Unfortunatly since it is a double sump pan the engine has to come out. If you have access to a lift it can be done in one day.

i would unbolt the motor and trans and lift it up enough to clear the oil pan out without acualy removing the motor, save you quite a bit of time in ****ing with all the wireing and everything
