    Before I start breaking bolts does anyone know if there are issues with removing the pan on a 2000 explorer sport 4wd. I got under and it looks like a piece of cake but in some posts people are taking about removing the engine and stuff.

    OHV or SOHC. I'm pretty sure that matters. I know that with an OHV you have to remove the engine. Not sure about the SOHC

    4X4 SOHC you have to remove the engine. On a 4x2 it can be done in the vehicle. I see where some people have done it in a 4x4 with out removing the engine, but they almost all say next time they are pulling the engine.

    It is a SOHC.

    You can drop the lower pan (steel part) on the SOHC without any trouble. The upper half (aluminum part)... Thats a different story.
