A kind relative just sold us his 2001 V8 F150 4WD pickup at a huge discount from Blue Book value. It is in very good condition and drives nicely; but, the relative told us that it has a “slight” oil leak (1 qt every 4 or 5 tankfuls of gas) from a little crack somewhere in the engine. His mechanic said it would take $2500 or so to fix this; and that it would be fine to keep driving it without doing the fix, unless it started to use more oil.
Any thoughts on whether we should get a second opinion on this? Thanks!
