Hello, I'm not exactly technically challenged but I'm certainly not
totally repair savy. I want to replace a damaged oil pan on a 1995
Dodge neon SOHC. It looks like it's nothing but a few nuts, however
there appears to be and engine support right in the way. Is this job
to hard for me to attempt?
Oil pans are about as easy as they look, except for a few small details. You
should be able to squeez the pan out fron in between the block and the
support. Just be careful, there are a few things inside the pan you need to
watch as you take it off. Remember when you get the pan you need to order a
new gasket. Make sure you scrape off all of the old one from the block and
put some gasket glue on the block and the pan before you seat the new gasket
in. You will also need a torque wrench. If those bolts are to tight you
risk strippin then and losin the seal and you will need to have the hole
tapped. If it is too lose it will leak. So the answer to your question is
NO. Its not hard at all if you just do a little bit of homework and take
