Just got a new alternator and battery and found out that I have an oil leak coming from the pan, gasket, both hoses and front seal. I am financially tapped, but can get a "friendly" loan and am in need of a ball park figure for the above mentioned repairs. I thank you sooo much for any assistance you can provide.
