Oil Pump Drive O-Ring May Leak Oil on Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme

An engine oil leak may develop from the oil pump drive O-ring. This can often be confused with an intake manifold gasket leak. Careful inspection is required to determine the exact cause of the leak. Replacement of the failed 0-ring will commonly correct this concern.
