check underneath the vehicle..there is a pan that has a bolt on it thats your oil pan..follow pan up and see how far up in engine it goes..i personally never worked on one of those but on other cars i never had to pull engine out..just remove 10-15 bolts dump oil remove pan put gasket on put it back on tighten it and put oil in

If you have the Northstar V8 and you don't know if the head gaskets have been done I wouldn't put a lot of money in this car! Northstar blow head gaskets. It's a $3500+ job when they do! The engine and transmission must come out from the bottom of the car to do the job. There's no other way. About the oil pan gasket. It wouldn't surprise me if the engine and transmission have to come out to change the oil pan gasket. Unless it's leaking badly I wouldn't bother. To remove the engine and transmission is a major job! That price quote tells me the shop has no idea what they're getting into. I'll repeat, the engine, if it must come out, must come out with the transmission from the bottom of the car! HTH. -Jim
