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 do I remove an oil pan from a 2002 malibu, 3.1 liter


When you say the pan will not drop down do you mean that it is still stuck to the block. If that is the case manufacturers use a gasket material ( sealer that is an adhesive to glue the pan to the block and so reduce oil leaks at the gasket. You may have to use something like a paint scaper and a hammer to cut the gasket free..
