    Oil Pan - Transmission

    Inspect/Replace

    Removing the Oil Pan

    • When removing the pan, leave a row of screws in the front of the pan.
    • Remove all of the other screws.
    • Then, loosen the remaining screws in the front of the pan.
    • Be sure to have a large fluid catch tray ready. Let the fluid spill into the catch tray and then carefully remove the pan.

    CAUTION
    There are usually 3 - 4 quarts of fluid in the pan. This weighs about 6 - 8 pounds. Be careful! The fluid is often quite hot and if the pan is not carefully removed, the fluid will spill out fast.
