Oil Pan Question

How can I find out if I have the original oil pan? Is there an "easy" way to do this?

Post a picture of it and someone should be able to identify it... But, why does it matter?

Because I cannot get a reading on my dipstick until after 8.5 quarts of oil. I have the correct dipstick, but now think maybe I have a larger oil pan.

Thanks

I've never heard of a larger capacity oil pan for the V8, but that doesn't mean they aren't out there. Looking at the other thread, you've confirmed the dipstick is correct -- what about the tube?

Good point, but possibly tricky for him to determine without pulling the pan. I have a tube/stick from a 94 D90 (3.9L) that I could measure.

Heck, maybe one of the pro's can confirm this, but I'm willing to bet a pan and tube/dipstick from 3.9L would fit on your block fine and be a proper "pair". If this is the case and you want them, let me know.

I would be interested if this would work on my truck, please let me know what you are asking for it.

I will be draining the oil on Friday and will post picks of my oil pan to see if anyone could tell if it is original or aftermarket

Thanks

I don't need anything for it but I don't think I'll have time to pull it until next week. The dipstick is accessible so we can can compare measurements there I guess.

Can anyone confirm that the sump/dipstick tube/dipstick setup from a 3.9L V8 will fit a 3.5L V8?

They are the same. All the 3.5 and 3.9's were the same. You can even use a pan,stick, and tube off of any year D1 even the 4.0's. The GEMS RR's and Bosch stuff is different. Don't check the oil with the engine running and you won't get a reading of 8.5 qts.

Brett, if it helps, here are the dimension on the 3.9 dipstick

Stick- from top of the "bell" to the tip is 22 1/4"
Stick- from bottom of the "bell" to the tip is 21 5/8"
Tube - total length 17 3/16"
Tube - top to seat where meets the block 8"
Tube - seat to bottom 9 1/4"

When the dipstick is fully inserted, 5" protrude from the tube.

Issue solved, after looking at cqalpin's measurements I realized my tube was not seated all the way. I seated the tube and changed oil and added 6 quarts and she is full. Thank you everyone for all your help.
