there is no simple way, there is only the right way remove the oil pan and reinstall it with a new good quality gasket. are you sure it is the oil pan leaking? never seen one leak before, usually it is the intake manifold The 1st thing you should do is figure out where the lleak is coming fromand what kind of fluid it is. I like to get a big peice of cardboard and put it under the car. Mark wher the tires are and in the morning, you will know exactly where to look for the source. It might be as simple as excessive oil spilled on the frame from changing the filter or as bad as a transmission. The important thing is to know hwat it is.

What is ths differiance between the Chevy II and the Chevy implia?

Everything. The Chevy II was the small, economy car of its time. In it's early years, starting in 1962, you could get that car with a 4 cylinder. The first from Chevy, other than the Corvair. You could not even get a V-8 in it for the first 2 years. It is a uni-body car, as well, which means that it does not really have a frame. The body is part of the actual structure. Now, the Impala was the full size car. You could get a 6 cylinder, but not a 4. Another thing, you could get a big block engine in the Impala. The Impala also had a independent, full frame. They both had a sticker price about $1500 apart. The Impala was more.

How do you drain radiator fluid from a 2006 Chevy Impala?

I have a 2005 Chevy Impala and had a hard time locating the radiator drain plug, as well. You access it from inside the engine compartment. It is on the lower left-hand (drivers side) inner corner of the radiator. There are 3 different small hoses running directly in front of the drain plug, which makes it difficult to see. Good luck!
