Why would a 1995 Chevy Monte Carlo 3.4 keep leaking oil?

mine was leaking pretty bad. found out that on the 3.4 engine, there had been a design change on distributor location. originally it was on the back side of engine. when they changed this, they put a 'plug' in its place. plug always starts leaking. i took mine and lifted the 'plug' and used a gasket from a distributor. had to cut one side so that you could slip it around the plug, put gasket sealer on it and my leaking has dramatically decreased. not stopped. but not putting a quart in a week. the leak is alomost non exixtent

Replace oil pan gasket on Mazda 2000 protege?

First both the vehicle and engine will need to be lifted and supported. The engine oil pans will need to unbolted, with care not to strip the heads or block. Once the pan is off, the engine block should be cleaned of any residual gasket material. The oil pan should be run through a parts a cleaner. Reinstallation will require a new gasket and possibly sealer. Bolts should not be over torqued during install. The vehicle can then be filled with fresh oil and a new oil filter. Start the vehicle to check for leaks.

How do you change the motor mounts on a 1999 Chevy Blazer?

This job is of skilled to moderate difficulty. It will require the vehicle to be safely lifted and the engine to be supported. Once lifted and the engine supported the two engine mounts can be unbolted. It would help to have an air wrench due to the torque involved. There should be two bolts retaining each mount. Once removed the mounting surfaces should be cleaned and degreased. The new mounts can then be replaced.

How do you change an oil pan gasket on a 1999 Ford Ranger 3.0L?

You need to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library. I just spent the last 2 weekends trying to do this. My installed gasket was pushing itself out at the front of the engine under the camshaft. I jacked up the engine as far as possible, and the pan wouldn't come out - the only way of doing it (3 friends and I all agree on this) is to pull the engine. A Ford dealership quoted me $800 to change the gasket out. Good luck Correct answer: The 1999 Ford Ranger 3.0L oil pan is removable by unhooking the motor mounts and jacking the engine. If it is not DIS ignition, you may need to remove the distributor so it doesn't get damaged during lift. Remove right side brake caliper, axle I-beam and starter. Engine needs to be lifted 2 inches and pan will just clear the frame and the oil pump. The 1999 Ford Ranger 4.0L oil pan requires the engine to be removed in order to service the oil pan.

How can you change the oil pan on a 2003 Mitsubishi eclipse GS?

The removal and replacement of an oil pan is a moderate to skilled level installation. The vehicle should be safely shop lifted or placed on rated jack stands (never a spare tire jack). The engine may need to be supported. The bolts should carefully be removed to avoid stripping the block. Once the pan is off the residual gasket material should be cleaned/scraped from the block to ensure a clean mating surface. The new pan can be installed with a gasket in reverse order. Once completed the engine can be refilled with oil and started to observe for leak integrity.

On 302 5.0L models, the engine mounts need to be unbolted and the engine lifted up from the frame. I lifted by the crank pulley with a piece of wood in between the jack and pulley. The pan can be dropped partially to unbolt the oil pickup/pump from the engine and then the pan can be dropped.

Does it hurt if you over fill a 3.5 ltr engine by a half of quart of oil?

It has been my experience with my 91 v8 305 camaro that over-filling with engine oil can blow the main gasket between the engine and the transmition due to the oil pressure build up. It is always recommend to drain surplus oil overfill rather than leave it in. [if it's fresh oil, drain back into a container, pour into original oil container and keep it for top ups???] This might not be the result for your engine, but if you start to find oil on the ground after you park, it's already happened! It's expensive to replace the gasket on mine as transmistion has to be removed or engine lifted to acess gasket replacement. [Note: I discovered after limping it along with frequent top-ups after it started leaking purfusely, that my normal use of 100% synthetic oil, left in over the winter storage period, seems to have soaked the leaky main seal and I don't see much oil spillage on the ground now. I may be lucky and not need to change main gasket after all, but I know I won't allow any overfill in the future.] edutainer

Does the engine need to be lifted to change a thermostat on a 1995 Chevy Monte Carlo?

No, no lifting required. If you remove the intake duct, the air cleaner and housing, it's pretty easy to get at and change. Just as a precaution, it's a good idea to disconnect the negative battery cable before you do just about anything under the hood of a Monte.
