jackstands or ramps help.. long extension for the 10 mm socket on the pan. follow the proper bolting sequence as not to warp the pan.

i just did this for the second time fri. just put a small bead of honda bond on the oil pan after you make shure both matting surfaces are clean and bolt it donw and you wont have any leaks. i never used a specific pattern or torque setting.

what model do you have?

The ex uses a liquid gasket to seal the pan. the lx and dx use a pan gasket.

You also need to drop down the downpipe as it covers the exhaust. just unbolt it from the header and move it aside. you also need to remove the trans covers as they cover the oil pan bolts.

Re: Oil pan gasket change

I'm about to change my pan gasket this weekend since I'm losing 2 quarts every 20 miles out of it (I did my timing belt this past weekend and supported the motor with a jackstand and wood under the pan while I did it and now it leaks insanely. Since it's the original gasket (218,000 miles on an '03 Civic LX 1.7litre), I just want to make sure that Auto Zone sold me the right gasket. The package says it's for the 1.6 litre motor, but then again my new front main seal from them says it's for the 1.8 litre motor on the box and it fit perfectly.

So, just confirming the LX/DX 1.7 motor uses a gasket.

Thanks!

Re: Oil pan gasket change

IMPORTANT I just did this on a 2003 Civic LX with an auto trans. You will need to unbolt the shift linkage from the transmission in order to remove the Flywheel Cover which holds in the oil pan on the rear (passenger) side of the motor. I was afraid to remove the linkage, but I had no choice. So far, everything seems fine. We need a DIY on this, though.

nah it was done while i was outta state by a friend of my roommates (oil pan gasket) i did the timing belt, and almost everything else bar the input shaft bearing. my car is an lx, and my friend used a felpro gasket and what looks like a generous application of rtv between the gasket and the block...im thinkin this gasket never sealed properly.

so there are 4 bolts on the flywheel/trans cover? i drive 02 lx MT.

do i need to move the linkage also? even since it's not AT?
