first is their anything in the way of the oil pan bolts. if not simply drain the oil remove the bolts and scrape the old gasket. be careful not to gouge the block and try to use a rubber gasket if available. and get the torque specs. don't use sealant unless you nick the block. also the pan may not be at fault just the gasket.
