I have someone who wants me to replace their oil pan. It is a 1997 town car with the V8 4.6.
The other mechanic told them that the pan is rotting through and it’s not just a weeping gasket.
I have not had the chance to get this car to my shop, so I have not gotten a look at it.
I’d just like to know what I will get involved with before I see the owners and the car.
Do any of you know how extensive this will be to get the engine up high enough to pull the old pan out.
I’m hoping that I can just unbolt the motor mounts and jack the motor up a bit if need be.
Any input is welcome.
