You must remove the oil pan. I do not think you can do this with the engine in the car. If you can remvove the pan from the bottom without engine removal, it would be easy. Most every engine has to be removed to fully remove the oilpan. So my solution is- remove engine, remove oilpan, remove pump, replace pump, pan, and engine.
THE OIL PUMP IS LOCATED INSIDE THE OILPAN ON THE BOTTOM OF THE ENGINE! YOU'LL HAVE TO DRAIN THE OIL, AND REMOVE THE OILPAN! ON SOME VEHICLES, YOU HAVE TO UNBOLT THE ENGINE MOUNTS, AND RAISE THE ENGINE ENOUGH TO REMOVE THE OIL PAN, SO YOU CAN GET INSIDE
the oil will NOT drain out of the filter mounting but will drain out of the plug on the oilpan(sump).located under the engine,at the bottom of the oil pan.use a new washer when replacing it,and only use a ring spanner(wrench)to remove it.you may have to remove the splash guard to get to the underside of the engine.(if fitted to your car)
It may be the rear engine seal where the tranny shaft sticks into the engine. I am assuming it is a standard shift of course. Please be kind with the thumbs up rating. I am only guessing and can't see the leak area. Thanks, Raz
Is it 4WD? if so, I believe your truck may unfortunately be of the vintage where in order to replace the oil pan you need to either remove the engine or front end. If the oil leak in the pan isn't horrible, you may be better off to invest in a quality steel epoxy. Drain the oil, dry it with brakleen real well and goop it up with epoxy.
see if anything is stopping you from removeing the oil pan make sure you have a jack r somthing under the oilpan in case it drops make sure all bolts have been removed check for hiden 1s you might be surprised it shoul come free if not come back to me
