Default Oil pan crack on MY99'

Hi all,

Was doing an oil change today, and the frikkin weld in bung for the plug bolt cracked on one of the spot welds..!!

I guess flexing that area over time cause the bung to pull slightly and the force of breaking the bolt lose, caused a small (~1/4") crack round the edge of the weld..

So i need to get the pan out and have it welded, but i see that is easier said than done....

CAN i jack/wedge the engine enough to get the rear bolts out????? It doesn't look like it, but while i'm waitin for a/some replies, i'm gonna see what i can do...

Anyone, please, could to shed some light on me....

Thank you,

You should be able to raise the engine enough to gain access to the oil pan bolts once you remove the two motor mount nuts and washers. You're probably going to want a 10mm swivel socket.

Don't forget to drain the oil first.

Good luck.
