Leaking Oil Pan Gasket

2000 TJ 4 Cyl. Can the gasket be replaced with out having to drop the axel like the book states? Or is it impossible to do that way?

i know on yj and xj you just have to drop the drag link and it will come out, especially a 4 cyl i can't believe you'd have to, but maybe a tj guy can confirm.

jpdocdave,

Thanks for the input. I guess no one with a TJ as tried to fix w/o the removal. Guess I'll take a stab at it next week and see what happens.

i can't believe a tj person can't chime in, the oil pan gaskets get replaced all the time. someone with a 4 banger tj speak up.

Just curious..have you tried snuggin the bolts lately? I did on mine, and it stopped my drip.Temp. have stopped the problem until it cools down outside to change mine.Mine's a six, so I can't help with your removal question

Yes have snugged them and didn't help. Not sure if the gasket is a multi piece or one. If multi then I can drop enough to clean up and put the pieces in. If a one piece will be a bit more work I guess.

Got my pan gasket changed. Didn't have to do more than raise the jeep about 6" for room. then drop the trans shield and exhaust pipe from the manifold. Pan came right out took about 3 hours. Sure beats 250 to 300 bucks and all the other things was told needed to be done to fix. just thought I'd fill you in on how things went. did it this past week.
