Oil Pan
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION details for 2008 and 2009 Ford Taurus car models.


CAUTION
The EPA warns that prolonged contact with used engine oil may cause a number of skin disorders, including cancer! You should make every effort to minimize your exposure to used engine oil. Protective gloves should be worn when changing the oil. Wash your hands and any other exposed skin areas as soon as possible after exposure to used engine oil. Soap and water, or waterless hand cleaner, should be used.

Remove engine. Refer to Engine.
Remove rear seal. Refer to Rear Seal.
Remove front cover. Refer to Front Cover.
Remove 16 oil pan bolts.
Install 2 of the oil pan bolts (finger tight) into the 2 threaded holes in the oil pan.
Alternately tighten the 2 bolts one turn at a time until the oil pan-to-cylinder block seal is released.
Remove the oil pan.
Clean the oil pan, front cover and block surfaces in the following sequence.
Remove any large deposits of silicone or gasket material with a plastic scraper.
Apply silicone gasket remover, following package directions, and allow to set for several minutes.
Remove the silicone gasket remover with a plastic scraper. A second application of silicone gasket remover may be required if residual traces of silicone or gasket material remain.
Apply metal surface prep, following package directions, to remove any remaining traces of oil or coolant and to prepare the surfaces to bond with the new gasket. Do not attempt to make the metal shiny. Some staining of the metal surfaces is normal.


To install:


NOTE
Failure to use Motorcraft High Performance Engine RTV Silicone may cause the engine oil to foam excessively and result in serious engine damage.


NOTE
The oil pan and the 4 specified bolts must be installed and the oil pan aligned to the cylinder block and A/C compressor within 4 minutes of sealant application. Final tightening of the oil pan bolts must be carried out within 60 minutes of sealant application.

Apply a 3 mm (0.11 in) bead of Motorcraft High Performance Engine RTV Silicone to the sealing surface of the oil pan.
Apply a 5.5 mm (0.21 in) bead of Motorcraft High Performance Engine RTV Silicone to the 2 crankshaft seal retainer plate-to-cylinder block joint areas on the sealing surface of the oil pan.
Install the oil pan and bolts 10, 11, 13 and 14. Tighten in sequence to 27 inch lbs. (3 Nm).
NOTE
Do not install all the bolts at this time.
