Question about 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis
Yes the engine has to be raised to be removed. i have had this same problem on a customers car. he didnt want to go to the expense of replacing the pan . so we tried JB weld on the pan and that was over 2 yeas ago and its still holding. the trick to JB weld is CLEAN. remove all the oil from the pan and clean with brake cleaner inside and out and grind the area clean to remove the rust . you might burn threw the pan but that is ok. just remember very clean . and wait 24 hours before you put oil in the engine.
but your right the correct fix is to replace the pan. but is the car worth the expence?
