If you do determine it is the oil pan, I recommend using a small crow bar to break the oil pan loose. I just took mine off and it was a bit of a pain but with a crowbar you can break the seal from the front. There is no solid gasket but a sticky liquid gasket must have been used. I bought permatex ultra black and put it back on tonight. There was a little panel on the driver's side that covered three bolts holding the pan on. There are three bolts holding that panel on as well.
