    Things You'll Need
    Wheel blocks
    Bucket
    Socket wrench
    Clean rag
    Solvent
    Liquid gasket
    Torque wrench
    5 to 7 qt. of motor oil


    Instructions
    1
    Park the GMC Sierra on a level surface and set the parking brake. Be sure to block the rear wheels to keep them from rolling.


    2
    Disconnect the battery cables and remove the oil dipstick, flywheel cover, oil cooler guides, front driveshaft. Unhook the exhaust pipes and remove the front engine mount bolts.


    3
    Put a bucket under the oil pan and remove the drain plug with a socket wrench. Let the oil drain into the bucket, and when it's finished draining, put the drain plug back on. Be sure not to overtighten the drain plug.


    4
    Loosen the oil pan bolts and take off the oil pan. Clean off the old gasket, making sure all traces have been removed. Wipe out the oil pan with a clean rag and clean the mating surface with solvent.


    5
    Apply a bead of liquid gasket to the mating surface and replace the oil pan while the liquid gasket is still wet. Torque the bolts according to specifications in the manual.


    6
    Reattach the engine mounting through nut and bolt, oil cooler guides and dipstick. Reconnect the exhaust pipe to the manifold, replace the flywheel cover and reconnect the battery cables.


    7
    Refill the engine with about 5 qt. of motor oil. Start the engine and then recheck the oil with a dipstick, adding enough oil to bring it to the full level. 2000 Jeep Cherokees require between 5 and 7 qt. of oil, depending on the size of the motor.
