Today I learned my 2003 Volvo S 40, purchased used early last year, has a damaged oil pan that some clown repaired with liberal amounts of JB Weld! The damaged and rounded off oil drain plug is now non-removable--no oil changer in town will touch it. Is removing and replacing the oil pan a D.I.Y. job or should I just throw in the towel and take it into a shop? What is involved in the job? I have moderate to semi-advanced mechanical skills but do not want to get into a major tear down in my driveway. Thanks for any useful advice.

Had the belt, fuel pump, rebuilt engine replaced. There was fluid at the bottom of the right front wheel well. The mechanic says the leaked onto the timing belt and it needs to be replaced. I was told that can't be the case because the belt is encased.
My fuel pump in my 2004 Volvo S40 was replaced. Now I am getting less than 15 miles per gallon.

Trying to find a replacement part
About once a month, I will go out and try to start my car and the only thing that happens is all the idiot lights come on, radio works, heat, etc. There is no clicking sounds at all. If I wait an hour or so, the car will usually start. Any suggestions on what could be causing this? Is my starting going bad?? Battery issues?? Thanks for any help. Debbie
