I'll mention a caution about dropping the engine oil pan:
the rear 3 screws are difficult to access...you need to remove the clutch housing cover, and even then, I use a 1/4" drive ratchet with a 6" extension and a LOW PROFILE 1/2" universal socket.

https://www.lowes.com/pd/TEKTON-1-4-in-Drive-x-1-2-in-Universal-Joint-Socket-SHD08013/1003004510?cm_mmc=shp-_-c-_-prd-_-tol-_-google-_-pla-_-216-_-soshandtools-_-1003004510-_-0&placeholder=null&ds_rl=1286981&gclid=Cj0KCQiA-aGCBhCwARIsAHDl5x8oaYbgmwtZO_5AZVTAp6X6HPjZMl8qArCH-ph33dQ-s3uJZHQJ8NYaApMzEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

Those 3 screws actually go into the base of the rear engine seal retainer which is made from a rather soft metal. (All the rest of those pan screws go into the engine block, itself).

So it's a tricky job getting them nice and tight, without stripping out the holes. It can be aggrevating!
