Q: Slow leak in oil pan

asked by on

There is a slight, or very slow, leak from the oil pan. It was recommended that I reseal the oil pan, but I am not sure what that entails.

Hello. Resealing an oil pan is not an easy job for someone who is not an experienced technician. I would suggest that you have a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, come and replace the oil pan gasket.
