I had been in a car accident with my 1999 Ford Taurus station wagon. I was hit by a drunk driver in the rear. I had the body damage repaired. Tough car! My oil pan started leaking and I had it repaired by a popular mechanic shop. It started leakinjg again soon afterward. So I decided to put it on myself. A trick I used was liquid teflon on the bolts because the oil was leaking out through the bolt holes. The leaking stopped and the car runs great. We have had it for years and it is still going strong.
