The pan is cheap....
But you need to pull the motor. Around 2 grand i believe. It is relatively simple, just time consuming. Its also a good time to do other important fixes like glo plugs/exhaust manifolds and up pipes while the engine is sitting on a stand. Just look for one with a good pan on it and you will be all set.
