Default Removing the oil pan

I removed all the bolts that hold the oil pan in, even the one that holds the dipstick level. I pried and hammered away, but I can't get it to budge. Am I missing something?

yes, a screw driver and a hummer.

go around it tapping it until you get the screw driver in there. It's not easy to bend the lip, but watch out.

Use a stiff bladed scraper. Tap it in to the pan by tapping on the end of the handle and then tap on the blade and use it like a knife to cut through the sealant. A screw driver is more likely to damage the block.

Don't worry so much about scraping the block... as long as it isn't more then 1.5mm deep or so, then it'll fill in with the sealant when you install the new one.

Note: Use a good sealant to seal the pan on. I personally use Hondabond (yes, like the stuff from Honda dealerships).

Well, yea... use a flat head
If the engine is out of the car, use a scraper. I found it easier to use a screw driver, you can catch a lip of the OIL pan, and just pry it up with minor hitting.

An occasional wisecrack is usually accepted. But the 'Off-topic' forum is generally reserved for saying something that's on your mind.

Well, it was tactless. Something I have a reputation for.(just couldn't leave a line like that laying around! besides, it may have been a freudian slip as the 'u' is miles away from the 'a' on the kbd!)

'Tact is NOT saying out loud what everyone is thinking.'
