Not difficult. If i'm not mistaken you can change that one without having to loosten the motor mounts up and raise the engine.In the event there is not quite enough room-you would just have to raise the engine slightly by loosening the mounts.Drain oil-remove pan bolts and pan. Clean old gasket off. Replace pan, re-torque pan polts. Be sure to go ahead and replace the engine oil pump while it is accessible - cheap insurance for small cost.
Try the many on-line auto parts sources; such as - www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.partsgeek.com or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) list the oil pan gasket for around $6.50 and the oil pump for around $26.00 for your vehicle.
