Ok, I found a coolant leak between the timing cover and the block on the right side and took off the timing cover along with other items needed to get there. I saw a message on the parts store computer about replacing the oil pan gasket at the same time- probably because of the front pan oil seal. I got all the parts(gaskets, silicone, tools etc.). What is the best way of replacing the pan gasket without removing the engine and/or transmission and would I need to remove the transmission totally to install the rear seal (it probably needs replacing anyway)? Or would I need to replace the pan gasket at all?
have the same problem?
