I have a question for anyone that can help me in this situation. I had to pull my transmission and I'm putting a used one back in my truck. I figured that while I had the transmission out I might as well get some of the other repairs done also. So I replaced the rear main oil seal and I was putting a new oil pan gasket in also. Well I got all the bolts out then realized that I may have to pull or lift the engine to get the pan out. I am also doing the rack and pinion at the same time. My question is will I be able to get the oil pan out without pulling the engine or renting a hoist? Any help will be greatly appreciated. 2005 Ranger XLT 3.0l Automatic transmission.
