jeep10000 :

It is not abnormal for an oil pan gasket/seal to leak at that mileage. This can happen on any make and model vehicle. The heating and cooling of the engine will cause parts to expand and contract which will eventually cause a gasket to start leaking a bit. This should run you around $500.00 parts and labor to reseal the pan. Chris
