The oil pan can only beremoved by removing the engine from the truck, most shops charge about 10 hours of labor. Some techs can replace the gasket by lifing the engine off the mounts as far as it can go,remove the oil pans bolts and fish out the gasket. This is very heard work even on a lift, stil takes about 4 hours to do. I would not recommend this proceedure unless you are a experanced tech.

The gear at the end of the distributor has been known to wear out on the 4.3 liter engine. You can replace the gear, sometimes the camshaft gear gets damaged, but not offten.
