Thanks for your help. My trusted mechanic in Car X here in Naperville said when he looked in his system- total labor hours for LR3 oil pan change is 19. So at $160x19 dealer rates =$3,040.
I trust Brian in Car X. They changed my LR3's tied rods and wheel bearings. Breaks and alignment too. Did some work on my X5 - drive shaft, oil separator, etc. First time he told me this is one work he cannot do. To get to the oil pan,the engine has to be raised, removed the transmission, lots of work.
I'll check Mityvac. Thanks again.
