This look to be a good quick fix.
Why not just replace the entire Oil pan? Is it that much trouble?
I do not recall at this moment what the underside of my Van look's like....
This is not a problem for me as my Van has really never been in the Rest Belt area for more then a few days at a time...most of which was in summer weather.

A Word of warning for those who travel out here in the Wild Wild West.
While traveling the interstate keep an eye open for "GARTOR'S" on the highway.
A "GATOR" as we call them out here, is a RECAP TIRE TREAD that has come off a Truck or Trailer.
These Tire Treads have been the cause of a number of traffic collisions on the highways.
A vehicle swerves to miss a Gator and a chain reaction is started.
These dislodged Recap Treads also will do MAJOR DAMAGE to the undercarriage of your Vehicle.
Be careful out there.

Some have said that you can change the oil pan without pulling the engine, but I don't see how. The pan can't come out without at least lifting the engine a few inches, and there is no gasket to replace......it's a caulk joint that is (properly) applied to the block.

By the book procedure is to pull the engine, turn it upside down, scrape-clean-prep the block for the new caulk and pan. Then caulk, snug the pan, wait for some time for the caulk to mostly set, tighten some more, and on and on.

It isn't like it was on my 1971 Galaxy 500..... (yeah, that pan rotted too).

You would think that after 100 years of trial and error, they would build oil pans that didn't rot.......

That is correct...the engine also should be inverted for the sealant to set free of oil contamination....Who ever says that engine removal is not required is a liar and a fool ...I have repaired MANY things with fibreglass / epoxy ...does not last very long however...especially here where it gets COLD....maybe California or Texas it would last longer......On edit I just watched the video ....looks like that might just work....Good Luck.

Those guys remind me of the Newhart show. "Hi, I'm Larry. This is my brother Darryl and my other brother Darryl..."

Thanks for the info. on the Oil Pan.
This explains a couple of things...
Twice now Ford dealer'd has made me an offer to buy or trade my Vehicle after it came off the lift.
Last year I had one Battery go bad, which was under warranty from my local Dealer, The shop in Phoenix was very aggressive in wishing too Buy this wagon.
This past Summer I had my Oil Changed in St. Paul, A local Ford dealer was running an Oil Change special $75.00.
They also were quit interested in taking this van in as a trade.
With only 98K on the clock I'm not quite ready to part with it.

My oil pan is rusted and I been wiring brushing and painting it yearly. (96 E-150 C.W.)
I repaired a oil pan that was leaking on an old tanker truck with Locktite epoxy
mix and it lasted for several years.
