Wheels Asia - - Letter of the month -

Dear Ed­i­tor, lately, I have been get­ting the check en­gine light warn­ing on my dash­board. Fur­ther in­spec­tion at the work­shop re­vealed that my en­gine oil is crit­i­cally low. We tried to find the source of the leak and man­aged to nar­row it down to the en­gine’s oil pan, which has dark spots of en­gine oil on it. Could this be the prob­lem?

My car is a Toy­ota Vios, reg­is­tered back in 2008. Through these eight years, I have had lit­tle prob­lems un­til this re­cent check light is­sue. Prob­lem is, should I spend the money and re­solve it by chang­ing the oil pan, or fol­low the me­chanic’s ad­vice to have it sealed and wait it out, since he said that the leak is rel­a­tively mi­nor and should not be a ma­jor is­sue.

Please ad­vise, thank you. – Ade­line Lee
