another option that i discovered by accident is to use permatex ultra blue. the first time, i had no other options--all i had was a tube of ultra blue. i drained the transfer case, and blotted the 3/8" by 1" hole in the case with a paper towel. the first coat of RTV didn't even completely cover the hole. it took about ten coats--each coat drying for about forty-five minutes. that's right, TEN coats. i still haven't gotten around to replacing the transfer case, and that was two years ago. no leaks, driving the truck hard in 2wd and 4wd. I've since done the same with oil pan holes. the ultra blue can handle the temperature, the pressure, no leaks, and it dresses up the underside of the vehicle with some nice, bright blue....hey, whatever works!

that depends on whether the oil pan gasket is leaking of it you have a hole in the oil pan if you have leaking gasket, the engine needs to be raised to enable removal of oil pan, gonna cost you some bucks. if you have a hole, drain the oil pan. buy a good filler at auto store, clean area round hole and plug leak i priced it today and it was 2.5 hours labor plus the price of the pan and gasket. around 400 bucks.

Just remove the oil pan and repair or replace it.

You need to have the hole tapped out to a larger size, and put in a larger drain plug. Or, you can have the whole oil pan replaced, which is more expensive

If it's a small hole, you might be able to get away with some 3M structural adhesive. Most of the time you end up installing a new pan.

There is a protective shroud covering the oil pan. A lot of VW owners cut a hole in this plastic shroud at the drain plug to make oil changes easier

You will have to remove the pan completely by undoing all the bolts and then once the oil pan (sump cover) is removed, it is a simple matter to remove the plug, retap/rethread the hole and replace the plug with a new one.

The proper and most reliable way of making that repair would be to replace the oil pan.

hi you have to remove the oil pan then go to autozone or oriley and tell them you need a oil pan gasket for 96 dodge neon then you would place blue siacone on the oil pan ,then you would place the gasket on the oil pan ,make sure that you can see the screw holes ok very easy.

the back of your oil pan may have a hole or the gasket may be ruined. when you get under the car look upa toward the top rear of the oil pan. if you see oil residue. you may need a gasket or an oil pan.

You get the oil can. The oil can is something you'll need to fix the clock.

Yes, it is very easy to change your oil on a Ford Escape. You will need a socket wrench, and oil pan, and oil. Open the oil cap, jack up the car and place the oil pan underneath the oil pan on the SUV. Open the drain plug and let the oil flow into the oil pan. When done, close everything up and add new oil.
