Can't you just place a floor jack under the oil pan with a piece of 2x6 in between to spread the stress?

Some of the cast aluminum pans will not hold up. I have seen some break under the presure.

On some cars you can, I am planing to replace a transaxle in brother car.
A 96 Toyota Camry 4 cyl. The oil pan on that car is weak.

Use a similar set up all the time...never had a problem. Use it on all motors, incl. the transverse v8's (like the Northstars). Handy tool to have around.
