I have a 93 Cherokee and the oil pan has rusted through. How hard is this job and how will I get the pan out? It looks pretty big. Jeep experts please weigh in.

Thanks

They suck, it's a tight fit. They come out fairly easy, the hard part is getting them back in. I've seen and done them a few different ways. I've seen people disconnect the motor mounts and jacked the motor up with a picker. Jack the Jeep up and put a porta power between the frame and the axle. Jack the Jeep up and pull the pan, disconnect the oil pump, and slide it out. All of the above methods worked.
This is how the factory service manual tells you to remove the pan:
1. Disconnect battery.
2. Raise vehicle.
3. Remove drain plug, drain oil.
4. Disconnect exhaust pipe from exhaust manifold.
5. Disconnect exhaust hanger at catalytic converter and lower pipe.
6. Remove starter.
7. Remove flywheel torque converter housing cover.
8. Position jack stand under vibration damper(harmonic balancer/crank pulley).
9. Place 2x2 wood block between the jack stand and vibration damper.
10. Remove engine mount through bolts.
11. Using jack stand, raise the engine until adequate clearance is obtained to remove oil pan.
12. Remove oil pan bolts, and carefully remove pan and gasket.

When I have pan problems, I usually disconnect the front shocks (lower bolts) and raise the jeep up. This will give you plenty of clearance. I have a straight 6. It makes it so much easier to do it this way.
