oil pan question, kinda.

hey guys i got a question. I am looking at replacing my oil pan gasket on my 99 rerunner 2.7, due to the slight leak that has develop. anyhow i crawled up under my truck today to take a gander to see what kind of job it will be, it doesn't look all that bad but, toward the rear of the oil pan, where it meets up with the tranny housing, there are two rear bolts that must come out. question 1: what is the best way to remove them because it doesn't even look like a wrench will fit in there and question 2: what is that gasket looking thing that is sandwiched underneath the two bolts and on top of the tranny housing? it kinda just looks like a piece foam and it's real brittle, it was breaking off as I was touching it with my finger???

You will need to remove the stiffiner plates on the left and right sides of the tranny. Then that dust shield can be removed, allowing access to the bolts at the rear. You will also have to remove the front swaybar.

nope. But i recommend "the right stuff" sealant over a pan gasket. Its an easy job, but easier with 2 people!

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

You should be able to get a socket on them. the material is a cork gasket, similar to the gasket on the drain plug.

dually, what is this "right stuff" you speak of? i went to autozone and the guy working there suggested the permatex black gasket maker and chris4x4, do you mean the dust quard is a cork gasket, or are you refering to something else?

The dust shield that goes between the tranny and engine is metal. The sealant should be labeled with "the right stuff" right on the container. http://www.permatex.com/products/Aut...sket_Maker.htm

I know it’s a little pricy but this is what Toyota uses
for oil pans and water pump’s.

Question

dang, that stuff must be as good as duct tape! haha. since you work a toyota, i got a question for you, my truck has this bad vibration/shaking(it's like i'm driving 90 down a gravel road, however I will be on some of the smoothest roads in my town. I have already replace all kinds of crap, new front/rear shocks, had the tire rotated/balanced, ball joints and tie rod inspected, even had it aligned, all checked out o.k., so what could be causing this horrible ride. for what it's worth, it gets worse the faster i go, 55-65 is terrible.
