Hi 1love, I have an oil leak. One mechanic has it now, he wants to see if it’s possibly the head gaskets. I’d love to find a great mechanic to do any and all work. It’s been a challenge to find someone.What seems to be the problem Sir?

1love, thanks for the input. I’m really wondering if it’s the rear main seal. Here’s a link to my oil leak problem:Well I would get your truck back ASAP a head gasket doesnt cause an oil leak! Valve covers, oil pan, and rear main seals do!
It turns out one of the replaced valve covers (passenger side) is slightly leaking. That and the Rear Main Engine Seal is bad. Two mechanics in a row have not fixed the rear main seal problem. It took me and a backyard mechanic to figure it all out.Check below the IP, too, in the valley, to see if there is a bit of fuel there.
As for a good diesel mechanic, ask at your local NAPA. They often know who's good and who's not. Might look for someone who does truck work.
Whatever you do, be careful about letting them work on the electrical system! It's different from what most people are used to, and this board is full of horror stories of mechanics who decided a perfectly good truck needed to be "fixed", because they didn't understand the system.
Then it's frying time again, you're gonna burn it.
I can smell the links a-melting, at the back.
I can tell by the way you hacked it, buddy,
That it won't be long before it's fryin' time.
