First of all, please forgive me if I have posted this question in the wrong place. I have been searching the forum and this is the closest I have come to the information I am seeking.
I need to lower the oil pan on my 98 2WD ( no differential in the way). The problem I am having is the oil filter adapter is in the way of the one last bolt I need to loosen to lower the pan.
I would like to remove the adapter and replace all the old gaskets, but I can't figure out how it is attached. I have a '97 GM shop manual that shows a hex head bolt in the center, but my '98 is different. It looks like an allen wrench goes into the center of the thing with the filter threads. I have tried loosening that fixture, it doesn't budge and I'm afraid to break something.
How do I remove the oil filter/cooler adapter thing?
Thanks in advance for your patience and wisdom.
