My oil leak-drips in the driveway are getting worse.
Who do you recommend I take the truck to for a check up?

Oil leaks in the driveway mean you are not wheeling enough. The dust from driving off road will stick to the leaking oil. The heat from the motor will bake the oil dirt mixture to a thick tar sealing the leak. Easy fix just go wheeling. Option two is to just put a catch pan under the truck, when the pan is half full or when the oil pressure light turns on during a left hand turn add 2qts of oil, since you are always adding fresh oil you never need to spend the time or money on oil changes. You can then use the oil in the catch pan for the lawn mower or chain saw. My truck doesn’t leak, it’s on a constant purge of old low quality motor oil, power steering fluid, ATF, coolant, and brake fluid. Other than that it does not leak a drop!

Before doing anything, clean the motor thoroughly, then try to identify the source of the leak.:idea: It's always better to walk into the knowing what you need rather than letting them figure it out.:meh:
