You have to jack the engine up after removing the motor mount bolts on each side. Then once you have the engine jacked up a few inches, slide a piece of wood (2x4) in between the upper and lower parts of the motor mounts on each side. This will keep the engine elevated enough for you to drop the oil pan and replace the gasket. Then, just put all the bolts back in in the proper torque sequence, torque them all to spec,remove the wooden blocks from the motor mounts, slowly lower the engine back down and put the motor mount bolts back in.

It has to be at the lowest point of the oil pan. Perhaps a cover blocks you seeing it?

Is there more one oil drain plug in a 1978 Ford Fairmont and do you need to drain both pans? 302 engine

That vehicle is too old to look up online, but some of the older Ford engines (particularly the 302 or 5.0L) were eqipped with 2 drain plugs on the oil pan. One is way up front by the crankshaft pulley and the other is in the bottom of the pan in the usual place. Yes, it is required that you drain BOTH of them. You will leave about 1-1/2 quarts of old oil in the engine if you don't.

Cant locate starter motor where is on 302 cleveland

The starter is on the right hand side of your engine (passenger side in North America), down tight beside the oil pan, and bolted into the bell housing. You will have to get underneath the car to see it, as it will be hidden by the frame and exhaust from the top.

302 ci. 5.0 ltr . oil pump replacement

Why do you want to replace the oil pump? I am asking this question for good reason. Engines that have worn bearings will have low oil pressure, and replacing the pump will not solve this problem. If you are replacing the pump because of low pressure, then you really need to consider correcting the cause of the low pressure. To replace the pump, you need to remove the oil pan from the bottom of the engine, which will likely involve raising the engine. Once the oil pan is off, you can readily remove and replace the oil pump.

Would like to change oil pan on 1990 ford crown vic 5.0 302 cu/in how do i begin

Before you do, why do you want to change the pan? OK then, consider the sump, is it front or rear? Do you have room to drop the pan 6 inches and get it out? The oil sump is at the bottom of the pan. If not, you have to pull the motor mount bolts out and jack up the engine. Then pull it out. When you put in the new pan, use no adhesive on the gasket, none. Bolt that baby up, drop the engine, tighten everything up, fill her up with oil, you should be all set.

Sounds like the fuel pump is not working. I would find myself a repair manual and start reading about troubleshooting. If not interested in that I would call a repair shop.
