Hi there:

  1. Drain the cooling system.


CAUTIONWhen draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze and are quite likely to 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 bolts attaching the fan shroud to the radiator and position the shroud over the fan.
  2. Remove the upper intake manifold and throttle body (see Fuel System ).
  3. Remove the nuts and lockwashers attaching the engine support insulators to the chassis bracket.
  4. If equipped with an automatic transmission, disconnect the oil cooler line at the left side of the radiator.
  5. Remove the exhaust system.
  6. Raise the engine and place wood blocks under the engine supports.
  7. Drain the crankcase.


CAUTIONThe EPA warns that prolonged contact with used engine oil may cause a number of skin disorders, including cancer! You should make every effort to minimize your exposure to used engine oil. Protective gloves should be worn when changing the oil. Wash your hands and any other exposed skin areas as soon as possible after exposure to used engine oil. Soap and water, or waterless hand cleaner should be used.
  1. Support the transmission with a floor jack and remove the transmission crossmember.
  2. Remove the oil pan attaching bolts and lower the oil pan onto the crossmember.
  3. Remove the two bolts attaching the oil pump pickup tube to the oil pump. Remove the nut attaching the oil pump pickup tube to the No. 3 main bearing cap stud. Lower the pickup tube and screen into the oil pan.
  4. Remove the oil pan from the vehicle.

To install:
  1. Clean the oil pan, inlet tube and gasket surfaces. Inspect the gasket sealing surface for damages and distortion due to overtightening of the bolts. Repair and straighten as required.
  2. Position a new oil pan gasket and seal to the cylinder block.
  3. Position the oil pick-up tube and screen to the oil pump and install the lower attaching bolt and gasket loosely. Install nut attaching to number 3 main bearing cap stud.
  4. Place the oil pan on the crossmember. Install the upper pick-up tube bolt. Tighten the pick-up tube bolts.
  5. Position the oil pan to the cylinder block and install the attaching bolts. Tighten to 10-12 ft. lbs. (13-16 Nm).
  6. Install the transmission crossmember.
  7. Raise the engine and remove the blocks under the engine supports. Bolt the engine to the supports.
  8. Install the exhaust system.
  9. If equipped with an automatic transmission, connect the oil cooler line at the left side of the radiator.
  10. Install the nuts and lockwashers attaching the engine support insulators to the chassis bracket.
  11. Install the upper intake manifold and throttle body (see Fuel System ).
  12. Install the fan shroud.
  13. Fill the crankcase.
  14. Fill and bleed the cooling system.

SOURCE: To change the oil pan gasket in a 93 Tercel

Stock the car doesn't come with an oil pan gasket but you can order one from rockauto.com you don't have to remove the A/C compressor for any of the jobs you listed. If you want to change the timing belt you need to remove the plastic rock guard under the motor on the passenger side. remove the spark plugs and using the socket turn the engine from the crankshaft clockwise until you are at TDC on #1 cyclinder. (compression stroke) Next remove the upper and lower plastic timing belt covers. The idler pulley is the one with the spring. Loosen the nut and remove the spring then you can remove the timing belt. It really isn't that hard to do. Maybe one afternoon.

SOURCE: Need torque specs for oil pan gasket

There likely is a spec for oil pan but unless you are a finatic, you really don't need to know what it is. Simple rule: Don't crank down ******* any fastener. If corners near crank ends have larger fasteners, you can tighten them a bit more than on siderails. Before tightening anything, install all bolts finger tight, to ensure that they are not cross threaded. To avoid warping pan, tighten from the center of the pan, working towards both ends, alternating from side to side as you go. When you are finished, go over it again, using the same amount of force on each bolt. As I said, end bolts can if larger in diameter, be tightened more but be careful not to tighten so much that you will either split or push the gasket out the sides.. Anywhere two gasket ends **** together, I recommend using a sensor -safe dab of silicone. An oil pan is not under any mechanical stress or pressure. I have used this method for many years and NEVER had one leak. If you really need #s, small fasteners get about 12-15in lbs, larger ones about 20.

Removal Procedure

Important: The original oil pan gasket is retained and aligned to the oil pan by rivets. When installing a new gasket, it is not necessary to install new rivets.
DO NOT reuse the oil pan gasket. When installing the oil pan, install a NEW oil pan gasket.

Caution: Refer to Battery Disconnect Caution in Service Precautions.

  • Disconnect the negative battery cable. Refer to Battery Negative Cable Disconnect/Connect Procedure
  • Remove the front differential if equipped with four wheel drive. Refer to Differential Carrier Assembly Replacement in Front Axle.
  • Remove the under body shield from the vehicle
  • Remove the oil pan underbody shield.
  • Remove the cross brace if equipped.
  • Drain the engine oil and remove the engine oil filter. Refer to Engine Oil and Oil Filter Change
  • Remove the lower transmission-to-oil pan bolts
  • Disconnect the oil level sensor electrical connector.
  • Remove two front wiring harness retainer bolts.


10. Remove the engine wiring harness retainer bolts from the engine oil pan.
11. Remove the engine oil cooler pipe to oil pan bolt.
12. Remove the transmission oil cooler pipe retainer and the bolt from the oil pan.
13. Remove the starter motor. Refer to Starter Motor Replacement.
14. Remove the left closeout cover and bolt.
15. Remove the engine oil pan. Refer to Oil Pan Removal.

Installation Procedure

Important: The alignment of the structural oil pan is critical. The rear bolt hole locations of the oil pan provide mounting points for the transmission bellhousing. To ensure the rigidity of the powertrain and correct transmission alignment, it is important that the rear of the block and the rear of the oil pan must NEVER protrude beyond the engine block and transmission bellhousing plane.

How to replace an oil pan gasket on a toyota corrolla 2007?


remove anything in the way of the oil pan that won`t allow it to be lowered. drain the oil, then remove the oil pan holding bolts and you might have to hit the oil pan to get it loose and lower the pan. clean surfaces on the motor and oil pan of gasket material and oil on the gasket matting surfaces install new gasket to pan and install. torque the bolts to 10ft lbs torque I think or until the bolts are tight but the gasket is not being pushed out from between two surfaces.

What all has to be taken off to get to to the oil pan gasket


Oil Pan REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. Drain the crankcase.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Negative battery cable
    • Oil level indicator harness connector, if equipped
    • Exhaust Y-pipe, if needed
    • Transaxle assembly from the vehicle.
    • Oil pan bolts and the oil pan
    To install: NOTE: The oil pan gasket is reusable unless it is damaged. Do not remove the gasket from the oil pan groove unless gasket replacement is required.
  4. Thoroughly clean the inside of the oil pan and the cylinder block contact surface. If the oil pan gasket is being reused, be careful not to damage it. Do not expose the gasket to cleaning solvents.
  5. If a new gasket is being installed, start the gasket into the oil pan groove and work the gasket into the groove in both directions. Once the gasket is exposed to oil, it will expand and no longer stay in the groove without wrinkles. If this condition exists, replace the gasket.
  6. Install or connect the following:
    • Oil pan. Torque the bolts, in sequence, to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
    • Oil level indicator connector, if removed
    • Transaxle assembly, if removed
    • Y-pipe, if removed
    • Flywheel cover, if removed
    • Oil pan drain plug. Torque it to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
    • Negative battery cable
  7. Refill the crankcase.
  8. Run the engine and check for leaks. Fig. 1: Oil pan bolt torque sequence 7922vg08.gif
