Oil leak

Asked by Apr 12, 2017 at 10:40 PM about the 1995 Cadillac Seville SLS FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1995 Cadillac SLS leaks oil when parked on a
downhill slope only. Three round areas can be seen
on the street at the front of the car nearest the area
of the radiator. Been this way for several years now
and doesn't use a lot of oil between changes. Is my
oil pan leaking or is it a rear main seal  or ???

Check the oil pressure sending switch. They were notorious for leaking. If that's the trouble, replace it with an AC Delco switch only!! Aftermarket switches won't work correctly in this application!! HTH. -Jim
