Help

Hey guys ive been searching for a new truck since im selling mine on saturday, i looked on craigslist and found a 2000 f-350 with 106,000 miles. I called the guy asked the normal questions. Then i asked if there was any problems or leaks he said no leaks, but last year he said the oil pan in one area had pin needle size holes forming. So to prevent this he drained the oil for a week, then sanded in down to bare metal, after that for a week he continuously applied JB weld and then sanded , after that he then painted it with rustoleum paint. He said it hasnt leaked since. Is this an issue do you think the JB weld is strong enough? What i should do its a beautiful truck.


Sorry for the long post

JB Weld is great. Some people fiberglass the pan, and some use a bed liner product to prevent problems with rust on pans.

I don't know... but I know you are supposed to pull the motor and install a new oil pan. Once they start to rust it is hard to keep it from stopping. If you are mechanical then pulling the motor in the future may not be a big deal. But who knows when that could be... might never be a problem again. That would just be one of those things that would bother me on those long trips... never knowing if it is just going to start leaking..
