My truck runs like new with 202000 miles/started leaking oil from both ? seals on 1995 Chevrolet 1500 Pickup

I think it is worth replacing the seals. It runs/looks like new but do you think it is advisable to invest that much money in it?

If you mean front and rear crank seals the crankshaft (main bearings) needs to be tested for wear, can see how much crank moves up/down after teardown. If excessive, seal will leak again. Also piston ring blowby can cause leaking. Check pcv system and have a mechanic check it out to give you a 'hands-on' answer/recommendiation!

Thanks for the info. I am going to buy the PCV tomorrow. Also, plan on getting the engine cleaned so we can inspect more thoroughly for possible leaks.
