From your description, it sounds like the rear main seal. Has this leak gotten gradually worse over time? If yes, then that's what it sounds like, and it's a big job, you have to remove the engine.

    check out 'autozone', fill out the vehicle info, click on repair guides, then product how to info, then go to 'R', and click on rear main seal. The info provided is rather generic, but it will give u some idea as to what's involved. Good Luck!

I have a 2002 hyandai elantra Sls I have a bad oil leak on drivers side it's pooling up on transmission it is def motor oil and I know the head gasket is leaking but I don't think it would spray oil would...


I would say to you, first get some engine cleaner spray on that area of the engine and hose off. This will give you a much better idea of where oil is coming from. I think you may have a very bad valve cover gasket. When you drive the car the oil leakage will be more visible. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

05 malibu leaking oil from rear of engine


This may be from excessive pressure in the sump from blow-by from the compression process . It is from a blocked PCV valve that is not equalising that pressure. I have also known oil leaks to happen because the rear main bearing cap is leaking oil past the join around the bolts (loose) or no sealing compound used in assembling the rear main bearing.. I would look at the PCV valve as it is the cheapest test first.. Check that the oil is not coming from the front gear box seal or torque converter seal.

I just got value cover replaced the next day its coming from bottom


i assume you're talking about oil leak,right? and i really hate to assume,but this time i will. you may have a leaking oil pressure sending unit. if it's coming from under the engine,and the valve cover gasket has been replaced recently, if you have'nt hit anything with the car that may have caused damage to your engine,I would look for a bad oil sending unit leaking,or a leaking oil filter,or a leaking oil pan gasket. or a simple oil drain bolt loose. if this does'nt help you,please repost your question to fixya.com

I have a 1998 Saturn. The reservoir often leaks water/antifreeze and light comes on to indicate. I have had water pump as well as reservoir replaced. Doesn't leak everday but still leaks. WHat is this?...


you need to find that leak, is the leak visible? if its not from radiator or the reservoir, the only other place I could think you can lose water is the head gasket. It happens to high miles and hard driver. 100k miles would likely be a head gasket. Leaking head gasket will also cause the engine temperature to rise and run super hot. antifreeze will leak through the head gasket down to your oil pan mixing oil and water. Check your oil by pulling the dip stick and see if you have oil mix with water; it will have a slimy looking colors, oil is light color and it should never be black. if it black than change your oil and inspect it afterward when the car has been running for while. when engine really hot cause the heat to effect the starter not to engage or start or engine is too hot to run. repairing head gasket could run anywere from 500-800 bucks.

Could be just the OIL COOLER. VW IS CORRECT.
If the oil cooloer fails internely you will have a mix of coolant and oil. In the engine and in the Radiator,

But not to say the other guys were wrong...
