My car has been steadily leaking oil for some time. It looks like the gasket btwn the engine and the oil pan is the culprit specifically near the front passenger side. Anyway it looks like I'll be replacing it my question is this: Is this a difficult repair or just yr standard gasket replacement? Just curious as I don't have alot of mechanical ability.
the lower pan is very easy. Clean it carefully, don't nick the mating surfaces & reinstall with a new gasket. The upper pan can be a bear. It usually won't clear the studs before it hits the crossmember. so you can get it loose but not out. Best done by a pro on a lift.
