SOURCE: how much to change a oil pan gasket for 2001 grand prix 3.8 gt

If you want to repair the oil pan I would also check lower engine mount for leaking oil and cracks in anti sway bar near fitting's. This due to engine mount is oil filled. OEM sway bar is made of tubular steel and they crack easy. Replacement sway bar is solid steel. Here's the kicker. When they pull the lower frame to service oil pan. The engine mount and sway bar are attached to that frame. A honest mechanic should only charge for parts ($35 for mount and $100 for sway bar) and maybe a extra hour. My mechanic did all in 5 hours. FYI gasket is only $35 bucks. Good luck

SOURCE: 2004 pontiac grand prix 71000 milesis burning oil.

How many miles do you go before you have to add oil. GM actually states that one quart of oil every 2000 miles is considered normal. I personally think that one quart every 3000 miles is normal esp at higher miles. As an engine wears things such as valve seals and rings get worn and allow oil to seep past and will burn, this can be in such small amounts that you will not notice the smoke and is normal engine wear. The life cycle of an engine is considered 100k miles by the designers, even though we all know they will go far beyond that. If your car has the 3.1 or the 3.4 liter engine you may want to check in the engine coolant for signs of oil, it is a common problem for the oil to seep into the cooling system but is not usually enough to make a noticable drop in oil level. If you are only using about one qt every 3k miles or so i would not worry about it if you have had it checked for leaks already.

Pontiac stopped installing the fuel filter on the rail in 2006. The 2004-2005 models had a fuel filter on the driver's side under the rear passenger seat area clipped to the frame. 2006 beyond the fuel filter is part of the fuel pump unit inside the tank.

Oil leaking above filter could it be oil sending unit


Could be the oil pressure switch. But ive also seen the oil filter housing leaking on thesed 2.2L accord engines. If its coming from even higher then all of that then its the valve cover gasket leaking. i Suggest cleaning off the engine first with brake cleaner to really see exactly where it is coming from

My kia optima leaks engine oil around the filter


remove the filter and be sure the is a rubber gasket attached, if so rub a bit of oil on it before replacing, being certain that interior threads are clean and not stripped ( if so replace filter) only turning hand tight, no not overly tighten.

Need to remove oil filter housing - oil leaking out. How do you remove it? Bolt location, etc. The car just dumped almost all it's oil in the driveway while it was idling. The leak appears to be around the...


This is not an easy repair in your driveway, but can be done. 1st thing, have you checked to see if the oil filter is the issue or is it the drain plug? If its the oil filter housing gasket, you will need to remove the filter. The housing is held in place by the threaded bolt assy that the filter screws onto. You will need to remove that bolt, remove the coolant hoses. Clean the engine block surfaces, for the new gasket to mate to, clean the cooling housing surfaces, install the bolt through the housing, and install the gasket onto it. Then install the bolt/housing into the block and tighten the bolt. Install the coolant hoses, oil filter. Fill the cooling system with the coolant that you removed. Fill the engine with oil, start and check for leaks.

I have a 91 Jeep Cherokee 4 cylinder. It is leeking above where the oil filter fits onto the chassis. I'm not sure what this part of the engine is called or how to fix the leak. Can a basic oil change...


I am assuming the oil filter is down low on the engine, since most of them are.

When you see an oil leak near the bottom of the engine, it is often difficult to determine where the oil is actually coming from. It could be leaking from the valve cover gaskets up higher on the engine and then running down to where you see it. A competent repair facility would likely clean off the engine, start the engine, and then try to see where the oil appears.

Furthermore, what you are seeing may not be oil. Power steering fluid can also leak and run down toward the bottom of the engine.

I wouldn't trust a basic oil change place to diagnose this and do the proper repair. The expertise of the personnel at these places is often minimal.

Oil leak from oil filter


There is an "O" ring between the Oil filter housing and the adapter that will leak as well. Remove the oil filter and check inside of the housing for a large nut. Remove the nut and separate the adapter from the housing. Check the "o" ring between them and replace with new "o" ring. That's where mine is leaking and I've read a couple of others that had the same problem. The old ring started out "round" and has, over time, become flat. The new ring should start out with a flatter cross section that will seal better. Good luck! (Easy Fix, but finding the "o" ring may be a challenge. Check for the ring at the Honda Dealer as the Passport is the same basic vehicle.) Do it during the next oil change........

Oil Leak from Spindle


The stud that the oil filter screws onto holds the filter housing to the engine and there is an O ring between the housing and engine that leaks and is common on honda's. Removing the oil filter and then the stud will release the housing and can replace O ring which cost about six dollars at dealer.
