Re: oil pan gasket replace, 2005 5.4L
I haven't seen it done on anything that new, but on older trucks, I've see where they've unbolted the motor mounts and raised the engine enough to ge the pan to partially clear the cross member enough to slip a gasket in there. Bear in mind that of the mating surfaces require serious cleaning, this method is a real pain.
Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?
Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
