I'm trying to remove oil pan, but can't get pan past frame that is under pan. This is a 2003 Chevrolet express two wheel drive. This frame piece is bolted in and is right under motor mounts. Do need to support motor and remove frame or loosen motor mounts and raise motor. When I try to slide oil pan back past frame piece it hits bell housing on transmission

SOURCE: heater core on a 2003 Chevrolet pickup 4 wheel drive crew cab

if you have air conditioning you will need to take it to a garage and recover the r134, you will need to remove the dash to allow you to remove the heater box, it's an ugly job, I've done a dozen or so and can do it in about 6 hours now, the first time it was closer to 11 hrs, good luck

Remove caliper and nut to axle should come of with a little help of a rubber hammer. Knock bolts out from the front and drive new ones in from the back. You can use a lugnut with the flat side down to help pull them in and a hammer to help. Hope this helps.

I'd recomend you go buy a chilton's manual from the parts store. They have pretty good instructions on how to do this. You probably won't have to remove the motor mounts. Just the transmission mount and the whole thing will drop pretty far.

SOURCE: Removal of oil pan?

The car has three mounts in a triangle configuration. The front trans mount, the passenger side motor mount and the rear motor mount. I do not know if anyone has ever successfully raised the engine to slide the pan out, but remember, if you do this, the pan goes back on with anaerobic gasket maker on it, so make sure you can slide it out with grating on the underside of the block. If you can't, then it will likely be impossible to get back in place without smearing the gasket maker all over and making a heck of a mess. The commonly accepted way to remove the pan is to remove the two front subframe bolts and allow the subframe to drop enough to get the clearance you require. The bolts are 18 mm heads and are really torqued on there so you will need a serious breaker bar and cheater bar to go with it. USE SOLID JACKSTANDS or BETTER YET, RAMPS to do this. The force you will need to apply can take the car right off a single jack.

Did anyone get the oil pan out of the Chevy s10 by removing motor mount bolts and transmission crossmember bolts?


You may have to remove the cross member
& also drop the front axle some, if you have 4 wheel
drive,for clearance.

I am changing the drivers side carrier housing! I pulled the wheel, and c.v. axle, I removed all of the bolts holding the Housing to the engine, and removed the driveshaft. It will not fit through the hole...


you will need to remove the steering rack,frame crossmembers,and motor mount stud nuts.then CAREFULLY lift the engine up by the oil pan with a jack.The jack must be positioned on the passenger side of the oil pan.Or you can remove the oil pan.

Best way change oil pump in 1999 dodge durango


You have to remove the oil pan. It is different for 2wheel drive and 4 wheel drive. In either case, you have to jack up and support the engine. Most of the time you must also remove the transmission rear mount so you can jack up the transmission also in order to get enough clearance to get the pan out between the transmission bell housing and the frame crossmember.

On 4X4 vehicles, you must also first remove the skid plates and the front drive axle to get the oil pan off.

How to remove transmission pan I removed bolts but can't pull it out of fram it eighter hits exhaust or drive shaft I turned it every way possible I heard a small click while turn pan should I be worried...


  1. Remove the engine rear support to crossmember bolts.
  2. Remove the crossmember to frame side support attaching nuts and bolts. Remove the crossmember.
This is the only thing I see about possibly giving you any issues and this is for a V-8.....not sure what you may have "hit" when you tried to spin the pan though.
