[DML] Re: Oil leak, ideas and inspiration!!



Where would it leak onto? My thought would be the top of the portion 
of the frame that runs around the front of the oilpan? From there ti 
would drip from the middle. Would it cause the transmission bell 
housing to become covered in oil? I have an oil leak, and replaced 
the pan seal thinking it was the problem. How do I go about resealing 
the oil pressure sender? I assume teflon tape is not the answer :-)
