Disassembling the oil pan has nothing to do with the engine, as long as it is sealed during installation.

Most cars basically need to unscrew the oil drain screw of the oil pan when the engine oil is changed. This oil drain screw will slip after a long time. After sliding, you can only replace the oil pan and the oil change screw. When installing the oil pan, replace the sealing pad of the oil pan one by one. This will ensure the good sealing of the oil pan. If the installation is not good, or the sealing rubber pad is not replaced, it will cause oil leakage from the oil pan.

As some cars are added over time, the sealability of the oil pan seal gasket will decrease, and the oil pan will leak oil. In this case, you only need to remove the oil pan and replace the gasket. If the oil leak is serious, it is recommended to replace it immediately. If the oil pan is not properly sealed, causing a serious oil leak, it will cause the car to lack engine oil, which will affect the poor lubrication of the engine.

Many German cars with very good performance have been leaking oil for a long time. In these German cars, the engine temperature is relatively high, and the engine oil temperature is also very high. Under long-term conditions, the oil pan seal rubber pads will age and harden, which will affect the sealing performance. In this case, replacing the gasket can be solved.

There are a lot of rubber gaskets in the automobile engine. These rubber products will basically have aging phenomenon when they are used. The aging will cause the engine oil to leak and leak.
