Question about 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier
I have a leak that is pretty much steady when I park my car. I come out and it looks like there is a small puddle near the front of the car, about 6 inches from the radiator. Not sure, though. I figure that if I change the oil pan gasket, it should solve the problem.
Does anyone know how long it would take a person to change the oil pan gasket and if that will solve the problem?
Replacing an oil pan gasket on a car shouldn't be too difficult for you, say, about an hour or two. As long as you follow some simple guidelines, the leak should be eliminated. Improper tightening or seating of the gasket material can defeat the purpose of your work. Grab a Haynes manual, or a tech guide for your vehicle, and have it handy.
I would suggest tracking the oil leak to ensure that it's not your front seal on your crankshaft. The amount of oil that you describe sounds like a bit much for an undisturbed oil pan gasket.
