Answer 1
Disconnect battery ground cable, then remove oil dipstick. Raise and support vehicle, then drain engine oil. Remove front drive axle, exhaust crossover and transmission lower cover. Remove oil pan and gasket. Reverse procedure to install. Apply in corner of cap and block. Tighten attaching bolts to specifications The simple answer is yes but very involved. Why are you doing this?? roy -
