Oil Consumption I just had and oil change, tranny fluid change and new valve cover gaskets on my van done. Last summer, I did the oil change and tranny fluid change myself, replacing both the oil pan, and tranny pan gaskets. I am very picky about doing things right the first time when it come to the maintenanc of my vehicles.

Oil pan gasket leaks. It has been changed 2 times and now I am told that it doesn't take a regular gasket, but liquid gasket that is put on the oil pan. Is this true?

Oil leak? My 1996 Volvo 960 takes 7 qts. of oil up on a oil change. after 1,000 miles, the dipstick shows no oil. Add 1 qt. it is full again. Another 1,200 miles, same outcome. I changed the 3 seals in the oil filter housing, changed the coolant hoses that connect to the housing, also the gasket on the oil pan drain plug. All of these places I believed were the main leak, but I was wrong. Still leaks. Please help me troubleshoot this problem.

Hello. I have oil leak on 97 civic that covers the bottom of egine backwards. Could it be as simple as the oil pan gasket needing replaced? I am now having to replace a quart a little over a month duration. It used to be about 2months.

I need to replace the oil pan gasket on my 2000 pontiac montana. i was able to remove 10 bolts from the top of the oil pan, but noticed some larger bolts on the sides of the oil pan (4 total). do those need to be removed as well? Is this a project that someone with little auto repair experience (oil changes, brake replacements, etc) would be able to do?


Yes,remove those bolts as well,the way I always approach a job like that,which I've done hundreds is always better to take off more than not enough,just look around the oil pan and look at the gasket and see how many bolt holes it has,that should ans ... 2000 Pontiac Montana

I have a 99 Saturn SL2 with 180,000 miles. I have "slime" in the oil when I take off the Oil cap. I also burn through 1 quart of oil every 1000 miles. I change and flush my oil every 3000 for the life of the car. (I drain the old oil, fill it with cheap oil, run the car for a a few minutes, then drain and put in good oil and filter.) It looks good when I first change the oil but the slime always come back. I fear a head gasket, and other ideas?

I recently replaced head gaskets on a 4.7 engine. After completion we noticed that the oil pressure drops off to zero after running for approximately 15 minutes at normal engine temperature. The pressure stays up while engine is cold. We changed the oil to a different weight, since the same problem. We pulled the pan, no slug build up. Changed the oil sender, no changes. Removed valve covers and rechecked timing marks on cams...no problems. Any suggestions or advice would be helpful. T

Could there be possible oil leaks using old head bolts? I just changed the head gasket, oil pan gasket, and valve cover gasket. The leak seems to be coming from under the cam gear and under the distributor. I've researched some and could possibly be a shot oil pump. Please help!

I took it today to the oil place where i changed it thinking maybe they didnt screw something on properly but they told me that my oil pan is damaged because they say i went over a curb!
