k.. checked the oil via dipstick and seems fine ( no milky residue ) but thats not to say it didn't settle down to the bottom... so I guess I"ll ask them to change my oil ( they'll probably use Fossil oil bleh.. but was thinkin of runnign that for 1000km.. engine flush then switch back to synthetic.. this is when I get my car back ). it basically was immersed up to the bumper.. I"m hopein none got into the tranny though ( via some relief valve or breather that'* suppsedly on the top of the tranny ) .

So in regards to rust.. is it at the bottom of the pan I look for ? or everywhere that the pan was hiding? If so.. then wat?

The relief valve is on top of the Trans, and is a one-way valve. You should be ok. If you were immersed only up to the bumper, I'd think you probably didn't get any water in there. You'd have to be up to the dipstick level at least to get any in there.

Whew.. thanx Bill makes me feel better now.. so after the initial 1000km after, engine flush and oil change, I guess thats when I will drop the pan.. I"m thinkin I probably will see rust particles/dust cause the engine hasn't been turned in a while and the cylinder walls and such are probably rusted ( thus the early oil change again ).. wat should I be lookin for ( to know its ok, and uh-oh.. time to go steal Jim'* Northstar ).

Well I am not so glad I came across this post.....

I did get my car last week...after its repair process....runs great...
drove it for 3 days...went on the highway..opened her up a little to about 90ish
got off the ramp 3 miles down...

Temp went WAY high...Fans both on CRANKIN'
Oil pressure.down LOWWWW...
Ding, ding ding DING!!!!
Ok...I know that my Thermostat was stuck shut....
I brought it back to the guy and he fixed that along with some other little issues i have...
not mechanical related...

He replaced thermo. and it running at temp...I have not picked it back up yet because of him fixing the other things i requested.

BUT I was there the other day after the Thermo. replacement and it was running good.
I looked in and saw the oil pressure gauge was still on the low side...I commented on it
and said....when you give it a little gas the oil gauge comes up...and with driving it stays up
until the next time it idles...

AM I IN THE SAME BOAT.......??????
98k on the OD
WTF....I don't need to hear this right now....uhg......
