If your truck is a 4 cyl, then there is no way around pulling the motor to reseal the oil pan. if it is a 6 cyl then the frt diff will have to be removed and then the oil pan will come out of the truck. either way you are in for a full day of work.

Do i have to pull motor out or lift motor to change oil pan gasket?


YOU MAY HAVE TO PULL THE MOTOR MOUNT BOLTS, AND RAISE THE ENGINE HIGH ENOUGH TO GET THE OIL PAN TO CLEAR THE CROSSMEMBER, BUT YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TO PULL IT OUT! JUST HIGH ENOUGH TO CLEAR THE OIL PUMP INSIDE THE PAN!

Do i have to pull or lift the motor to chang the oil pump


You don't have to... But it makes it a LOT easier. I would suggest at least lifting the motor. Putting the oil pan back on without messing the gaskets up is hard enough with the motor out. With is sitting all the way down on the motor mounts makes it almost impossible. But it can be done.

Do i need to drop the oil pan to ghange the timing cover gasket on a 95 ford mustang v6?


You can pull the motor mounts bolts and jack the motor up alittle, that will give you enough clearance to drop your oil pan. If you try and replace the timing chain cover without dropping the oil pan, you will more than likely wind up with an oil leak.

You should be able to replace the timing cover without removing the oil pan. The gasket set should contain gaskets allowing you to cut the oil pan gasket and put in a new partial gasket in this area. In the corners make sure you use some RTV sealant. If you are careful, it can be done. Like Bob A says you can end up with a oil leak without dropping the pan (unless you clean up the area and properly apply the RTV and gasket). If you have time to drop the oil pan, then I would do that.

Need to replace the oil pump on a 95 park avenue


You shouldn't have to for head gaskets, makes it easier but not necessary.
For oil pan, you may have too. Depending on how much room there is between pan and crossmember and if pan is in tranny. Some cars the oil pan is 1/4" behind tranny but don't think that is the deal on your car.

Pulling an oil pan on 1998 grand am


The worst part will be either lifting the engine to the point that it clears obstructions, or to remove the obstructions, or both. Lifting the engine requires that you disconnect the motor mounts and who knows what else. Once everything is out of the way you can drop the pan. I hope this helps.
