Question about 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis
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.
