Q: Do you have to lift the engine to change oil pan gasket in 2007 Chevy impala and how many hours would it take to replace

asked by on September 19, 2017

Do you have to lift the engine to change oil pan gasket in 2007 Chevy impala and how many hours would it take to replace? Also if oil leaks on ground how long do I have to get it fixed and how much should I expect to pay?

My car has 112000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

I believe on these engines the engine mounts will have to be removed and the engine will have to be jacked up slightly. Since a Jack and block of wood cannot be used on the bottom because the oil pan will be removed there is a special hoist that is used to raise the engine from the top of the vehicle. The time it will take will depend on if the proper tools are available and your experience level. As for oil removal from the ground I cannot say for certain how much it will cost however I would recommend calling around local places to see if that service is provided in your area.

When i drive over a dip in the road theres a vibration/grinding in the pedal and car.also when car leans right it does.

A possibility is the motor/transaxle mounts are worn or sagging and that causes misalignment of the CV axles accounting for the noise and vibration. However, that is just one possible scenario. Vibration under acceleration could also be due to an...

If the car is using coolant and you can't find any leaks, it must be going out the tailpipe; and that would certainly explain the smoke. But it could also be that the coolant is leaking and evaporating just as...
