You never have to change the oil pan gasket unless there is a leak or the pan has to be removed for repair.

Make sure it is the oil pan gasket, it is rare they leak, more likely the oil is comming from up top and drainning down on to the pan (since it is lowest point on the engine), have the engine cleaned of oil and then decide where the oil is comming from, if you find it is just a small leak don't worry about it.

To remove the oil pan on any vehicle, first remove anything obviously in your way...starter, exhaust pipe etc. Then disconnect the engine mounts and raise engine to gain sufficient clearance between frame and pan. You cannot support the engine from under the pan so either use a fixture above the engine or put blocks between mounts and engine to support it. After all rail bolts have been removed, remember that the oil pump pickup will interfere with removal somewhat but pan can be maneuvered around it. Anything preventing you from getting the pan out will then need to be removed or moved as they are identified. Be careful when raising the engine that you do not break anything above it as it comes up.

SOURCE: OIL PAN GASKET LEAK
The engine has to be supported and the cradle under the engine has to be removed. After everything is reinstalled the front end has to be realigned.
