Not usually do you need to cure a pan prior to using it. If you look at any paperwork that may have come with your pans, it usually will tell you to wash the pans in warm soapy water the first time before you use them because the manufacturer puts some sort of "protective coating" on the pans prior to shipping them out. Now if you are using cast iron, the pan paperwork will probably say "pre-seasoned" somewhere in the paperwork. This may be in fact somewhat true, but I would still wash the pan in as hot a water as you can stand, using a stainless steel scrubby with NO SOAP in it at all, then rinse it well, and put it on a burner to get the pan good and hot, then pour a teaspoon or so of oil in it and swish it around and rub it with some papertowels to spread the oil around and up the sides then turn the heat off leaving the pas sit on the burner until it is cold. Wipe it periodically with a dry papertowel while it is cooling down to remove any excess oil.

I have a 98 Dodge Durango, and while driving it will suddenly feel like it is in neutral. When you press on the gas it revs up but you just coast on to the shoulder. I usually turn it off then back on and...


service the transmission with a new filter, if the filter gets plugged up while driving it can cause pressure to drop in trans, when you stop driving the debris in the filter can drop into the pan and clear the filter long enough to run again at least for a while, if the filter change and cleaning out the pan don't cure the problem, you will need to overhaul the transmission

How to fix a oil pan that is loose on a Pontiac Gran Am SE


Take an 8mm socket, rachet and extension, Jack up the car enough to roll under on a creeper or put it up on the lift if you have one and tighten every bolt in the bottom of your oil pan. I don't have the torque specs but make sure each one is snug but not overtightened. It's easy to strip the threads if you over do it. Once you have snugged them all up, take a rag and some WD-40, clean off the pan and all the leaked from around the bolt holes. Start the engine and let it warm up to normal operating temp... Look for leaks. If you still have leaks you may need to drain your oil, remove the pan and replace the gasket. You can also use the blue gasket maker silicon Follow the same steps re-installing the pan, check for leaks and hopefully that will cure it for you.

I have a ford focus 2000 the checkligth is on the cods showmi is po760 can yu heolp mi what is the problem please


Hi there,

Unfortunately, this generation Ford Focus was known to have common auto transmission issues and this code relates to a shift solenoid circuit (there are 6 electric solenoids inside your automatic gearbox). These solenoids are responsible for the shifting behaviour of your automatic transmission.

Trouble Code P0760 = SSC (Shift Solenoid "C") Solenoid Circuit Failure .

SSC circuit fails to provide voltage drop across solenoid. Circuit open or shorted or PCM driver failure during on-board diagnostic. Not all gears present.

This repair is very simple:

The malfunction has ocurred in solenoid "C" circuit, so it will require someone to:

1) Raise front of vehicle and stabilise on suitable axle stands or ramp.
2) loosen transmission pan cover bolts and undo one side of the transmission pan cover only, just enough to drain the trans fluid into a suitable container.
3) once fluid is drained, undo remaining bolts on pan and remove pan from trans
4) all 6 solenoids should be visible - locate Solenoid C. Unplug wiring and test the solenoid with a multimeter to determine if solenoid is within factory spec (you'll need Ford's solenoid spec's to do this).
5) if solenoid C is not to specification, then remove from single bolt holding the solenoid in place and replace with a new solenoid (approx. USD $60 from Ford).
6) Putting pan back on must be done with careful attention as follows:
i) clean the surfaces of the pan & transmission carefully, without damaging any surfaces.
ii) using liquid RTV gasket maker, spread a thin bead along the edge of the pan - just enough to seal the pan, without spilling into the transmission casing.
iii) refit pan and torque down all bolts. Allow the liquid RTV to cure properly (as per intructions on tube).
iv) once RTV has cured, refill transmission with new FORD approved trans fluid (do not use non specified fluid). You will get an idea how much fluid you'll need, compared to the amount drained.
v) Fill up with 75% of the required fluid to begin with - just enough to allow idling of the engine for further checking.
vi) run engine at idle to warm up transmission.
vii) when warm, move gear selector through all gears, then rest lever in Neutral.
viii) check fluid level with dipstick - add approx. 1 cup of additional fluid at a time, until you reach the correct level.

To ensure the pan is sealed correctly, check for trans fluid leaks under the vehicle, during the following week.


Hope this helps....

Transmission pump leaks


Three reasons for leaks out of pump area( really 4 but the pump seal is never the leak)1 someone has not sealed the pan properly and fluid is seeping up through pan bolt hole into bell housing and leaking out.2 pump oring is old and hard due to heat and time (most common)3 someone has repaired a pump oring or rebuilt the transmiision and used a threade rod slide hammer to remove the pump(big no no) and damage the sealing area where the pump bolts seal(can silicone the bolts to fix this).I would pull the bottom pan and clean both surfaces with brake clean and allow the trans to drain for an hour , then apply a 1/8 inch bead of black or ultra grey pematex all the way around tthe clean dry pan( make sure you go to the inside of bolt holes and not the outside) allow the silicone to cure for 5 minutes before you mate the pan with the case.Good luck!

