Stuck in Coatesville Pa, HELP PLEASE😘😘😘

Good day everyone! I am new to the forum and this is my first post. I have a 2000 gmc 3500 Short skoolie, 6.5 Allison Turbo diesel, 104,000 miles. I am leaking oil somewhere and there is a noise I canít live with. A mechanic told me itís my ďpollution beltĒ and that I should have it cut to make the noise go away. I REALLY NEED A REAL MECHANIC NEAR HERE. I am in coatesville Pennsylvania about an hour from Philadelphia.

I posted these links on your other post, but I've used this place recently:

They are 36 miles from you in Chester which is not good. They might be able to recommend somebody closer to you.

I've never heard of a "pollution belt" but perhaps there is such a thing.

Maybe runs the pump that lubes the muffler bearings with break fluid.

At first I thought "smog pump": the one that pumps air into the exhaust system to finish burning the unburnt fuel. But then I saw the year of the vehicle. I think they had moved on to better tech by then. Maybe I'm wrong.

EDIT: if it is the latter, it is likely a felony to disable it.
