Average cost to replace oil pan gasket AND rear main seal??
So, my brothers 92 LX has had an oil leak develop.. it didnt look to bad at first, but after beating on it some while trying to figure out this ****ing stuttering problem, I noticed a good amount of smoke, and a a decent sized puddle under the car where we had stopped for 2-3 minutes.
My bro had it checked out on Monday when he got an oil change, the said rear main seal, AND oil pan gasket are both leaking. Total cost to fix both of 'em: $800 ****ing dollars. Now, I'm all about doing this **** myself if at all possible, we could get into the hobby shop on base and have access to the lifts and power tools, the only thing is I nor my brother have the time for that, at least not for 2-3 weeks. If it continues to leak at this rate, thats not acceptable.
So now we need to find a shop that'll maybe do it for us.. or maybe fix the worse of the two? What are we looking at realistically here as far as cost goes?
