make sure the gasket surface on the pan is flat. Take a close look around the bolt holes in case the bolts were over-tightened and dished the flange on the pan. Other defects are usually from prying on the pan. If your pan is in too bad of shape a new quality pan (Spectra) runs about $130 from NAPA

I did not need to remove the engine mount, I used a tiny wrench that I bent and grinded smaller. But I had the same problem as the OP. The pan would not drop straight down. It seemed to be sandwiched between the front axle, and the oil pump. I used by hi-lift jack to lift the bumper a couple inches, and then the pan slid right out.
