As far as I know it can't be done without removing the engine, I never could do it with the motor in the truck

Need to remove oil pan on 1987 chevy s10 2.8l 4x4 four speed


in order to get the oil pan off of a 4 w/d model the front axle assy must be removed first then oil pan removal is straight forward after that. cv axles can be left in just need to take out the 6 bolts on each one drain oil out remove the cable engagement on the bottom wire plug and 4 mounting bolts. rotate assy to remove it. the other way is to remove the engine. take your pick.

Wanting to know how difficult it is to swap 4.3 out in my 1995 chevy s10 blazer, like tranny bolt removal and anything that might be of difficulty that may require specially tools. its also a 4x4


Changing an engine in any car is a difficult task. Changing an engine in a 4.3 vortec 4wd is probably one of the most difficult trucks to do. In order to get the pan out, you have to remove the axle's in so you can get the front diff out of the way so you dont smash the pan on either the new and the old engine. You have to take off front driveshaft and the starter on the passanger side is nearly impossiable to get too. Good luck!
