You're probably going to have to unbolt the motor mounts and jack the engine up. The oil pan also bolts to the transmission, so don't forget about those. I changed pans when I replaced my engine, so I can't give you exact directions, but you will have to jack the engine up a little to get the pan to clear the crossmember. It's not super difficult, just time-consuming.

Then cut the bolts, they will break if you try to take them out anyways.
