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.

How to replace an oil pan on a Prelude?

Buy a new filter, oil and new oil pan gasket. Never use an old gasket unless you have no choice (stuck in the middle of nowhere). Drain oil. Remove oil filter. Remove the approximately 10 bolts around the perimeter of the pan. Remove old gasket, clean the gasket surface on the engine and new pan with brake degreaser. Install the new gasket onto the pan. Insert 1 or 2 bolts through the pan holes and then put the new pan, with its gasket and bolts, onto the bottom of the engine, and hand-tighten two bolts to hold the pan in place. Then add the rest of the bolts, tighten evenly to the specified torque, install a new filter (Purolator's Pure One), and add the specified oil. Put the oil cap on and run the engine to check for leaks.
