My 98 has a leaky oil pan gasket and I'm wondering if someone on here can tell me if I can replace it without removing the engine? I bought a shop manual on eBay for $40 and it's been worth every penny as I've replaced the timing belt, water pump, all cv boots have been replaced, front outer cv joints replaced, and all fluids replaced (power steering, brake and clutch, front and rear differential, etc.), all done with oem parts. But I can't find in the shop manual if the oil pan can come off without removing the motor. Love the vehicle, it has 233K miles on it after purchasing January 2015.

Thanks

I looked into some how to videos because my 2000 needs this also. The engine can stay, but the front exhaust pipe needs to come off. There are some say those bolts are a major pain and some say they came right off. That is the reason I haven't attempted mine yet. I don't wan't to have to deal with broken studs on the exhaust manifold.
