And once you remove the five front sump (oilpan) bolts, take them to the vise 
and slot the heads with a hacksaw. This way you can use a screwdriver to remove 
or replace them the next time without loosening the engine mounts. I do the 
initial tightening or loosening with a little 90 degree screwdriver and then 
use a long thin screwdriver to speed the bolts in or out.
