Re: Finding an oil leak

Find a puddle of oil and look up..[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Clean as much crud off as you can on the suspicious area.. The cleaner it is the easier it is to find the leak.. After about a day of use check back on the cleaned spot to see if its wet with oil.. Keep the oil levels up durring any of this.. That includes blinker fluid..

Some companies have this flourecent additive that goes into your oil and you hunt around with a UV bulb looking for the glowy spots..[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] What else are these guys going to think up?
