How hard is it to change oil pan gasket - 1994 Isuzu Pickup
Depending on what other components are in your way,it should not be difficult.The way cars are made now,it could be 3 hours.First buy the gasket.Drain the oil.There is a drain bolt on the bottom of the pan.When putting back on it does not need to be cranked overly tight.Tighten it until it stops,then give it a slight extra turn.Also,remove the oil filter and make sure to take off the old rubber gasket/seal.Oil filters should always be hand tightened.Oil filter band type tighteners are completely unnecessary and a waste of money.Hand tighten,then give it just a little more.That is what the gasket is for.When you drop the pan,there will probably still be a little extra oil in it so drain it properly.Almost any garage will accept used oil at no cost to be recycled.The gasket holes should line up with the bolt holes on the pan.Put several bolts in loosely,maybe halfway until they are all in.Tighten them until they are not quite all the way down,yet close.When you do the final tighten,start on one side with 1 bolt.Move criss cross and do the opposite end.Go to the middle and tighten those 2.Then,starting from the original,keep criss crossing.This is to ensure uniform tightening and prevent wrinkles in the gasket.Any questions/problems,just reply here and i will get an auto link to your post and will reply ASAP.Good luck! greg
