Question about 2002 Mazda Tribute
Wow, they epoxied the oil pan? I would not go back to that shop. It's possible they created the problem but it's a bit suspicious that this happened after you took it to them. After they epoxy it (which hopefully they won't charge you much for) take it someplace else and get it fixed the right way. If that epoxy fails and you lose all your oil while you're driving you're going to spend a whole lot of money on a new engine.

They cud be rite but dealers usually are mor xpensiv--hard to find gud mechs-anywhere-reading manuals urself is a good place to start--rmembr car is over 10yrs-things wear out--oil pans in junkyards work--always check titeness of bolts afta someone did work-shops get busy and peopl forgett etc-they dont often testdrive also--if u work underneath ur car use jackstands cause a jack alone will move and fall-----search magicmechanic online-send him the ordeal-hes a master on any make n model

I will never buy a mazda again. They have bad transmissions and engines. What is worse they use the same parts as Ford. How in the world do you combine a japanese and american parts into one engine? It keeps breaking down, thats what happens. I would ride it out since you are already gettin an engine but if you haven't purchased it, sell it and put that money towards another car, the dealer has used you like a gold digger.

Suggest trying to wash off engine as good as possibe start from top down thenrun car on 20 minute road trip and than with car running check engine looking at top of engine and working your way down...gravity right! and check that valve cover bolts are tight and if valve cove gaskets not done ( but reading your complaint it looks like they were,.) If you suspect oil pan gasket inspect closely and cheeck those bolts as well, if any loose, do gasket.

Testimonial: "ill try that. thanks! they say you can put a dye to see the leak? what kind of dye is this? will it mix with the synthetic?"
Not likely. My 2001 Tribute developed a leak at the oil pan gasket about two years ago. I got the gasket replaced, but it was expensive. I would take it to another shop and get a second opinion.
