You might try CAREFULLY tapping it with a RUBBER mallet. I say rubber because a metal hammer could dent the pan. Over time the silly thing tends to get sealed and nearly welded to the block because of the gasket.If it's the type where you can actually see the mating surface of the pan to block, you could use a stubby blade screw driver to break the seal.

SOURCE: Removal of oil pan?

The car has three mounts in a triangle configuration. The front trans mount, the passenger side motor mount and the rear motor mount. I do not know if anyone has ever successfully raised the engine to slide the pan out, but remember, if you do this, the pan goes back on with anaerobic gasket maker on it, so make sure you can slide it out with grating on the underside of the block. If you can't, then it will likely be impossible to get back in place without smearing the gasket maker all over and making a heck of a mess. The commonly accepted way to remove the pan is to remove the two front subframe bolts and allow the subframe to drop enough to get the clearance you require. The bolts are 18 mm heads and are really torqued on there so you will need a serious breaker bar and cheater bar to go with it. USE SOLID JACKSTANDS or BETTER YET, RAMPS to do this. The force you will need to apply can take the car right off a single jack.

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.

How do I change my oil pan gasket on my 95 ford Thunderbird, thank you first time car owner


Lift your car and place on jack stands. Then drain engine oil from pan. If there is/are any other steering or suspension components under oil pan, remove these first. Then, begin removing all bolts that hold pan in place. There should be a few bolts that come from the rear of the transmission section that also hold engine oil pan. Remove these. Once all bolts are removed, use a rubber mallet to tap oil pan until is breaks loose. If hard to remove, use a pry bar or flat head screw driver to pry oil pan off. Install in reverse order.

How do i remove oil pan gasket


Let the oil out of the pan. If it's going to be reused then put it in a clean container. Remove all the bolts that hold the pan onto the engine. If it doesn't come loose after the last bolt is removed give it a light tap with a rubber mallet. Using a screw driver to pry it off will only bend the pan and scar the engine block. Don't use one. If the gasket tears when removing the pan , use a putty knife to scrape ALL the old gasket material on both the pan and the engine. Be careful not to gouge the aluminum surface or the new gasket will never seal. Use a gasket adhesive and apply it to one side only of the new gasket. Place the gasket on the pan . Use some pan bolts to line up the holes in the gasket with the pan and let the adhesive dry a while. Now carefully put the pan up against the engine and put each pan bolt in by hand. Do not tighten any of them until all of them are installed. Only then tighten them all. Put back the oil and you're done.

I have all the bolts and everything else out of the way but the oil pan will not come off how does it come off


If all the bolts are off, you need to pry the pan off. To do this, once again look to ensure all bolts are off, then using a screwdriver, stick it between the pan and the block and gently pry it loose. Move around the pan to several different places prying gently till it comes off.

    When Replacing oil lines from Pan to filter How do you remove the old line


    Very carefully pry on the motor with a pry bar to give you the clearance you need to remove the old lines.Watch and make sure you don`t pry on anything that will break.I usually pry between the motor and the front differential.It only has to move about a 1/2 inch.And as far as removing the bolt on the adapter.I use a real long extension on my ratchet.It`s about 36 or 38 inches long with a 13mm swivel socket.Also make sure you remove the splash shield in the front of the vehicle.There are 4 15mm bolts holding this shield on.This will give you more room.Hope this helps.Good luck.
