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. Cool

If it just appears to be surface rust I'd just Rustoleum the crap out of it and call it good. It is changeable in the car but it's a pain in the ass even it you do it the right way.

Take a little bit of the oil runoff from when you do an oil change and rub it on the oil pan.

Sorry to say, it's probably rusting from the inside out. Only way to find out is to get under and have a good look.

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.

The accumulation of water in a car's oiling system varies based on how the car is driven.

Water is lighter than automotive oils, so certainly water will settle to the bottom and potentially have an opportunity to rust.
