Oil pan removal

"I am going in"
I am tracking down this ticking noise that sounds like valve problems but a little more persistant but I have a couple of questions. #! what type oil does all you guys use in the 1.3 liter eng I was considering something heavy like straight 50 wt to quiet the noise but I am wayyyy upstate in NY (almost CANADA=COLD)! I first made sure I had the valve clearence right then the timing to 10btdc but to no avail
#2 do you have to remove the engine to take off the oilpan... the only "Lifts" I have done is 215 size tires and 3 inch shackles if that helps...

Lifes tough...even tougher if you're stupid

Re: Oil pan removal

I use 10W40 synthetic, and it's about 0 - 10 degrees C winter (which is most of the time...) and about 18 - 22 in the summer here.

I removed the oil pan quite easily without removing anything else, especially not the engine. If I remember you have to unbolt the oil pickup tube inside the sump before it will come fully off. Also be carefull with the threads in the block, some of mine had to be re-threaded because the bolts just turned.

The streets are quiet like a sleeping army
