I don't know liter size of engine? 2wd or 4wd? You safely raise and support the vehicle, where applicable. Drain oil from oil pan. Remove bolts from oil pan. You may need to use a thin putty knife around gasket edge of oil pan to loosen. Depending if 2wd or 4wd there may be a different procedure?
There are safety issues working under a vehicle. Safety is your responsibility.
look at the shape of the sump pan and see where all the deep bits are. That will indicate if the oil pump will be in the right place and if the pan will clear any obstructions.Even though the engines may appear similar there are construction differences that may require a different pan.
You will need to change the oil pump pickup tube and screen / about ten bucks for the Melling brand one..and get a different Pan SBF 260-289-302 so the sump will not interfere with the cross member.. you will also need to move the dipstick from the side to the front timing cover and there are other considerations..

YOU NEED A REPAIR MANUAL BECAUSE YOU HAVE A FEW THINGS YOU HAVE TO DO TO REMOVE OIL PAN.FIRST OF ALL YOU HAVE LOWER FRONT DIFFERENTIAL CARRIER WITH FLOOR JACK IF YOU HAVE 4WD VECHICLE..DISCONNECT THE FRONT EXHAUST Y PIPE FROM THE ENGINE AND THE EXHAUST SYSTEM.YOU HAVE TO REMOVE OIL PAN SKID PLATE.AND THE LOWER CONTROL ARM CROSS MEMBER FROM BELOW THE OIL PAN.
Yes, you need to pull the engine to remove the oil pan. This requires that you remove the propeller shafts and the third cross member to slide the transmission toward the rear of the vehicle. I suggest you purchase a service manual before you start this process. More than likely the rod bearing for cylinder 1 has failed. This seems to be a common problem with later model 3.5L Trooper engines because the oil pump and oil gallery do not deliver oil as efficiently to the number 1 rod bearing.
I suspect you have had an oil pump failure. To get at the rotory gear oil pump you will have to drop the oil pan. After you take the pan off, ( having drained the oil the oil pump is what the oil pick up line leads into. That pick up assy. is a round shaped disc with a screen inside it. Clean the screen first then the oil pump. Install new oil pan gasket on reassembly. Hope that helps you. Please let me know.
Hopefully the engine was not damaged when the pump broke. If it was you may need a complete engine rebuild, MAYBE.
The simple answer is, bolted to the bottom of the engine. Ford and Lincoln vehicle generally have the cross member right under the engine, so the oil pan is obscured by it. Many oil pans on rear wheel drive Ford products have 2 oil sumps or wells, 1 near the front just behind the belt pulleys, and the other just behind the cross member, this one also has the oil drain plug for oil changes. Not sure why you are looking for the oil pan, so I hope this helps.
