Jack up the car, drain the oil, remove the oil level sensor, remove the pan bolts and lower it. however, this assumes you don't have a engine mount on the pan and the pan is clear to drop it. Otherwise it'* going to take a bit more effort.

lol it probably would considering I just use floor jacks.. I HATE using floor jacks, the oil pan is clear from what I can see, I just dont know where the sensors and such are, then again I haven't really looked.. I jsut notice that my oil pressure likes to drop real low occasionally while stopped at like a stop light.. I just put 10W in yesterday and noticed it drop way down later in the day at a light.. Also While I was draining the oil I noticed the pan was caked in oil+dirt and I thought well that seal must be leaking and causing my pressure to drop.

Ask and you shall receive! I'm sure Dan has a little something floating around on how to swap the gasket out. He'* got more car pictures of the insides of his car than most little girls have one armed face shots on facebook.

You do know you don't go under a car unless you have jack stands.

They have a word for what that is. My wife sends one of the kids out every now and then. My son yells if I don't have a jack stand under the car. I keep telling him jack stand are for when you jack it up, and you can't use them when you use ramps.
