my oil pan is leaking and im thinking its the seal, whats the easiest way to take the oil pan off, it looks like you have to raise up the engine to do this, is that right or is there an easier way??

Where is it leaking? If it is towards the driver side front, you might have a leaking gasket between the block and the oil filter adapter. That can often appear to be an oil pan leak, and is very common.

I'm with master486, lowering the k-member is how I would do it.

Just my .02. :thumsup:

ya but i do not know how to do the k member so im waiting on instructions from the pros :) haha

and ill look into the oil filter adapter, im pretty sure its not because there is no sign of oil around it and a very very distinct visual sign of oil all around the oil pan although i think most of it is the leak then it runs backward

thanks for the torque btw too

Oil pan retaining bolts -- tighten to 80-106 inch pounds
That is incorrect. The correct torque spec is 15 ft-lbs and then turn an additional 60 degrees.

To lower the k-member, you must remove the bolts holding it up to the framerail. You need a torx socket to remove them, and if you search for dropping k-member you should find the size you need.
