I have a very rusty looking oil pan on my 98 SOHC. Are these known to fail from rust? Is there clearance to remove it and replaced without raising the engine, etc? Would I want to replace rod bearing while I am in there?

I have not tried myself but think I vaguely recall reading that there is not clearance for removal without raising the engine.
