Default Oil Pan Rust

Has anyone noticed their oil pan rusting when then you change your oil? I changed mine yesterday and it kind of worried me, if i touch the rust it falls right off. Would the oil eventually make it through??? Should I have the dealer take a look at this? I do have a warranty on the truck.

Last time I was under my truck a couple months ago I didn't see much rust but then again, we don't have treated roads in winter. I don't see why it would hurt to let them look at it and see what they can do for ya.

Doesn't look to bad yet Kyle. But it's hard to tell for sure with a pic. Never hurts to call and see what they say, but if not and it worries you, just clean it up and re-coat it. Just hope it doesn't crumble and cover you in oil, Haha !

Ha ha! That would be so nice to have oil all over...... Maybe I'll just wait for it to start leaking......

After the summer the an got worse, took Rocky to the dealer on Friday for some other things to be fixed. I mentioned the oil pan and today I got the phone call theyre replacing it for me! Got to love the extended warranty!

Glad to see that turned out well for you.

I am not so lucky on the 3.7 in our 2007 Nitro, as it is out of warranty and the pan looks much worse than yours. I am dreading that job, as it is really tight under there.

The 4.7 in the Ram has never been exposed to the weather, so it still looks new though.

That stinks about the nitro. They replaced the oil gasket and oil pan. Got home not too long ago and I'm still amazed they did it.
