Oil leak is getting worse.

Illustration for article titled Oil leak is getting worse.

This is about a 12" diameter splash zone over three-ish weeks. She used to leak maybe 3 drops a month, now leaves oil anywhere no matter how brief without fail.


I don’t know if the pan gasket has finally excessively degraded, or if I stressed it further with my frequent short trips from moving.

I don’t trust myself to properly diagnose what’s going on, let alone fix it. It’s nearly 40 years old and coated with oil as you’d expect. Probably too expensive to fix professionally. But I don’t like oil drops over my decent-ish driveway, street, and garage floor. What should I do? 🙁 Live with it?
