washer everytime to make sure it won't leak. but i went online and look for an oil pan

seperately. but i really need to know if this dealer is just over charging for something is

$100 online is probably an aftermarket brand. Most shops will add 100% to their parts witha warranty, so $200 max is what I would pay for the pan itself. Find another garage to replace your pan.

Retail is $117.80 for the oil pan (googled online Toyota parts). It is possible the rest is for labor, but I think it is only a 1 to 2 hour job. Go to the parts department at your dealership and ask what the price is for an oil pan for your vehicle. Most dealer repair shops sell installed parts for full retail plus labor.

The official labor time for changing the oil pan per Toyota is 2.6 hours. So @ $100 = $260 labor (dealer rates) The pan from Toyota, dealer price is exactly what Bob said, let's call it $118. Gasket $18. (BUT some don't even use a gasket, only high-temp silicone)260+118+18=$396 -Now, 4.2 quarts of oil+ filter $60. 396+60= $456. Either you forgot to tell us something Tony, or they are ripping you off. The only reason it take 2½ hours is because the exhaust has to come apart to get the pan out. Dorman, a reputable importer and manufacturer of aftermarket parts sells a brand new pan for $55

Is a towing charge involved in this? Also the parts catalog listing for an oil pan says *except high output*, not sure about that, but pretty sure your Corolla is just a standard CE model.

They didn't offer the High Output in 2001 Bob. You're right, there was only one engine available for the 2001 CE. 1.8L 1ZZ FE.-- The 1.8L HO was only offered for 2005 and '06 and never for the CE

No they just gave me a paper that said 720 for oil pan and i have not a problem with this car. So i was clueless so im curious if this guys intended to make the hole really loose so i have to replace it to them. Im glad i ask you guys thanks for the help

Bob i didnt have to get it towed its still functioning its just they wont touch my car again if it has a leaking issue before so they gave me a estimate for the oil pan.

I just looked up the price for the HO engine oil pan and it is the same. My thinking was that they might have priced the wrong pan, but pretty sure now they are trying to get into your pocket. I am a former Ford parts man and it is easy sometimes to quote the wrong price especially when you get in a hurry.
