My 01 Neon 40K mi. purchased new,appears to have an oil leak. Technician that changed the oil said it was leaking around the head. He suspects the head gasket. Is this a common occurrence with the neon? What's involved in the repair? All responses will be appreciated.

my 2000 did that and it turned out to be the cam sensor o ring that coasts about $4 and is rather easy to replace, i did mine in about half hour.

WELL I TAKE IT ITS LEAKING OUT AND NOT IN THE HEAD. RIGHT ? IT DEPENDS ON WHAT SIDE YOUR TALKING ABOUT IF ITS THE SIDE WITH THE DRIVE BELTS IT COULD BE THE HEAD, CAM OR CRANK OIL SEALS WITCH IS WHERE MINE IS LEAKING FROM. IF ITS THE SIDE WITH THE BATTERY IT COULD BE THE HEAD OR CAM SENSOR. THE FRONT THE HEAD. I THINK THATS ALL THE BACK A SENSOR OR HEAD. OR THE BLOCK COULD BE CRACKED. THE BOTTOM THE OIL PAN.
ITS ALOT OF WORK FOR SOMEONE THAT DOSNT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING.AND SOME SPECIAL TOOLS ASWELL.
WHAT I WOULD DO IS TAKE A FLASH LIGHT AND SHINE IT ALL AROUND THE BLOCK AND THE HEAD AND SEE IF ITS NOT THERE LOOK AT ALL THE OTHER SPOTS I SAID. I HOPE I WAS A BIG HELP
