I have an 02' cougar and was wondering if the oil pan that is on it stock is the new updated version that everyone is talking about or is the new one really new. Also if it is different, how and are there any pics that show the comparison?

The bottom of the oil pan will be molded in one of two ways- Either a flat-ish bottom, or one with all sorts of cross-hatching. A pic:

'99 2.5L oil pan:


The newer oil pan has the cross-hatching across the entire bottom of the oil pan, not just the stripe that you see in the pic below. Other than comparing casting numbers, this is the only way i know of to tell.

Ok I have the one with all of the cross hatch on the bottom. So I guess that is the new one then with the new oil baffle pattern in it.
