OIL DRIP

Ok so I was putting some more oil in my lude like 3 days ago and I spilled a little bit . How long will it take to stop dripping? Its making me paranoid because I keep thinking I have a leak but my oil level on the dip stick isnt going down. How long do you think it will take to finally stop dripping? It wasn't very much spillage at all.

Re: OIL DRIP

Not trying to be a smartass or anything - but why not just try to clean it up rather than just wait for it to finish dripping? We have no idea how much you spilled let alone where - trying to clean it up is the only option here.

Re: OIL DRIP

Go buy a cheap can of brake cleaner and clean up the spill. Make sure to spray the back side of the block as well.
