Oil Pan Replacement, Hard?!?
Posted 11 July 2003 - 03:31 PM
If it isn't that hard to replace, is it hard to find the parts for this?
All comments appreciated, thanks guys!

It isnt too awful of a job if you are patient. Get a long large tipped phillips screwdriver and get a 1/4" socket set with a wobble joint and a short 10mm socket and go to town. Make sure you have a pretty long extension for the rt and left rear corners of the pan and dont strip out the rear center bolts.
TORQUE TO SPECS!!!! Its a very small amt of torque.
Felpro makes a gasket or you can get one at the dealer. You might be able to pound it out from the inside but i doubt it. Fix ASAP as this is could be causing oil circulation problems.
Finding used parts might be a little hard but if you try car-part.com thats usually good or try posting in the marketplace here asking if somebody has one.

Would the Chilton Manual I have give any type of step by step instructions for this?
