possible 1/2 case oil leak.....
When I had the engine replaced in my Son's '99 Eldo last year I bought a 3 year warranty. And the car has run great, but I don't know if the oil leak which has developed will be covered...
In the event that it's not, what is a reasonable price for a 1/2 case oil leak repair ? Nothing has been easy with this car, and I'm preparing for the worst....It's never anything simple with these Northstars
Thanks for your opinions,

Re: possible 1/2 case oil leak.....
It won't be cheap. The drivetrain has to be dropped and the halfcase opened. If I remember correctly it is about an 18 hr job. For the cost of the repair it is better to live with the seepage.
