Replacing the oil pan gasket - 96 SLS


KHE

Recommended Posts

The oil pan on my '96 Seville has been seeping oil for awhile now. I was not concerned until it began dripping to the ground. The shop manual states to remove the engine (which I do not want to do...). I was thinking about builting an engine support (like the one in the shop manual) that mounts on the strut towers and uses chains and turnbuckles to attach to the lift tings on the engine. Could the subframe then be removed in order to remove the exhaust crossover and gain access to the oil pan?

That is a good pic Joe, I could not imagine dropping the carriage frame, but I guess, with proper powertrain support from above, it wouldnt be too bad

We had a GM tech here that used to do this job named IAN

To me, it looks a lot easier than pulling the engine. I'll probably put that job on my to-do list for this fall.

There used to be a photo essay around that Ian had done for the case half seal repair. I looked around for it the other day, but came up empty. He was working it from the bottom.

I vaguely recall his screen name, but if I recall, the threads dont have the photos anymore, do you recall his screen name?, it had an asian flavor to it.

Thanks Bruce!

That is the thread, with photos!

I recall that when I originally saw this thread, I had a 4.9, so the NS platform was foreign to me. I look at that thread now, and it has MUCH more meaning to me.. Love it
