Question about Cars & Trucks
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.

well the oil pan will be rather hard to change whit the engine in the car. there is a mount that holds the engine in place that covers the bolts.

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.

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.
