Dodge Neon Sport Oil Pan Removal

Q. Hello, I have a 1995 Dodge Neon Sport, 2.4 liter DOHC engine and manual transmission. I was wondering if there was any way possible to remove the oil pan without taking off the front engine mount. I can get a wrench onto the bolt but can't loosen it because there isn't enough room.

I'm going to try getting a set of S-wrenches to aid in this but am I just beating a dead horse or what? I've tried taking the front engine mount off but need an air wrench. It seems the bolts are seized in place. I've tried putting a jack underneath the engine to hold it up to no avail.

An impact wrench would work but I don't have the resources or a way to get a compressor and the wrench here to take the bolts off. Plus there are bolts on the front side of the engine that the impact wrench won't be able to get to.

Looking for hope,
Craig

A. I always use a ¼" drive rachet, extension and socket to get the oil pan bolts out. I never had to drop an engine mount to get it out.

You have to come up from underneath the oil pan. You will see where the pan is bent to allow access with the aforementioned tools.
