if its stuck on with the old gasket.......just get a small pry bar or flat tip screwdriver and GENTLY,VERY EASILY pry out between the block and the pan. when it starts to drop, most of the time you can just pull and it'll separate the rest of the way.

stick with the flathead... not a pry bar! too much torque on the thin pan with a pry bar. a flathead is sufficient and is small enough to get in the tight spaces. i am definitely 100% supporting what tacomaman said!

i was going to try a screwdriver and pry on it. but i was kind of hesitant b/c i have heard so many people say that it might ruin the lip of the pan, which would be bad news. i wanted to consult with the professionals before i go any further. now that i got good info., at my next oil change i will definitely replace. thanks guys.

Tie a chain around it and the other end to a tree and then put it in reverse and slam on the gas pedal. If it dosent come off that way I dont kknow what to tell you. Oh yeah before any one gets upset with my advice be sure to use a torque wrench.

It's not removing the oil pan from the block as much as removing the pan from underneath all together. I'm reading my manual and it says that you have to remove front steering stabilizer, exhaust from manifold, remove cross member, ac compressor and alternator. Looks like an all day job.
