2006 pt cruiser oil leak three small drops all with in a foot and a half of each other


When the head was removed to replace the head gasket, likely oil was 'spilled' down the sides of the engine block. If it wasn't completely cleaned, it may have accumulated on the frame cross member or other components below the engine. I would clean up the drops on the floor and watch for additional evidence for a couple of days. If they keep appearing, take your car to the shop that did the work and have them check it out for you.

What causes water to leak into the interior after rain?


Are you saying the water reappeared while the car was still in the garage? Hope this is not true, as that would most likely be related to the heater core or plumbing, but I thought all that was on the passenger side. If you mean after putting the car back outside and in more rain, possible cowl vent tube leak, windshield leak, or door vents at bottom edge blocked with debris.

Smoke from exhaust when start ls400 model1991 lexus color of smoke is gray it ends few second


the smoke is from engine oil, it is caused by leaking valve seals , after the engine is shut down for the day oil is leaking past the valve seals and getting into the cylinders then when you start up the engine the oil is burned off, this is a common problem, and there is a couple of things you can do to help the problem with out taking the engine apart and replacing the seals, try this first at your next oil change add some Restore to the engine oil it will soften the seals and give them a little more life, if this does not cure the problem after a few 100 miles then you will need to have the seals replaced, and this is a costly repair, but you could just live with the smoke it wont hurt any thing just keep an eye on the oil.

My 2006 Town Car is leaking a small amount of oil. Garage has checked and replaced oil plug and tightened oil filter but I am still noticing small 1/2 dollar bill size leak on garage floor. Any ideas? Cost...


Check for stains in the valve cover gasket on the side of the oil filter, and in the engine block right above the filter. There is not much that can leak on that side, other than filter itself, and you already checked it. You HAVE to take the car to dealer for warranty inpection, and repair. The issue not only has to be covered by warranty, but by not doing so in time, it might void the warranty, for being careless about it.

Oil leak, between and forward of the axel line


If the problem started right out of the blue, it might be wise to check the oil filter. Some times when turning the filter on a small leak in the canister can happen. Where did the oil land on the cardboard?
