Q: Replace oil pan gasket or oil pan? on 2003 Mazda Tribute

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Dealership said my car was leaking oil. Had them diagnose, and found leak is from the oil pan gasket. They insist they have to change the entire oil pan ($600+) instead of just replacing the gasket. This doesn't sound right to me. Are they just trying to rip me off?

You can get a independent shop to give you a estimate as unless the oil pan is cracked it should just be a gasket that needs replacement, You can find a shop near you here www.repairpal.com/directory Sometimes the valve cover gaskets leak and drain down and looks like the pan is leaking, So get another opinion.
