[TR] Stuck Oil Pan

Would some heat melt some of that sealant, without lighting the engine on fire of course?  Use a heat gun not a touch.

Otherwise, or in addition to that, I’d think a thin putty knife and a hammer to tap along the seam may be your best bet to break that seal and not mangle the pan trying to pry it off.

Good luck and let us know how it goes.
