Ebay has several junkyards that deal in newer wrecked cars and sell for 1/2 of new price. Do a search for your vehicle, if nothing is listed, contact the seller. Watch their ratings! Most are very good but some take forever to ship out.

How to remove the oil pan for access to the oil pump on a 2003 silverado 5.3 l engine, 4WD

Place a jack with a block of wood on it under the oil pan, and loosen the engine mounts, on either side of the motor. Once those are loose, jack the engine up a few inches (10 or so, if you can), and get out from under the truck.

Lay blankets on either fender, and lay a 2x4 or 4x4 across the engine bay. Wrap a chain or strap around it several times, and connect it to any 2 points on the engine on opposite sides, to support the engine so you can remove the jack.

Drain the oil from the vehicle, using the oil pan's drain bolt. Remove the bolts all the way around the pan, and tap the sides of it with a rubber mallet or piece of wood to release the gasket seal. It will fall.

Installation is the reverse with a new gasket. Be sure to put gasket sealer in any sharp corners and clean the pan thoroughly while it's out.

You should also take this time to check for damage or wear on the bottom end of the engine, including metal shavings or sparkles/flecks in the oil pan.

I have a 1993 mercedes 190e 2.6 and after getting my oil changed the small leak I had is now draining my engine. I have lost 1.5 quarts of oil in 6 weeks. What do I do now. I was told to get a new oil pan...

Unless the oil pan is badly damaged then I would not replace it. Tell your technician that you would like the gasket replaced and a new oil plug installed. See if this doesn't change the price to something a bit more reasonable. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Oil pan removal on a 97 jeep wrangler

Instructions can be found in any basic manual but the simple version is to remove anything obvious that will be in your way (starter, trans lines etc). Disconnect both engine mounts and raise engine to get better clearance (watch stuff on top so you don't break anything) I usually stuff a couple of 2x4 wood blocks between engine & mounts to support it. Remove all pan bolts and take it down (remember pump pickup will interfere) Do what you need to do, then reverse process.

Oil leaking from the bottom of the engine

Replace oil pan gasket with new and improved gasket from GM. You also can get the higher priced felpro gasket to stop this leak. They have lower priced ones but these may leak. Also check front crank seal.
