Driving on highway at 55 mph, rpm is over 4500, then Blu a seal, engine oil all under the van.


Why was rpm so high? Trans stuck in 2nd? Crazy rear end gear? Does it always do this, or was this abnormal? As to blown seal, replace it.

Heater core may be partially plugged. Also check the heater control valve to see if it's letting water into the heater core.

98 Subaru leaking oil


Oil leak will not change run temp but can cause a fire.
The smoke is the oil burning on the engine. The 1st thing you need to do is clean the oil off the engine.
Next top oil off to the full line on the dip stick.Now start the engine hold idle up to around 1600 rpm for 1 to 2 minutes keep engine run and look for the oil leak. Don't get caught in any moving parts and things will be hot so be careful. Most likely from your valve cover.

Hi. I have an '82 F-150 with a 351 c.i. engine, the extended cab version with the full-length bed, 4WD, with only 20,000 miles on it. When I'm driving about 70 mph, the tachometer reads 3000 rpm, which...


Hi

It does look like you have a 3 speed C6, if the PRND21 description is correct. If you do have overdrive, the "D" will be printed in a white oval.

Sounds like it is OK. My Mustang has a 351C with a C6 trans, and 3000 rpm is about right at 70mph.

The defining factor on the rpm will be the Differential gears, which in a truck, might very well be taller gears instead of highway gears, as the taller gears provide more power output at the axles than the highway gears do.

Example:
if you had 3.0 to 1 gears (Highway), that means that the driveshaft will turn 3 times for every complete revolution of the rear wheels(Axle)

If you had 4.0 to 1 gears, then the driveshaft would turn 4 times for every revolution if the axle. Lots of torque for pulling stumps, but on the highway. the engine will have to turn more rpm's to maintain 70 mph vs a 3 to 1.

with the 3 to 1, you will turn less rpm's on the highway, but will have less available low speed power (Torque) at the wheels.

Sounds like the truck is doing fine.

Sounds as if converter on exhaust is getting plugged up. have it checked and replaced. That will force exhaust out ahead of it where ordinarily it would flow with less pressure. Oil leak is a separate item.

How many miles is on the engine?
If it's close to 140,000 miles then it's over due for timing chain and timing guide change.
A loose timing chain will offset timing.
===
Before you do the next oil change. Add a motor flush to clean out the internal parts and free up the rings.
This is the inexpensive method to restore some of the lose compression.
==== Do a 5-10 minutes high rpm highway ran (NO REDLINE).
This will blow out the soot in the exhaust system. ====
Check your vehicle emission batch under the hood.
If it's from California or has California emission then let look for the catalytic converter.
Over time it can become restructed.
As a test,loosen the bolts at the collector pipe and do a short test ran.

Please post any additonal information on the commect window. I will follow up on it.

98 forester blows oil 2.5


You have a problem with a gasket, basically the gasket on the head of valves, then you only have to change the gasket, this a common problem when the gasket is broke or burned.

Blown tire hit the car


i would highly recommend getting it checked out by either a shop or someone you personally know and trust that has auto knowledge... the black oil leak is most likely engine oil... the light and thin aluminum manufacturers use now days can break under just the right conditions... heat and stress... when the tire piece went under your car it may have hit your oil pans(engine and transmission.. red oil) and caused either the pan gaskets to leak.. or maybe even the pans them selves to get cracks... hopefully it's just the gaskets... not too hard to fix and ALOT less costly then new pans... as for the light .. no clue what it's supposed to be...but good luck
