My 01 Aurora is leaking oil I was told it will be a $3000 fix. Due to the oil pan leak & a leak above the oil pan where is an additional leak. The Mechanic said something about an half deal. So basically there 2 leaks close to each other. I'm at a crossroads. Any advice is welcome. This car has about 106k,and in good condition othethan the current issue.

The oil pan leak can be fixed for about 300-500$. The pipe that goes across the oil pan can be cut out pen removed gasket changed and then welded back. The other leak i am guessing u have 4.0 is on most cars but its mostly small and if you change oil every 4k or so and just keep eye on the level of the oil you should be fine with another leak. My 4.0 had this leak from 100k now it has 177k . But oil pan gasket was replaced by the method above.
