Went to O'Reillys and found out some not so good things....

Ok fellars......Here we go again.....
I took the truck to O'Reillys....Turns out I have a slight oil drip, and either a intake gasket or a injector O-Ring leaking, or both....The intake gasket , and a new set of injector o rings are roughly $25....I figure why not rePlace both at one time.....Now the oil drip has to be either: Oil pan gasket, or rear main seal....Both of which I am sure are major PITA's....If it's the rear main seal, I'll just hold off till I get the $$$$ to do some beadwork and a camshaft....Just posting a minor update....

I almost thought this was going to be a thread about what's wrong with O'Reilly's.

I'll trade ya, I'm pretty sure every seal on my engine is leaking. The bottom of the engine doesn't stay clean long enough for me to track any down.

I only recently fixed the coolant leaks (yes that is plural) just as by brakes have begun to leak from two places

The problem with America today is stupidity. I'm not saying we should punish the stupid people, but perhaps take the safety labels off everything and let the problem solve itself

Luckily the brakes and coolant are good for me and I just fixed an axle seal. I just happen to have oil and tranny fluid coming out of every imaginable crevice.

On my 300 a suspicious oil leak appeared, and I couldn't trace it down; Seemed to come from everywhere and kept just about everything from the coil back wet on the bottom.

It was the lifter galley on the driver side of the engine.
the Cork gasket went to pot and even had chunks missing, how any would get through the engine and not block something up is a mystery to me but from what I saw everything was nice and clean and no debris.

Cleaned up the cover, replaced the gasket with a rubber Fel-pro one and it came with new gaskets for the bolts; No leaks since.
