Oil Pan Gasket Tips

Has anyone changed an oil pan seal? I think I am getting a leak from here or possibly the rear main seal. Just wondering if anyone had some advice.

Re: Oil Pan Gasket Tips

If its near the rear main, it might be your rear main, especially i the car is around or over 100k miles. It also might be your oil cooler o-ring, which is inside the hole you screw your oil filter onto, which is an eaqsy and cheap fix, pretty much the opposite of the rear main, which is alot harder and more expensive.

The oil pan gasket really is not a gasket at all, its two plastic pieces. (I'm pretty sure) and I think you're supposed to use honda bond on it.

Someone else could prolly explain better than me, but the long and the short of it is you gotta find where the leak is actually coming from. Clean your engine (get oil off it) then throw flour over the affected area and around it and run the engine at idle for a couple minutes. You should be able to find exactly where it's coming from, which will save you time and money.

Thanks man I'll check that o-ring as well hopefully it's that because I was looking at the pan and I'll have to drop the exhaust to get to it. I still have to clean it up and find exactly where it's leaking.

Re: Oil Pan Gasket Tips

From what I understand you take off the oil filter, and there is a nut in there. You take that off and there should be a big o-ring in there, thats it. I don't think you need to drop the exhaust to get at it, but a lift definitly wouldn't hurt. Of course you prolly don't have access to one....

Re: Oil Pan Gasket Tips

Replacing oil pan gasket sucks for me cause I did one on my F22B1 and man, it leaked afterwards. I hate everytime I do them, they leak. Especially when I torque them to spec.
