1993 Safari AWD Oil Pan - Can I use a newer Gen pan?

1993 Safari AWD Oil Pan - Can I use a newer Gen pan?

Postby svenhook [OP] » February 28th 2018, 12:24am

Sorry if this has been answered already. I searched around and didn't see much about it.

I've got a 90 Safari AWD and the oil pan is leaking pretty good so I need to replace it. Looking around it looks like they stopped making it so its hard to find / pricey. Don't appear to even exist on Rock Auto from what I can find.

Was just curious if anyone knew if the newer gen pans would fit on the older model. I'm assuming not but hoping to save a few hundred bucks.

Thanks!
Steve

Rockauto says no, but they have been wrong before. They are a cheap option though.

If its leaking, why are you replacing the whole pan? Why not just get a gasket to seal that puppy back up?

You're right. Talked to the mechanic and he just meant to repalce the gasket and not the pan itself.

Thanks for the info and sorry for the wasted post!

no, a new gen pan is different cause I put a newer motor in my 95 I thought the older pan would fit. the newer pan is drilled differently from old school pan the holes on the block are different
