Q: Car leaks oil after oil change

asked by on

The car is leaking oil after oil change. The dealer said the manifold gasket needs to be replaced, because that is where oil is coming from.

I recommend having a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, come out to your car’s location to run a diagnostic inspection of your oil leak, and suggest the best path to repair.
