Question about 1999 Ford Explorer
I removed all the bolts but the pan wont come off.
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.

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.

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.
