how to remove 5.2L oil pan
i have been spending the past few hours trying to drop my oil pan on my 94 5.2L ZJ. i removed all the bolts to the pan, dropped the exhaust, starter, removed engine mount bolts and raised the engine up a bit but still feels like it is getting caught up on something at the back end. My oil pan does not have the low oil sensor. the pan is hanging about 3 inches down but just can weasel it all the way off... any advice or tips??? Thanks
I think the sump filter hangs down low enough that it's not going to come out while the engine is still in the Jeep. That wonderful cross member is going to screw you.
