evilBay to the rescue. Looks like a used part that may fit. have you tried a salvage yard? They may be reluctant to part out a whole engine and don’t usually salvage things like oil pans. But it could be worth a shot.

Thanks for the advice. the oil pan there is for the V-6 model but thanks anyway. I tryed the 2 u-pull-it parts yards around my house and i had no luck. Come to find out they dont make the pan after market. i searched online for a few hours and finally found one. Not as cheap as i liked but it wasent 200 bucks either.

Just trying to help. I was in the car business for years myself and generally know how salvage yards work and have searched for many parts over the years.

Parts for your car are not as plentiful and not nearly as cheap as they would be for Hondas and Toyotas for example. Oil pans are not something that can be re-popped and get back the investment on the tooling very quickly either. The best source new is from the dealers as they only carry the real deal oil pans.

In salvage yards, if they keep an engine, it is for resale or goes to a rebuilder. Or they get scrapped for weight. You might get lucky searching around scrap yards, but most are reluctant to sell parts.
