Your best chance would be to call some local junkyards or try getting onto a junkyard hotline to post your need. Ebay is a possibility also.

Check your local auto salvge yard. if they don't have one, they're all hooked up to networks with other yards, and can find you one somewhere. also try the internet, or, of course there's the dealer, if your rich! good luck.

I have a dent in my oil pan, which seems to be causing a leak. Do i need to replace or is there a way to repair without replacing?


Most likely you just need to replace the Oil pan seal. A dent normally doesn't cause a leak. If the pan is cracked then yea, you will have to replace the pan. If it is leaking around the seal area it may have been knocked loose when you hit what ever dented your pan to begin with.

Dented oil pan on 1980 AMC Concorde, how is best way to repair?


oil pan will need to be removed.a small dent could be hammered out from inside,if its cracked,welding is a possibility,but care must be given to maintain correct alignment at gasket surface to avoid leaks.
a replacement pan might be available after-market,or from an auto recycler [junkyard] .specifics of engine displacement & application will be required to order matching part.

WE BOUGHT A 96 MAXIMA WITH 182 K (FOR GRANDDAUGHTER) IT HAS NEVER HAD TRANSMISSION SERVICED....IS IT SAFE TO HAVE OLD TRANSMISSION FLUID DRAINED, & NEW FLUID & SCREEN INSTALLED ... WE HAVE BEEN...


Yes but only by dropping the transmission pan and screen. Newer technologies actually suction the fluid out through the filler tube which most definitely will damage the transmission. I'd also avoid the transmission "flush" that is also widely used. Dropping the pan and changing the filter is the only safe way especially since any debris would not be recirculated through the system.
