Question about 2006 Chevrolet Malibu LT
I had all of the bolts removed but could not get the pan to budge. tried a pry bar, screwdriver, and a combination of the the two. No dice.
Did you remove the two reversed torx head screws on each side the bottom of the timing cover.

Testimonial: "No I did not remove those. I haven't clue where they are. Timing cover is located where please? What should these reversed torque screws look like? Last why would the timing cover be locked onto an oil pan?"
Not positive on that engine but there could be bolts going in from the sides into the main bearing caps.

Testimonial: "I've looked all around the oil pan and besides removing the one bolt from the lower air compressor nothing should stop me from removing the oil pan. I am concerned about breaking my pan by trying to remove it too forcefully."

take loose the motor mount bolt and jack the front of the engine up to clear the oil pump and remove the pan,.the bolt the runs thru the center of the mounts ,the easiest way ,hope this helps you, thanks robert b.

If all the bolts are off, then the gasket is holding the oil pan in place and your going to have to tap it with a mallet, Not a hammer but a mallet so you don not damage the oil pan. Good luck and hope this helps.

No, should have enough room to slide it out ,if not disconnect the engine mounts and jack up or lift up the engine just enough to slide the pan.
