Oil leak after injector replacement
 
Truck ran great on a 5400 mile jaunt from MN to FL, FL to TX and TX back to MN...but leaked over 1 gallon of oil from two leaks - BOTH sides of the engine, at the valve cover seals.

The underside of my previously spotless 2004 truck is simply black, and dripping oil from everywhere when the truck is stationary.

Truck goes in for repair tomorrow, I am going to press the dealership for a complete degreasing/steam cleaning underneath. :mad:

Sounds like a poor surface prep job, or the wrong sealer used. Being that both sides are leaking, I think you can call this one all on the tech who did the job, regardless of why.

Well the bright side is my truck won't rust up this winter. You should see it...its like painted on black sooted oil over everything. My driveshaft used to be grey aluminum in color. Its black now.

SUCKS :mad:

Better check your repair order. Did they charge you for the undercoating job?

Well, leaks are fixed (we'll see) and no bill for the extra day back at the shop...

The bottom side of my previously spotless truck looks like a *&^%$%& tar pit - even after the 'cleaning' done at the dealership. My plan is a serious dose of foaming grease cutter and more time with the power washer. The driveshaft will never be silver again...probably light brown, rather than dark black.
