1996 Ranger oil pan gasket replacement

The gasket needs replacement. Coming out near the front crankshaft
pulley. Leaking lots of oil. The local repair shop says the engine
must be lifted to replace the gasket and they estimate around $1,000.
4wd, automatic.

Does this make sense?

More likely a front main seal.
The balancer has to be pulled to check the sealing surface for wear, and if
so it can be fixed with a speedy sleeve and another front seal.
If that's what it is, the cost should be less than half.

No, it's the oil pan gasket. It's a "rubber" gasket, flat with ribs
about 3/4 wide and 1/4 thick, maybe with a slight taper. I was able
to poke it part way back in to get the flow of oil "stopped" but I'm
sure it will come out in a short while.

Re: 1996 Ranger oil pan gasket replacement

If you can push the gasket in, then I have to ask the stupid question...

Is the oil pan bolts all tight (down to specs, not over tightened).

If it is the front main seal, it can be done for a LOT less and under
50 bucks if you do it yourself,even if you have to buy a puller. ALso
the hub has to be worn very badly before it needs a new seal and I
would not bother sleeving it even if it is a little grooved. If the
pan needs to be removed for leak repair, I see no reason why the
engine cannot just be unbolted from the mounts and rasied up a few
inches or so to get the pan off. No need to pull the engine to change
a pan gasket. Unbolt mounts, jack engine up by pan with a block under
it then insert a piece of wood of the correct thickness needed for
clearance between mounts and frame and remove jack and remove pan.
Time to look for another mech.

Re: 1996 Ranger oil pan gasket replacement

On Fri 05 Aug 2005 03:48:09p, Tom assaulted the computer and came up with
this:

the front axle is in the way of dropping the pan down enough to get it and
the gasket out for replacement. it's a royal pain in the ass to put it
lightly. but yeah, if you can poke the gasket back in, tighten the bolts!
