James,

Pulling the pan on an M30 is a bear. Ask George Mann as he recently did it and can probably give you very detailed instructions.

Basically, you have to either raise the engine or drop the suspension cross member a couple of inches. Remove the pan and rotate the crank as you go to extract the pan. Not exactly a fun job. But hey, now's your opportunity to replace that leaky sump gasket :-)

It sure sounds to me like you have an oil pump problem, not a canister one.

Regards,
Adnan
