So Iv'e had the 05 3.8 LS Imp 'bout 5 months, noticing that the oil pan is rusting in many areas. No leaks (yet). Is this common? I have not got under it yet see whats involved, how bad is it to change it? Thanks.

I just have to ask...
I have never seen an oil pan rust from the inside out on a vehicle that always has oil inside the pan and driven regularly.
I have seen several that have been scraped on the ground so hard it ground the metal way. Have seen them rust from on the outside because the engine never leaked and there was no paint on the out side.
But in 45 years of screwing with cars, I have never seen a driver that rusted from the inside out.
