    Ls1 oil pan

    I have a question guys and girls
    How hard is it to take off the oil pan?
    What do I have to do? Do I need gaskets?
    Cuz I changed the oil. But after few miles it's black again.
    I changed it at 2000 miles. 100 miles later it's black again.
    My friend said it could have some engine gunk on the oil pan. Could that be the reason?
    Thanks

    Did you change your filter? Because if you didn't and your filter is all gummed up it could contaminate the oil thus making it black. For the oil pan I believe you have to jack the motor up a little bit in order to remove it.

    When I removed my engine with 115,XXX miles on it there was no gunk inside the oil pan or anywhere else in the engine.
    Most of the time oil sludge builds up on top of the heads and around the lifter valley.

    i'm in the middle of this right now. i need to change out the o ring. i dropped the trans to gain the needed clearence to get the pan out. i pulled the pass side motor mount pin and jacked the motor up. not really fun at all but i am doing this once and hopefully that is it.

    im going to pull my pan off to clean it out and put a new gasket on when i do the K-member this winter. I always have oil on my pan and im guessing the gasket is just worn out

    dont judge your oil by the color. The only way to really tell what is going on is to have a uoa
