Issues with leaks or corrosion in your Bronco's oil system can’t be ignored. If your oil pan is rusted or has a hole, you should replace it right away. Leaking oil can result in overheating and permanent damage to your engine.
Oil pans are easy to swap out and will work just like your factory one. Plus, new oil pans have great features like powder coat finishes, magnetic drain plugs, and slosh baffles.
Pick up an oil pan bolt kit to make installation easy. They include all the hardware you need for the job. Brands like ARP offer sets of American-made bolts with premium stainless steel construction. There’s no need to use your rusty original hardware.
After replacing your oil pan, it’s a good idea to check your oil filter and oil pump as well. Taking care of your oil system will ensure that your engine functions reliably for years to come.
