Not likely with only 27k. Probably valve cover gaskets leaking if the leak is under the engine. Transmission pan gasket if under the tranny. Could also be the filter or the drain plug leaking. When installing the filter, be sure and oil the gasket, make sure the old gasket came off, and tighten 3/4 turn after the filter contacts the mounting surface. Also check the drain plug gasket. If the leak is there then just replace the gasket and tighten to 20 lb/ft torque. No more, no less, or you may cause a leak. Remember on a car that is driven rarely, it is a good idea to change the oil/filter every 6 months, even if the car is rarely driven and has few miles since the last change.

Pontiacs are also notorious for leaking at the rear main seal, especially after a rebuild. Although I'm assuming this one has not been tore down. With as few miles as this car has, it has probably sat for long periods of time allowing the seal to dry out. The hardest thing in the world on a car is to sit for long periods of time. But I agree that it is probably not a major or serious problem.

How do you a remove sterio from 1990 Pontiac lemans?

My recollection is that there are four little holes; two at the right side and two at the left side. You need to stick a suitable sized wire into the holes and that will unlatch some metal prongs that hold the stereo in place. Then it should pull out.

Sounds like they require you to torque to 18 foot pounds then tighten an additional 60 degrees. 90 degrees = 1/4 turn, so a little less than 1/4 turn of additional tightening.

Not without a LOT of modifications. Use a rear end from ANY '64-'67 GM A body instead. The rear ends installed in the Buick Skylark, Oldsmobile Cutlass and Pontiac Tempest/Lemans are a little different, but will bolt right in with NO modifications.
