Q: Q: leak in oil pan

asked by on

I have a rust spot on the bottom of my oil pan that is leaking. I took it to a few different places and was quoted anywhere from $700-1200. This seems pretty steep. It doesn't seem like it would be that difficult to change.

My car has 183000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

This is a fairly simple repair in terms of labor. The oil must be drained and then the pan comes of with a number of bolts and is very straightforward. The largest expense with this repair will likely be the cost of the oil pan. A certified YourMechanic technician can come to your location to help you with the oil pan replacement on your vehicle.
