K75RT oil pan leak question
New to site. Lots of great stuff here. 91K75RT- just turned 40k miles in the deep woods of ME.
Q - My oil pan cover is leaking. I assume its due to O ring seal, or dirt, or warping of actual cover. I also recently upgraded to dealer synthetic oil. I've drained the oil twice, cleaned all the bolts, screws, and everything that could possible have dirt on or in it. It's still leaking. I noticed a huge improvement in engine performance with new oil, but is that part of the problem(viscosity?) Any suggestions?
Also, I bought Mobil oil filter and Synthetic 15W-50 oil to try out instead of dealer synthetic. Read some positive reports on it. Any thoughts welcome and I know this might stir the pot a bit.
Thanks, and glad to be here
