If the filter is leaking, change it. If it is the oil pan, and the shop is saying they will have to "lift the engine" to repair it, RUN, don't walk, away from that shop and go to someone better qualified. I am a GM Factory Trained Tech and currently work for a Chevy dealer in CA. We DO NOT lift engines for oil pan repairs. We use an upper engine support (the long way to do it) or a screw jack from underneath as support (the shortcut way for us flat-raters) and then remove the right side bolts and "hang the cradle" from the left side bolts. It is genrally a 4-6 hour repair estimate from most shops. Hope this helps. -
