Here is my car information:
CAR: 2000 Honda Accord 4-Cyl ULEV Automatic
I bought my car used as a third-hand car, so I am not completely familiar with it's history and treatment. I was told that there is a oil pan gasket leak. I check my oil regularly (once every two weeks) and have never seen a problem with the oil level. How serious a problem is this? The quote for repair was $400 (they have to drop the transmission to access the oil pan). Is there another way to solve this problem? Are there any gasket sealants that I can add to my engine oil to seal the gasket leak?
I am a student and don't have much money. I need to take the car in for a timing belt replacement next month for $400. I won't be able to afford both repairs in sequential months. I thought I'd take care of all the problems in a stepwise manner, and assumed that the timing belt was the first thing that I need to address.
Any help you can give me would be much appreciated.
