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.
the acids in the oil eats the pan over time
i want to fix a 1995 astro vans oil pan how do i go about that?
You may need to reseal the oil pan
Answerdepending on the size and location of the hole you can buy a puddy like product from most auto stores the you plug the hole with that dries solid if the oil pan has more than a few holes i would get a new oneget a rebuilt pan from napa it could cost you
How do u fix a stripped out oil pan
Just remove the oil pan and repair or replace it.
Located in the oil pan
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.
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
where does the oil gush out from? but you obvioulsy either have a hole in crankcase, or oil pan, or the oil pan and gasket are loose
Over tightening the drain plug.
