Hello. Thank you for writing in. Replacing the oil pan can be tricky and time consuming. Often the engine or the transmission need to be moved or adjusted in order to access and work on the oil pan. Sometimes the vehicle’s frame needs to be partially disassembled. Rust damage does warrant a replacement, and further inspection into the extent of the rust damage. Replacing the oil pan can take a variety of specialty tools for pulling the engine or transmission. For help with replacing your oil pan, we can dispatch a technician to your home or office.
