Hello pharv,


When you say oil pan filter do you mean an oil filter and oil change?

No I just had this done and the guy at the place said I am leaking oil at a pretty good pace and it is from the oil pan. He stated it might be an oil pan gasket.

Ok for the oil pan gasket you will be looking at approx 3h of labor and during the removal procdure the cradle will have to be lowered to remove the oil pan. This means after the repair you will need an alighnement. The oil pan gasket will cost about $50.00. The average shop rate is approx $100.00 depending on the shop. I would say approx $460.00 at an average shop.
