If you are talking about cleaning the inside of the oil pan, my question is why are you doing this? Unless you are doing a repair, this is not necessary. But, saying that, the only way to know is to remove the bolts and find out. You may need to remove a cross member or disconnect an engine mount and jack up the engine, but it is unlikely you will have to remove the engine. Other than jacking the vehicle up for better access, you can drop the oil pan without removing a cross member. I did it to change my oil pump filter, and it took me about an hour and half to do it.

How do you start marine diesel engine that has been sitting for a long time?

I don't know since I have the same issue that I am working on. Will attempt a start this afternoon. My Volvo 2002 has not been started for 12 years and I went thru a process of determining what should be done. This is what I've done: - Pulled tank and cleaned all the gunk out of it. Reinstalled and put new fuel in. - Replace all filters as well as the water impeller. (make sure you fill filters with fuel) - Fresh oil - clean and oil air filter (engine needs clean air, fuel) Will crank engine with engine stop pulled and with decompression level on. Wish me luck!

How do you replace the thermostat on a 95 mercury villager video or pictures?

The thermostat is located behind the piece that the upper radiator hose connects to on the engine. The engine should be cold and the radiator cap removed before removing the hose where it is connected to the engine. Then the throat the hose was on is unbolted and pulled loose. Remove the thermostat and use a scraper to clean both mating surfaces. Install the new thermostat and gasket and bolt it back in place and re-install the hose. Although it is not really necessary, a gasket sealant can be used to keep the gasket in place - this should be evenly and thinly smeared along the surfaces.

How to install a thermostat on a 1997 Mercury Mountaineer AWD V8?

Follow the top radiator hose back to the engine. There is where the t-stat housing is. Remove the hose, remove the housing, remove the old t-stat, clean gasket surfaces install the t-stat into the housing with the spring side sticking out toward the engine, use spray adhesive to attach the gasket(DO NOT USE RTV), reinstall everything and be careful to evenly tighten the housing bolts until they are snug(DO NOT RAUNCH HARD ON THE BOLTS). Fill the cooling system with a 50/50 mix of coolant and water, and burp the system.
