New oil pan?

So apparently I need a new oil pan and it's Gna be 700$!! 200 for the pan 500 for labor. Sound right? Or is he ripping me a new one? I never thought a oil pan would have been that much to replace. He showed me the threads, they was completely stripped out an like was off the pan..

You can do this pan yourself, a few seals, bolts, and a few other things, I have a small leak from mine and my dad looked at it the other day and he said he could replace it pretty quick, that or just fix the seal.
His labor seems outrageous tho.

He said it would take 5 hours and there's like 12-15 bolts and a cramped spot to work with. How would you fix the plug bolt tho?

I thought it seemed ridiculous too. Me and my mom was thinking 150 bucks. 700 is half a transmission rebuild!

Good to know about the range of a tranny rebuild, gonna need my beefed up in about 2 years.

Does this guy not own a stand or even jack stands? My dad looked at it last week and I think he counted close to 10 bolts to remove to drop it.
And he's a big guy and he was under my stang on jack stands with enough room to work if needed.

Re: New oil pan?

1) Can you re-thread the oil pan?
2) you can get a junk yard oil pan for anywhere from 10-75$
3) your quote is not a henry ford quote.
4) you almost have to pull the motor or the K member the chain the pan.

It was lifted up. I looked at it. I think it would be a ***** but not 500$ worth of a ***** lmao. I saw the bolts It was kinds straight forward lookin but I'm no mechanic. I got 140k almost so tranny needs to rebuilt soon.

Well where do I begin.

To replace the oil pan you have to do one of the following.

-unbolt motor mounts and raise the motor up high enough to remove the pan
- drop the k member and then remove the pan

The pan it's self is cheap, I just paid $10 for a used one for my sixxer.

Labour is going to be the expensive part $500 doesn't seem that bad at all to me for swapping the pan.

Also If you drop the k your going to need an alignment after aswell.

IIRC mitchell quotes the job at 8 hours, the shop I work at charges $105 an hour for labour.

Have you looked into just putting new threads in the pan with a heli coil or something simmilar. ?

Nothing like a rubber sleeve.

You tap the pan as it is an then insert new threads into that tap.

Google heli coil
