Question about Chevrolet S 10
I have a 2002 chevy S-10 crew cab 4x4. V 6 4.3 it has bout 143,000 runs great top of engine is clean but i have an oil leak. its not massive i have owned it for bout 5 mnths and i have a oil spot on my garage floor, its not a puddle but u can tell that i have parked in the same spot. its pretty wet underneath. so i was wondering if i should replace the oil pan gasket and get a new drain plug for it. ooh and i usually have to add a quart of oil in between oil changes.
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:)
