    I need more space to remove the oil pan? How can I do this?

    I have the truck up on jacks, I removed the exhaust pipe, but I can not remove the oil pan, it would come out. I have the 2 bolts out to support the engine.

    i think i know what you mean, you dont have enough room to take the oil pan off right? there is a crossmember or framerail in the way? you need to dissconnect your engine mounts and either jack your engine up from the bottom or use a cherry picker to lift to engine from the top...make sure you have people with you because this can cause alot of need to dissconect any hoses that dont have enough slack to be moved 6inches-12inches, dissconnect and and all plastic/breakable lines or anything that would get broken or damaged when lifting an entire engine up . Hope this helps...Ive had to do this many times for my 1990 ford mustang 5.0....good luck

How do i change the oil pan on a 2007 ford f150 4.2L v6?

4.2L Engine
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
    During engine repair procedures, cleanliness is extremely important. Any foreign material, including any material created while cleaning gasket surfaces, that enters the oil passages, coolant passages or the oil pan can cause engine failure.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the starter.
  4. Drain the engine oil. Install the drain plug when finished.
  5. Remove the 4 bolts and the crossmember.
  6. Remove the 3 oil pan-to-transmission bolts.
  7. Remove the 17 bolts and the oil pan.
  8. Remove and discard the oil pan rear seal.
To install:

Do not use metal scrapers, wire brushes, power abrasive discs or other abrasive means to clean the sealing surfaces. These tools cause scratches and gouges which make leak paths. Use silicone gasket remover and a plastic scraping tool to remove all traces of old sealant. Follow the directions on the packaging.
  1. Clean the gasket mating surfaces using silicone gasket remover, a plastic scraping tool and metal surface prep. Follow the directions on the packaging.
    If the oil pan is not secured within 4 minutes, the sealant must be removed and the sealing areas cleaned. To clean the sealing area, use silicone gasket remover and metal surface prep. Follow the directions on the packaging. Failure to follow this procedure can cause future oil leakage.
  2. Apply silicone gasket and sealant to the oil pan sealing areas shown and install the oil pan rear seal.
  3. Apply silicone gasket and sealant to the rear main bearing cap.
  4. Install the oil pan rear seal.
  5. Apply a bead of silicone gasket and sealant to the oil pan mating surface.
  6. Position the oil pan and install the bolts. Tighten the bolts in the sequence shown. Tighten to 10 Nm (89 inch lbs.).
  7. Install the 3 oil pan-to-transmission bolts. Tighten to 34 Nm (25 ft. lbs).

How to get oil pan gasget out 1993 ford f150

That is a fun one. you have to remove the exhaust after the manifolds (or at least unbolt and move out of the way). Then remove the bolts to the engine mounts and transmission mount and raise the engine as high as it will go without breaking jamming anything against the firewall.

Have a oil leak on oil pan on my f350,got the oil pan lose,but cant get the oil pan out, trans is in the way, do i loosen the trans or motor mount on engine

Remove the motor mount bolts and raise the engine slowly. Don't dent the oil pan when raising the engine! After the engine is raised, you should have enough clearance to remove the pan.

The pan gasket is cheap. Remove the pan install new gasket. A shop would charge around $100. Now the main seal, it will run you $800+ to fix. Difficult and time consuming.
