02 Ex - oil pan removal question

We need to pull the oil pan to check the pickup tube to ensure it's okay as we are having oil circulation issues.

Is it possible to pull the plan and do that without pulling the engine?

Advice please.

i have heard of people loosening the motor mounts and lifting the engine about 2 inches to get it out. i have never done this as i have always pulled the motor (to do other things and changed oil pan gasket at same time). I had a friend that cut the frame brace out and changed the gasket that way and then welded it back in. I wouldnt do that but he said it was easier than pulling the engine. What ever works best for you is up to you. good luck

I have changed oil pans on 7.3 by pulling the trans and jacking the engine up on one side. The hardest part is the oil pick up tube that is bolted in the front. Hope this helps.

I would pull it, that way you can be sure your pan is back on and sealed good. Those pans are really sealed on the block from the factory and tough to get off I can't imagine trying to get it off while it is still in the truck with limited room. I have heard of guys cutting there cross member and rewelding all I have to say to that is , not on my truck.

Thanks guys - pulling the motor. The other way doesn't seem like a great idea!
