I have a bad oil leak. I think the head gasket needs to be replaced.
Hello. Although head gaskets can leak oil, it is not a common cause of oil leaks. More common areas of oil leaks are the oil pan gasket, valve cover gasket, oil filter cap, or the oil filter housing gasket. Before replacing the head gasket you should have these areas inspected by a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, who will be able to pinpoint where your leak is and repair it.
