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.

Did you have trouble with the oil pan bolts at the transmission? I'm getting ready to pull my oil pan and I'm curious.
