Cost to fix oil leak

I'm buying a 97 Pontiac Grand Am. I'm told there is an oil leak between the engine and the transmission and you would have to take either the engine or tranny out to fix it. I'm wondering how much that would cost.

Autozone and oreillys have oil leak sop additives. what these do is make the seals expand and seal off the leak. i would try this first.

Why does my oil pressure sending unit leak oil on my 97 grand prix gtp 3.8 engine ?


Because its bad. I have unplugged some before, they have that silicon seal, and there would be oil inside the plug.
Just replace it.

You need a new speed sensor put in the transmission housing or the plug to it has faulty wire ends.If the sensor is leaking oil the you need one for sure,if the plug is wet with oil when you pull it out then replace the sensor.

I took my car in for an oil change and they said I have a leak in my transmission line leading to the radiator. What do i need to get done and how much will this cost?


This line is your transmission cooling line, it cools the fluid by sending through the radiator. Depending on where the leak is going to increase the cost. You can buy a new line for 15-30.00 if needed, although you may fix by tightening the connections or if there is a hole in the line you can slip a short section of rubber hose over the line then clamp with hose clamps to repair the hose. Hope this helps.

seems like your oil pressure switch gave up, its located on the side of the oil filter, you can take it out and test with a amp meter. it should cost you less than 20 bucks to buy something like that.

Could be quite costly. Especially the rear main seal on the engine. You have to take the trans out to even get to it. I would look for something else with less problems to buy.

Leaking A LOT of oil - looks like from on top of the filter. It doesn't seem like the lifters are getting oil because they are loud


It could be the oil pressure sensor for the oil light or guage.I have seen this before after age and heat plus vibration could cause it to crack and leak a lot of oil like you describe.Get it fixed asap.It should be easy to unscrew with a wrench or large socket .Buy the new sensor first though so you can replace it once you get the old one out.It leaks alot because of oil pressure from the oilpump pressurizes the rest of the engine bearings.It could break altogether and pump all your oil out and ruin your engine.
