This thing about glue interest me.  I just assumed it was held bolted  
in; I didn't know they used glue on them.  Should I also be using  
glue when I put it back in?  Any particular kind of glue?

I'll pry around the edges until I get the pan to pop off.  I was  
worried that I'd missed a bolt in some odd place or something, and I  
didn't want to bend the pan apart.

I'll get a breaker bar for the oil pan and see if that helps.  I  
guess I don't really need to worry about breaking it.  I was having  
trouble getting a lot of torque as I have the car on jack stands and  
can't quite get as much weight behind it as I'd like.
