How do I remove an oil pan from a Buick Regal?


Answer by  happytimes63 (865)

Purchase fresh oil, oil pan gasket , and gasket sealer. Raise car, drain oil, remove any shrouds, or lines that obstruct oil pan. Remove the oil pan bolts, pry pan loose gently. Clean pan thoroughly, remove old gasket. Use gasket seal, replace gasket, install oil pan, fill oil

Open the drain plug on the bottom of the oil pan and wait 20 minutes for most of the oil to drain out. Undo all the bolts holding the oil pan. There's a gasket between the oil pan and the engine. Use a flat-head screw driver to break it loose.

Put the car up on ramps or jack it up securely. The oil pan is under the engine. There may be a frame cross member in the way. Remove the cross member and unbolt the oil pan. Use a new gasket when you put the new one on.

Really all oil pans are removed the same way. There is a series of bolt that hold the pan to the block. Remove these and the pan will be free. However some car require the engine be lifted for the pan to clear the crankshaft. Always replace the gasket when you re-install the pan.

You basically just unscrew the bolts and replace it with a new one. It is nothing too difficult. Save the oil.

We will be removing the oil pan from a Buick Regal. First, we will lift the car up to be able to work on the oil pan. Second, we will remove the screws that hold the oil pan on the car.
