you can do it but really how long does it take to fix oil leak if tou dont seal the sump right,the mtr doesnt really take that long to pull out especially if u know the vehicle depending on your equipment
yeah but when you dont have an engine crane, or a place in your garage to attach an endless chain to, its a bit hard to just decide,
"Hey i am going to pull the motor out to change the sump"
if there is an oil leak, i am sure i can top it up, :) but i am pretty confident it will seal just fine
jack the engine up an inch or 2 and put blocks of wood in between the engine mounts
I normally remove the mount bolts, jack up the engine, put the bolts back in the engine mounts and let the engine back down. The bolts now sit up on top of the lower "saddles", giving you enough room. No need to find bits of wood, and they won't slide out.....
