So I finally get around to trying to fix my engine oil leak last night. Two weeks ago I replaced both oil cooler lines and it did nothing to stop oil spotting.

So last night I steam clean the truck and lay under it and have my SO bring the RPMs up to 2500. The welch plug next to the oil filter is spraying oil.:mad3:

So do I:
drive the plug in further?
epoxy over it?
remove it and tap the hole and screw in a threaded plug?
Remove and replace with a OEM LR welsh plug?

Lemme go take a look before I comment.

Also, there's a brewing thread in general...

Were you on Diane Rheam this morning? There was a guy suggesting folks go to OldScout.org (or was it .NET).

Looks to me like this would be a good candidate for a pipe plug! Just make sure it doesn't go too deep as I'm not sure where the internal ports are that probably shouldn't be occluded.
