RUSTED OUT OIL PAN 99 PSD 7.3 VAN
Hey New Friends,
I bought this van a few months ago and was told to beware of rust on the pan ( after I already bought it) I gently snadblasted the pan using a pressurized sand blaster at under 60 psi and was ready to prime and paint with rustoleum and lo and behold oil started dripping from a spot on the bottom. I plugged it with a self tapping screw and teflon tape to prevent loosing all the oil and now realize the pan must me piited all over.. Now for the Q - does the engine need to be pulled or can it be raised.. to install a new pan?
Thank you for your help.. Also some say that the dealers drill out the crossmember Is this true..
