need to replace the oil pan gasket on 1992 GMC Sonoma

how do i change the oil an gasket without removing the engine?

Asked by for the 1992 GMC Sonoma
you have to jack the motor off the mounts and support it to remove the oil pan. very labor intensive job

i could just use a floor jack right? or would it be better to use a cherry picker?
a cherry picker would be better will not be in the way
