    Great! Now can you be a little more specific about, "where the oil gets pulled out of the pan"? Are we talking the drain plug, oil pump? The description is a little vague..

    See if you can get me a pic of where the leak is comming from. Then we'll go from there. The oil pump is inside the pan and cant be seen from out side the vehicle. It can leak @ the pick up or one of the seals but it would leak back into the pan and not on the ground. If there's a bad seal/gasket externally, then pressurizzed oil could be get out elsewhere. How bad is the leak, 1 qrt, per week, more/less? Like I said snap a pic of the engine and where you think it's leaking from. Then I can help more.

    My DD is a 1994 firebird with the 3.4 engine. My car was leaking oil too...crawled under there and found that the oil pan had rusted sooo bad that oil was leaking out of the oil pan iteself (there wasn't a hole persay) but anyway, took a peanut and rubbed it on the area to get the leak to stop. Then JB welded the crap out of the area.....so far so good
