Question about 1996 Lexus LS 400
I have a 1996 LS400 (about 175,000 miles) with a loud tapping that I have been told by the dealer is likely a connecting rod. I am also told that the cost to install a used engineis about 4 or 5 K. I repeat this is a 1996. I'd like to drop the oil pan, identify the sloppy rod, replace the bearing, and pray that it's not the piston pin. If that fails I will junk the car. My question is can I drop the oil pan without removing the engine?
