I know this is a subject that has probably been covered to death here but
About 6 months ago, I bought a 96 T/A convertible with just under 82k on
it. At 81k and about a month prior to me purchasing the vehicle, the owner
had the intake manifold gasket and the crossover pipe replaced because of an
oil leak. I have put about 3k on the vehicle and never had any issues with
it. Never noticed any leaks, smell, nothing....Then, in August, I had the
oil changed and drove it about 500 miles before putting it away for the
winter in September. Last week I moved the car out of my garage for the
first time and found an oil puddle about the size of a grapefruit underneath
it. Looking under the car, all I can see is a drip off oil on the bottom of
the oil pan.
Am I looking at a new intake gasket after only 3000 miles?
