It can be a pain yes... You have to remove and replace the motor mount under the harmonic balancer. You have to raise the engine up to do this, which includes unbolting the old motor mount, and loosening the motor mounts for the tranny and dog bones. Once this is done the old motor mount can be taken out. This is the point you take off the oil pan and do what you have to do on it. Make sure you support the engine properly befor lifting up the motor, and only lift it in places that are designed to take the weight. DO NOT USE THE TRANNY PAN, DO NOT USE THE OIL PAN. On the passenger side of the engine right by the alternator you will find a strap loop. Attach a chain here and use a engine hoist to lift it up.
Drop the oilpan, remove oil pump. Measure oilpan depth, set new pump & sump height. Prime new oilpump, install, replace oilpan

1. Be Careful. 2. Remove old oilpan. 3. While you are there replace the oil pump and wire out your oil holes. 4. Replace with new oilpan. The oilpan does not need to be torqued to it's limit - just enough so it doesn't leak. Gasket sealer only makes things worse. If your oilpan is getting pressurized you have other problems. 1.

the oil pump is in the oilpan but in order to change it you will have to to the timing as well
One of many reasons, blown head gasket. Coolent getting into crankcase(oilpan).
I usually drain it from the oilpan drain plug, but every 4th oil change, I also remove and check the whole oilpan. (that's every 12,000 miles.) I just like to keep an eye on everything so it runs better.
If your problem with oilpan is the drainscrew or drainbolt there is a Universal replacement that has threads on it similar to a TAP used to make new threads. For most vehicles. If you have a hole in it possibly welded. Otherwise buy a new oilpan. Good Luck.
The same as any other vehicle: remove the oilpan drain plug, let the oil drain, replace the oil filter, reinstall the oilpan plug, and fill with new oil, 5W-20 per factory recommendation. I use a full synthetic in my 2008 GTS.
The rear oil seal on any automotive engine is located at the rear of the crankshaft, which is usually only accessible once the oilpan is removed. The exceptions to this rule concerning the oilpan still involve removal of the flywheel or flex-plate to gain access, as these seals are installed from the exterior of the crankcase onto the crankshaft.
oilpan on any engine is located at the bottom of the engine. it is the most lowest part of an engine, it bolts onto the bottom of the engine block
most manuel transmissions hve a filter, to get at the filter the oilpan needs to be removed from bottom of transmission
You don't need to. Just unbolt the motor mounts and lift the motor up. Get under the truck & remove the oilpan bolts & remove the oilpan. remove & replace the oil pump. ake sure when you put the new sump screen on the new oilpumop, you measure the sump depth in the oilpan. Failure to adjust this correctly within 3/8 of an inch will result in low or no oil pressure.
It will be located in the crankcase above the oilpan

Yes it is!!
not a nice job to change oilpan on a chev, u need to unbolt engine mounts and jack engine up so u get enuff clearance to remove oil pan
on the bottom of the motor, alongside the oilpan.
The oil pan is bolted to the bottom of the engine
In the oil pan. Jack up the car and safely secure on jackstands. Unbolt the oilpan (have a new oilpan gasket ready), you will see the netted oil pickup and the oilpump. Be careful to not bend the pickup arm.
at the bottom backside of the oilpan.

I was quoted $200 for parts and $650 for labor of 5.5 hours (4 hours were for the oilpan only!)
