How to replace oil pan gaskets?

Manufacturers do not specify a certain lifetime limit for oil pan gaskets. The component is disposable and is to be replaced in case of defect signs or when the oil pan is removed.

The replacement action sequence depends on the engine type of the car. In general, the procedure is quite laborious and requires special tools and skills. Motor oil has to be drained, oil pan protection plate, and then the pan itself is demounted. In some cases one needs to lift the engine with a special equipment in order to gain access to the component. Before installing a new component one needs to remove oil stains, clean the pan and the gasket mounting seat, and apply sealing compound if necessary. After installation of a new component, oil pan fasteners are tightened with torque specified in a car manual. Then one should check if the gasket is installed correctly: its edges should not protrude out of the area of oil pan and cylinder block connection.

The oil filter and motor oil for the car are replaced together with the oil pan gasket, if necessary.

If you don’t have experience in car maintenance, then replacement of the oil pan gasket should be entrusted to service station specialists.
