Replacing the oil pan isn't particularly difficult, but you may have some trouble getting to it since there is often a cross-brace or something else to obstruct free access to the pan. Once the bolts are loose, the pan should just come down. The gasket may have stuck a little so you may need to persuade it.
If you have a cross-brace obstructing access, you may need to disconnect the motor mount and lift the engine a little.
Hope that helps; and good luck.

Check engine light came on then check gauges light came on then truck stoped

Sounds like possible oil related, will it start? If so check to see if your oil gage is at normal if it is all the way down, your oil sensor gage prob just needs replacing. Cheap part easy fix, otherwise the screen on your oil pump is known for clogging, not very often is it a broken oil pump.

Low oil light and alarm on at stop or slow speed

you need a mechanical .guage to connect to your engine to tell for sure if it is a real problem. but most cases a new sending unit for the oil will fix the issue. I don't know on your exact model but a sending unit is normally cheap to replace.easy to change. and normally close to oil filter. if it doesn't fix it have a mechanic check your actual oil pressure.

Burning oil, whats a easy fix

If you are not leaking oil and have a light blue smoke from the exhaust,you are burining oil in the combustion chamber. No easy fix as it can be piston ring or rings or valve guide seals or a combination of both. An engine burning excessive amounts of oil requires a rebuild or a replacement.

1995 GMC Sierra z71 oil pressure dropped- need advice on this

The oil pump is in the oil pan and needs to be dropped and being a 4WD you also need to drop the front axle pumpkin to remove the oil pan and replace all the gasket needed. Start with the easy and replace the oil pressure sending unit, it's on the back of the engine to the passenger side of the distributor. You can go to Auto Zone and pick up a new Oil sending unit, just make sure your get the right one, "Sending Unit" Looks the same are the oil pressure sensor but the unit reads the pressure, the other just signal a light to go on and off. It's an easy fix like replacing a spark plug.
