correct sequence for bolts on changinging oil pan gasket 2004 vue 2.2l fwd auto


Asked by Feb 10, 2016 at 06:49 PM about the 2004 Saturn VUE Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my gasket is leaking oil, once the gasket is replaced and sealed, what is the correct tightening sequence for the bolts?  How tight do they have to be?

1 Answer


I have had older cars that began leaking out of the oil pan, especially during the winter when the temperatures are lower and stuff loosens up, I have just tightened up loose bolts on the pan and that has stopped or slowed down the leaking. Yet I think you could start in the middle of the pan and hop from opposite side working your way outward. http://www.clarks-
