6.0 Oilpan

To replace the oilpan gasket on my 03 F250 6.0 do I need to pull the motor? Thanks.

well you can do it in the truck but it is aggravating and i would not recommend that way. the best way is to pull the engine.

are you tracking down a oil leak?

oil pans are very easy to do in the vehicle , you can take mount bolts lose under the carriage , 21mm , jack up some on the motor and it will slide right out , on the ground you can do that job in two hours , very simple very easy

and by the way i ave never seen an oil pan gasket leak, on an 03 its usually the bed pan and or rear main seal, also on that model, check the icp sensor on the back side of the engine , that is a fairly common thing to leak

Thanks guys. I'm just going by what the dealer told me. They want something like $3000 to pull the motor and replace the oilpan gasket which they say is leaking.

i bet they are going after the bed pan , and not necesarliy just the oil pan gasket , ther is a bed plate gasket , upper and lower oil pan , for that kind of money , i bet thats what they mean

In a traditional engine, the crankshaft is held in the block by main bearings and caps and all is contained by the oil pan. The 6.0 utilizes a plate (bed plate) which has the main caps built in. This bed plate bolts to the block where the main bearings would usually bolt and to the sides of the block where the oil pan would traditionally bolt, then the oil pan(s) bolts to the bed plate. Changing the gasket on the bed plate requires the engine to be removed, where as the oil pan(s) do not. Hope that helps.
