asked by on

It looks easy to get too (highly visible). In other words what is involved in oil pan replacement. I have diesel can a person who work on gas engines replace oil pan

You have a two part oil pan and you are looking at the lower pan part. If this is the part that is damaged then you can get it out by disconnecting the motor mounts and lifting the motor to allow the lower pan to clear. You could try it by lowering the sway bar for the lower pan before lifting engine.
