So I noticed some shimmy in my steering wheel and I brought it in to a shop because I couldn't see anything. Well it turns out that I have small flat marks on my front tires (from locking them after my ABS failed). Well I thought that was the bad part... I also have an oil leak.... except its on the rear main seal and the oil pan seal... So i found that they want to charge me 1000 bucks to fix it... I'm a little bitter and I think Ill just do it myself. I do have one question though, It is a VERY small leak and it started after i put in my Synthetic oil. Do you think I might be able to stop the leak by going back to regular oil??? Thanks!

it isn't easy to change out an oil pan gasket on our cars. it take a while to do, it's not like you just unbolt the oil pan and it just falls out . have you taken a good look at the bottom of our cars?

i seen the guy do it on my car and i would charge what he charge me to do it. it takes a lot of time to do, and it just a PITA to do. but i was charge around 400 not 1000. look else where

Yeah they had to pull my motor out slightly to do mine, it was done because my mechanic broke the dipstick off in the pan.
