Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. If the oil pan/sump just has a little rust on the bottom, then you maybe able to sand it of and seal it so that the rust doesn't spread. Although, you will be better off replacing the pan. Over time this may cause a leak and cause bigger issue. The labor hours for replacing the pan is 1.7 hours. The pan cost around $100. The labor price is determined by the hourly rate of the shop. If I were to guess, total cost will be around $300.
