Has anyone replaced there oil pan gasket. Was thinking i could remove motor mount bolts, and using a block of wood jack up the harmonic balancer and raise the motor up. just need enough room to clear the pump. Any thoughts , am i off track.? If you have done this before please share your expert opinion. Thanks for looking!!

No gasket used here, Toyota uses 3-Bond 1207 FIPG (Form In Place Gasket) paste.

Are you ABSOLUTELY certain the leak is from the joint between the upper (aluminum) and lower (stamped steel) oil pans, and not leaking down from somewhere above?

If you do decide to try to pull the lower pan, all traces of the original FIPG and all traces of oil must be removed from both surfaces before applying new FIPG.
