Oil pan leaks

My car has 120000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

No, the engine does not have to be removed to replace the oil pan gasket on your vehicle. However, two of the engine mounts need to be removed to get the pan off, so it’s a good idea to support the engine. I recommend having a professional tackle this job for you. YourMechanic is an excellent option since we offer oil pan gasket replacement at your home or office.
