To remove the oil pan on any vehicle, first remove anything obviously in your way...starter, exhaust pipe etc. Then disconnect the engine mounts and raise engine to gain sufficient clearance between frame and pan. You cannot support the engine from under the pan so either use a fixture above the engine or put blocks between mounts and engine to support it. After all rail bolts have been removed, remember that the oil pump pickup will interfere with removal somewhat but pan can be maneuvered around it. Anything preventing you from getting the pan out will then need to be removed or moved as they are identified. Be careful when raising the engine that you do not break anything above it as it comes up.

SOURCE: OIL PAN GASKET LEAK
The engine has to be supported and the cradle under the engine has to be removed. After everything is reinstalled the front end has to be realigned.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your help, but i think i need a little more info. before tring this."
The engine does have to be raised. The bolts are not easy to get to until the engine is lifted and the engine mount is removed. I'm doing this job right now and the book time is around 5 hours.

the oil pan will need to be removed to repalce the rear seal, so replace the front seal and gasket then, replace the timing chain/gears if sloppy, then reinstall the oil pan.

Water in the oil is usualy from a leak in the cyninder head gasket. Sometimes you can seal the leak with a radiator additive. If the car starts to run hot or if you see the watery oil on the dip stick you should get the car to a shop for a repair estimate.
