Question about 1987 Dodge Caravan
Think the oil is leaking from either the oil pan gasket or the valve covers. for someone who has never changed either on this vehicle, how hard would it be to do myself?
What I would do if I were you, I would go to the local auto parts store and buy a Hanes Repair Manual for your specific car-make sure it is the correct year and model. Read and follow the directions written in the manual. If it is just an oil pan or valve cover gasket, the manual will show you step by step on how to do the job correctly. It is not hard at all. After your done fixin, you'll have a sense of accomplishment and would have saved approx. $100 in labor cost. Good Luck.
