Yeah pretty much you would just have to drop the starter and the shield that covers the torque converter

Gasget trash inside motor caused low pressure,each time change oil an filter not workin this time,pressure drops the faster I go,

You will need to drop the pan and clean out the sump tube. It isn't a dirty filter that is the problem, it is a plugged up screen at the bottom of the sump tube.

How do I change oil pan gasget

Jack up truck for safety sake put jack stands under frame . remove all engine oil remove all bolts holding oil pan on if their is not enough room to drop pan you may have to remove bolts holding motor mounts and jack up engine. if front end linkage is still in the way remove linkage. pull oil pan out. check gasket that was between block and oil pan if any stuck to block of engine remove with gasket scraper or wire brush or wire wheel on drill.make sure mating surface is clean put new gasket on new oil pan I like to use a high temp sealer on gasket both sides. Put pan with gasket back in place of old oil pan and tighten all bolts. jack engine down ,replace moter mount bolts replace any linkage you took apart. and dont forget to replace engine oil. make sure oil plug is in pan before pouring oil in . before starting engine check that no oil is leaking than start engine and check for any leaks again if all is good your done. if this was helpful please leave good feed back. A good temp fix on a rusted oil pan is JB weld make sure no oil is on pan clean with towel and rubbing alchol .you may have to drain oil first. if it is rusted badly you may have to use a wire brush on a drill to clean the area to patch. if patched properly it may last for years.

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.

No really, you have to pull the engine to do it right.

Oil is leaking from a grill on the bottom of the engine, what is this?

I drive a '02 tribute, basically the same as your Escape. My mechanic said the gasget around the oil pan does not seal well on these alluminium oil pans. He ordered, from Mazda a kit that included a new pan, gasget, bolts and pan plug for just over 100.00. So inexpensive the mechanic thinks this is the manufacturer's way of acknowledging that the original pan was poorly designed.
hope this helps

no they dont make a partial gasket kit... unless youve damaged the oil pan gasket, the one that ison there should be fine... put some black silicone rtv sealant where the front cover and oil pan/ block meet. if youve damaged the gasket you have to drop the pan.
