Default Stupid effing oil pans

I love to do an oil change. After wiping the pan down to clean up all the drop of oil on it. Then find out the oil just keep coming out the side of the pan. Grrrrr. Bring on the break clean, wire brush and JB weld. Oh and cross fingers.

I worked with a surveyor that had (2) oil pans rust through in the course of 1 year, the first one I understood, it was 15 years old at the time, then he bought a factory replacement, and it didn't even last a year, rotted and actual hole in the side, he took it back and they said to buy an aftermarket one....stupid Ford guys....he ended up welding a patch on the original.

I pulled the oil pan off of my wrecked volvo the other day.

Cast aluminum and about 28 bolts holding it on.

pulled the engine on an 05 F250 diesel and resealed several points, oil pan being one of them...couple days later, oil pan leaking again, could see it running from the back corner of the pan, down the hump around the crank, and dripping off roght there...removed the pan, cleaned off the sealant, and resealed it, without pulling the engine...still leaked...then I found out about a small o-ring on the injection pump that would leak oil, run down the lifter valley, and drip off between the trans and engine, making it look like the oil pan...checked that, and about 15 minutes later had the leak fixed...that sucked...

I've lived that dream before. Turned out to be an oil line going from the injection hydraulic pump to the cylinder head (Powersmoker). I thought it was a bad main seal because it was leaking into the bellhousing of the trans instead of on top of it.

2000ish S10 Blazer 4x4's are stupid. We had to pull the pan to check the oil pump on my friend Justins.

The book calls for pulling motor mount bolts, and the front differential bolts to push it out of the way as much as possble.





I will never own a new car.
