No need to pull the engine. But you have to unbolt the motormount and lift the engine on one side to change the gasket. You should be able to just slide the gasket in and bolt the pan back up.


Have you tried tightening your bolts? Have heard of guys pulling the oil pan bolts, one at a time, cleaning them with brake clean and then reinstalling them with Blue Loctite (#242).

I changed my oil pan by just lifting the engine a few inches. Wasn't that big a deal at all, didn't even have to remove the pick-up tube. Just loosen the motor mounts and the trans mount before lifting. I actually made a bracket to mount to the engine so I could use a hydraulic jack instead of a engine hoist, that made it real easy.

Take the valve covers off the top,remove both motor mount bolts and lift the motor up at the front lift point just high enough to allow you to slide the pan out.

they are harder on the newer trucks but little bit more room on the 12 valves, but yes you will have to pull the motor mounts, you should be able to do it in one afternoon
good luck its kind of a dirty job

I'd say you don't want to use red because like you said it's permanent and most of the time you have to heat the bolt up to get it out. Blue is just a medium strength hold. which means it holds enough where the bolt won't fall out but where if needed you can still take it out.
