Engine is 3.8 was thinking of pulling oil pan to see if rod was broken.Will not turn pulling or using a large braker bar on crank what can I do other than new motor?

a good used motor. even if you drop the pan, it still has to come out and either be overhauled or replaced.

Thanks,I am just afraid if I get it out with all them wires I won't get them all back in right.


OK I have started one more Question would it be easier to take out standard tranny with motor?I am sure If you don't mind once I get motor out I will have a FEW lol more question.

you will have to remove it first as there will not be enough room to get both out together.
