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.

How do i remove an oil pan off a 1998 ford 2 wheel drive with out pulling the engine


Remove the bolt that runs thru the engines motor mounts, not the ones that attach it to the engine block. Take a 2x4 and put it on a floor jack so the jack won't damage the front pulley. Raise the engine with the floor jack to get enough clearance to manuver the pan around the steering components once thw oil pan bolts have been removed. Watch the fan blades don't hit the radiator.

Is there any way to remove the oil pan without taking the motor out on a 1998 Cadillac deville base model?


Nope...gotta pull the engine to remove the pan... Why do you want to remove the oil pan? If it is a leak, you MIGHT want to consider sealing it from the outside. I did this once on a Eldorado and it worked fine. Be patient and clean, clean, clean the area that leaks(actually clean ALL the area where the oil pan meets the engine. I used a high-temp, gas/oil resistant silicone sealer and my finger to work the sealer into the area. Let it dry for a couple of days and see if that works. Good Luck....

98 Grand C jeep 4litre crankshaft end play


Usually this can be done but I think that if you have wear on thrust faces, there is likely wear on support faces as well, Once you have the pan off, plastigage both rod and main bearings. if out of specs, you really should change all of them!! Make sure you torque everything properly and avoid getting oil on backs of bearings when installing... can lead to spun bearing.
good luck

Oil pan


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.
