Rusting oil pan

I have a 2001 F-250 7.3L that has a problem with the oil pan rusting. I've painted it a couple times and it seems to rust again in a relatively short time. Does anyone know of a coating that will stay on the oil pan? Rustolium doesn't get the job done.

Is oil seeping through?

No... that's what I'm trying to avoid. I understand you have to jack up the engine in order to change an oil pan.

Yup that sucks I'm lucky to not have that problem (crossing my fingers!) but what about a bed liner or something like it like rhino liner I know its a crazy thought but it just might work.

I'm don't know where you could buy only enough to do an oil pan. Maybe I'll just have to keep repainting it - - - that gets to be a pain but I don't know what else to do. I don't want to let it go until I have to replace the pan.

There is something called flex seal I got some for my house to fix a leaking sink it works great I bet it would work on the pan its just a rubber spray seal when it is dry its solid rubber. Just a thought.

I'll see if I can find some "flex seal" - - it's worth a try, Thanks.

Anything that is rubberized (flex seal, undercoating etc) will promote rust over time. Moisture will get trapped behind it , then it will rust through to the point that only the undercoating etc will keep the oil from leaking out. Por 15 is the only thing I believe will take care of the problem. But prep is the key to making it last.

Por 15. I did it to mine two years ago. Prep the hell out of it. I did my whole frame and under carriage with it. It's pricey but it's good stuff. Make sure you don't get it on ur skin because u will need a wire brush to get it off
