So once the warmer weather comes back around, whenever that is, I'm going to have to put a new gasket on the slant six. Going to replace the leaky rear main seal as well. Question is can I get the pan off with out having to jack the engine up? I've hard it can be done but I may have to rotate the crank while doing it and that's fine by me, but I want to know if it's possible or not.

How do you know the rear main is leaking?

Let's just say you can tell where I've been parking lately. laugh The pan actually doesn't even have a gasket at the moment. The previous owners had a mechanic that did their work. I think he may have been a little cheap cause he only put silicon on and not a gasket. And sence I'm going to be in there I might as well change the main seal too. I had to put a gasket on the valve cover cause he did the same thing there. This is why I do my own work. There are good mechanics out there but finding them is getting harder. Plus the more you do yourself the more you learn.

In a van? No problem. You can even pull small block oil pans in a van without disturbing the motor mounts, provided you have true dual exhaust. I have done both in a van.

Personally, I would douche off the pan and adjoining area real ,REAL good. They start the van and let it idle for 20 -30 minutes. Take a good up close look. If the pan is still dry , it's just the pan gasket. If it is wet, well , then the rear main is leaking. Don't jump to conclusions

Thanks for the info Reed. Hasan- I've actually been watching it leak for a while now. It wasn't too bad before, but now it's to the point where I have to do something about it. And I'm usually one of those that figures I'm here so might as well do this and that too while I'm here. This way I know it's done and one less thing to worry about. But I understand what you're saying.

Hey pockets,

Yeah, that's pretty bad mechanicing, not installing a valve cover gasket, let alone not installing a pan gasket. I'll bet you can tell where you park...

A failed siliconed diff cover seal sidelined one of my trips last year.
Factory installation. Again? IDFTS...

I reassembled it with a gasket and high quality Permatex. I doesn't leak.

Good wrenching on/under it! Ha!
Van On!

Thanks Wedgy. Ya I thought it was pretty cheep not using a gasket, especially because they are only a few bucks themselves. Should have seen my face when I pulled the valve cover off and no gasket, who does that. That's when I took a second look at the oil pan and bam, no gasket. I also found some loose pan bolts which slowed down the leak once I snugged them up. Gonna have to check the pan good for shape when I pull it off.
