  1. Disconnect negative cable from battery.
  2. Raise the vehicle.
  3. Remove the oil pan drain plug and drain the engine oil.
  4. Disconnect the exhaust pipe at the exhaust manifold.
  5. Disconnect the exhaust hanger at the catalytic converter and lower the pipe.
  6. Remove the starter motor.
  7. Remove the engine flywheel and transmission torque converter housing access cover.
  8. If equipped with an oil level sensor, disconnect the sensor.
  9. Position a jack stand directly under the engine vibration damper.
  10. Place a piece of wood (2 x 2) between the jack stand and the engine vibration damper.
  11. Remove the engine mount through bolts.
  12. Using the jack stand, raise the engine until adequate clearance is obtained to remove the oil pan.
  13. Remove transmission oil cooling lines (if equipped) and oxygen sensor wiring supports that are attached to the oil pan studs.
  14. Remove the oil pan bolts and studs. Carefully slide the oil pan and gasket to the rear. If equipped with an oil level sensor, take care not to damage the sensor.
