Oil pan - you need to get under the vehicle and remove the engine support that runs under the engine from front to rear. Remove all the screws holding the oil pan. Clean off the old gasket from the oil pan and engine block completely. They may need to be scraped to get them clean, but don't scratch the surfaces. Use a little silicone sealant (rtv) to stick the gasket to the pan. You may wish to put a little sealant on the block side as well. Then put the pan back in place and attach the screws loosely. Tighten them up slightly in cross patterns (not in a circle). Then tighten them a little more in a cross pattern. Then tighten them all up a final time. Wait a few hours before you put new oil in.
