on a more serious note, its really easy, just make sure the area where the gasket goes is all clean on both halves of the pan, also it wouldnt hurt to dip your finger in some oil and rub it on the new gasket so it sets easily. make sure that when you tighten the pan back up do the bolts that are opposite of each other so you dont put stress on the pan, and tighten them up so that they are just tight enough to hold the lower half against upper half, then go over all of them again and tighten them up the rest of the way
Yeah... the oil pan is very similar to installing a valve cover gasket... you gotta be careful when torquing the bolts down after replacement... spec is 109in. lbs. per bolt... (which isnt very much lol)
