see this is why i do my own work, saves me $$$ and you learn something new every time. $350 for an install that might take them 2+ hours to do it? fack that!

Sold to me if it fits lol


I agree with Chuck fak that. With us working on our cars we saved ourselves 1000's of dollars over the years. Parts are cheap it's the labor that's not. The only problem with working on your own car is, if it doesn't fix it it's not like you can take it back and tell them fix it right. You have to do it your self.

I'm thinking of making a How-to on the upper oil pan gasket if I have to replace that thing again? I got off of work tonight and I am about to jack the car up and crawl under it again. I pray it's just the oil pan and not the upper. I can deal with the oil pan, but if I have to replace the "new" upper oil pan gasket then I'm going cry



On a bright note I know this zetec like the back of my hand
