I've noticed on my 86 300sdl that the previous owner hit the oil pan and patched it up with epoxy. Not only does it look bad, although I don't look under the car, but I'm worried about a potential leak, especially on the freeway going 80+. Is there any secret to replacing the pan, and gaskets? I would drain the oil, then remove the pan and old gaskets and reverse the procedure for installation. Am I missing anything. Thanks for the help and always GREAT feedback.

wait for a tech to verify

but I would think that you would have to lift the engine up slightly to get clearance for removal/replacement.

oil pan

Hi Jim,

Yes, there is no operating clearance, I was planning on driving the car up on ramps, before I changed the oil. 16 to 18 inches should be plenty. It seems like a simple procedure to me, and that is what worries me
