Help, in need of zetec oil pan in Houston area

My oil pan has minor crack near the drain :( jb welded and hoping I could limp it to home but nope parked nearby friend's house in Pasadena. I am hoping if one of you guys have oil pan laying around so I could replace it by tmw morning.
What happened is that my heavy friend didn't tell me that his other friend is heavy too -_- totaling almost 600 pounds and went thru bad part of road.

Nope, I don't think any of us have an extra oil pan laying around, cause if we did I would have gotten it by now lol. I need a new oil pan myself.

I also moved your thread to the Texas section so people who are in Houston can see your thread.

If it was me and depending on how bad it's leaking I'd buy a lot of oil and try to make it home stopping every so many miles to add more oil.

Lol I thought of that, I already wasted a fresh oil.
I am just really exhausted tonight, crashing at my friends house and will see what happens tomorrow. I guess I will have to tape it up more with duct ha.

The oilpan is available from the Ford dealer for less than $100. Also from Rockauto for about $65.

What ever works to limp it home I say. Just make sure you don't do something that make it worse.

Though the RockAuto price is the better price, I believe he is looking for a good option available now and not waiting for shipping.

Seems to be his only means of transportation.

I would check with the autoparts store get a pan and some gasket maker. A couple of beers, some socket wrenches, clean, gasket maker, put back in place and voila, back in business. ... oh and some new oil.

Made home safely with dripping jb welded and plastered with duct tape :p here is the carnage pictures :)







Skid plates is definitely next thing on my list!
Autozone sells new pan for $60, it needs to be special ordered so I might pop up tomorrow. It is not my only means of transportation, I am able to use wj jeep anytime.
