Default Removing oil pan, previously sealed with Permatex black "Right Stuff"

New member, 1st post. I normally frequent 356 & BMW & Alfa forums. Working on my wife's Honda Accord V6 which I previously sealed the pan with Right Stuff and now had to remove to re-seal the front plate. Google lead me to this site with an old post on various solvents. I came up with another non-destructive method to remove the pan. I don't know if 928's have a section of the pan to apply leverage but the attached link might give someone an idea how to implement it:

928 sump doesn't use instant gasket type material, or at least not from original. Has around 25 bolts and cork gasket instead!

OP is a new user with only 2 posts on RL. He's offering guidance on a "problem" that doesn't commonly exist for 928 owners. No warning bells went off when I selected the link, but that doesn't mean it's clean as my firewall and security gateway do a lot of scrubbing before things make it to the desktop.

Geez, flame the new guy! I had no intention to mislead. It was a Rennlist 928 post that led me to seek solutions for removing Permatex. Sometimes one must do some digging to solve problems such as these. I do not profess to have any expert 928 experience, I was just offering an "out of the box" approach to help someone who may find themself in a similar situation. Original Rennlist post:

No flame intended, and welcome to Rennlist. I wasn't implying that you were attempting to mislead. We do get a share of the drop-in spam-bot "users" with posts or references to something completely divorced from the 928, usually on the way to getting in a few posts to clear initial moderation. Then they dump a pile of spam posts on us. So please pardon my casual caution, as your opening post fits that profile pretty darn well.

More than a few of us keep a Honda something as a parts getter, and in my case anyway it serves as the winter limo while the 928 is hibernating. In fact I need to sneak out now and give the Honda a quick bath to get some winter "deposits" off and reveal the true color again. A monster's work is never done...

Cheers Dr. Bob. Maybe we can meet up for a beer at Worthy or Deshutes, the next time I come thru Bend.

I look forward to it!


Seems we are up to 28 distinct micro-breweries at this point. At some point soon we'll have to arrange a 928 gathering here that includes some pub-crawl activities for those who like to sample the suds. There's a fall Festival of Cars that might be a good excuse.

I have experience with that stuff, SAAB's don't have a pan gasket, just use sealant. With their oil ingestion issues, pulling the pan off every few years is routine. Thankfully there's a good place to get a pry bar in that and pop it off.

Sooner or later, someone else is going to run across a similarly stuck oil pan, sealed with some type of "permanent" gasket cement. Here's an idea for using a jack screw to pry it loose. One could put a bar along the bottom bosses and add a 2nd or 3rd jack screw. Simple screws -- a bolt and an all-thread coupler nut, say 3/8-16. Use a token piece of bar stock to spread the load so you don't have a concentrated force directly on the pan casting.


Jack screw for prying pan loose

See, now this post is 928 specific ;-b
