93 mercury grand marquis oil pan leak

Can a leaky rusty oil pan be replaced or repaired easily? my mechanic said the engine would have to be pulled which could cause more problems. and would cost a couple of thousand..car has 129,000 miles,runs great otherwise..he epoxied the pan but after only a few days the pan seemed to leak worse..2 drops/second..is there any kind of superglue or liquid rubber that can be brushed or sprayed on to seal the pan? hate to junk her..probably could go anothr 50,000 miles if not for pan problem live near the water and mechanic said alot of rust underneath

thanks in advance george

Sometimes you can remove the engine mounts and jack the engine up high enough to remove the pan. If it is really rusty it is hard to get any type of epoxy or metal repair to stick.

The v8 engine in my 1992 mercury grand marquis has a leak somewhere by oil filter area and I'm trying to find the name of a gasket that needs to be replaced in order to fix that leak.


might be the oil filter adapter (the stud that the filter threads onto). I would try replacing filter first twist on till tight then use filter wrench to tighten 1/4 to 1/2 turn more

Replaced Oil Filter Adapter Gasket 1995 Mercury Grand Marquis to fix slight Oil Leak. Got red oil warning light. Replaced Oil Pressure sending unit but still have red light. Suggestions?


We performed exactly the same repair on December 28, 2010 withexactly the same outcome. Finding no other references to this oil pressureproblem anywhere on the internet and the fact that they both happened the samemonth, I can only wonder if there are some incorrectly made gaskets hitting theshelves.

Oilpan replacement


I will try to save you money. If the pan is leaking around the gasket you many be able to tighten it enough to reseal it. There are some products that can seal spot leaks like "Seal-All". It is like a model airplane glue that resists gas and oil.

For rusted pans you can use "JB Weld" This hardens and strengthens what you put it on. You mix it like bondo and it dries quickly. Your pan does not have much pressure in it except from blowby from the pistons.

Unfortunately I have not had to replace a pan on this series of car. Sometimes you need to lift an engine off its mounts and turn the crank to clear the lobes, the oil sump may clear. A quick look at a Chiltons will confirm this repair. Wanted to give you alternatives to pulling the pan so I answered your repair problem. Good Luck on this.

How much to change a oil pan gasket for 2001 grand prix 3.8 gt


If you want to repair the oil pan I would also check lower engine mount for leaking oil and cracks in anti sway bar near fitting's. This due to engine mount is oil filled. OEM sway bar is made of tubular steel and they crack easy. Replacement sway bar is solid steel. Here's the kicker. When they pull the lower frame to service oil pan. The engine mount and sway bar are attached to that frame. A honest mechanic should only charge for parts ($35 for mount and $100 for sway bar) and maybe a extra hour. My mechanic did all in 5 hours. FYI gasket is only $35 bucks. Good luck
