Oil leak when car is on slight slope


Im not fully conversant with Turbos , but I would hazard a guess from memory that there is an oil feed from the engine to the turbo to lubricate it. I would think that the oil sump in the turbo has a seal at one or both ends. When the car is level, the oil doesn't reach the level of the oil seal, and therefore doesn't leak. When the car is on a slope, the oil will level itself out and probably be above the oil seal and then it leaks. Check if the leak occurs only when the car is pointing uphill or downhill. It may give you an idea as to which end seal is leaking.

Why is my 2007 Nissan sentra 2.0 using 1 qt of oil every 600 miles?


More than likely u have a leaking valve cover gasket unless your seeing smoke than it might have a burnt valve guide or guides if its smoking real bad than it could have bad rings and you don't want that cause then u half to tear the motor down basically rebuilding the motor

I have a 1993 ford probe gt.. its starting to smoke under the hood by the passenger window its a light smoke it has an oil leak too.When I turn on my vent the smoke comes out this only happens when car...


you have an oil leak and when you step on the gas pedal the preasure inside the engine makes the oil come out faster and when it hits any part of the exhaust it starts to smoke i would find the leak and replace the gasket

I have a 2001 Saturn L. Oil is leaking, it is not the head gasket. Tore engine apart and replaced gaskets. Stopped leaking for about 6-7 months and it started to leak again. Did oil change last week...


If you have no visible signs of oil leaking out of the engine then the oil is being burnt. By visible leaking I mean a small puddle of oil under the car after having been left overnight. This can be cured by replacing shaft seals and gaskets. Burning oil is visible as smoke under deceleration (no throttle) and under full power(flooring it). This is due to worn/old valve stem seals(smoke under deceleration) and worn oil rings(smoke under acceleration) This can only be cured by a major engine overhaul or engine replacement. Bear in mind that losing a pint of oil in 1000 miles is acceptable.

Oil fouling out the sparkplug on cylinder #2


with 159k on the clock you should be using 5/40 in winter and 20/50 in summer,non synthetic,as it is more expensive than normal oil.(winter grade is for temperatures less than 0c,helps cold starts)
most modern cars use/burn about a pint every 1000 and that is exceptable,when it uses more than a pint every 250 miles then think about a rebuild....please do not use stop leak unless you are using it to sell the car on or as a temperary measure.
use an engine flush(de gunkes the internals) when you next change the oil and add molyslip.

My car gives out alot of white smoke when i start it in the mornings but then it goes away.i have already got the engine overhauled but the problem persists.i have to add 2 litres of oil every...


WHITE SMOKE INDICATE SLIGHT HEAD GASKET.STOP SMOKING WHEN ENGINE GET HOT.HEAD EXPANDS ENOUGH TO STOP THE LEAK.BUT I SEEN CASES WHERE THE HEADS HAD TO BE PRE TORQUE AFTER ENGINE OVERHAUL.ALSO YOUR ENGINE WILL USE OIL UNTIL PISTON RINGS SEAT.SO KEEP EYE ON OIL LEVEL.

I have a ford xe 351v8 it blows lots of black smoke


Black smoke tells me your piston rings are worn. Also the fumes you have explained tells me the valve seals are worn and leaking oil as well
The leaking valve seals and pistion rings will expell the fumes out through the exhaust. If you check your oil level every 50 miles and the oil level is down a half quart or more serious engine wear has occured and needs to be rebuilt soon
