How do you remove the oil pan on a 2007 Chevrolet Uplander?

I am attempting to replace the oil pan on my 2007 Chevrolet Uplander. I have removed the starter, all 12 oil pan bolts, moved the oil cooler out of the way, removed 3 different brackets attached to the oil pan, and 2 bolts attaching a bracket on the underneath of the passenger side of the pan to a bracket. The oil pan does not budge and there is not enough clearance to try and get a putty knife at the seal. I have trid to pursuade it with a sledge but still not movement. Any recommendations on a bolt I might have missed or how to get this loose? Your help would greatly appreciated in helping me save a tow bill to the dealer and the high cost of having someone else fix ths. Thank you!

Testimonial: "Hi Arnie, Thanks for your response. I took a look at a Haynes manual and it's much more complicated than I initially planned. Involves removing lower ball joints, hoisting the engine, removing the engine mounts and dropping the frame..... Not exactly what I was hoping for. More than I'm looking to accomplish in my garage. Off to a repair shop for me. Thanks again!"

SOURCE: I'm trying to remove my oil pan on a 2000

I am not sure, But there could be six more bolts to remove. They will be on the side of the pan, about half way up. three on each side. Sorry for guessing, I work on to many makes and models. Also the gaskets do hold the pan on tight sometimes. If there are no extra bolts then carefully pry it off.

1. Remove the rear wiper arm 2. Remove the wiper driveshaft nut( nut behind wiper arm) and the washer and seal from the driveshaft 3. Remove liftgate trim pannel 4. Dissconect electrical conn and retaining screws from the motor. Reverse to install. But my advice is put the motor in but leave arm off, run the wiper motor to make sure it is working and to make sure it is at its resting spot. Then put the arm back on.

2006 uplander, there maybe a cover to remove to get to the oil pan, lets see if i can find a picture of the drain plug.okay im not sure the engine size in this uplander but they all should be about the same, here are some diagrams to help you locate the oil filter and oil pan drain plug. the oil filter is located from under the engine on the driverside behind the ac compressor, the oil drain plug is located on the bottom of the oil pan on the pass/side. heres a diagram of the two . hope this helps.johnjohn2_90.gifjohnjohn2_91.gifjohnjohn2_92.gif

Uplander oil service idecator rest" 2007 model year

Not a problem. Comes on based on miles, so you should also change the oil. But you need to manually reset the counter.

Chevrolet Uplander, 2005-06 Chevrolet Venture 2001-05
With the ignition key in RUN but the engine off, repeatedly push the trip/reset button until OIL is displayed on the Driver Information Center (DIG).
Once “OIL” is displayed, push and hold the trip/reset button for five seconds.
The number will disappear and be replaced by 100 (indicating 100% oil life remaining).
Turn the key to OFF. If the “CHANGE ENGINE OIL” message comes back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset.
Repeat the procedure.
