We are looking at buying a 2002 ford explorer but the inspection says it has a bad oil leak from both valves

Asked by May 03, 2014 at 12:22 PM about the Ford Explorer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

How much will this cost me and what is the likelihood that the leak will reoccur?

It's a common failure but there are upgraded gaskets (and silicone seal). Approximately $250 to $300 parts and labor. Just be certain that it's the Valve Covers and not the Intake Manifold. That can really run into money.
