Oil Pan Gasket Replacement Service

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.

When replacing an oil pan gasket 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.

Steps for changing an oil pan gasket

  • 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.

When to replace an oil pan gasket

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 replacing an oil pan gasket?

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.

Oldsmobile 98 - Oil Pan Gasket Replacement - Tempe, Arizona
I feel like he's real with his clients which I appreciate. As a person who isn't super familiar with cars he explains everything in a way in which I would understand. He goes out of his way to even help you outside the job. I'll probably be using his services for all my mechanical needs.

Oldsmobile 98 - Oil Pressure Light is on - Houston, Texas
The mobile mechanic came. I must say I am impressed! He found my house. He and I started talking. He said he owned two Ninety Eights previously. He was there to look at my Oldsmobile Ninety Eight. He had two Oldsmobile Ninety Eight Touring Sedans. The ones he owned were from the 1987-1990 era. He was describing the floor shifters and they had and how much he liked Ninety Eights, Touring Sedans, and the Oldsmobile Eighty Eight LSS too. He talked about how a family member owned one and how he was fixing his. He talked in detail about the Touring Sedan and the things he loved. He asked me how long had I owned my Ninety Eight. I told him 2003. He told me how he become a mechanic and went to school for it and more. He got into the Ninety Eight and it would not start. He got out and disconnected the battery and rubbed the negative and positive battery terminals together. He reconnected them and the Ninety Eight started! The instrumentation then told him exactly what it was. There is a sensor at the bottom of the oil pan. He said by doing what he did with the terminals, it cleared the computer and reset it. We went underneath the car and he showed me the sensor. He said which one did you replace? I told him. He said you were on the right path. You know what you are doing. You need to replace this sensor and not the one you did. You can get the sensor and replace it because it is clear you know what you are doing and on the right path. He said you also need to replace your valve cover gaskets. They are leaking. I told him I will request him to come back and do that. I am not doing that even thought I can.

Steven was fantastic! He finished it in half the time that was suggested, and he charged me a lot less. He let me know about any other issues that might be wrong, and he was super friendly. Definitely looking for his help again in the future.
