Oil pan gasket

1103 Views 13 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Unholy707
Alright guys, was really hoping I didn’t have to lift the engine but rear of oil pan won’t clear sway bar and cross member. Disconnected steering linkage, lowered steering rack, and still not enough room. Anyone change their oil pan gasket in the car before? Thinking about using 2 pieces of wood/2 jacks to jack up on the motor mount brackets after I disconnect them to get the clearance to take the pan out. I saw a post about someone having this done at the dealership recently and they said they didn’t have to remove the supercharger to install the pan, so I’m assuming they lifted the engine how I just described. Anyone have any ideas? Info? Suggestions? Don’t want to leave the engine unbuttoned for long - already have the pan all unbolted. Thanks guys

Wasn’t too bad. Took some things apart I probably didn’t have to. Found an easy way to lift up engine. Just pressure washed/degreased/brake cleaned oil pan. Just have to clean up block, lay some RTV and put new gasket on, pan, and the pickup. I have all new arp hardware for the pan instead of the crap torque to yield stock bolts

Did you drop the transmission first before lifting the engine?
