Hi, my name is Heather and I have a problem with my Honda. I went to go get a routine oil change at a local Tuffy Auto, and they came to me and told me I needed a brand new oil pan because my drain plug was stripped. Since then I have not drove my car anywhere, and slowly but surely, I see the oil leaking out of my car. : Cry:
So, I called up another local Tuffy and ask them an estimate of how much it would cost. I told them to check the juckyards before considering a new pan. With my luck no juckyards had my pan and the guy told me my told would over $800, with labor. Also, I asked him how much is the pan itself. He told me $400 and change. I found one for $164.19. : Shock:
Q: Is this a resonable about for an oil pan replacement?
Q: How can I replace this oil pan myself, if I order the pan?
I hope this can be solved without burning a hole in my pocket. ?
