Will i have to remove motor to replace oil pan gasket on a 2001 gmc sonoma 2.2l 5 speed


You may have to loosen the transmission also to get enough room to remove it without taking the motor out. Make sure your pan is not cracked first. Also be careful when lifting the motor as to not damage anything on top of the engine.

How do I replace oil pan gasket?


Do that one or get that done on a lift. If not.... drain the oil & filter, every drop. In a gentle sequence loosen remove every other oil pan bolt . Next loosen, don't remove, the rest of the & slowly take out 1 fm the ft 1 fm the rear, 1 fm the side & keep going until they are all loosen enough to totally remove. The pan may fall by its own weight, if not, a few taps with no bolts will cause it to drop. Work it off around the oil pump & float, remove the gasket when the pan is down clean the engine block of gasket & oil & reinstall the new gasket. I'm not saying your gasket isn't leaking, but I've had many requests to replace pan gaskets & the front or rear seal is leaking. Besides the fact without a lift, power tools & an oil drain, this one is a rough one. Have it Done! Good luck

not the easiest job at home but if you have way to lift the car securely and tools not a problem.
first lift the car and secure.drain the oil.remove the exhaust pipe to clear the oil pan,remove the bolts from oil pan. between the motor and transmission is a small plate.remove the plate to access two more bolt from the oil pan. with big flat screwdriver pray the pan on the back side.you will find lip on block and the pan to insert the pray bar or screwdriver.clean the pan from old gasket.clean the block from old gasket. install new gasket on the pan and insert 4 screw to hold in place.on front of the engine is the timing cover connection.one drop of silicon will seal the gap.place the pan and drive the 4 screw 3-4 turns.install the rest ant slightly tight all across. (ask you auto store for silicone gasket. the old cork is not so good) .tight all screw again.don't over tight.stop if the gasket start to deform out of the pan.replace the oil filter. refill oil and start the car.check for leaks.

I have an oil pan lead in my 2006 dts, how to fix?


I assume you mean an oil pan LEAK. If so either the pan has a hole in it or the gasket is leaking. Either way the pan will have to be removed to repair the hole of replace the gasket. If it is the gasket that is leaking try tightening the oil pan bolts to 10 ft/lbs of torque.

It appears that i have oil dripping from my oil pan area. is there a gasket on the oil pan i need to replace?


oil leaking anywhere on the engine runs down and gets caught on the oil pan lip, builds up runs over and then looks to be an oil pan leak. so what you do is take the thing to a shop with a lift, like an oil change or muffler shop, and ask them to put it up on the lift so the rest of the engine can be easily examined for leaks. if there is no other place above the oil pan with a thin layer of oil on it, then most likely the pan gasket is leaking. before you buy the gasket take a good look at any suspension hardware which could obstruct easy removal of the oil pan. it may require lifting the engine up out of its mounts to get the gasket replaced, so simply snugging up the bolts holding the pan on and living with a small leak may be the way to go.

Leaky oil pan


There are a couple of solutions here.

You can try to retorque the pan bolts and this may slow or fix the leak. This is probably the easiest thing to try.

You may be able to drop the pan down to the cross member and sneak the gasket into place. This is more difficult, but may save having to jack up the engine.

You can't remove structural bar.

If you do decide to lift the engine, you can probably replace the gasket by lifting the engine while everything is still connected.

Good Luck with your project.

Tim

Thanks Ford! You could have made a bolt on crossmember.
