Question about 2001 Mercury Sable
Mechanic said $270 to replace pan that drips oil on exhaust pipe
Sounds like he is just going to reseal the pan it is very labor intensive and the price id about right as the exhaust has to be dropped down to access the pan and bolts plus the clean up of the mating services if you get it done demand he install the FELPO OS30717R they fixed the problem with the oem gaskets it cost a little more but well worth the money and no future headaches

SOURCE: 95 Mercury Sable oil headache
1999Mercury Sable died...acts like battery dead or alternator, however with key off there is a click, click sound and as soon as you giggle ignition and make sound stop ...there is power but as soon as you turn key on it all goes dead again.. battery takes a charge and don't think its an alternator problem.. think it is a relay switch...possibly the windshield wipers.. have noticed that the wipers turned on for no reason a couple of times and once again when I was messing with this situation

You shouldn't have to. Its in the middle of the front of the car. Should have 8 bolts or so holding it on. When you replace that remember a new gasket and to clean the old one off the motor.

put the car on ramps and remove all of the bolts clean the old gasket off and put a little gasket seal on the bottom of the gasket to hold it in place and put back together and make sure you put the right kind of transmission fluid back in it give these websites a try www.alldatadiy.com and www.autozone.com if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your car wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.

yes. it makes slipping the oil pan easier to get around the oil pump.You will also want to purchase new gaskets for the exhaust just to prevent any headaches that may arise from this project.
