I have a 98 with oil around the spark plugs and cadillac says for the valve cover gaskets, (also the oil cooler $546 oem part) it will cost a total of $700. How much time to i have before something really gets F'd up if i dont romp on it? Also, what is the worst case scenario?
Anyone know where i can get the part cheap? Anyplace in NEW YORK that will do the work cheap?
If i were to get this done elsewhere other then cadillac, what are all the parts I need except for the oil cooler because i was told that there are alot of other gaskets that need to be replaced at the same time?
For your car, id say if its not leaking right now.. all you need to do is inspect the seal around the bottom of the cooler. For cracks/flaws in the seal... if you want, get some GM Specified sealant and clean off the remaining seals.. then re apply the new sealant to the oilcooler... saves a lot of money and it works.
