Re: Oil Pan Gasket change
I had this problem earlier last year and it set me back nearly $600 with taxes. They had to move a few pieces under the front end to change the oil pan gasket. I was impressed on how wide it was, but I've never had this problem on any of my other vehicles. Luckily it's been the most major problem with the car. I can't say I'd do this myself since I not only lack some of the proper tools to lift the car, my driveway isn't level what so ever. Mine also leaked on the left side facing the car.
I watched the shop work on my car and it took two guys, two hours and a few minutes to get the job done. 4hours labour plus $100 for the gasket and it adds up fast. I suppose it comes down to if you know you can do it or not. If I have to think about doing a repair I stop and send it into the shop. I like to do as much work on my cars as I can, but theres a line that I draw on some things.
