First remove the motor mounts (some times you have to apply heat to break the bolts loose, just remember that you need to be very careful when using heat of any kind around the engine) and then use a floor jack under the front of the engine to lift it up in the air as far as possible to gain enough clearence of the oil pan with the cross brace, if the engine can be lifted up high enough, you should have no problem removing the pan to be cleaned and a new gasket installed. Replace the pan back in place using the pan bolts to hold in place. Bolts can be tightened at this time while engine is in the raised position so you have enough room to get to all of them as long as the engine is secure. After installing pan bolts, lower the jack, replace motor mounts and torque to required specifications. Just remember, this may not work on all cars the same way, so first, you may want to call around to make sure your car can be done this way.

You will need a new oil pan gasket when the oil pan gasket leaks. It is recommended that you use a new oil pan gasket every time you remove the oil pan.

1. Remove the drain plug and drain the oil from the pan. 2. Remove the bolts on the perimiter of the oil pan. 3. Remove the oil pand and its gasket. 4. Install new gasket. 5. Install new oil pan. 6. Install new (or use existing drain plug). 7. OPTIONAL: now is a good time to replace the oil filter. 8. Fill appropriately with oil.
