Well, im trying to get rid of all the leaks on the car, and the oil leak is the worst.
when i bought the car, it had a thick coat of oil from the lower engine back to cat converter. old oil, new oil. the works.
the car was also 5 bottles of oil low. the previous owner had the car at the dealer, and at that time the technician said that it was leaking oil and that oil pan gasket probably needed be replaced, tran. fluid gasket too.
I got a quote from a mom and pop shop for $500 , ($490 labor $10 parts)
and then I got a quote from the dealer for $625. dealer is actually huge -- about 39 techs and they fix like 100 cars a day so I feel pretty comfortable in them not screwing it up too bad or at least making good on it if they do.
my question is, any way to fix the oil pan gasket without replacement? is there some oil additive that fixes leaks?
thanks mucho...oh by the way, I found place to clean to cars underbody for $36...looks really nice now! no more oil!
