Bottom Oil Pan

I need a little advise here - please excuse my ignorance. I noticed a little leak around the bottom oil pan, therefore I will replace the gasket. But it doesn't look like straight forward "unbolt" process, I checked previous threads and are not very helpful, according to these threads it's not as easy as it looks and the bottom oil pan doesn't come out easy, apparently I have to remove some beams or supports, is this true? anything that I should know before I do it?
Thank you in advance

Re: Bottom Oil Pan

You sure the leak isn't coming from somewhere up higher?

Re: Bottom Oil Pan

I have been checking and checking, I can't see a leak coming from the top but it is oily-wet around the bottom oil pan. The only other chance could be from the transmission lines (passenger side) but they are dry in the fittings.

Re: Bottom Oil Pan

You could always try just snugging up the oil pan bolts if that's where the leak is coming from. Sometimes that helps, others not so much. Quick, easy thing to try.

Re: Bottom Oil Pan

You have to remove the cac tubes, ir Atleast loosen them, unbolt the motors mounts, and jack up the front if the engine until the studs on the motor mounts are flush with the frame. The nonce you get the lower pan unbolted you'll have to unbolt the pickup tube, the you can slide out the lower. Then you'll have to rage out the dipstick tube, then the the upper oil pan will unbolt and slide out.

Thumbs up Re: Bottom Oil Pan

Thank you guys for the advice. I already went down the truck and tighten up the bolts, the rear bolts of the oil pan were not tight, the front ones were ok and dry. I will leave it like that for a couple of day and I will see if I still get the oil drop on the driveway. After seeing the pain that is to remove the oil pan I better leave it like that. I am a little suspicious of the transmission bell where the engine joins the transmission. If the oil pan gasket is ok it may be leaking form the rear seal. I will let you know.
Thanks!

Re: Bottom Oil Pan

You guys with more knowledge than me....how far down the back does the rear cover come? If it gos all the way down, that could be a source of a leak.
