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
