Where's the Best Price on Oil Pan Repl?

Hello all, Anyone Know of a reputable shop somewhere in Macomb Twp, MI. to get an oil pan replaced on my 94 5.0 302 f 150? I know it is an involved job, and it is something that I simply do not have the time for. I figured that I would start looking for somewhere before I absolutely need to replace it, and so I know how much to save up. Thank You in advance if you are able to help.

William, they will do the work as well as sell it?

Mario's Auto care, Utica Road and Grosebeck..Very good people, no sure it will get you a discount, but mention my name just the same.

I don't know your area,so I can't tell you a good place,but,I can tell you that I have just replaced one on an '89 Bronco full size with a 302 in it,which makes 3 302's and 3 300six's,that I have done.It is involved,engine has to be raised and the plennum will have to come off to get it high enough.The big thing is that you get a good quality pan and gasket and put a new oil pump in (Melling HV is my choice).You don't want to be in there again.Fords' small block oil pump is minimal and the new Melling will exstend the life of your bottom end,I've been through this.The aftermarket pans are good,the ones I got through my local auto parts store were made in Canada.The gaskets I used were the Felpro one piece,put in with NO sealer,it causes them to squeeze out.Who ever does this work for you,have a talk with them and express your concerns,make sure they know that you know what the job is,and the only reason they are doing it,is because you don't have the time.That way,they are a little less likely to take short cuts.And get your old oil pump back,so you know it's in there.And no,I don't want to do yours,I hate that job,I'm just trying to let you know the scoop on these.Good luck!

Yea. always use 1 piece gaskets on oil pans.

You can do it without picking up motor. somebody in the forum did it. but it is VERY VERY hard.
he said it took him over an hour to put some of the parts back in the motor. cause you pop the pan down and pop everything out by hand, then you pull the pan out, throw the parts in the new pan and try and put them back in.
said it took him over 5 hours to do it.

I highly do not suggest doing this.

Unbolt the mounts and make sure any short wires or hoses are disconected, then use a puller to lift the motor up.

Thanks for all of the help and info so far. I'm tryin to get this taken care of before the rust blisters become holes.

I had considered doing the pump also when it was apart, I have heard of the need to prime an oil pump on rebuilt motors,
___But Does It Need To Be Primed When You Are Just Replacing One???

Yes.All they have to do is is set the pump without the pick up on it in oil and turn it until oil come out the passage to the engine,not a big deal.I have always run the starter a couple times prior to start up,just to make sure it was getting oil before it ran.You would want to do this even if you didn't change the pump.I wouldn't even think of doing this with out changing the pump,especially on a sb Ford.I have a '96 F150 300IL and I had to change the pan a year ago,the only reason I just changed the '89 Bronco,was because it set 3 yrs,because of a leaking oil pan.It was leaking down to about a 3qt level over a week,when I parked it.With this era of Fords,it's not if it will leak,it's when.I've been told that they used crappy recycled steel in the pans,but I was also told by an auto parts guy that Fords weren't the only ones with the problem.Well it could be worse,you could own a Toyota Tundra that you can't put on a hoist because the frame is rusted too bad!

Very nice offer Chris. And Welcome to FTE.

Do you have much experience with removing and repairing the stock Garrett turbo on the 7.3 PSD ?

That's good to hear, I would like to remove my turbo and replace the pedestal O-rings, replace WW and just do some preventative maintenance on it.

Maybe this spring I can hire you to do some work on the turbo.
