Hey TRAVIS,

You must support the engine becasue the cross member must be removed, also they glue the hack out of those oil pans so they make a tool that will cut the seal. Here are instructions and some diagrams so you can see what it going on.

Oil Pan Removal

1. Drain the engine oil.

2. Make sure you have the anti-theft codes for the radio and navigation system, then write down the frequencies for the radio's preset buttons.

3. Disconnect the negative cable from the battery first, then disconnect the positive cable. Remove the battery.

4. Remove the air cleaner housing.

5. Remove the harness clamp. Remove the two bolts, and loosen the two bolts securing the battery base, then remove the battery base.

6. Remove the clutch slave cylinder, and clutch line bracket mounting bolt (M/T).

7. Remove the ground cable, then remove the transmission upper mount/bracket assembly.

8. Remove the front mount stop, then remove the front mount bolt.

9. Remove the rear mount stop, then remove the rear mount bolt.

10. Raise the vehicle on the hoist to full height or on jack stands.

11. Remove the front tires/wheels.

12. Disconnect the stabilizer links.

13. Remove the left side damper fork.

14. Disconnect the left side suspension lower arm ball joint.

16. Remove the left side driveshaft. Coat all precision-finished surfaces with clean engine oil. Tie plastic bag over the driveshaft end.

17. Remove the nuts securing the transmission lower front mount and transmission lower rear mount.

18. Use a transmission jack or floor jack to lift the transmission 40 - 55 mm (1.6 - 2.2 inch).

19. Remove the stiffener.

20. Remove the bolts/nuts securing the oil pan.

21. Drive an oil pan seal cutter between the oil pan and engine block.

22. Cut the oil pan seal by striking the side of the cutter to slide the cutter along the oil pan.

23. Remove the oil pan.

Please let us know happens so it will help others.

Best, Ken

I have a 98 honda accord v6 needing a new oil pan. I just bought the oil pan and wonder if the exhaust and cross member need to be removed to remove and install?

Hi drivewaymechanic,

The exhaust from the manifold to the catalytic converter needs to be remove.

Any other things directly under the oil pan has to go so that when installing you would be able to gain easy eccess.

1997 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 197000 miles

my mechanic says oil pan needs replacing.
My skills are mid-level, have tools, can replace external parts, do own oil changes, brakes, exhaust, etc.
Can a skilled diy-er do this job? Any potenetial big problems or it this a straight, buy a new pan and gasket, remove the screws, clean the gasket area, install the new gasket, torque the bolts (? Lbs. Tq.)?
I figure 2 hours if all goes well.

Hi TJWsr,

You got it right. However the exhaust from manifold lower end to catalytic converter has to be removed to facilitate replacement.

Bolts torqued at 10 lbs.

Hi, It will probably take up to a three to four hours if the person has been aroun cars for awhile .. see the info on your car .

I hope this helps you .

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7

The EPA warns that prolonged contact with used engine oil may cause a number of skin disorders, including cancer! You should make every effort to minimize your exposure to used engine oil. Protective gloves should be worn when changing the oil. Wash your hands and any other exposed skin areas as soon as possible after exposure to used engine oil. Soap and water, or waterless hand cleaner should be used.

Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Firmly apply the parking brake and block the rear wheels.
Raise and support the front of the vehicle on jackstands.
Drain the engine oil.
If necessary for additional clearance, remove the center beam.
