The oil that is contained in your engine is helps to lubricate all of the moving parts that your motor has. Making sure that the oil stays at the right levels should be one of the top concerns that a car owner has. There are a variety of factors that can lead to oil leaking out of a car and among the most common is a leaky oil pan. The oil pan is mounted on the bottom of a car and is where the oil is housed until it is needed by the internal parts of the engine. The oil pan of your car has to work constantly in order for your engine to have the right amount of oil to use.

Most of the oil pans on the market are metal, which makes them extremely durable. Ideally, the oil pan on a car is supposed to last as long as the engine does. With all of the dangers that the oil pan faces every time the car is driven, it can be very hard to keep it repair free. Having a damaged oil pan can cause a number of different problems, which is why it will have to be repair or replaced quickly.

The complexity that is involved in replacing an oil pan is the main reason why you will need to get a professional to do the work for you. Attempting this type of repair can result in the new oil pan being damaged due to your lack of experience. The oil pan bolts will also have to be tightened just right in order for the pan to hold up like it is supposed to.

The following are a few of the things that you will experience if the oil pan on your car is damaged:

  • There is oil leaking from the pan
  • There are streaks of oil behind where you have just driven
  • The oil drain plug is stripped

Having all of the oil in the oil pan leak out can be disastrous for an engine. Hiring auto repair professionals to handle the repairs to your oil pan will allow you to get the right results without having to lift a finger.

Acura TL - Oil Pan - Palo Alto, California
John explained the service in detail and kept me in the loop as the service progressed. Very informative and helpful as well!
Honda Civic - Oil Pan Replacement - Richmond, California
John was very likeable and friendly. Unlike most mechanics I have dealt with in the past, John let me know exactly what he working on at that moment, building trust that you just don’t see in today’s auto services. He worked super fast. Finally, as a person who is super busy in my own right, it was great to see how punctual John was. He was on time for my 7am appointment, trudging across the Bay Bridge early. Anyone who lives in the Bay Area knows that you have to time your travel across the Bay Bridge just right in order to get to the East Bay without being late. A+++ work and service.
