I'm thinking you will be all set, considering how much oil is in the pan at any given time. I honestly don't know whereabouts the pickup is either, but I think you're ok.

Hi there,

Subies dont use oil pan gaskets.. they use 3-bond sealer.. and it sticks like glue!!

The dent will be ok.... the oil pick up isnt near the front of the pan...you'll be fine

Only change it if you have a hole.. or it is completely fooked.
