Hello all, and thanks in advance for any advice.
I'm fairly certain I know the problem, but wanted to run it by once before I
go and buy another car.
I've been driving this Tbird for 6 years and it has really been extremely
low maintenence, always been a good car I like to drive. It has never once
leaked a drop of oil, might burn a quart about the time it needs changed
Until last night.
That's when, after being parked about 5 hours, I came out to find at least a
quart, likely more (3-4ft diameter puddle) of oil oozing out from under it.
There is a steady drip that seems to be rolling down the back side of the
oil pan. I'm fairly certain I'm looking at a blown rear main seal, not the
kind of thing I'll be fixing, but I wanted to ask, is that typical that it
would cause a leak of that magnatude? or is something a little simpler
I have some real difficulty getting under that car to in a position to check
thoroughly, due to a recent back surgery and how low it sits, even on
ramps... so there's the uncertainty...
