Oil Pan Gasket Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Oil Pan Gasket all about?

An oil pan is a metal container that contains the engine oil. The oil pan gasket seals the oil pan to the bottom of the engine. The engine has a lot of moving parts that need to be kept lubricated by the engine oil, without which the parts will damage each other. The oil pan and the gaskets are located under the car and are attached to the bottom of the engine. It is common for the gaskets to wear out and start leaking oil. You will see oil on the ground beneath your car. If the oil is leaking, you may see an engine oil warning light in the dashboard. If you continue to drive your car without the proper amount of oil, you will risk severe damage to the engine.

Keep in mind:

  • If road debris has caused damage in your oil pan gasket, then your oil pan may be damaged as well.
  • Oil pan gaskets can collect grease from many leaking parts. It’s important for a mechanic to verify that the gasket is leaking directly from the oil pan, and not just collecting oil from a different leak.
  • Oil pan gaskets can be made out of many different materials.

How it's done:

  • Check oil pan for leaks and damage.
  • Remove engine oil pan and gasket.
  • Remove oil and filter.
  • Clean oil pan.
  • Install new gasket.
  • Add new engine oil and filter.
  • Run engine to operating temperature and check for any oil leaks.

Our recommendation:

Any time your vehicle is serviced or inspected, you should have the oil checked. Even if a mechanic doesn’t look at your oil pan gasket directly, simply checking the oil will usually indicate if there’s a problem. If your Oil Low warning light becomes illuminated or you notice that your vehicle is leaking oil, schedule an inspection immediately.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Oil Pan Gasket?

  • Consistent oil leak in the same spot under your car.
  • Smoke from engine compartment due to oil leaking on hot exhaust pipes.

How important is this service?

Your engine needs oil to function properly and safely. The oil in your car is collected and stored in the oil pan. The oil pan gasket acts as a seal for the oil pan. When the gaskets are damaged, oil will leak out of the oil pan, past the gaskets, and out of your engine. As a result, your engine will lose oil, which can result in catastrophic engine damage.

Augie
27 years of experience
Augie did a great job on my brake fluid flush. He communicated very well prior to getting to the appointment and once he was here he continue the great communication during the service. Augie is a straight shooter when it comes to what he can or cannot do once he surveys the situation at hand. For my case, I was told by another auto care shop that my bleeders and calipers were to rusty (car is from back east) and that they not only gave me a scare about not being able to bleed the brakes but if they broke while attempting they would have to replace the calipers ($800 with labor). So I was relieve that the service could be done and that Augie let me know the steps he was taking to make sure bleeders could be removed and the fluid drained. I was mostly definitely book him again to another job because I felt at easy and I didnt feel like I had to worry about being overcharged or ripped off in any way.
