Accord 3.5 v6 8th oil pan cracked

Looks like it is leaking oil from a very small crack on my oil pan... I believe it is just a matter of taking it out and welding it. I would like to know if it is simple to remove it...by the way, I can store the old oil, right?

Thanks

Very simple. First, remove engine from car. Second, remove oil pan from engine. I would do everything in my power to ensure that the pan was in fact cracked before going to all that trouble. Also, I believe that the oil pan is aluminum, which is going to make welding it more difficult, I would replace with new rather than risk having to replace it twice.

Ignore the entire first sentence I typed. I would still go to great lengths to ensure that there was an actual crack before diving into removing the pan. I too have used JB Weld with good results. I fixed a leaking gas tank on my 1940 Cadillac with the stuff, it held up great for several years.

You don't need t remove the engine to remove the oil pan on a J series engine. Where did you get that idea?

you should look up JB weld.

I have read some pretty amazing stories of people using it on all sorts of things. Including a cracked engine block leaking coolant.

I would drain the oil out of the car and wait an hour so there is nothing in there. Then sand the crack so its fresh metal and use that JB weld.

For 10$ its worth a shot. Read up on it. I use it all the time on all sort of stuff

Read this thread: Replacing Oil Pan - AcuraZine - Acura Enthusiast Community

You need to remove the exhaust J-pipe for the pan to drop out. You DO NOT need to remove the engine.

Exact same procedure for the Accord. The entire J series Hondas have about the same procedure.

I have used JB weld to patch a crack in the combustion chamber of a small two stroke engine, and it worked! For about 15 minutes.. I also used JB weld to patch a hole in the side of a small four stroke engine, which seems to be holding up so far.

Try the patch first. If that does not work then replace the pan.

here it is very expensive the new or a used oil pan... I believe it is about 300 dollars... the best would be to weld the aluminium...i believe they would have to use TIG... anyway i think i will try with that jb weld and then try to really weld the apparatus ...

Thank you all

Strange... is everything the same in on those engines?.... for example once i changed the steering rack in my 2008 accord and i had to remove the cross member chassis. In the other hand in the 2007 accord we don t need to do that...

How did you damage the oil pan?
Did you hit something?

If it is for sure cracked then remove it and bring it to a welder that knows how to weld aluminum. Look up rim repair guys, welding aluminum is easy for someone that welds aluminum. Simple and a forever fix, unless you hit something else lol
