Truck been sitting in garage about 1month and decided to take it out for a drive,,,started right up but then notice oil streaming right out,,,seems it was coming right down the oil filter from the top,,are there oil lines on top which could have rotted through?causing the oil to pump out...thanks Rick

    there are several pressure points but i agree, it may be the cooler lines as they run back to the oil filter area. there is also an oil pressure sender unit. you need to have this leak verified and then get a bid. hope the parts are still available from the dealer. if not, then a company named dorman makes a lot of these lines aftermarket .

    go to a shop to get this verified and get a bid.
