Do you mean the oil cap? it sounds that is where oil leaked out, clean the spark plug wires on both ends specially at distributor or coils, good luck

SOURCE: rattling from under the hood

I would start by splitting up the drive train to determine if it is accessory, engine or transmission related.
There are a number of things that can cause a problem like this.
1) Is the noise louder in drive or reverse.
2) I would start with heat-shields because of your "clank" description. Exhaust manifold, catalytic converter shields and any other you can find under hood or under body.
3) If all is good, check engine and transmission mounts. Make certain none have collapsed, cracked or broken.
4) If all good, remove all accessory drive belts and start engine to see if noise goes away.
That's a lot to start with, so let me know what you find and we will go from there.
Regards.

SOURCE: i started the car after an oil change and oil was

When you remove the timing cover you will see that the seals for the front balancer is no longer in the block, it has popped out and is spinning around with the front balacer shaft.
There is a huge opening where the seal should be and oil comes out rapidly.
The timing belt should be replaced because the oil will cause it to break before it should

SOURCE: Oil leaks

you have to closely inspect the motor and the gaskets, the intake gasket often leeks oil, as does a head gasket, if you cant find anything on the lower end of the motor neaqr the pans, that would be the things i looked into next

SOURCE: Drain pan damaged, oil leaking from oil filter and

may want to get a second opinion from a mechanic you trust. the oil pan being damaged would mean it is cracked because it is made of aluminum on the 3.1 and the3.4 liter engines.drain plug damaged could just be rounded off in which case Wal-mart will not fool with. oil filter leak could be smply residue from a previous oil change. again I suggest a second opinion

This could be as simple as replacing the fuel filter, when last time had service? Not oil change, slot of times if you don't make sure on oil change , places will only replace oil filter. I would change fuel filter and possibly air filter. Let me know, and bynthe way, fuel filter is cheap, there under 15 bucks most likely at napa, schucks , etc... Dealer a lot more $$ let me know, glad to help more if that does not solve issue, mike

Car won't start


Check the fuse/relay panel inside car on drivers side and under the hood for a blown fuse or bad relay. With the key turned to the on position listen for the fuel pump to come on. Use an inline spark tester to check for fire from the coil to the spark plug wires. If you have not serviced the car in quite a while.then change the plugs and check the air filter,oil,antifreeze in car. Hope this will help.

I am seeing small drops of oil under my car. I had the oil changed and they replaced the small gasket where the oil filter goes but does not help. Also i can smell the oil from time to time. Would that...


Oil can leak of anywhere under car. You need to look at everything to determine where oil is coming from. Could be valve cover gasket, could be a seal, could be oil pan gasket, could be loose oil filter, etc. You have to look for area with wet looking oil, and start with that.

I would like to change the oil (not just add oil) for my 93 Mercury Tracer. How do I do this myself?


to be honest most shops charge cost for an oil change it is a loss leader they eat the labour in hopes of other problems they find and hopefully they get to fix it they will point out the problems with the hopes of future business

check out the prices at local parts store for filter and fluid cost then remember the old oil should be disposed of legaly meaning a disposal fee and a trip to drop off station then theres the tools and the time required the mess and the gooey greasy mess thet will folow

trust me even my self as a mechanic take my car to the garage for an oil change

but if you have your heart set on doing it your self
buy a chilton book from local parts store they will list alll steps snd even show pictures the help you

well eithor way good luck and enjoy the experience and the whisdom

Change the oil on a 2005 Mercury Montego


Go to a automotive store and tell them you have a 2005 Mercury Montego and what engine it has if there is more then one model and get an oil filter and the oil. Put the car up on ramps and secure it making sure it won't roll back or fall while you are under it. get under the engine and look for the oil pan which should have a bolt in the bottom of it where you can drain the oil. Drain the oil in a proper container and then put the drain plug back in the pan. Then find the oil filter and unscrew it and remove it.. It could be full of oil so watch out and make sure the pan is underneath the filter. Wipe the base where the oil filter screws on and make sure the gasket from the old filter is not still on the engine. Get your new filter and take your finger and put it in one of your new containers of new oil and spread that on the gasket of the new filter. Screw on the filter until the gasket touches the base and then turn only a little more then a 1/4 to 1/2 turn tops. Do not over tighten the filter. Find out what oil the vehicle needs (probably 5-30) and look for the oil cap on a valve cover under the hood. It probably takes 5 quarts but check for sure in your manual or ask when you are at the automotive store. Put the oil in and put the filler cap back on. Now go start the vehicle and make sure you have oil pressure by either the oil pressure guage showing pressure or the oil pressure idiot light goes off and while running check under the car for any signs of leaks. If no leaks then back the car off the ramps and shut the car off on a level surface. Let it sit 10 minutes and check for leaks underneath the car and check the oil dipstick to make sure the proper level of oil is in the engine. Then you are set.

Always check your air filter when changing oil to make sure it is clean as that helps your engine run better and you save gas in the process. Good luck

It is also best to change oil when your engine is warmed up as well.

Oil Leak


Take the car to a car wash and power wash the engine. Do this ONLY with a cold engine. And be prepared to have problems with it starting as water get's into the electrical components. Take some WD-40 with you to spray inside distributor caps, on spark wiring, etc. to get the engine running again.

Then check the engine weekly to see where the oil is coming from.
