I need to change my oil pan gasket as it has a bad leak.. How can I do it with it still in the car? I don't have a hoist just two smaller craftsman floor jacks..

You need a hoist. Something to raise the motor up a few inches. The windage tray hangs down about an inch or so, then the pick up tube to the bottom of the pad. Plus you'll need the clearence to get to the bolts that are blocked by the k-member. Even if you drop the k-member a little, you'll still need something to support the motor from the top.
