I have purchased a Chilton's manual, and it says that the motor has to be pulled in order for the oil pan gasket to be replaced. I am actually going to pick up an oil pan gasket for my 1997 Mountaineer 5.0l tomorrow. My husband will be doing most of the work, but the Chilton's manual says that the engine has to be completely removed from the vehicle. I have talked to a few other people who say you can just take off motor mounts and lift motor up about 4 inches, but I don't see how a person is going to be able to work around all the other parts. It would be a lot easier and less hassle really to just pull the motor to replace the oil pan gasket.
