DO I HAVE TO COMPLETELY DROP THE OIL PAN TO REMOVE THE FRONT ENGINE CASE?

1994 Mitsubishi Mighty Max • 150,000 miles

Bad oil leak at highway speeds - a quart in 75 miles at 70 mph, but very little around town. Have replaced all seals, so am ready
as last resort to replace front case gasket. Haynes sez to remove the oil pan
Can I just loosen the bolts, letting it drop a little, and get the case off?

thanks, Tom

already donaated $2 in wrong section.

With the pick up tube, it may have to come all the way out, check it to verify when you drop it.

As far as the oil leak, did you check the pcv? If it is clogged, it would push oil out all over the place.
