You need to get the motor up high to get the pan out, and if its a 4x4 the front axle is in the way too.
And dont let pep boys do this. Most of them are kids still in high school or they cant get a job in a real garage.

SOURCE: Check engine light
A multi misfire may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
Faulty spark plug or wires, Faulty coil (pack), Faulty oxygen sensor(s), Faulty fuel injector(s), Stuck/blocked EGR valve / passages, Faulty camshaft position sensor, Defective computer.
The engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wire, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the the problems were faulty fuel injectors.
Random misfires that jump around from one cylinder to another (read: P030x codes) also will set a P0300 code. The underlying cause is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak in the intake manifold or unmetered air getting past the airflow sensor, or an EGR valve that is stuck open.
Good luck and hope this information helps, keep me posted, be glad to help you get the truck running 100% again. Not sure if your running a K&N air filter, and if you are there may be a flim of oil on the MAF sensor that is making you run lean. You may want to spray down the MAF sensor with a can of MAF cleaner.

Why did you replace battery in the first place Before checking out the reason of why it wouldent start???????????.
1st when you turn the key does the starter motor click
2ndTurn on headlights and then try starting ,do the lights go out (yes/no) 3rdThe Alternator only does the charging not the starting
BUT YOU say you can jump it and it will start ???????????????
Well that still puts it down to either the Starter OR the BATTERY is no good unless you have a24 volt system (which you havent)
So check the Red + lead from the battery to Starter motor for good tight fit ,,and the Black -lead to any engine bolt and also to the body (2 wires 1thick 1 thinner Black leads ) good tight fit ,,
The funny hum you can hear would be the fuel pump working and that is in the fueltank But just check under the bonnet and make sure that
its not coming from the alternator as sometimes it get a short inside and will flattern the battery in 3minutes (that also has a Red feed wire going to it.
SO LET ME KNOW HOW YOU GET ON Ron

Hello! I'll need a little clarification...What size engine is installed in the vehicle? How did you determine that the engine looses spark? When you say spontaneously or at times; Is there a relationship to a cold or hot engine? Guru............saailer
