Make sure it is engine oil and not coolant weeping from the internal waterpump via a bleed hole by the thermostate housing down by the alternator.

Both feel geasy and look the same. How do I know? I spent $900 replacing waterpump at main dealer. Originally I thought it was engine oil also. Failed at 65000 miles. Check your coolant level cold. It should not need refilling. If it does then it is a clue.

It could be the little plastic " O " ring that go's on the oil pan plug is deteriorating. this is common with time. if it hasn't been changed wen you have had your oil changed, I always put a little telon tape on the oil plug when I do an oil change just as a precautionary back up. To be 100% sure this is what the problem is you will need to be able to get under the car to check to see if this is indeed where the oil is coming from , as there coud be a leak some where else, for example it could be the valve cover leaking as this is a common thing as well. So as I say you will really need to get underneath the car to be positive.

A plugged pcv system will cause excessive oil leaks. But it sounds like you have a massive leak. If the passenger side is leaking behind the timing cover there may be up to four seals that may leak.single cam motor will have one cam seal dual will have two cam seals. Crank seal and possible oil pump seal. Would recommend pressure washing motor, go to local parts store and get some engine dye. Then support car and let engine get warm. And try to pinpoint leak.

What causes yellow gunk in the oil cap on my 2004 chevy trailblazer


Could be a leaking head gasket or intake gasket.
The gunk is water or coolant. Water if the engine never warms up, coolant if there is a leak.

I have a 2003 Mazda Miata sport edition. I checked my oil and nothing registered I just changed it 3 months ago. I don't see any physical evidence of leakage and no black smoke from tail pipe. What could...


I just had the same problem. I bought a 04 Miata 2 days ago that had just had an oil change. When I checked the oil yesterday and nothing registered on the stick. Then today I noticed some oil on the driveway. I looked at the oil filter with the engine running and saw the leak. There is an oil cooler pick up cylinder is between the oil filter and the block. with the oil filter removed, there is a nut that is not a locking nut which can back off. I took the nut off, cleaned the rubber seal ring between the cylinder and the engine block. I put everthing back together and no more leak. If the seal ring is damaged, it costs $12 ( I Priced one today but didn't need it. This may be the problem you are having.

Ok I have a 2005 tribute and I always run


This car has a catalytic converter, you can't see the smoke of the burned oil with it, it's cleaned. The oil could get in the plugs cavity only if there's a leak at the valve cover. My guess is that the oil seeps out only when there's pressure - the engine is running. To find where it leaks clean your engine thoroughly the start the engine in your driveway for an hour - where the oil will leak you clearly see it. In that case replace the corresponding seal.

It's likely rusted out transmission cooler lines. Only way to tell is to take a look under it. Might be able to see some of the line by opening the hood.

Oil leak--how bad is bad?


Doesn't sound serious yet. Take a good look for oil pan leaks, valve cover gasket leaks, oil filter, etc. just to know what it is. You may be able to get a clue from where the drops are.
