2 Answers

really no different than any other model. 1.) drain the oil at the plug 2.) with a small ratchet 1/8 drive and 10mm socket (might be a 7/16) undo the pan bolts in a criss-cross fashion until the last one drops. 3) inspect and clean with a soft rag and scraper any traces of gasket that remain, pan and block 4) install new pan gasket gingerly tightening to 10 ft lbs in a criss cross fashion 5) oil filter....done
