SOURCE: replacing oill pain on 2004 Chrysler Pacifica

If you fequnt any quick lube places they use air tools to remove the drain plug and it often strips the threads in the oil pan. So in answer to your question, yes the oil pan needs to be replaced or else the iol leaks out at a pretty fast rate. I would suggest gettting this and future oil changes done at your local Chrysler dealer.

SOURCE: Removal of oil pan?

The car has three mounts in a triangle configuration. The front trans mount, the passenger side motor mount and the rear motor mount. I do not know if anyone has ever successfully raised the engine to slide the pan out, but remember, if you do this, the pan goes back on with anaerobic gasket maker on it, so make sure you can slide it out with grating on the underside of the block. If you can't, then it will likely be impossible to get back in place without smearing the gasket maker all over and making a heck of a mess. The commonly accepted way to remove the pan is to remove the two front subframe bolts and allow the subframe to drop enough to get the clearance you require. The bolts are 18 mm heads and are really torqued on there so you will need a serious breaker bar and cheater bar to go with it. USE SOLID JACKSTANDS or BETTER YET, RAMPS to do this. The force you will need to apply can take the car right off a single jack.

SOURCE: oil leak at the bottom of the oil pan.

Dear Sir,
Here is the oil leaking Problem Identifying Technique

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket are common.

  • The intake manifold plenum gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption/burning and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.
  • External oil leaks from valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets (front or rear), and the rear crankshaft (rear main) seal area are common. The rear main seal is an unlikely source. Normally, the bearing cap mating surfaces (as well as the sealing surface between the oil pan and bearing cap) are the source for the leaks.
  • Engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from the intake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.
  • If the oil filter casing shows signs of distortion from excessive oil pressure, the oil pump should be replaced.
  • Often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
  • Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

    SOURCE: removing the oil pan from a 1994 vw jetta

    you have to remove the oil pan without the gasket because the gasket is attached to your oil pan baffle and that can't be removed until you unbolt your oil pump. i pried the **** out of mine until i realized the gasket couldn't come with it. no haynes manual will explain it as simple as it could be, i hate those books

    How do I change my oil pan gasket on my 95 ford Thunderbird, thank you first time car owner


    Lift your car and place on jack stands. Then drain engine oil from pan. If there is/are any other steering or suspension components under oil pan, remove these first. Then, begin removing all bolts that hold pan in place. There should be a few bolts that come from the rear of the transmission section that also hold engine oil pan. Remove these. Once all bolts are removed, use a rubber mallet to tap oil pan until is breaks loose. If hard to remove, use a pry bar or flat head screw driver to pry oil pan off. Install in reverse order.

    How do you change a gasket on the oil pan I have a 99 Chevy Cavalier


    Drain the oil and remove the screws/bolts that hold the pan into place.

    Then use a flat-blade screwdriver to gently prise the pan free.

    Clean both mating surfaces of pan and block - remove all traces of the old gasket.

    Smear some sealant compound on the oil pan - this will hold the new gasket in place. Put the new gasket onto the oil pan and align the bolt holes. Lift the pan into place and tighten the bolts.

    Too much oil in engine


    Must be the drain plug for the oil pan. Take a small screw driver to start and tap it between the bolt and pan. Then start loosening the bolt. It should start to back out. Go to a bigger screw driver if needed. Usually once you get it to the good thread it will come out. take it slowly. Once out, you can get an oversized plug to put back in it. It's self tapping. At the autoparts store.

    YOU NEED TO BUY CORRECT SIZE NEW OIL DRAIN PLUG.

YOU DRILL BIT HAS TO STRAIGHT WHILE DRILLING HOLE DEAD CENTER OF BROKEN BOLT YOU NEED TO MEASURE LENGHT OF OIL DRAIN PLUG BOLT. THEN USE A PIECE TAPE ON DRILL BIT WRAP A PIECE TAPE AROUND DRILL BIT THE DEPT YOU NEED TO DRILL THROUGH BOLT. LIKE I SAY THIS JOB TAKE SKILL AND A STRAIGHT HAND. BECAREFUL WITH DRILL AND WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES. DONT DO THIS FIX IF YOU NOT SURE OF MECHANIC SKILLS YOU WILL EITHER DAMAGE THE OIL PAN OR FIX THE PROBLEM.

    My 2005 Chevy Cavalier is severely leaking oil from a bolthole on the bottom of the oil pan. It is not the oil plug hole and there are a few holes like it without bolts in them but there is only one...


    SOUND LIKE HOLE IN OIL PAN IF THE OIL PAN DRAIN PLUG NOT LOOSE OR MISSING AND THE UPPER PAN BOLTS HOLES NOT MISSING A BOLT CAUSE LEAKING.MORE LIKELY YOU HAVE HOLE IN THE OIL PAN.

    New lug nut installed at Walmart to remedy oil leak caused by stripping is not working. Still experiencing leakage. Would like to avoid buying a new oil pan and lug nut. Read that a self-tapping oil...


    That is a judgement call on your part. The self tapping bolt will put a small amount of metal shavings into the oil pan where (hopefully) the magnet inside used to collect filings from engine wear in your oil will grab them. If it doesnt, the metal shaving could cause engine damage. Bring old bolt with you to get the closest possible match. (There is also no guarantee it will tap/seal correctly or withstand being removed/re-installed anfter many oil changes.)

    Best solution is to drain oil, remove oil pan, use a threaded insert to restore the bolt to the original one's size and get a new bolt of the o-ring sealing type. This you can do yourself, threaded insert kit + gasket+bolt +oil around $50

    If somebody changed oil on a 1997 Honda accord coupe is there a possiblity they can damage the oil pan gasket?


    Not likely. The oil is drained from the oil drain plug in the bottom of the oil pan. To damage the oil pan gasket, someone would just about have to remove the oil pan, a big job! There are probably 16 to 24 bolts or more holding the pan into place. During a routine oil change, there is no reason to mess with the bolts, with the possible exception of trying to reduce leakage by giving the bolts a little snug up.

    Stripped out oil plug


    You can have the oil pan re-tapped, which mean they can re-thread the oil pan for a slightly over sized oil pan plug. There are different size oil plug and just get one size slightly larger and have a shop re tap the oil pan for the larger oil plug and there you have it, good as new. keep in mind that I would make sure i use lots of grease on the tap tool to ensure i get most of the aluminum filling on the tap and not in the pan. Good luck and this should only cost you 1 hour of the shop rate or you can do it your self if you have to. You can loan out the tap tool from Auto Zone and pick up a larger oil pan plug there too. Be safe friend
