I'm trying to remove my oil pan on a 2000 Silverado 1500 with a 4.3L V6. I've removed all of the bolts, the starter, the transmission cooling lines, the oil level sensor bracket, the front wire bracket, the transmission-to-oil pan bolts, the starter bracket bolts (located on the top, passenger-side of the oil pan), etc. I cant seem to either break the gasket seal or perhaps there are other bolts.

We are trying to remove the turbo but the housing appears to be bolted to the exhaust manifold with bolts coming from inside the exhaust manifold. This doesn't make sense. The mechanic told me that there were four studs and I should remove the nuts to free the turbo housing. However I see the tips of four threaded bolts extending about 1/8" out of the flange that attaches to the exhaust manifold. There is no chance that four nuts were ever installed on these "studs".
