main cap.
  • Place the new gasket on the pan and push the new oil pan into place. Finger tighten the oil pan mounting bolts to hold it in place. Tighten the bolts with a torque wrench to 18 ft-lbs. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE BOLTS! Doing so will cause the gasket to deform and create leaks!

  • Connect the oil level sensor and the nut retaining the transmission cooling lines, using a wrench.
  • Place the exhaust back into position and replace the transmission crossmember bolts and crossmember with a ratchet and socket.
  • Remove the jack supporting the transmission.
  • Connect the exhaust back to both sides of the manifold, tightening the bolts with a torque wrench to 20 ft-lbs.
  • Attach the oxygen sensor socket to the exhaust pipe with a wrench.

  • Replace the starter motor by installing the starter motor mounting bolts with a ratchet and socket. Connect the electrical connections to the starter motor that were disconnected during removal.
  • Push the retaining clips on the plastic splash shield into the appropriate retaining clip holes.
  • Replace the front skid plate by replacing the four front skid plate bolts with a ratchet and socket.
  • Fill the engine with 5 quarts of oil. Make sure to check the level on the dipstick to find the exact level when filling.

    My high milage 2000 GMC Sierra has an oil pressure problem when cold the pressure is good but as it gets hot it drops to the point the low oil pressure light comes on. I believe it is either the oil pump...

    The oil pump is on the front of the engine. the pan and front of the engine has to come off. the crankshaft drives the pump. the cross member bolts in. you may check the oil pick up tube first. sometimes a mechanic has a bore scope and can go up in the oil pan drain hole and look at the screen. Its a lot of work/money to be guessing. good luck

    Oil change

    I own a 2005 Xterra Off Road and if yours is an "Off Road" model, you have skid plates. Your oil filter is located behind a little door on the bottom of one of the skids. Two screws hold the door on. As for the oil pan, it is most likely just hidden by a skid as well. It will be on the very bottom of the engine.

    1999 Ford Explorer Oil Leak

    You most likely hit a curb, the pan is cast aluminum and will break like glass if you hit a curb, the pan can be changed without removing the engine, it is very time consuming, but it can be done.
