Purchase a repair book from an auto parts store for the auto to be repaired. It will tell you all you need to know.

It also depends on what kinda of vehicle you want to do this on. On one particular vehicle the only way to get the oil pan off was to lift the engine (I'm not kiddin') and another one you had to take a part of the exhaust out of the way to get at it.... anyway, ya, other than the few pain in the butt ones, the rest ain't so hard.

1)drain the oil 2)remove the bolts 3) scrape away old gasket material or sealer from both surfaces (being careful not to scar them) 4) Clean the oil pan well (you don't want any extra junk in there when you put it back on. 5) Put on sealer/gasket 6)put bolts on 7) If you can find the proper tightening specifications, then go right ahead and do it, but if not, and you don't have some idea, then it's best to take it to a shop. Cork gaskets should be tightened to about 100 inch pounds (max 120, 100 being safe). I recommend using a torque wrench. It's best that you replace the oil filter too since the oil is already out and .... why not. :) I hope I could help :)

You can change the oil pan gasket in your 2000 Chevrolet S 10 pickup truck by removing the oil pan bolts. Once the bolts are removed the oil pan will come off. Remove the old oil pan gasket and replace it with a new gasket.

drain the oil form the drain plug on the pan, then unbolt the pan, and change the gasket. Rebolt the pan and refill the oil. Good luck
