I have a 97 Cat. and it just blows me away how these oil and coolant leaks keep coming back. Is there anyway to stop these leaks for good?? Im tried of giving my money to the dealer because the mechanics there dont seem to know how to fix these leaks.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Are you getting leaks from the same areas? If so what are the areas?
It looks like its coming from the back of the engine. You dont notice it that much if you drive it everyday. But let it sit for a week and you have a nice spot on the garage floor.

sounds like the heater bypass valve that everyone has to replace.

I just removed mine last night. 3 in 2 years at $90 each, i capped the one hose and connected the other 2 with a 3/4 hose connector.

the one i capped i used a 3/4 hose to 1/2 npt connector and teflon tape and a 1/2 flare cap. so far no leaks and i have heat when i want it.
