I am taking my oil pan off so

I am taking my oil pan off so I have taken all of the nuts and the pan has dropped about 3/4 of an inch. It seems to be hung up on some thing I can't see anything. I pulled the dip stick and it still wont move. Sorry for asking a stupid question.
Thanks for all of your help

Hey - I've got the record

Hey - I've got the record on stupid questions and that's not one.

I think that it is hung up on the dipstick guide tube.

>>I think that it is hung up on the dipstick guide tube.<<

yes the entire dipstick guide tube assembly must be unscrewed from the side of the block and removed before the pan & windage tray assembly will finish dropping out.

it's a lot better & cheaper & smarter to ask than to break things..

I pulled the dip stick tube and the guide tube and the pan dropped about 1 1/2". Now it is stuck on some thing on the other side. I see the oil temp censor and I will pull that out but that is not what it is catching on.

Success I pulled the temp cens

Success I pulled the temp censor and with a simple adjustment of the angle of the dangle the pan came right off. Thanks for every thing you guys rock.
