    I had that leak for a while. Between front cover and engine block behind air compresor. Tonight entire left side of the engine is oil covered. I quess I cant ignore it any longer. How much it'll set me back? It's a Volvo.

    structure plate gasket, just did my 1st one and I had about 35hours in it, it was in a prostar. so that included removing bumper, hood, radiator assembly, all front cover components, and retiming the front gear train, vac/recharge a/c. its pretty labor intensive.

    I've lucked out. It was leaking from base of oil dipstick tube. So 100 bucks later I got new ( and improved) dipstick tube, but I'll have to get the other leak fixed soon. So I wander what else can I get done when the cover is off. I'm thinking fan hub for sure. Any other suggestions? thing got 900k on it.
