I have not pulled an oil pan on the model, however, most oil pans can be removed by removing the motor mount bolts and raising the engine up rather than pulling it, which is much less work.
I have purchased a Chilton's manual, and it says that the motor has to be pulled in order for the oil pan gasket to be replaced. I am actually going to pick up an oil pan gasket for my 1997 Mountaineer 5.0l tomorrow. My husband will be doing most of the work, but the Chilton's manual says that the engine has to be completely removed from the vehicle. I have talked to a few other people who say you can just take off motor mounts and lift motor up about 4 inches, but I don't see how a person is going to be able to work around all the other parts. It would be a lot easier and less hassle really to just pull the motor to replace the oil pan gasket.
To replace the thermostat on a 1988 535i, first locate the top radiator hose and remove the end connected to the motor. Take out the old thermostat and use gasket cleaner to remove the old gasket. Then replace the gasket and thermostat exactly as it was when it came out. Tighten up the radiator hose over the thermostat.
the cost of the gasket and about four to six hours of work don't let repairman buy gasket as it cost more of his time the average person can do the job in a day (slow) with the MOTOR Manual it"s a little harder with a chilton's (cheapo) libraries normally have the "motor" book copier of five or so pages twenty dollar wrench set and save 65 $ per hour as you probably don't earn that much >
The head gasket is one of the things in a car that it needs in order for the car to run properly. If the head gasket gets damaged, then it could cause the entire motor of the car to not work. There are ways to tell if the head gasket is damaged and there are some causes for the head gasket to get damaged.One of the signs that the head gasket in a car is bad is the color under the oil cap. A yellow milky substance that is under the oil cap and in the oil itself is an indication that the head gasket is bad. This means the gasket itself is broken and is allowing moisture and other fluids in the oil. If you see this in your car, take it to a mechanic immediately before it damages the motor more than necessary. It is not as expensive to replace the head gasket as it is to replace the motor. If you have recently had the motor replaced, keep an eye on the oil for this yellow substance. Sometimes the gasket that was replaced in the motor does not fit well and it will crack when the motor has been running.Another sign that the head gasket may be bad is smoke coming from the tail pipe of the car. This is not the only reason why your car would have smoke coming from it, but it is a good indicator. If the smoke is black, this would especially be a reason for concern as this is coming from the motor and the oil. Take your car to a garage and get them to inspect the car to see if there are any leaks. If there are no leaks, then the next thing would be to check the gasket. The gasket itself can be changed easily if it is on top of the motor, which most of them are. The motor would not need to be removed, keeping the cost of the repair down.
Thermostat. First, drain the radiator at least part way so the coolant level is below the thermostat housing. In most motors, it is where the top radiator hose connects to the motor. There is a dome over it with two or three bolts holding it down. Take the bolts out and gently pry the dome off. Some have a rubber gasket around the thermostat and will just lift off. If there is a paper gasket under the dome, clean it and the top of the motor of the old gasket, replace the thermostat and gasket using gasket sealer on both sides of the gasket. Put the dome back on and refill the radiator.
