This should be a relatively straight forward job. I assume you know where the oil pan is and what it looks like. This link will give you a picture of it...
As you can see, it's held on by 8-10 bolts. First, take the drain plug out and drain the oil. Then simply remove the bolts and drop the pan.

How to replace gasket on oil pan for 1987 dodge pickup

  1. Wear eye protection. There is nearly 30 years worth of accumulated must, gunk, etc under that truck. It will fall and find its way into your eyes. Do not skip this part.
  2. Drain oil from engine
  3. Prepare to catch the oil pan when it comes free from the housing. Use a friend is the best method. If you are under it, it will fall on your face and it will hurt.
  4. Remove all traces of the old seal from the housing under the truck and from the oil pan itself. Do not save time on this step, completely remove the old seal.
  5. Install the new seal according to the instructions included with the seal or from the place you purchased the seal. Usually, I install the seal on the pan.
  6. Lift the pan into place and prepare to hold it while you thread the bolts to reattach. If you are under it and it falls or your arms give out it will fall on your face and it will hurt.
  7. Follow the instructions regarding how tight and in what order to replace the bolts.
  8. Replace engine oil. Go ahead and replace the filter and do a complete oil change.
  9. Check engine oil level add more oil if needed.
  10. Wait 10 minutes
  11. Check engine oil level add more oil if needed.
  12. If oil is at appropriate level, start the engine and let it idle until warm.
  13. Turn engine off
  14. Inspect for oil leaks.
  15. Wait 10 minutes
  16. Check engine oil level add more oil if needed.
  17. If the appropriate amount of oil is in the engine and there are no leaks, enjoy driving that truck!

Where is the oil pressure sending unit located

The oil pump is located just inside the oil pan if you remove your oil pan you'll be able to see the oil pump sending unit. The oil pressure gauge switch is located just above the oil pan on the engine block beneath tge cylinder head. Hope this helps.

How to cange and oil pan gasket on a 87 monte carlo

The oil pan is at the bottom of the engine. You might have the exhaust in the way, in which case you need a helper so that you can remove the exhast from the engine and take the entire pipe from the vehicle. From there, make sure you drain all the old oil from the engine and pan. Unthread all the bolts that surround the old oil pan gasket (you may have to remove the starter motor to gain access to a few bolts). Lower the pan carefully off the engine block (the oil pump and oil filter screen are within the oil pan. You want to make sure not to damage these componets or the baffle inside the oil pan). Your new gasket may have four retainers-especially if it's a Felpro gasket. These retainers go into the corners of the engine block mating surface for the oil pan. Slide your gasket up onto the retainers and engine block, then put your oil pan onto it (the retainers will hold it loosely in place. Put all the bolts but the four corners into the engine block. Remove the retainers and replace the bolts. Reconnect the exhaust pipe. Fill engine with oil, run, and check for leaks.

Oil presure issues

It is located on the bottom of the motor inside the low side of the oil pan. (pan has to be removed to gain access). And to remove the pan you may have to remove the exhaust. It's gonna be a project.

Good Luck
