It appears that the oil pan gasket on my 04 3.4L is leaking. I know from experience that the 3800 oil pan/gasket replacement is a PITA due to engine mounts and brackets being in the way. Has anyone ever done one on a 3400? Any tips or advice would be appreciated. Thanks

The one on my 04 with a 3.4 began leaking a few years ago. I took the chance of stopping the leak by tightening every oil pan bolt that I could get at and it worked! No more oil on the outside of the oil pan or any other indication that an oil leak now exists.
