OIL LEAK FIXED

Well I think I finaly got it fixed. I worked on the truck for 6 hours today and it wasnt near as bad as I thaught it would be. I pulled the nut off the oilpan and TADA half an oring. GOthalf of it out other half must be on the bottom of the pan. Put new oring there and on dipstick no more leaks from there.

The oil cooler wasnt bad but still a long process. The oring inside the tube were so brittle I made them break in half just by pulling on them. Getting it back together is definitly to hard to do by hand unless you benchpress 500 pounds. Used a floor jack and jacked it up into the frame of the truck very gentle like and it poped right back together. I do think I fixed this leak too cause one of the gaskets were pulled from the metal.


I think the oil comming from the weep oil was from oil running down the rim of the oilpan and going into that area from the oil cooler. Yes my valley is dry. So if that wasnt it then its a rear main for me. Dealer wants 900 bucks to do it or 2 grand to do oil pan and rear main together.

Cross your fingers for me but I think I got all the oil leaks fixed. If its just a couple drips from weep oil I can definitly live with that.

Man it's been this long and I just noticed this thread.
