How much does it cost to fix an oil leak?

Answer

Depending upon the specific vehicle and repair in mention, the cost to repair an oil leak can be anywhere from $100 to $1000. There can be many reasons for an oil leak. The most common cause is a degraded oil-pan gasket.

The first step to identifying the price of a repair is to assess where the actual leak is coming from. If old, burnt oil is slowly leeching from the top side of an engine, the vehicle probably needs a new head gasket. If oil is dripping from the oil pan that is attached to the underside of the vehicle, a new oil-pan gasket should be installed. The gaskets are cheap, anywhere from $10 to $75, but the labor can be expensive.
