OIL LEAK...

so, just curious to see if anybody had any ideas/fixes for the oil leaking from the dipstick where it terminates as the side of the oil pan. not a major concern of mine right now. i just saw something this weekend on a site about an aluminum fix? thanks in advance.
ps- love this forum, its been a huge help to me...

yea mine was leaking from that spot ( about 5-6 gallons in a 290 mile trip). I used solicon for now to slow it down but strictly diesel make a part to completely replace the oil flange with one solid piece on the outside of the pan for a better seal. I would look into that im actually ganna do that soon myself

(currently out of stock but good item)

the easiest way to avoid doing the is to pop the dipstick out take a pair of 4" vice-grips and lock them down where the dipstick goes. Then unscrew the nut and pull it to the base of the vice-grips, take a second pair and lock them oon the outside of where the dipstick goes (behind the nut) then pop off the first pair remove the nut and then replace the first pair. from there you can remove the second pair and use the first pair to manipulate the flange to put the new o-ring on or to check for damage on the flange itself, i have used this method twice and it does work.
