wellllll. first you need to find out what is leaking. I cannot tell you this information because I cannot see the vehicle. so clean it all off and find out what is leaking. and fix it.


^ I agree, if it's between the oil pan it's easy to pull the pan and replace the gasket, just make sure of where the leak's coming from incase it's farther up the motor.
