It came from somewhere in western PA.
A big problem was the fact that someone had undercoated it at some point and the undercoating dried out and cracked. The salt got into the crack and just sat there and ate away whatever was there. I'm in the process of scrapping all of the undercoat off and I'll just have it oiled for winter...if I still have it.
The pan is steel and so are all of the replacements. It's a 3.0L, not sure about the 4cly and the 4.0L.
