Unbolt the bolts around the pan. Clean it up. Buy a new one. Use gaa grease on the pan where the gasket goes. Apply the gasket to pan. Stick it in place. Add a few bolts at a time. Tighten in a x pattern, Snug them. but not too tight. rpayton84@yahoo.com

you will also have too take the bolt out of the motor mounts & lift the engine alittle bit i replaced mine already & you cant do it without lifting the motor some cuz when your taking the old pan off you cant clear the oil pump that sits inside the pan

i need some knowledge on how to pull the oil pan. do i have to remove the whole engine like i have been told? i didnt think i had to remove the engine, just tilt it up a lil like it says here. i am also replacing the valve cover gasket, any tips on that? i dont have to do a complete engine teardown? thanks for any and all replies.