I have a black sticky residue on the non stick surface of my cooks essentials 12 inch frying pan. I can not clean it off and the non stick properties of the pan is gone, I think due to this surface...


Go to epinions.com, type your product and find you are not alone. Besides, as there is no cure to baldness there is no such thing as a perennial non stick pan. All coatings invented eventually succumbs to the wear and tear produced by temperature changes, contact with food and related chemistry, detergents, scrapping, etc. Consider the possibility that some of that non stick material may be ingested unconsciously.

I have an odor coming from my Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator. I have cleaned it top to bottom, inside and out. The odor seems to be coming into the refrigerator through the fan. There is black...


It is the water that is emanating the odor. If you look at the back you will find a drain for this drip pan. If you cant find any then you may like to use a self made mop kind of a thing. A thin stick with some cloth tied to one end. Push it into the opening where you located to water from and dip it into the water and pull the stick and squeeze the water down. You will have to do it a number of times depending on the quantity of water in the pan. Then use a dry cloth the dry up the pan. This should remove the odor. Alternatively you can use a long rubber hose to siphon out the water. BUT, this is not a cure. To cure you may want to call a service personnel.

I have a leak from the oil pan ...of my 1992 mercury topaz and im needing to know what all i will need to do to repair it


You didn't list your engine size so please pick the approriate task:

2.0L Engine
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise the vehicle and support safely with jackstands.
  3. Drain the crankcase of oil.
  4. Remove the attaching bolts securing the oil pan to the engine.
  5. Clean the oil and gasket mating surface completely, and allow to dry.
To install:
  1. Apply a 1/8 in. (3.18mm) bead of silicone sealer D6AZ-19562-B or equivalent between the oil pan and engine crankcase.
  2. Install the oil pan using the attaching bolts. Torque bolt to 5-7 ft. lbs. (7-10 Nm).
  3. Lower vehicle, and fill crankcase with correct amount of engine oil.
  4. Start engine and check for leaks.

2.3L Engine
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise the vehicle and support safely with jackstands.
  3. Drain the crankcase of oil, and drain the cooling system by removing the lower radiator hose.
When draining coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze, and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  1. Remove the roll restrictor if equipped with a manual transaxle.
  2. Disconnect the starter cable.
  3. Remove the starter from the vehicle
  4. Unfasten the bolts securing the rear oil pan to the transaxle case.
  5. If equipped with a manual transaxle, remove the secondary air injection tube at the check valve.
  6. Remove the heater supply tube located at the lower water pump inlet tube assembly.
  7. Loosen the bolts and remove the brackets at the block and water pump inlet tube and A/C compressor line at the pan.
  8. Using a prybar between the engine and body of car, flex engine enough the remove oil pan.
  9. Clean the oil and gasket mating surface completely, and allow to dry.
  10. Clean both mating surfaces of oil pan and cylinder block making certain all traces of RTV sealant are removed. Ensure that the block rails, front cover and rear cover retainer are also clean.
  11. Remove and clean oil pump pick-up tube and screen assembly. After cleaning, install tube and screen assembly.
To install:
  1. Apply a bead of RTV E8AZ-19562-A sealer or equivalent, in the oil pan groove. Completely fill oil pan groove with sealer. Sealer bead should be 0.200 in. (5mm) wide and 0.080-0.150 in. (2.0-3.8mm) high (above oil pan surface) in all areas except the half-rounds. The half-rounds should have a bead 0.200 in. (5mm) wide and 0.150-0.200 in. (3.8-5.1mm) high, above the oil pan surface.
Applying RTV in excess of the specified amount will not improve the sealing of the oil pan, and could cause the oil pickup screen to become clogged with sealer. Use ad equate ventilation when applying sealer.
  1. Install oil pan to cylinder block within 5 minutes to prevent skinning over. RTV needs to cure completely before coming in contact with any engine oil. Ideally, about 1 hour at ambient temperature between 65-75°F (18-24°C) is recommended as a drying time.
  2. Install oil pan bolts lightly until the 2 oil pan-to-transmission bolts can be installed.
  3. Install 2 oil pan-to-transaxle bolts. Tighten to 30-39 ft. lbs. (40-54 Nm) to align oil pan with transaxle. Loosen bolts 1/2 turn.
  4. Tighten all oil pan flange bolts to 15-22 ft. lbs. (20-30 Nm).
  5. Tighten 2 oil pan-to-transmission bolts to 30-39 ft. lbs. (40-54 Nm).
  6. Install brackets for A/C compressor line and water pump inlet tube.
  7. If equipped with a manual transaxle, fasten the air injection tube.
  8. Install the starter and cable.
  9. Lower vehicle.
  10. Install engine oil and coolant.
  11. Connect the negative battery cable.
  12. Start engine and check for coolant and oil leaks.
