Take a flat head screwdriver and pry it down. Start on one side and work your way around. The gasket should be the only thing holding it on. Unless you overlooked some bolts. There are two that are hidden at the rear of the engine by the flywheel.

SOURCE: 2000 ford explorer door handle

I assume you mean the drivers door. You need to remove the door panel and there are two nuts on the inside holding it on.The door panel has three retaining screws and you need to locate and remove. You then slide the door panel up and then remove it.DON'T pry the panel out you will break it.One screw is on the bottom of the panel. You should see that one. The other ones are under the door switch area and the inside door handle trim.Some have one under the remote mirror trim but not likely.That should give you access to the door handle nuts. Good Luck and I hope this helps you. Thanks Dan

You most likely hit a curb, the pan is cast aluminum and will break like glass if you hit a curb, the pan can be changed without removing the engine, it is very time consuming, but it can be done.

SOURCE: Need torque specs for oil pan bolts

torque specs for these bolts can be found in a Haynes or Chilton manual availiable from your local parts store, or maybe at your local library, however these bolts are usually no more than 14 ft pounds, unlike cylinder head bolts, the bolts do not need to have any stretch factor to hold the oil pan gasket in place or sealed.

Wheres the oil pump


The oil pump will be in the oil pan bolted to the motor. You must remove the oil pan to access it. In some vehicles you may have to loosen the motor mounts and lift the engine up a little to remove the oil pan.

I can not get the oil pan off of my 1999 ford explorer 4.0


Did you pull the engine to do it or are you trying to do it under the truck. If under the truck you may not be able to do it, you will have to undo the motor mounts and lift the engine as far as possible with a cherry picker to attempt to make enough room for the pan to clear the oil pick op tube and oil strainer. Always bets to pull the engine for this one and do it on a stand.

When the factory fits sump pans they use an adhesive sealer instead of a gasket so you may have to use something like a knife or sharp chisel to break the seal to get it to move.
