Default 2000 Grand Cherokee Oil Pan Removal

Hi...
I got all the necessary steps complete.(just to avoid un-needed responses)

The truck is up, the y-pipe is disconnected from ex-manis, ect...

The 18 bolts are out from the oil pan. It took a bit, but the pan is pryed down about 1/2 inch all around, but it won't drop any further. Chilton's doesn't mention any other connections to remove...Please help.

The oil pick up tube could be catching the flange inside the bottom of the pan.
if thats the case then you may have to do some wiggling to get it off.

Default Gasket/windage tray stuck

Thanks Dan....What part of CT...

I found that the gasket,windage tray need to separated from the pan. What a *****. No room to smack a hammer to chisel it off. I'm about 90% done but the last 8inches are very tough. (Tight space) When my arms recover from hammering, I will report back....

Welcome to CF. Chiltons' sucks.
Did you remove the starter? The manual says to remove the oil pump pick-up tube (as Dan stated), and the pan gasket/windage tray from the block.
Also the trans. to oil pan support brace.

Default 2000 Grand Cherokee oil pan gasket

How important is the windage tray, and what does it actually do? It was such a ***** separating it from the oil pan itself. I can straighten it out and use some black RTV, but If it's not absolutely necessary, can I omit it?. I had to replace a piston, that is why I had to remove it in the first place....

I just did my oil Pan gasket last night. THe same thing happened to me, it was caught on the starter. The book said to remove the starter, of course I am a guy with a wrench so obviously I didnt read the book first! Anyway, I found that will a lil bit of wiggling, i didnt need to remove the starter. I got it out and back in with the starter in place. Remember, its all metal, if your just using your hands, you wont hurt anything. Now I have to say that i have 4.0 so I dont have any issues with the cross pipe and I am not really sure how close the starter is to the pan.
