Q: Oil pan gasket has a slow leak/drip

asked by on

A slow oil leak from the oil pan is usually not an urgent issue, however you will of course want to be sure to check the oil frequently to be sure you do not run low and cause substantial engine damage. As you may know, over time these types of engine gaskets will eventually shrink and become brittle and in some cases tear causing a leak.

To avoid any unnecessary repairs, I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose your oil leak firsthand.
