Default tech tip - finding oil leak

ok, most of you may know this already but...........using a black light makes finding oil leaks easy. you can purchase flourescent oil dye from you auto parts store and add it too your oil. then use a black light bulb and a pair of yellow shooting glasses to see exactly where the oil is coming from.
