Oil pan gasket removal question

Post by YellowJacket » Mon May 15, 2017 11:07 am

Can anyone tell me if replacing the oil pan gasket is an easy job? From looking at the engine schematic I want to make sure pulling the oil pan does not first require pulling the engine front cover, which would be a lot more involved. It looks like several bolts may pass through the lower part of the engine front cover into the end of the oil pan. Do I just need to loosen them without disturbing the front cover, then loosen the oil pan bolts to remove it? Also, will the oil pan gasket require any sealant, or just straight removal and replacement? Thanks in advance.
