Oil pan replacement

I have a 2008 wk 3.7. I wonder if there is an easier way to change the oil pan. The service manual says the motor has to be lifted so the pan can clear the pickup tube when removing. Does anyone know if the cross member can be removed instead. I've always done my own work, and I don't want to stop now. To have a shop do it would be upwards of a $1000. That's BS! The parts only cost $100. it's only a matter of time until it rusts through. No leaks yet.

I got it off without the lift, but my friend was not so lucky.

Re: Oil pan replacement

Pain in the ass Job I must say. Just did it on my 05 3.7. If you can get the entire front diff unbolted and remove that square thing that's bolted to the pumpkin part you should be able to get the oil pan in.

The bolts are a pain especially the ones in the rear. Good luck and take your time. This is a big job and I would highly suggest you know what your doing and have the right tools. It's going to take a few hours at least.

This can be done without pulling the motor/dropping subframe/front diff but its going to take some work and make sure you have someone that can help you out. Good luck.

Also, the gasket baffle can get really worked onto the pan fyi.

Re: Oil pan replacement

After all that work, it looks like my Trans cooler is leaking. More inspection required.

Re: Oil pan replacement

I need to do replace the oil pan my '06 WK 3.7. One of the corners scaled pretty bad and you can see oil starting to seep through. Thanks for pioneering.
