Are you sure it is a hole in the oil pan? Is this a steel pan or aluminum? If there is oil all over uder the hood I would suspect a front seal or a pan gasket, then the belts or fan can blow it around. I would first give it a good wash, top and bottom so you can pin point where it is coming from. If it is a hole in the pan I have seen a few temperary repairs that seemed to work for a while. You would need to drain your oil, then clean the area very well with brake clean and a wire brush, make sure you have it good and dry. Then you can use J B weld (a two part glue) and smear over the area. I have seen some people use seal-all and a peace of cloth. Some people have used a screw and spun it up into the hole with a little silicone, but the best way would be to remove it and get one from a auto wrecker or take it to a shop to get it welded! Hope this helps , good luck!

How long is a piece of string ? without a good look under the bonnet i couldnt say but make sure the engine breather is clean and not clogged as this would cause a build up of back pressure which will cause the oil top leak from everywhere possible

I have an oil pan lead in my 2006 dts, how to fix?


I assume you mean an oil pan LEAK. If so either the pan has a hole in it or the gasket is leaking. Either way the pan will have to be removed to repair the hole of replace the gasket. If it is the gasket that is leaking try tightening the oil pan bolts to 10 ft/lbs of torque.

My 01 impala has got transmission fluid everywhere under my hood whats wrong and how much are we talking to fix it


Well leaks are not that expensive at all. But i would say go under your car and wipe all tthe fluid and put a cardboard under the transmission to locate the leak source than you can find out if its from the drain plug or from the oil pan. Good luck

I hit a big rock under my car and now it is leaking fluid up front how much would it cost me to fix the hole that the rock has caused


If the oil pan has the hole in it a new oil pan with gasket will cost you around $120. http://www.racepages.com/products/?Ntt=Ford+Taurus+Oil+Pan&N=4294963856 However you can probably just remove the old pan and have it repaired. Any welding shop can repair a hole in your pan and may be able to repair it on the engine without removing it if the hole is tiny. You will still need to buy a new gasket if you have to remove the pan, so if you can get it repaired for less than $90 you will be money ahead. You may also be able to find a used oil pan at your local auto salvage yard.

Oil leak


If you did not have a leak there before you had the work done and you do now, the shop needs to correct the problem. There is no reason why you should need to repair the repair. If they don't see if your dmv has a repair complaint division,,,many states do. As far as a new pan goes, have someone explain what exactly happened to your not leaking pan that warrants a replacement now. (I'd love to hear that answer!) Have another shop take a look and save receipts you will need to present them if you take this further!
good luck

Smoking and oil spitting out from under the hood


First of all check the cap and the dipstick. If they are intact then you need to degrease the engine and fill with oil. Then look while the engine irunning where the oil is leaking from before you know what is wrong. I hope this helps.

Very bad oil leak


Look under the car and see if the drain plug is screwed tight into the oil pan or if something has made a hole in the oil pan.
Do the bolts holding the oil pan to the block appear to be tight?
Open the hood, reach down behind the motor on the passenger side and see if you can tighten the oil filter.It should be as tight as you can possibly get it with your hand.
