if it's the upper pan you have to pull the motor. if it's the lower you have to at least raise the motor. i raised mine right before the studs came out isolators. it was still a tight squeeze but even after making a tool i couldn't get it. i could get them all out but couldn't start them back in. fortunate for me i have an engine hoist.

**EDIT** my car is an IS300.

I'm a little confused. I'm not sure which one your referring to as the upper and lower, but when I replace my shift solenoid I had to remove the transmission pan (T-IV fluid) and the engine didn't have to be pulled or lifted. Please explain.

I'm asking about the engine oil pan (5W-30 fluid).

2jz motors have a 2 piece oil pan. the upper pan is aluminum & attaches to the block. lower pan(sump) is steel & attaches to the upper pan. if it leaking between the upper & the block then the motor has to be pulled out. if it's leaking between the upper & lower then you just have to raise the motor some to get to the back bolts on the lower pan.

Thanks for clearing that up.
