Oil leak at bottom of timming belt cover


what engine.? lots of engines, used. and 21 models of civic, USA.
its usually.
1: valve cover, (yes, most can leak from top down behind the belt.
2: cam seals
3: crank end seal
4: oil pump seals.
6: oil pan ( last choice)

finding oil leaks takes hard work , clean, it find it .
or use the dye kits.

gravity and wind, allows it to go where ever IT wants.
so it must be clean first to find it.. see?
or use the dye kits, it shows a live leak best.

ever look here?

question, at the 60k mile service points. you check lash, settings.
with a new timing belt. and at such point, a new valve cover gasket gets fitted, did you? if yes, its not leaking if not>????
the front edge of the VC gasket, leaks down behind what i call
the VC leak hidder, tin pan. plate. behind the cam cog
is a plate, and the VC leaks down from there to the cam seal
then down front of engine, then past crank seal the, to cover.
seen this on all most all OHC engines...
cause, nobody does the 60k or does it and uses the old gaskets.
id look there first. but id dont have service history.
start high work down due to gravity.....
the FSM is here.
see that too. "free" too

Coolant leak


Hose ? The drain valve on the lower radiator ? The water pump has what's called a weep hole built into it. When the water pump fails water weeps out of that little hole to let you know it's bad. I think the ion probably has the water pump onth the front of the engine under the plastic cover ? ( not sure on that ) if it is the water will leak from behind that plastic cover making it look like its coming from the area where the oil pan and that plastic meet. It could get blown around by the cooling fan making it look a lot worse that it is. Check the lower hose and all the other coolant hoses for cracks or leaks as well as the entire radiator area ( sides, top, bottom ) check your rad cap when its cool and be sure the rubber seal on the inside of the cap is good and not cracked or dry rotted. If it is then when the water gets hot and pressure builds in the rad it will leak. When its cold it may not.

Oil leak front engine timing chan


1995 Tracker would have a timing BELT. Normal oil leak points (in order) on a Suzuki G16 engine are the distributor base (rear of motor), valve cover (top of motor), front main seal (behind lower timing belt cog) cam seal (behind the upper timing belt cog) and rear main seal. (behind the flywheel). I'd suspect the front main seal or cam seal. I use foot power to help find oil leaks.

Oil leak on driveway coming from front of engine


Dear Sir,
Here is the oil leaking Problem Identifying Technique

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket are common.

  • The intake manifold plenum gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption/burning and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.
  • External oil leaks from valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets (front or rear), and the rear crankshaft (rear main) seal area are common. The rear main seal is an unlikely source. Normally, the bearing cap mating surfaces (as well as the sealing surface between the oil pan and bearing cap) are the source for the leaks.
  • Engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from theintake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.
  • If the oil filter casing shows signs of distortion from excessive oil pressure, theoil pump should be replaced.
  • Often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
  • Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

    Water leaking from front of oil pan


    Very likely coming from the weep hole in the water pump, and dribbling down front of engine.
    The weep hole is usually on the hidden side (back) of water punp and not easily seen. follow the trickle.
    When water pump begins to leak like that, it means the bearing are wearing, and the seal is giving out as consequense. It will steadliy get worse. Verify the source of leak and replace the water pump if indicated..

    Have oil leak not heavy, but it leaks any answer were it could be coming from..


    Valve Covers, Head Gaskets, Oil Pan Seal and a number of other spots. You'll need to clean the motor with Gunk Engine cleaner and then look for the largest build ups of oil and crud to get a better idea where it is.

    1. timing cover is leaking oil betwwen cover and block
    2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    3. Remove the drive belt(s), fan and fan shroud. If equipped, remove the accessory drive belt pulley.
    4. Remove the vibration damper retaining bolt and washer. Remove the vibration damper using a suitable puller.
    5. Remove the accessory drive brackets attached to the timing cover.
    6. Remove the A/C compressor, if equipped, and alternator bracket from the cylinder head and move to one side.
    7. Remove the oil pan-to-timing case cover bolts and the cover-to-cylinder block bolts.
    8. Remove the timing case cover front seal and gasket from the engine.
    9. Cut off the oil pan side gasket end tabs and oil pan front seal tabs flush with the front face of the cylinder block. Remove the gasket tabs.
    10. Clean the timing case cover, oil pan and cylinder block gasket surfaces.
    11. Remove the crankshaft seal oil seal from the cover by prying it out with a suitable tool.

