I should probably get all my 8v92 oil leaks fixed eventually, I mean when your toad leaves drip marks on the pavement when you park....took me an hour and two cans of engine degreaser to clean out the trucks intercooler fins and radiator fins from all the oil residue.

Not to worry.  I was told several years ago when I lived in the Northeast that every drop of oil (and tranny fluid) you take out of your car should be put back in the body and rocker panels to prevent them from rusting. I religiously took my vehicles to the undercoating guy every fall to have him spray used oil all underneath my car and I swear it helped.  So if you have a bit of an engine/tranny oil leak, take advantage of it and let is splash on your car and you will see how much longer your car lasts.  Not only that but all of your bolts and screws will come out much easier the next time you need to repair something.   Cheesy

we oil spray all of our vehicles every year    BUT    use the right NEW oil  spray stuff . it is a pain in the a$$ but makes a huge difference . they like to use salt and now liquid brine on the roads     yuk !! 

the leaks can be fixed . 1st year out with the wrong oil in the 6v92ta 15 w 40 truck oil ( dumb truck mechanic ) used that on everything . we oilsprayed the nissan so bad it took 4 times with windex just to clean the windows . but after full out of frame rebuild and the right oil 40 w  " voila " no more oil leaks   

kind of like the light at the end of the tunnel

Lol. Dave I use straight 50 in the summer. I still have a wet toad. I detailed my engine compartment earlier this summer and realized every hose, gasket, and joint is leaking oil. Ugh

I couldn't live with oil leaks like that, that is over the top.  And all the oil the toad misses, the cars behind collect.

So how long did you have to tow the salesman before he became slimy? Grin

Where are you keeping the oil level on the dipstick? My DD 71 didn't like to be filled above the halfway point between low and full.
