Hello: You have a upper and lower oil pan. To remove either one you have to either remove the engine or remove the transmission. It is a complex job.

96 Nissan Maxima overheated grey smoke came out and now it won't turn on all it does is whine

Probaly Warped Alluminum Head and Head Gaskett Is Blown alowing water into oil . When the grey smoke come out the exaust that was it's last call.The Car cannot get enough compression to start is why you hear the whinning noise. I would check oil for water or water for oil. Now sometimes checking oil with dip stick wont do it cause the oil will set on top of the water. Best way to check is drain oil and watch what comes out? If head gaskett and head is warped both will have to be replaced with new., an expensive job. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but this is my oppinion.

It is doubtful the head gasket. Other problems would show up like loss of water into the oil etc.
Check there is water flow through the heat exchanger.

Oil Pan Rusted and needs replaced

ok not to hard to replace you need to go to auto store and buy a new one. it may or may not come with new gaskett they can tell you what size you need if it dosent come with a new one. also you will need to drain the oil before removing the old pan so make sure to buy new oil for that.. your basicly doing an oil change so you may as well get new oil filter too. then after you have everything... new pan, oil, oil filter, gaskett.. just get under take out oil plugg drain oil in catch can. remove the oil pan bolts you may have too tap the oil pan in different directions to get it to drop off. clean away old gaskett if you need to, and replace new gaskett and oil pan, lay new gaskett ontop of new oil pan and hold in place to get a couple bolts started then start and tighten all bolts useing a cross bolt tightining pattern to make sure the pan is in place{ tighten one bolt then do opposit bolt} change oil filter, and refill with oil.. if you need to see this done youtube is an excillent place to find videos on this.. i hope this helps... remember to let the car cool before doing this so get everything you need and start the next day before you drive.. nothing worse that getting hot oil down you arm while your laying on the ground...

My 2002 ford taurus leaks anti freeze and was told it was head gaskett or timing gaskett. The oil is fine and the leak is not all the time.

More than likely (and hopefully) it is the timing chain cover gasket. Common problem on Tauruses with the Vulcan V-6. Had the same problem. Replaced gasket and leak stopped. Not cheap if taken to a mechanic, but is doable if you have some experience and the equipment.
