Long story short a previous owner mutant gorilla destroyed my oil pan.

Anybody swapped one out? It looks like I can pull it relatively easily. Any caveats?

Anybody done it before?

just like you said it comes out pretty easy. no engine cradle hoist needed I would use a good gasket too do it once right. good luck keep us updated.

The oil pan is sealed with a sealant, not a gasket. I would suggest reading the service manual before attempting this because there is a procedure to do it right, and there is a special tool required (guide pins). I don't think it would be very hard for someone with experience working on cars, but it should be done correctly.

I don't have access to the manual. What tool specifically do I need?
Also is the sealant an RTV?

Thanks for the info.
