Re: oil leak question...........
I replaced the pan on my old '99 Taurus about 5 years ago. Shops wanted ~$500 to replace it as there is 3-4hrs of labour involved. The gasket ran me some bucks and I did the work myself. Took me 3hrs, only because I let the gasket cure for 1.5hrs before adding new engine oil.
