Oil Pan Removal

Hello all. This may be a dumb question, but I was wanting to know if the oil pan on my 05 F350 6.0l can be removed fairly easily. Can I simply unbolt it and remove it?? I ask this question because this is my first diesel. I've removed several on gas motors in the past just need to know if the diesel is any diffrent. Thanks in advance, any input will be greatly appreciated.

I believe you have to remove the motor mounting bolts and jack the motor up slightly.

The more experienced ones with chime in, im sure.

unbolt engine mount nuts at frame. lift engine 2" you may wisy to remove the fan shround to prevent damage. if you dont and you break something I will laugh .
unbolt the oil pan slide it back drop the pick up tube down and let if fall in the pan then slide the pan out.

Thanks I had a feeling I would have to raise the motor. Was wishful thinking I wouldn't have to. I'm going to remove it because it is seeping oil. Would you recomend Ford factory gasket or is there a better aftermarket one??

ford gaskets.
make sure to place something under the motor mounts so the engine does not fall before you want it to.

Pay attention to the bolts, they are not all the same length. There are long bolts that go in the front and rear of the oil pan.

Take a long bolt and try it in each hole hand tight. You should be able to tell which ones take the short bolt.

using a floor jack is a bit on the unsafe side... been there done that. use a block of wood under the balance. once the motor is up use something as a support under the motor mount. do not stick your fingers or hands any were they can be crushed while doing this. I use 2 large sockets wuth extensions as handles so I dont stick my hands in the wrong place.

What's the balance or am I reading this wrong?
