Question Oil Pan

For the second year in a row, I have been told that I need a new oil pan (they have been unable to remove the screws). I paid just over $160.00 for the pan and the labor. I know that I have two left feet and two left arms, but can I do this myself? I am a so-so handy person and if it's not a major job I don't mind getting grease on myself.

What "screws" are they referring to? The drain plug? An oil pan usually lasts the life of the car. Since you already replaced it once, there should be no reason to do it again.

Also, the make, model and year of the car would be helpful.

Entirely depends on the vehicle---key information you left out of your post.

It could be anything from a cakewalk to being better to have someone handle it for you.
