It also can be a lengthy and expensive repair. Bob's Main Street Auto starts with degreasing the engine and adding dye to the system. When the dye is added, we ask our customers to drive their vehicle for a week or so and then bring it back. We use a special light to look for the dye on the engine to see exactly where the oil leak is coming from.
