the engine would need to be lifted up or removed to pull the pan... The oil pump is not hard to remove and replace once the pan is off the engine...I pulled the pump out of my 99 Sport right after I bought it thanks to massive sludge and a dead oil pump... When you pull the pump, check the driveshaft and make sure it is not broken...If something jammed in the pump teeth, the driveshaft can twist like a pretzel and break rendering the pump useless...
