Three (3) months and 2,000 miles Follow-up:

- The Engine Oil Sump is Bone Dry, not a single drop of oil!

- The morale of this lesson is: if you think you have a leak from the Oil Pan Gasket, think again!

Oil is likely leaking from the Oil Filter Housing Gasket and the 2 Freeze Plugs in the back of the Oil Filter Housing and not the Oil Pan Gasket!
