Lower Oil Pan for V6 VQ35DE
This lower oil pan bolted on no problems. Only 1 stard because drain plug seal leaked horrible and had to re-drain and install copper washer. Recommend using copper washer instead of the seal that comes with this pan.

Bang for your buck
Bolts right on, good quality build, came well protected/packaged. Shipping took a bit longer than I thought. Will definitely recommend it if youre looking for a budget oil pan. The drain plug diameter is the same but the head of it is a 12mm instead of a 14mm, which is not a big deal as you can replace it with an OEM size one if you feel so strongly about it for a few bucks at your local dealer or transfer the one from the old pan if its in good shape but just throwing out there for information purposes. Did replace the drain bolt crush washer/gasket with the copper OEM one as someone recommended on another review. Pretty happy overall, will be ordering from you guys again if I need anything else.

It fits!
The pan fits my 2000 Nissan Maxima but the oil drain plug is not the same size. The original size was a bolt with a 14mm nut and this one has a 12mm nut and M10 thread. But it.s all good! Tightened it by hand since I didnt know the torque specification for that plug. Overall Im happy the pan fits on the edge of the aluminum pan. Just put it on today! Thanks for the help!

Is the drain bolt size on this aftermarket pan the same as OEM?
M A September 22, 2017
I dont have the exact specs on the drain bolt, but is should be the same as OEM. Our parts are designed to be exact replacements for what came with the vehicle, so as long as your year, make, and model match up with our listing, these will definitely fit and function just like the original. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
