I have done this on some other vehicles with the same problem, and here are two idea's.
Remove the bolt from one of the motor mounts and jack the engine up...(one side, but keep an eye on things so you done tear hoses or wiring)
or...sneak in and unbolt the oil pump, and remove it with the pan.

Okay, so the oil pan gasket on my dads topaz was leaking, and beings that ive replaced the tranny pan gasket, the starter, the solenoid, the pcv valve, the battery and a whole load of other stuff, i figured i could easily enough replace the oil pan. Well, I pulled the starter, disconnected the radiator hose, drained the radiator, drained the oil, undid all the bolts (that i could find) etc. Well Basically, the pan gasket is stuck toot he transmission somehow, i can move it around, by any attempts too pull it out result in me cursing because the darn thing wont move, it swings an inch too each side, a good half inch up and down, but it just wont come out. So If any of you can help me with this that'd be great, cuz I need this car running again so my dad can get too work tomorrow morning. Not too mention the potential consequences if I wrecked his car, even though i was following his order too fix it................not lookin so good eh? :/

    • Remote oil filter pipe adapter
    • Remote oil filter hose clip bolt on oil pan
    • Starter wire harness bracket stud
    • Transmission oil cooler pipes (if equipped)
    • Access plugs for oil pan rear nuts
    • Transmission to oil pan bolts
    • Oil pan nuts and bolts gm_truck_43_ol-pn_ol-lvl-snsr.gif

  2. Discard the oil pan gasket.
  3. Clean all sealing surfaces on the engine and the oil pan.
To Install:
Note: Whenever the transmission and the engine oil pan are removed from the engine at the same time install the transmission before the oil pan. This is to allow for the proper oil pan alignment. Failure to achieve the correct oil pan alignment can result in transmission failure.
  1. Apply a 0.197 inch (5 mm) wide and 1.0 inch (25 mm) long bead of adhesive GM P/N 12346141 (Canadian P/N 10953433) or equivalent to both the right and left sides of the engine front cover to engine block junction at the oil pan sealing surfaces. gm_truck_43_ol-pn_ahsv_loc_f.gif

Note: Always install a new oil pan gasket. The oil pan gasket and oil pan must be installed and the fasteners tightened while the adhesive is still wet to the touch.
  3. Install the new oil pan gasket into the groove in the oil pan. Note: The oil pan alignment must always be flush or forward no more than 0.011 inch (0.3mm) from the rear face of the engine block.
  4. Install or connect the following:
    • The oil pan onto the engine block
      1. Press the oil pan gasket into the grooves of the engine front cover and crankshaft rear oil seal housing
      2. Slide the oil pan back against a suitable straight edge
    • The oil pan bolts and nuts, but do not tighten
  5. Measure the pan-to-transmission housing clearance using a feeler gage and a straight edge. gm_truck_43_ol-pn_trnz_clrc.gif

    • Use a feeler gage to check the clearance between the oil pan-to-transmission housing measurement points
      1. If the clearance exceeds 0.011 inch 0.3mm) at any of the 3 oil pan-to-transmission housing measurement points (A), then repeat the step until the oil pan-to-transmission housing clearance is within the specification
      2. The oil pan must always be forward of the rear face of the engine block
    gm_truck_43_ol-pn_trq-sqc.gif

  6. Tighten the oil pan bolts and nuts in sequence
    • Torque to: 18 ft lb (25 Nm).
  7. Measure the clearance between the 3 oil pan-to-transmission housing measurement points in order to ensure proper alignment.
  8. Install or connect the following:
    • A new oil pan drain plug seal (O-ring) onto the oil pan drain plug
    • Oil pan drain plug into the oil pan
      1. Torque to: 18 ft lb (25 Nm)
      NOTE: The low oil level sensor is not reusable.
      gm_truck_43_ol-pn_ol-lvl-snsr.gif

    • New low oil level sensor
      1. Torque to: 115 in lb (13 Nm)

      1. Torque to: 35 ft lb (47 Nm)
    • Access plugs for the oil pan rear nuts
    • Starter wire harness bracket stud
    • Transmission oil cooler pipes (if equipped)
    • Remote oil filter pipe adapter
    • Oil filter hose clip bolt to the oil pan
    • Transmission cover and bolts.
    • Starter motor
    • Front differential assembly
    • Oil level indicator
  9. Fill the engine with oil.

Removing the oil pan from a 1994 vw jetta


you have to remove the oil pan without the gasket because the gasket is attached to your oil pan baffle and that can't be removed until you unbolt your oil pump. i pried the **** out of mine until i realized the gasket couldn't come with it. no haynes manual will explain it as simple as it could be, i hate those books
