Question Oil leak at pan

Hey all,

I have a '97 Grand Marquis 4.6L ..It has developed an oil leak at what looks like the oil pan gasket..Can the pan be replaced without lifting the engine or lowering the suspesion?
Would it be possible to loosen and remove the pan bolts and remove/replace the casket? Is there a suction line that would make this difficult?
As usual, Thanks for all advice.

Re: Oil leak at pan

The engine has to be raised to replace it. There's a lot involved so if you're going to attempt it, get a Chilton or Haynes manual. Are you sure it's leaking there? The gaskets have a rubber bead around and I haven't seen one leak. Clean the engine good and watch it closely to see where it appears. It may be the front seal or some other area.

Thanks Bert.

I'll clean it up and have a closer look.

If it is a front seal, How big of a project is that?

It's pretty easy to do. You'd need a pulley puller though. Autozone loans them for free.
