oil pan removal

Whats the trick to getting the oil pan off? I have the heads and intake and the front of the motor off already. The oil pan is off but I can't get it out of the car. I tried jacking the motor with no luck. Please say there is a way without dropping the cradle.

Oil Pan Replacement
Removal Procedure
Tools Required
J 33432-A Transverse Leaf Spring Compressor
J 42188 Ball Joint Separator
J 41803 Engine Support Fixture
J 28467-B Universal Engine Support Fixture

Remove the front cross-member. Refer to Front Suspension Cross-member Replacement in Front Suspension.
Remove the oil drain plug.
Drain the oil from the engine.

Remove the oil filter from the oil pan.

Remove the automatic transmission cooler line front and rear retaining clamp bolts (if equipped).
Remove the engine flywheel housing-to-oil pan bolts.

Remove the engine flywheel housing closeout bolts.

Disconnect the electrical connector and remove the engine oil level sensor.
Disconnect the engine oil temperature sensor electrical connector.


Important
It is not necessary to remove the oil pan (lower) in order to remove the oil pan assembly.

The original oil pan gasket is retained and aligned to the oil pan by rivets. When installing a new gasket, it is not necessary to install new oil pan gasket rivets.

DO NOT reuse the oil pan gasket. When installing the oil pan, install a NEW oil pan gasket.

Remove the oil pan bolts.
Remove the oil pan.
Removal of the oil pan (lower) will not provide access to the crankshaft oil deflector, crankshaft, or other internal engine components.


Important
DO NOT allow foreign material to enter the oil passages of the oil pan, cap or cover the openings as required.

Use care not to gouge, score, or damage the oil pan sealing surface.

Drill (3) out the oil pan retaining rivets (2) (if required).
Remove the oil pan gasket (1) from the oil pan.
Discard the gasket and rivets.


Remove the oil pan (lower) bolts (1-15), if required.


Separate the oil pan (upper) (1), gasket (2), and oil pan (lower) (3).
Installation Procedure

Important
All gasket surfaces should be free of oil or other foreign material during assembly.

The alignment of the structural oil pan is critical. The rear bolt hole locations of the oil pan provide mounting points for the flywheel housing cover. To ensure the rigidity of the power-train and correct transmission alignment, it is important that the rear of the block and the rear of the oil pan are flush or even. The rear of the oil pan must NEVER protrude beyond the engine block .

Do NOT reuse the oil pan gasket.

It is not necessary to rivet the NEW gasket to the oil pan.



Apply a 5 mm (0.20 in) bead of sealant GM P/N 12378190 or equivalent 20 mm (0.80 in) long to the engine block. Apply the sealant directly onto the tabs of the front cover gasket that protrude into the oil pan surface.


Install the oil pan (lower) (3) and gasket (2).


Notice
Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
Install the oil pan (lower) bolts (1-15). Tighten
Tighten the oil pan (lower) bolts to 12 N·m (106 lb in).

Tighten the bolts in a crossing pattern, alternating from side to side.

Apply a 5 mm (0.20 in) bead of sealant GM P/N 12378190 or equivalent, 20 mm (0.80 in) long to the engine block. Apply the sealant directly onto the tabs of the rear cover gasket that protrude into the oil pan surface.

Important
Be sure to align the oil gallery passages in the oil pan and engine block properly with the oil pan gasket.


Preassemble the oil pan gasket to the pan.
Install the gasket onto the oil pan.
Install the oil pan bolts to the pan and through the gasket.
Install the oil pan, gasket and bolts to the engine block.
Tighten the oil pan bolts finger tight. Do not over-tighten.
Install the two lower flywheel housing bolts to position the oil pan correctly.
Tighten the lower flywheel housing bolts finger tight. Do not over-tighten. Tighten
Tighten the oil pan-to-block and oil pan-to-oil pan front cover bolts to 25 N·m (18 lb ft).
Tighten the oil pan-to-rear cover bolts to 12 N·m (106 lb in).
Tighten the flywheel housing bolts to 50 N·m (37 lb ft).


Install the left side closeout and bolt. Tighten
Tighten the left side closeout bolt to 12 N·m (106 lb in).


Install the right side closeout and bolt. Tighten
Tighten the right closeout cover bolt to 12 N·m (106 lb in).



Connect the engine oil temperature sensor connector.
Install and connect the engine oil level sensor. Tighten
Tighten the oil level sensor to 35 N·m (26 lb ft).

Install the automatic transmission cooler pipe front retaining clamp bolt. Tighten
Tighten the automatic transmission cooler pipe front retaining clamp bolt to 12 N·m (106 lb in).

Install the automatic transmission cooler pipe rear retaining clamp bolt. Tighten
Tighten the automatic transmission cooler pipe rear retaining clamp bolt to 2.5 N·m (22 lb in).



Install the oil filter to the oil pan. Tighten
Tighten the oil filter to 30 N·m (22 lb ft).

Install the oil drain plug. Tighten
Tighten the oil drain plug to 25 N·m (18 lb ft).



Install the front cross-member to the vehicle. Refer to Front Suspension Cross-member Replacement in Front Suspension.
Fill the engine with oil.
Fill the transmission fluid.

You have to drop the cradle. No big deal really.

Please read some of the threads on locktiting or keying the bolt that holds on the pulley. The harmonic balancer doesn't want to stay on well after it has been removed and replaced. :(

Where do you support the car if you drop the cradle? Since I have drop the cradle, I figured I might as well just pull the motor, and change the rod bolts, install the clutch, slave and master cyclinder, and fix an outputshaft leak. Looking at it, it seems possible to just to unbolt the motor from the bell housing and slide it forward, can that be done? I have never torn aprt a c5 before or messed with the torque tube.
