only way to fix it is to drop the oil pan. and if your going to do that i'd just replace the gasket with a new one. it looks to be leaking judging by all the oil around it so i would replace it. otherwise just watch your oil level and pressure really close if your not going to replace it.

yeah i was told the only way to fix it was to drop it and i heard its pricey. i have been checking the oil level and it doesnt seem to b changeing. what do u mean the pressure? how would i check the pressure of it? yeah it is a little bit oilly but not that much because its not enuff of a leak to make it drip all it does it come out and stay on it.

I would let it like it is until it starts leaking oil really bad. Like start saving now to get it fixed and by the time it starts leaking bad, you should have enough money saved up to fix it.

Yeah, but don't wait too long, becuase it does more than just keep oil in, it keeps dirt and crap out.

by pressure i was just saying monitor your oil pressure gauge but if you dont have one just monitor your level.
