    Because of so much sludge etc. in the oil system, the oil pickup screen
    gets covered with debris causing the oil light to come on. I have jacked up
    the car, removed all the visible bolts from the oil pan as well as the three
    attached to the bell housing, but the pan will not drop. Also I jacked up
    the engine to get above the stearing rack / cross bracing. What could I be

    Perhaps it was installed with gasket sealant, and you'll have to cut
    through or pry off the pan, ripping the gasket apart?

    Of course, you'll have to scrape the mating surfaces clean before
    reinstalling the pan...
