Question about 1997 Cadillac Seville
What is the best way to repair a hole in the oil pan? JB Weld didn't hold. A new one from the dealer is rather expensive and I can't find a supplier that has one. Also, what other years and models have the same pan so I can call the junk yards to try to find a used one?
The problem with welding on the car is that you will NEVER get it clean enough and weld will not hold. Remove pan and clean it, THEN weld it. I usually screw it down to a piece of 3/4" plywood so that it does not warp while welding...also use a wet rag to cool area near weld as you work (at least 3-4 inches from work area)
