  • Remove both left and right side engine mount through bolts (Fig. 104).
  • Raise engine to provide clearance to remove oil pan.
  • Place blocks of wood between engine brackets and lower mounts to provide stability to engine.
    NOTE: Do not pry on oil pan or oil pan gasket. Gasket is mounted to engine and does not come out with oil pan.
  • Unbolt oil pump pickup tube and remove tube and oil pan gasket from engine.
