Default Oil Pan gasket replacement

Hello All, as stated in another post, my oil pan gasket has been leaking for a few years now. Not so much with in town driving but pretty good on a hiway trip. I find most say you can't pull the pan completely off the engine without pulling it out. I recall seeing some info awhile back on a method of leaning the engine side ways enough to get the pan out ??? any one know of this ?

I have seen the "drop enough" to get the gasket changed method but I wanted to go further with some cleaning.

I forgot what your driving and engine size

I just went through this issue, dropped my pan 3 times before I bit the bullet and bought a hoist and a stand, no matter how much you jack up the engine, the exhaust will hold it from coming all the way up, and the engine will hit the firewall.

If you disconnect the exhaust, remove the upper intake plenum, and a few other things, it is POSSIBLE, althought FRUSTRATING. Very FRUSTRATING. Very Very FRUSTRATING. I had to do it on my 1989 5.0, and trust me, you want to pull the motor, it's just a bit more work and a LOT LOT LOT LOT less frustrating.

Yea, don't skimp on the gasket, get the molded one peice rubber from Felpro, and make sure you put black rtv at the 4 corners, on each side of the timing chain cover, and on each side ofthe rear bearing cap.

Hey guys, This is my first post, just want to say hi and love this site.
I need to do mine too,i had a quick look a few days ago and thought it would just come right out.

MetallateM;
get under there and look
the oil pan depth covers the crank botton
think how when you take the pan loose as to how high the engine will have to be raised to install a new one piece gasket
not to mention the cleaning of the two surfaces
