I have a leak in the oil pan and because of rust and I don't want to spend $400 at a garage to get it fixed. I want to do it myself. Who knows how to do this? Who has a diagram of the car parts?
Thanks for the help!

    From an expert with over 30 years, My Best advise to give and being honest: If you have to ask how to replace a oil pan and/or gasket on your vehicle, do yourself a real favor and take it in to have it done.
