Reatta Owners Journal

Unlike a lot of other cars, the Reatta Oil pan will come off without much problem.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the oil level sensor connector.
  3. Remove the flywheel dust cover.
  4. Remove the starter .

    My '88 model has the small reduction starter on my engine and I didn't have to remove it. If you have the standard, large starter  it might need to come off before removing the pan.

  5. Remove the oil pan bolts.
  6. The oil pan will come right off with a little sliding around to clear the pickup screen.

See the Oil Pan Gasket Leak - Solution tutorial for instruction on replacing the oil pan gasket and re-installing the oil pan.
