Things happen, oil leaks are just one of many, if you have low miles the gaskets have most likely shrunk from lack of use, if higher mileage they just give out eventually, the only real fix is to have them replaced, and go to a shop where they will do it right and not shortcut it.
Thanks 10500 miles I've spoke to three other people as soon as they hit 10000 head gasket leaks started
Looks like you need to replace the gasket, just like shoe says, it's going to happen sooner or later !
They can go 200k or more with only minor leaking but usually they give out earlier. If you can live with a small drip it could go quite a while longer.
Its a good size leak the main problem the drip is hitting the exhaust and the smell is to much to take. Going to have it done the head gaskets Dont know what is a fair price. Thank you for your help
Between 2 and 3 grand from what I gather, it all depends on what you actually need once it is torn down and inspected, some shops require other things like water pumps, radiators, etc before they will stand behind their work, and that raises the price, but gives you peace of mind that the job is done right. So you do really need to find a shop that will do it right, it will be worth it in the long run.
Do you guys have like a list of recommended shops in my area. Again your advice has helped a lot. Frank
