You use a block of wood to span the oil pan so the weight is distributed on the sides. That's given in every manual. I prefer plywood myself, but if your jack's saddle is big enough then you can use a 2x4. You should do the same thing for the transmission- it is not wise to jack up on cast aluminum without having wood in there to absorb the hardness of the saddle.
