    1993 Taurus it had been driven little and often sat in the garage before I bought it, so I thought that may have caused the gasket to dry out. Now I see it is a common problem. Now needing to replace it before the engine is damaged from too much loss of oil suddenly. Which had almost happened once already when it first happened unexpected.

    Had the car seviced and the person changing the oil reported a leak around the oil pan. Called a certified mechanic and he stated that it would cost about $390, i live on a strict budget and opted out of getting the leak repaired, i do monitor the oil daily to make sure that the leak is not getting any worse.
