Default How to change lower oil pan on a 2006 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 v6 4L?

I have looked on the web and have call the shops but cant see how changing the
oil pan will take 7 hours to fix. My truck is leaking from the oil plug and I
believe it is stripped. I have ordered another lower oil pan and plug and was
looking to replace it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'am afraid I cannot be of any help here.
But maybe someone on the Toyota forum of the Ih8mud website (
http://forum.ih8mud.com/ ) is able to help you out.

Why would you spend all that money on a new oil pan?

There are a zillion kits/plugs available to fix that in about 5
minutes.

I believe the Toyota drain plug is a 12mm thread. I would first check for a self tapping drain plug that is slightly oversized and cuts its own threads into the pan. Always change the gasket seal on the plug when you change oil so you don't have to tighten it too much and strip it again. If a self tapping drain plug isn't available you could get a 14mm plug and tap ofthe same thread pitch and try enlarging the hole in your original pan. Either would be a lot easier than swapping the pan and then if that didn't work you could swap the pan. Another option would be to get one of the piggyback plugs that you thread in and leave. The plug has a smaller bolt in it. You could epoxy in the outer plug that wouldn't have to come out again.

The reason it takes so long to change the oil pan is you have either pull the cross member under the engine or raise up the ending in order to slip the oil pan out from under the engine because of the oil pump pickup going down into the pan.

Er... to stop the leak.

Gods, what a horrid idea. Far better to replace the oil pan.

You obviously haven't a clue.

Good luck, you WILL need it.

Idiot. Temporary "fixes" on the lubrication system of automobiles is
asinine, stupid, dangerous, and expensive. Only a moron re-taps an oil
pan's drain hole.
