    I want to replace my stock oil pan. I believe that the tin, being a bit bent may be causing a little leak near the rear of the engine. I thought it may have beeen a rear main seal at first, but after pulling the inspection plate, everything near the RMS is dry, adn it looks to be leaking from the back of the oil pan.

    I replaced my valve covers with cast aluminum ones, and they have not leaked since.

    Is there an oil pan with the same theory?
    Where can i get it?
    Cost?

    Any ideas?
