Hi All,

I've been trying to work on my 1991 Ford Ranger XLT.
It has the 3.0 Engine in it.
I've been trying to find youtube videos, guides, etc on how to get the Oil Pan off without actually having to take the whole engine out (as 1. I don't have the tools, 2. I don't know how to rip an engine out).

My ranger has the steel frames that connect to the tires right under the Oil Pan, and I've seen a youtube video of where someone loosened the engine mounts and transmission mounts lifted the engine with a jack from the bottom and got it out.

My question is, would me jacking the transmission case be a wise way of doing it since I don't have an engine hoist?

My local automechanic said it will be $600 for labor only and I'm strapped for cash at the moment.

I took the oil pan off a 1997 3.0, I took all the pan bolts out and placed a jack where the transmission meets the engine and jacked it up a little the pan came right out and back in. I didn’t loosen anything on the engine or transmission
