Re: can you pull the oil pan with engine in the truck
So I did manage to get the oil pan out, but I had to take out the oil pump and pickup tube, then remove my radiator and take it out the front. Its really tight in there. I am going to replace all four since I got the pan out, but I am concerned about getting a good seal on the pan. I am not sure if I should run a bead of atv on the block or the pan and if I should do it before or after I wiggle the pan back in there. My old s10 had the 2.8 and its pan had a cork style gasket. This one does not. I think I will go ahead and replace the forward and aft seals while its off.
