Default How to swap Oil Pan in 99 RS??

Hello All,

Well I have a 99 RS and I am about to swap out the oil pan on it. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with swapping the pan, and if so then maybe they could give me some pointers as to how to go about it. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated!!

The best way I've found is to remove the bolts that hold the engine mounts to the cross member, and jack the engine up. This gives you enough clearance to get to those pesky rear bolts. This was my weapon of choice, didn't take me long to get them out:

One strange quirk I noticed when I was jacking up the engine. As soon as I put any pressure upward, the thermostat housing started leaking. Drip, Drip, Drip. nothing bad, and when I took the jack down it stopped. Not sure what the heck was going on, but with everything put back together it hasn't proven to be a problem.

How exactly do you go about jacking up the engine? Since I am selling my car within the next couple of weeks I am afraid of messing more stuff up!

Thanks for the reply chicksdigwagons!
