You can do the UIM and LIM gaskets for about 150 easily. There'* a topic here regarding this:


The risk you take on in the wrecker motors is the possibility that the UIM or LIM gaskets have already failed. VERY careful inspection is in order. I suggest rolling the motor over and removing the oil pan. Look for signs of rust on the bottom end.
