007- That should be about it. You might want to loosen all of the bolts a little bit before actually removing them so that one bolt doesn't become over torqued and be a pain to get it off. Not sure how tight the bolts are on your pan. You have a new gasket with the pan? Other than that, sounds like you have it covered!

I have the service manuel. Just got the parts. I've taken the exhaust off, so now all I have to do is unbolt the pan. Now is there anything else that I should know that might surprise me.
Changing it seems pretty simple. Just unbolt than bolt the new one back one. And replace the gasket.
Tell me if there are any hidden things so that when I change it I don't see something else fall out.

I removed all the bolts holding it, but now it won't come off. Is there some type of vacumn? And if so how can I take it off? Pry it with a screw driver?

More than likely there is some permatex type material in the gasket that is helping it hold and fill holes. Take a putty blade, and wedge it between the pan and the block, and work it around. Don't worry about the old gasket since you have a new one. Just make sure you go straight with the flat edge of the pan, so as not to gouge it leaving a possible leak area. I am not sure how soft the metal is, but I don't think it should be easily damaged. Just don't use a screwdriver. That is too blunt of an object.

Be careful when you go to tighten the pan back up. Use a torque wrench and tighten to the correct specs. Aluminum can strip out really easily.

I tried using a rubber malet to dislodge it but it seems like its stuck really good.
I need one of those putty blades.
