No puking allowed. Those numbers sound excellent. To pull the oil pan off the motor has to be lifted up. The problem with taking the oil pan off in the car is that you'll never get it to seal correctly. The two surfaces have to be really clean when you put them back and you don't use silicone you use the red stuff that I can't remember the name of right now that dries in the absence of oxygen. I would not try that unless you're going to pull the motor. I've done it but I have a lift and I was able to get a long screwdriver in on the bottom of the block and the top of the oil pan and get everything sanded down and got the old sealant off and was able to get it to seal without leaking but it's very difficult. The sealant is called anaerobic sealant. I would definitely recommend against doing that. Let us know how it goes. You may just have to isolate which lifter it is and replace the one.