    To install:

    1. Install a new seal in the timing cover using a suitable seal installation tool.
    2. Apply sealer to both sides of the replacement cover gasket and position the gasket on the cylinder block. Cut the end tabs off the replacement oil pan gasket corresponding to those cut off the original gasket. Attach the end tabs to the oil pan with sealer.
    3. Coat the front cover seal end tab recesses generously with sealer and position the seal on the timing cover.
    4. Apply engine oil to the seal-oil pan contact surface, then position the cover on the cylinder block.
    5. Insert timing case cover alignment tool J22248 or equivalent, in the crankshaft opening. Install the cover-to-cylinder block bolts and tighten them to 62 inch lbs. (7 Nm). Install and tighten the oil pan-to-cover bolts to 11 ft. lbs. (13 Nm).
    6. Remove the cover alignment tool and position a replacement oil seal on the tool with the seal lip facing outward. Apply a light coat of sealer to the seal and a light coat of oil to the crankshaft. Install the seal on the timing cover.
    7. Apply a light film of oil to the vibration damper hub seal contact surface. Install the vibration damper using a suitable installation tool.

    Do not hammer the damper into place as damage may result to the damper or engine.

    1. Install and tighten the crankshaft vibration damper bolt to 80 ft. lbs. (108 Nm).
    2. If equipped, install the crankshaft pulley and tighten the bolts to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
    3. Install the accessory brackets.
    4. Install the fan and fan shroud.
    5. Install the drive belt(s) and adjust to the proper tension.
    6. Connect the negative battery cable.
    7. Start the engine and check for leaks
    8. .

    Replacing a timing belt on a 740 GL Volvo 1990 model


    Replacement of the timing belt on B230F engines is fairly straightforward. Note that you will need the proper tool to secure the crankshaft sprocket during removal procedures. Obtain the timing belt tensioner as well; it is designed to last only as long as the timing belt.
    Begin by cleaning the area around the timing belt upper cover.
    Remove the upper cover.
    Remove the drivebelts on all accessory components.
    Remove the fan (if you have a mechanical fan). Carefully leverage it out of the shroud. It may be necessary to remove the shroud as well - two 7mm bolts secure it to the radiator.
    Remove the lower bellhousing cover at the rear of the engine.
    Turn the crankshaft to bring the engine to Number 1 cylinder, TDC, firing. The timing marks will align when this is done.
    Remove the crankshaft sprocket bolt. It may be very tight, and clearance is quite limited. Take care not to move the crankshaft from its set position.
    Inspect all front oil seals before continuing, along with the water pump condition. If anti-boil weeps from the weep hole on top, you must replace the water pump or else it will contaminate the new belt.
    Lock the timing belt tensioner in position. This can be done with a small nail, bringing it back and out of the way.
    Remove the timing belt.
    Replace all oil seals that leak, are weak or missing. Oil will ruin the new timing belt.
    Installation is essentially a reversal of removal, after the tensioner is replaced and unlocked, spin the crankshaft sprocket two complete turns, noting if the timing is correct by way of the pointers aligning with the marks in the rear timing cover. Push down on the belt to ensure it seats correctly. Tighten the tensioner to the specified torque.
    Install the cover, rear bellhousing cover (if removal was necessary) and nuts. Screw the backplate onto the front timing cover.
    Install the fan and fan shroud.
    Refill the coolant if the water pump was changed.
    After double-checking installation items, road test the vehicle after allowing it to warm up to check for coolant or oil leakage.
    After 600 miles, remove the rubber plug at the front of the timing cover. Loosen and tighten the tensioner bolt. Place your labels indicating mileage and date of timing belt drive maintenance at the front of the engine.

    Leaking engine coolant from bottom of engine front passenger side


    Probably a water pump seal unfortunately. Pressurize the system, with the engine off, use a mirror to look under the water pump pulley to see if any fluid is dripping from the water pump seal weep hole.
    If it is, change the water pump.
    Good luck, let me know.
