Will i have to remove motor to replace oil pan gasket on a 2001 gmc sonoma 2.2l 5 speed

You may have to loosen the transmission also to get enough room to remove it without taking the motor out. Make sure your pan is not cracked first. Also be careful when lifting the motor as to not damage anything on top of the engine.
