How do I remove the oil pan on my 2007 Chevrolet Uplander?

I am trying to replace the oil pan on my 2007 Chevrolet Uplander. So far I have removed the 12 oil pan bolts, removed the starter, moved the oil cooler out of the way, removed 3 brackets attached to the pan, and removed to bolts mounting the pan to a bracket underneath the passenger side of the pan. The pan is not budging at this point. There is not enough room to get a putty knife at the seal and I have tried pursuading it with a sledge to no avail. Any insight on getting this thing free would be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you

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.

How to change the oil in my car minwan Chevy Uplander

Typically, there's a "plug" bolt on the bottom of the oilcan which ought to be located at the bottom of the engine. This needs to be removed (careful, as oil will begin pouring out as soon as you remove it). Have an adequate pan/container already located underneath and try not to let the bolt get pushed right into it.

There will also be an oil filter screwed into the side of the engine near the top of the pan. This should be replaced, too. Then you'll need to have enough oil to replace all that you drained, which is added to the oil input spout near the top of the engine, under the hood.

It's best to have the engine/oil warmed up a bit (but not too hot to risk burning yourself if it gets on you), as this will encourage more of the old oil to drip out. Let it do so far awhile before you add the new oil.

I replaced the plugs and wires myself and it rau like new.

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.

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.
