Q: Seeping oil pump

asked by on

My oil pump is seeping.

This is a common issue on your type of vehicle. This is a pretty good size job. All timing components and the oil pan usually need to be removed for this repair. This is something that I definitely would suggest seeking professional help for, such as a mechanic from YourMechanic. Correct reinstallation of timing components and oil pump parts is critical for proper engine operation.
