    Im actually kind of embarrased to ask this but aaaa... what should a guy do if his oil pan will not come off?:crazy: Ive tryed claw hammers, a shovel handle ramming it, screwdrivers, prybars.... this thing will not come off. I actually bent my framing hammer prying between the oil pan and starter lol:haha:

    You sure you have all the bolts out? Theres a 7/16" bolt at the 4corners. Try taking a rubber mallet and hitting it against the side of the pan. Dont do it to hard but a good blow willbreak the seal on the side and then you can pull it down to seperate from the other side. Good luck

    yea i had all the bolts off... i finally got it off today.... i used the entire can of that gasket remover on it and let it sit overnight. I went and grabed the biggest hammer i had and the smallest screw driver i owned and just hammer the piss out of it. Broke the front lose enought to fit the claws of my hammer and and pryed on it hard and pop, she came off.
