Replaced my oil pan
Today was a beautiful day and I woke up early (10:30am) for a non working day. I felt very motivated to do something of importance. Give blood or help the elderly neighbors NOPE! I had an oil pan gasket thatí* been leaving the occasional drip in my pretty white parking spot at the shop. So that was my mission for the day. I got the part # for the gasket and went to Advanced Auto parts and got the Felpro gasket set.
So I installed the pan gasket along with the gasket for the oil pickup tube which came in the set. I finally installed the oil pan I bough from Andrew (harofreak00) months ago. And also my oil pressure kit from Intense which I bought like 2 months ago.
My old pan had a few little little sparkles in there which my uncle said was common for a motor with 170k to have on the bottom of the pan. My oil pressure before my kit wasnít low (just a tad under 40psi @ hot idle in traffic) so Iím not overly worried about major wear in my bottom end. Cylinder walls in the block looked nice and shiny too. But I did find something that looked like a little plastic or nylon tooth in the bottom of my pan any idea what this could be? I forgot to grab it to take a picture and it'* mostly in the trash 12miles away from my house @ my aunt'* house.
All in all it was a very relaxing day. The girlfriend is out of the picture and moving to Texas as Iím typing this and I took my good old time on this project to just relax. Switched to Mobile 1 Full Synthetic Iíve been using Castrol Syntec Full Synthetic since I got car.
