Any suggestions

When I changed my oil last night I decided to clean up the underside of my motor some, and I discovered a crack in my oil pan. It is long, but it isn't to a point where it is leaking yet. Is there any suggestions on things to patch it before it starts leaking, or do I need to try and find a decent condition used one? Checking rock auto and gm parts direct, it seems as if it has been discontinued.

Personally, I would find a decent used one at a salvage yard; I imagine that they are plentiful and relatively inexpensive. However, I've recently discovered this product - "QuikSteel" - which I've had great results with. http://bluemagicusa.com/index.php/bl.../products/164/

2.2l, I forgot to add for those that don't know, the ecotecs oil pan is cast aluminum and from what I am gathering not hard or uncommon to get a crack in them, but most info is from when they were still able to be bought new, so that is how they went.

They have them on ebay. Can't do a link. I use the app.

Thank you. The ones I saw on there when I looked are cast different, but I will have to research a little to be sure that throttle body is the only thing that changed between the l61 in the alero and that in the cobalt and ion and such.I am also gonna keep an eye on aleros for sale in the area because with 192k and no title in my name ( there is an unresolved issue so my aunt and uncle cant sign it over, so I get it tagged through them) it has a growing pile of smaller things that is making a lower mileage alero seem more and more cost effective than repairs.
