Q: Broke oil pan do I have to pull motor to replace

asked by on

Need to replace oil pan

My car has 12100 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

While I myself have never replaced one, from what I can find, the answer is YES. The engine does have to at least be elevated from it’s mounts quite a bit to remove and replace the oil pan. If you plan on doing this yourself, make sure all electrical connectors and hoses are disconnected and properly labeled. You run the risk of damaging wiring if you move the engine around with everything still connected. Disconnect the battery and the engine harness.
