Thanks
My Oil pan gasket was rubber. Part number 12350249
Thanks for the info BLACK94SSEi, is that a Fel Pro # or Delco? I would also assume that the 95 SSEi would be identical?

I think I'm going to do mine also. If I'm not mistaken BillBoost37, your car is same year and model as mine?

I decided to take the day off to do some work on the 95 SSEI. At the moment I'm trying to remove the oil pan and although I have removed one of the lines that goes to the oil filter housing this has only allowed me to remove all the bolts that hold the pan in place. I have tried for close to 20 minutes at every angle and cannot remove the pan since it is either grabing onto the windage tray or the oil filter housing. Any suggestions since I'm on hold thus giving me a chance to calm down. Fricken Car!

Bill, the oil level sensor is at the (cars front) lower side of the oil pan, it was the first thing to be disconnected since I didn't want to damage it. That'* not what'* stopping the oil pan from dropping......Please excuse the tone in this post................frustration has set in. Thanks for replying Bill.

I reread your post since I have calmed down abit, I disconnected the sensor but didn't loosen it. Do you think I should be removing it to allow the pan to drop easier?

I would give it a try. I too was frustrated when trying to get this silly thing off. Found that loosening the sensor was the trick on mine. Apparently in the S2 it sits on the pickup tube or something silly like that. S1 might be the same.

First of all, I got the oil pan out. I had to remove the other nut holding the oil line in and it still took a bit of persuasion. My next question is, it would appear that I have a plastic windage tray that is still up into the engine block area. I'm going to clean it while it'* still there but do I place the rubber gasket between the block and tray and then the oil pan below? At present there is no gasket other than the one shown which is part of the windage tray......if that'* what you want to call it.

2nd question is, what is the last gasket shown in the picture below? Is that for the oil sump pump? I don't think I'm going to replace that one since I've already opened up a can of worms. I'm sorry if the pictures aren't in focus but half my body is soaked in grease and oil......This car has more leaks than the oil deserts of the world.

That last gasket is for the oil pick up tube. Looks like you'd have to drop that tray to get to the bolts for it. If you have low oil pressure, it is possible that gasket is leaking and allowing the oil pump to pull some air.

That tray may indeed be the oil pan gasket on a 95, for all I know. If you have leaks there, I'm betting you need to get a new tray.
