    Its relatively rare for the actual oil pan to need replacement. Typically the oil pan gasket is what tends to leak. Just in case though the list price on an oil pan is $406.20 although we could get a used one for something closer to $200 (for just the part). Unfortunately the labor is also expensive as the job take 5 hours to do. If it just needs the gasket the part is $44.50 but still 5 hours of labor.
