Question about 2002 Chevrolet Silverado
Hello....The first thing that you want to check..since you said the leak is in front is the area around the bottom of the crank shaft..If the oil is comming from there...This is where the main oil seal is for the crank shaft bearing...If no oil is comming from that area...you can breath a sigh of relief...There are a lot of stop leak products for everything from radiators to oil systems to transmissions...I'm not a big fan beacuse ...If it can stop a leak...it can stop the flow....The best cure for an oil pan leak is to drain the oil.....Drop the oil pan...replace the gasket...and if you do it right...you'll be good to go for a long time...PS.....don't forget to replace the oil....I hope this was helpful.....PEACE.....

SOURCE: oil leak on 2002 chevy S-10
HI, the best thing to ensure the right choice of repair is to look under the vehicle and inspect the oil pan and plug. you will notice on site where the leak is during this inspection. Considering the miles on this vehicle, the oil consumption is quite normal. you will have to replace the valve seal and rings soon. most oil consumption will occur around the 90-100,000 mile mark. Most likely, this oil leak will be coming from the oil pan itself but, it always good to inspect it before you buy new parts.
Please rate and god bless:)

Does this truck have an oil cooler? These will be noticable oil return lines that are connected to the housing above the filter. It could be a return line or the housing needs a new gasket.

this truck is equipped with an aluminum oil pan you could have 1 or several things going on... a stripped drain plug which is causing it to leak or it may be a leaking front seal or a rear main seal. If it is a front seal it is not to labor intensive. But if it is a rear main seal leaking it will require the transmission to be removed since the seal is a 1 piece rear main
