Rusty Oil pan

Do any of you have a rusty oil pan? Just changed oil in the truck today, and it is pretty rusty on the lower front side. I guess I'll try some of that rust converter stuff and paint it.

It doesn't look like you could change the oil pan with the engine in place. Has anyone had to change their oil pan before?

Yep mines leaking a little due to rust and yes you need to pull the engine to replace it typical for 7.3

Ridiculous. Buddy's truck had the pan rust out @ 2 years old.

2 years. Rusted completely through.

I looked and I looked, but I could NOT find the toyota badge on my F550. It MUST be there somewhere, because my pan is rusted to death too.
Hey, what's a $1,600 repair bill, right? It's not like I could use that money to make a few payments, or use it as down on a NEW Ford, right?
And heck, I don't need my truck for the week it will be down geting fixed!


Word to the wise: If your pan is tender, when you replace it....replace the engine oil cooler on the side of the block under the exhaust manifold drivers side. Mine is NEW, can you guess why?

Nope, I'd have to go back under the truck and do some guessing...I will tell you that on my 1985 Toyota truck I was able to pull the pan w. motor in frame, pull pistons, etc. Everything pretty high quality. The Ford seems ok so far, but a rusty oil pan...it was intended to be driven OUTSIDE, right???

Yup gotta pull the engine. MY oil pan is leaking a little around the seal and the lowest price I could find to pull and replace it was $1500

Buy a pan on line from the wholesale ford diesel parts place in Indianapolis, a search of Google will get you there...they are the cheapest I have seen for these items...
Then go to NAPA and ask them for the stuff you need to armor it, it's like $36 or so, forget the name. It basically does to the pan what rock guard does to the rocker panel..
Or, hi temp rust inhibiting paint after a bead blasting...point is, you want it to LAST!
Go find an international dealer and get a price. My experience is they can do it cheaper and faster than a ford dealer.

Fiberglass also works, to bad the motor needs to be pulled to replace the pan.

My son (SteveKran) has just turned me on to something called POR15. He used it on a perenially rusty rain gutter on a vehicle that needed a paint job. It seemed to hold paint well and didn't rust again. There is even a high temp version. When I get a chance to do the work I'll post it and some pics. Hopefully there;s enough material left to keep the oil in for a while.
