    My 1995 suburban is approaching 230,000 miles. Same engine, tranny, etc. The radiator has been recently replaced along with new brakes and tires. Have an oil drip that I can't diagnose myself right now due to shoulder surgery. Has anyone had a similar oil drip problem and if so, what was the cause and cost for the repair?

    Can you tell roughly where it's coming from?

    The leak is to the front of the engine and more to the drivers side.

    I had a leak that was hard to find (for me!) turned out to be the oil pressure sensor which is near the oil filter on my '88 silverado. Yours could be a valve cover, timing chain cover, intake manifold...

    I've herd some horror stories about the front and rear seals. Mine needed the valve cover gaskets replaced not to long ago..
