Can I reuse engine oil which contains leak dye?


Topic starter

I have a 2006 Ford Mustang V6 4.0 with 81k.  I suspect I have oil leaking from the timing cover.  I plan to use engine oil dye to confirm.  I recently changed the oil.  Am I good to drain the oil to replace the gasket and then reuse it?

Thanks for your time.

then reuse it?

Do you really want to be doing the job again when it leaks because you skimped on a $30 gasket?

No, am I safe to reuse the oil with the dye.  Sorry for any confusion.

ah gotcha.
I don't see why not
