    My oil pan gasket has been seeping and now it's getting worse. I wanted to replace it myself but my Hanes manual, AllData, and the dealer said lifting the engine up a little bit is required to do the job. I can't do that since I lack the proper tools to do so.
    New gasket is around $60 and the dealer wanted some good money.

    Has anyone replaced there's or taken your truck in? How was the cost?

    Cheapest I found was around $300 to do it. And I hate taking it in.

    Yep the motor has to be lifted up some and even then its a tight fit.
