LS LEAKING OIL
LS IS LEAKING OIL. I LOOKED UNDER CAR TO SEE WHERE THE LEAK WAS COMING FROM. THERE WAS A SLIGHT DRIP FROM FILTER. WHILE I WAS UNDER THERE, I NOTICED A BOLT MISSING FROM THE DRIVER SIDE OF THE OIL PAN. THIS IS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE OIL DRAIN PLUG. SEEMS TO ME THERE SHOULD BE A BOLT THERE? I HAVE ATTACHED A PICTURE. I APPRECIATE ANY FEEDBACK.
Don't think you're missing a bolt. That could be for mounting an optional accessory that your car doesn't have. Like a smog pump or a power steering pump. Could be for securing a (missing) splash guard too. Another possibility is that your oil pan either was replaced at some point or it fits more than one engine. HTH. -Jim
