HiCustomer, Thank you for using JustAnswer.You are on the right track, I would pull the ign coil fuse and the fuel pump fuse. As for sealing the pan after its bolted up. The sealer should be applied brfore installing the pan

Sorry I missed you online.
I need to know what kind of sealer? The gasket sealer that comes in a can and is applied with a small sponge? Because I did not see a gasket anywhere on the oil pan.
It uses a liquid gasket applied with a roller.
There is also a special tightening sequence for the pan.
