Re: Replacing Oil Pan

Maybe a second opinion on the pan condition before you proceed? If you are really suffering from a highly corroded pan, it makes me wonder what the rest of the motor is like. That wouldn't feel too safe.

If it's just some isolated surface corrosion, a patch should be fine until you are in a position to pull her out. If I were to guess, pulling her is in your future.
