    Hi folks-

    I have a 98 Tacoma 2.7L auto 4x4 extra cab. Engine oil pan gasket is leaking. I tried tightening the bolts just a little, but they weren't loose and I didn't want to torque on them for fear of bending the pan.

    Problem is, to pull the pan it looks like I have to drop the front differential. I haven't looked at it closely yet, just wondering how big a job you guys think this is- I'm just a guy in his garage with a tool box, not a pro. Is this one best left to a shop?

    Who has done this one before? Pain in the neck?

    Thanks- JG
