Rusted and leaking Oil Pan / Sump
 
Hi guys,

Need a bit of advice here,

I notice that my Jeep's (2005 Wrangler 4.0L) Oil pan / sump is very rusted, and the oil is actually starts to seep through.. I tried to very gently see if I can brush some of the rust away to paint it, as a temporary fix, but this actually cause more oil seeping through :facepalm:

I need to get a replacement Oil pan, but while at it, looking for something decent and stronger, that will last a while, and not rust so easily

Jeep dealers is charging around $250..

But found a few places that is cheaper..

Quadratec .. Does any one know if this is any good
Original Replacement Parts 53020831 - Replacement Oil Pan for Jeep® 4,6,8 Cylinder Engines - Quadratec

Getting cheaper.. but how good is SPECTRA vs OMIX vs Crown
Race Pages -

Any advice on a replacement as well as where to buy would be great..

Thx guys

I tried to find an aluminum and couldn't. They seem to all be the same. Mine wasn't leaking so I removed it scraped it and treated it with rust bullet. Whatever you buy I would treat it before you install it.

I'd just buy another OEM one and throw a few extra coats of paint on it before I bolted it up.

Thx for this, but with the current issue, i think its safer to go for a new one..

Yip, i will definatly give the new one a couple of coats... Hopefully adding a extra couple of years in the process!!

Yeah I know, the only rust on mine is the sump... Seems like they tried to save money and used low quality steel !
