    I have come to grips that I will need a new engine before Moab. But I need to make this one last till summer.

    Problem One: Rear main seal leak. Msquared and I replaced the pan, so that isn't it. It is dripping down all the time. my underbody looks like the innards of the Exxon Valdez

    Problem Two: Coolant leaking off the driverside front hanger at start-up. Doesn't always do it. Might it be a head gasket problem??

    Thanks for any advice, help or tips.

    <font color=blue>I had some coolant on my drivers side front spring hanger and it was the petcock on the radiator. Does it show usuall bad head gasket symptoms (white smoke out the tailpipe, sweet exhaust smell, low coolant)?

    actually, yes, IIRC. it has been under construction the bast few months, hasn't been driven much. It will smoke a bit on start up, then that's it.
