How to replace oil pan? 03 Pilot
Can someone tell me how difficult it is to replace my oil pan on my 2003 Pilot? I was just curious to see how much it would cost me to get it done at the dealer so I called... Got a quote for $850 (includes parts, oil change, alignment as they have to drop the sub frame, etc)... Part was around $200... What happened was I changed my oil today and noticed upon removing the drain bolt it was super easy to remove... Didn't think anything of it as there was no leak marks... But when I tried to reinstall the bolt it wouldn't line up... I stuck my finger in the hole and noticed threads were coming off! Damn shop stripped it!!! (went on a road trip out west and reached 112K kms oil change so I just brought it into a SuperLube (wait while they change shop)... So basically I'm screwed cuz they're a 30 hour drive away, plus how can I prove that they screwed up, right??? I'm pissed!!!
Anyways, Searched online and found that I can get the pan for just over $100 USD plus shipping... Looking at a picture of the pan online it looks like there's only 20 or so bolts holding it on, plus some silicone...
Anyways, if someone has a how to guide or a scan of the repair manual, that would be great!!!
PS - Wow, it's been awhile since I've been on here! Didn't know you guys changed the site name! CHEERS!
