My problem is a badly cracked oil pan. Running from our last hurricane here in Florida, I ran over a median divider and got stuck on it with no wheels on the ground. Had to rock it to get front wheels on the ground to get the car off of it. This was 250 miles away from home at about 1 in the morning. Well the oil pan cracked in several places. I spent the night and repaired it the best I could to limp home after storm passed. Oil leaked to the tune of about 12 quarts in a 250 mile drive. Since then, I have used JB Weld to try to stop all leaks. I've been under the car 6 or more times trying. I know I need a new oil pan and was wondering if anyone can explain to me how much of a job is it to do myself while car is on driveway ramps or jacked up and on stands. Seems the labor costs I've seen are around $250.00 to $300.00...Just labor. Just looking, I can't see how much of a tear down it is to remove and replace the pan. Can someone that's done it offer some help? Much appreciated. It's a 2004 Cruiser not turbo.

Oh and if someone can tell me how to post a new topic too.
