If its in the line its self just cut the line in two and take some fuel line hose, the right diameter, slip it over the line with a couple of clamps and that should fix it. Theres not much pressure there and its a cheap fix.

SOURCE: My daughter has 1995 Chevy
I had a '93 Chevy Lumina (sedan) with the 3.1L V6, and it was also leaking oil badly enough to coat the underside of the car with an oily sheen. A mechanic pointed me in the right direction. There is no distributor on this car, but there is a blank-off plate installed where the distributor used to be. The oil pump drive shaft runs off a gear meshed with the cam under this plate, which is also what the distributor used to be driven from. All I had to do was remove the plate, replace the gasket fitted between the plate and the opening, and oil could no longer seep through there. As I remember, I had to remove the air horn from the intake plenum to get at this plate. Hope this helps.

it sounds like your oil pressure sending unit has gone bad. It is on the top back of the eng. close to the fire wall. If you don't have a good tool to take it out you could use a plumbing stem puller. It worked great. proper size is 1 1/16
Good luck and hope this helps. When replacing the oil sensor, make sure you do not use and teflon tape or silicon. The sensor is tapered and need a good ground to the engine to get proper readings.

SOURCE: coolant leak
i cant tell you exactly what it is cause im not ther but you have to go under the car and detect where the leak is coming from....try radiator stop leak if it is a smaller leak it will stop it for a couple weeks. if it is a large leak as i think ur saying go under the car get a rag and clean off the fluid. keep on looking towards the top(on water pump, on engine block by intake manifold)and see where its coming from...i had the same problem it was my water pump...if its the manifold and its small get hight temp RTV sealer an try that....could be loose hoses or crack in radiator...you gotta look. good luck
