Well, the good news is... the gasket lists for $17 bux. The bad news is.... it calls for 10.2 hours to change it, which includes r&r the transmission. I see no code description for 1806.

Cracked drip pan on a 1996 3.8 Rivera Buick.


Hi! My name is Tom and I can help you.

By drip pan I am going to assume you mean oil pan. First you need to get your car on blocks or up in the air enough to reach the oil pan.

Remove the drain plug and drain the oil.(discard the oil). You will see a number of bolts securing the pan. Using the proper box wrench remove all the bolts.

You will see a gasket. This must be replaced. You can purchase the proper pan gasket by asking for a pan gasket at an auto parts store. While you are there ask for the proper sealant for the gasket.

Clean the pan and any oil on the surface where the gasket will touch. Place gasket sealer around the pan and seal the gasket to the pan cover. Replace the pan. Put the bolts back and fill with oil. Start the car and get it to operational temperature and check for leaks. You are now Good to go.

This is a fairly involved yet simple fix.

I hit a big rock under my car and now it is leaking fluid up front how much would it cost me to fix the hole that the rock has caused


If the oil pan has the hole in it a new oil pan with gasket will cost you around $120. http://www.racepages.com/products/?Ntt=Ford+Taurus+Oil+Pan&N=4294963856 However you can probably just remove the old pan and have it repaired. Any welding shop can repair a hole in your pan and may be able to repair it on the engine without removing it if the hole is tiny. You will still need to buy a new gasket if you have to remove the pan, so if you can get it repaired for less than $90 you will be money ahead. You may also be able to find a used oil pan at your local auto salvage yard.

I am looking to buy a 96 ford f250 powerstroke 7.3L. It needs a new oil pan gasket and or a rear main seal. I just want to make sure im not getting screwed on this deal. how much would it cost to repair...


The pan gasket is cheap. Remove the pan install new gasket. A shop would charge around $100. Now the main seal, it will run you $800+ to fix. Difficult and time consuming.

Leaking oil, oil pan has a crack


The cost of this will vary from place to place, but if your doing it yourself then thats going to save you a bit of cost.
From what I've seen an average cost of a second hand oil sump(Pan) was $ 130 - $ 200 USD. This should only take and 1 - 1.5 hours to do.
The cost to have a workshop replace it will depend on hourly rate of the workshop. There are also other cost of replacing the oil and a gasket for the oil pan. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

Leaking gasket of tining belt


do you have a 3.1L V6? The timing cover gasket seals the timing components, it is located behind the belt drive system (alt, a/c, p/s etc.) all of these components must be removed to change this gasket, also the oil pan lower seal gets changed at the same time. The oil pan gasket includes the rear pan seal and the side seals and on for the rear of the pan, the engine must be lifted out of it mounts to change this gasket. It takes time to do these repairs and each shop has an hourly rate per hour on labor. The cost of the parts will be relatively the same at any shop, labor will differ. I hope this helps to answer your questions.

Oil loss and code 1806 on my 2001 cadillac el dorado


i believe what you mean is a P1860 code? There is no P1806. The code is for a torque converter clutch pulse width solenoid, which is an internal electrical part of the transmission, it is a pretty labor intensive job, and you could actually end up needing a full transmission. that and the oil pan gasket could lead to a heafty bill, if its worth it to fix is up to your and your financial situation really, ask yourself if you can buy a different car with the money that you are quoted for the work.
