Slight oil leak around head gaskets.
Oil leak around oil pan gasket.

Water leaking in floor board of rear seats, only when there is a hard steady rain.
I have 2003 Monte Carlo SS with 90,000. The car is not so bad if it wasn't for the maintenance. I try to do everything myself in my military post auto shop, which has been a great help.
I currently have an oil leak around my oil pan, however I was told that is an $8.00 front crank seal, and that the oil on the pan and bolts was just blow back. The total cost $200.00 for me to get this fixed. Not too bad, except I still have the same leak on the under belly frame. So I now am going to attempt to do the oil pan gasket myself, which if I can't accomplish this, I got quoted $375.00 to have somebody do it. I lose about 1 quart every 3,000 miles.
I also have a transmission that's slipping as well. No matter what it is, I will probably just send it off to a high performance shop for $2000.00, because all said and done, I spend more money, but it will out perform the old one.
That being said, I like car; it gets great gas mileage for what it is, it looks great and there are few performance mods for it as well.
