Question about Ford Lincoln Continental
There is no easy way, this job is real pain even at the shop on a hoist , raise the car as high as poss and support on 4 jack stands, then u must disconnect the exhaust system (drain oil of course) and remove the header pipes, remove the center bolt in the motor mounts from both sides, with a engine hoist (hood removed) raise the engine off the mounts as high as u can, then undo the oil pan and reach inside and remove the oil pick up tube or the pan will not come off, drop and and reverse to put back together..

Pan gaskets can be a p[ain in the **** to replace especially if the replacement gasket has a fold in it...you need to have it lay down flat , make sure you scrape the old gasket fully off the pan lip, spray it down with brake cleaner when done cleaning,meke sure you have drained the oil before anything is attempted, apply the 3M Yellow Contact cement in the large tube to the pan then install the new gasket, if you can lay the pan upside down on a clean flat surface allowing the new gasket to set up while the glue dries holding it in place takes about 1/2 - 1 hour.
If you cant pull off the pan for various reasons and want to "TRY" a quickie repair.... loosen up the pan let it drop down enough to spray the leaking area with brake cleaner( be sure the area is sprayed and cleaned real good) then squeeze the gasket forming silicone into the affected area, bol;t back up and let sit for at least a 1/2 day before putting it back into service recheck after silicone cures and hopefully the pan is sealed and not leaking, saving a lot of time and money in doing so, if it doesn't work then the pan must be removed as stated above.
Hope this Helps!!
