SOURCE: removal procedure of oil pan for a 1997 chevy

To remove the engine oil pan either the engine has to be lifted all the way off of the motor mounts and the oil pan should just clear the flex-plate and transmission, or the front axle dropped down out of the way, or the transmission and flex-plate will have to be removed.

Usually if the engine can be lifted enough to fit a piece of 2x4 wood between the motor mounts and the frame then the oil pan will usually just have enough clearance to be removed from the rear and the oil pan should just clear the transmission and the flex-plate. Also, be sure to check that the fan blade does not damage the fan shroud when lifting the engine.

Let me know if you require any further assistance.

Taking oil pan off my 1997 model chevy with a 4.3 vortec motor


You have to remove both engine mount bolts, then jack the engine up until it starts lifting the truck. The pan still will not come out until you pry it out. Be careful. You will also have to pry it back into place. If it is four wheel drive, remove the front differential first.
