Creative ways to remove Engine oil pan

I dont really have the ability to lift the engine up, so was wondering how folks have managed to mess with the oil pan while leaving the engine bolted down?
Thanks

I have heard of cutting out and rewelding in the cross member. I have done the oil pan on cars where there was no gasket and just RTV successfully with the motor installed. No way would I cut the cross member out on my truck to experiment.

A diesel shop local to me does this and has had great luck with it. I think they use some kind of frame jig to keep the frame rails 100% in the same spot, but I'm not sure. My buddy actually had this shop replace his rotted oil pan this way, seemed to work great.

Re: Creative ways to remove Engine oil pan

Why would you even mess around doing this?

You can pick the engine in about an hour.

Well if I had to guess, a shop can replace a rotted pan a lot faster by getting out a sawzall, cutting the x-member, bolting in a new pan, and welding it back together. If you have a welder that is good at what he does, I think the whole job is far less labor intensive than pulling the engine.

Better be good welder to get that cross member welded up out of position under a vehicle. To the OP what is going on that you need to pull the pan.
