Hi common fault on these is the oil switch oil runs down the block around the oil filter and down the sump as you are driving along the air draft blows it all over the place so clean it up run the engine and from underneath the car see where it is coming from the only other things on the sump that would leak are the sump plug washer and the crankshaft main oil seal at the rear of the engine it will be the switch best of luck paul

Is there a certain type of gasket or something else when there is a oil leak starting in a 1998 pontiac firefly


clean around the oil pan gasket area well as some oil leaks are actually rocker cover gasket and filter leaks that run down the block and appear as pan leaks.. Check front crankshaft seal as the oil from there also appears as a pan leak

Oil leak between filter mount and oil pan.How to be sure which one is leaking.


did you make sure to remove the old oil filter gasket before putting the new one on cause sometimes they stick on there,check your old oil filter if it has the rubber gasket on it or not,and drain 1 quart out of the oil plug if you put too much in or you will blow oil seals

Oil leak on 2002 chevy silverado 6.0 around oil pan seems to be coming from the front and dripping down the oil filter


Hello....The first thing that you want to check..since you said the leak is in front is the area around the bottom of the crank shaft..If the oil is comming from there...This is where the main oil seal is for the crank shaft bearing...If no oil is comming from that area...you can breath a sigh of relief...There are a lot of stop leak products for everything from radiators to oil systems to transmissions...I'm not a big fan beacuse ...If it can stop a leak...it can stop the flow....The best cure for an oil pan leak is to drain the oil.....Drop the oil pan...replace the gasket...and if you do it right...you'll be good to go for a long time...PS.....don't forget to replace the oil....I hope this was helpful.....PEACE.....

Leaking transmission fluid


TRANSMISSION FLUID LEAKS,CAN BE FOUND AROUND PAN GASKET.CHECK PAN GASKET,IF IT LOOKS WET AND YOU SEE FLUID DRIPPING AROUND THE EDGE OF OIL PAN, REPLACE PAN GASKET, WHILE YOU REPLACING PAN GASKET REPLACE TRANSMISSION FILTER WHILE OIL PAN OFF.IF TRANSMISSION OIL PAN NOT LEAKING, CHECK TRANSMISSION OIL COOLER LINES GOING INTO RADIATOR YOU WILL LOOSE A LOT OF FLUID THERE ALSO TORQUE SHAFT SEAL WILL CAUSE HEAVY FLUID LEAK WHILE ENGINE RUNNING CHECK OIL COOLER LINES AND LOOK AT THE TORQUE AREA WHILE ENGINE RUNNING YOU WILL SEE FLUID POURING WHILE ENGINE RUNNING THE OIL PUMP PRESSURE WILL PUSH FLUID OUT AT THE LEAKING AREAS.

Having an oil leak at the bottom of my camry, not the oil pan gasket what else could it be.


There are three other area's that can leak, here they are in order of how often they occur
1.Engine Valve cover gasket(s) (2 if V6 engine), oil runs down the engine and drips off the pan.
2.Rear crankshaft seal leaking
3.Front crankshaft seal leaking. Oil is blown back by air pressure while driving and rips off of pan.

Oil is leaking from car, but there doesnt seem to be oil on the motor.


HI. This may be a oil pan gasket issue. The gasket is facing downward towards the ground, so the leaking oil in this area would not necessarily touch the enigne block. It would actually run down the sides of the bottom section of the oil pan and the rim areas. Also; make sure that it is indeed engien oil. It may be transmission fluid or power sterring fluid, as well. Raise the vehicle or slide under the frame to take a closer look at the oil and transmissin pans to locate the actual leak point.

In most cases of this nature, it will be either the transmission pan gasket or oil pan gasket that will be the culprit.

05 honda accord losing oil


First have to determine where are you loosing it from.
Possible engine oil leak areas : Valve cover gasket,oil pan gasket, rear main,oil filter. crank or cam shaft seal, oil pump. Pcv valve.
If its transmission oil leaking here are a few areas of interest: shell of transmission( depending where on the shell could be oil pump, or converter., vents, and axle seals.
If your not capable to jack the vehicle up and look for the leak , then take it to a repair shop.
Keep me posted

Oil leak


Northstar engine, that's about right. They do take about 8 quarts.
The most common place they leak at is at the oil filter housing that attaches to the block of the engine.
