Oil Pan Gasket

So I`m going to be changing my oil pan gasket later since it`s leaking my precious Mobil 1 synthetic haha and I might as well do an oil change. So I just wanted some tips to make it easier. I`ll be using Hondabond only and it says it takes 15-16 HOURS for it to have the rubbery like consistency. So how long is it recommended for me to let it dry for me to be able to drive my car? Also what way would be easier for me to to be able to take of the oil pan since the exhaust is in the way. Thanks

Re: Oil Pan Gasket

if you have a stock exhaust manifold, unbolt it from the top half, and the cat and take the lower section out. this is the best way to do it.

Re: Oil Pan Gasket

You unbolt the downpipe is what he means. The top half is the manifold - bottom is downpipe.

and yes, unbolt it from the cat and remove the crossbeam that goes under the oil pan.

Re: Oil Pan Gasket

Honestly when you apply the gasket an its all bolted up id let it dry for 24 hours
Better safe then sorry an having to pull the pan again :)

Re: Oil Pan Gasket

Just buy the OEM honda gasket, and lightly put on hondabond.

Drop the downpipe from the header to the catylic converter, then the cross beam.

you also mentioned that you might as well change the oil while you are swapping the gaskets... How in the hell would you keep the old oil.... I would for sure drain that ****..

Also make SURE that when the oil pan is off you check for leaks in other places... Like the rear main seal for example... Known to leak... ;)

Good luck.

Re: Oil Pan Gasket

To take notice of the rear main seal leaking - it would need to be checked after the oil pan has been replaced. Otherwise there's no telling if its coming from an old leak from the old pan or between the block and trans. So replace the pan and clean everything afterwards to confirm if that fixes the leak. If it doesn't, than yes it may be the front or rear main seals.

Also the oil pan just uses hondabond - no oem gasket for that.

Thanks for the steps man. Haha Yeah I would change the oil no matter what. Alright I shalll ;D Pretty sure the only spot I have oil leaking is oil pan but yeah I`ll be checking her out pretty good. Would leaking oil from the oil pan get on the tranny? Because it dripps abit off of it. I bought some Honda MTF a few weeks ago just incase I needed some but no it was good on oil. I changed out my tranny oil about 3-4months ago. :p

Thanks man still helped even though you where refering to a 4th gen. :p

Re: Oil Pan Gasket

Alright these bolts are pretty damn tight I`m going to need some wd-40 or pb to get them loose and I need a long extension to reach the bolts on the down pipe. The bolts on the catalyst are all rusted. :/ Anyonje have any good tips on replacing the oil pan. I pretty much understand how to. I will be taking pictures of the progress and doing a DIY so any info that could help me out and make this diy better would be great

Re: Oil Pan Gasket

Seems like you got it all down pat. Ya that hondabond stuff id let cure like he said above ^^. Secondly yes pics would be nice! Get a good DIY spot for it.
As far as everything goes just take your time with those and check inside there when its off, and clean the pan real good and check for metal flakes in there.
As for the rusty bolts on cat a heat torch and a bolt re tractor "special socket with grooves to grab rusty bolts with no heads" was used for mine. GL =]

Re: Oil Pan Gasket

old thread i know, but i wanted to add that the service manual says to put "liquid gasket" to the corners of the narrow end. I've read many posts where people put honda bond on the entire gasket surface and it pops out when they torque it down (theres also an order for that in the service manual) I personally just printed out page 7-29 and plan to have that next to me for reference when i do my replacement soon :D
