Yeah, this one only has 134K miles. I am still getting a few tiny drops of oil dripping down. There is probably a leak somewhere else, too - but this seems to have solved the majority of it. We were losing a quart about every 500 miles.

: $850 sounds like a pretty good price. I'm thinking arough $1K.

: Might wait until my cousin's backyard shop is finished and doing it myself.

: Hate that, no excuse for a rear main going at 125,000 miles these days. Toyota Sienna MV as double that and nary a drop has ever leaked from it.

: : I don't know what it would cost on the 8.1, but we had our 2000 5.3L 4x4 Tow Pkg done for about $850 this week. They had to pull the transmission to do it so most of it was labor.
