sounds like you engine cant vent so its using the weakest point the dipstick, check your engines breathing system and the pcv valve it might be blocked, find it connected to the air filter housing with a hose , it should rattle when you shake it if not replace it.

Bad oil leak in 2001 ot cruiser

A couple of leaks can be fairly large. An Oil Pan leak where you will see oil seeping down the sides of the pan and dripping directly below. The other is a Rear Main Bearing Seal leak and the oil will be coming from where the engine meets the transmission.

My car has an oil leak somewhere around the middle of the engine on the passenger side and its not the oil pump.When sitting still it does not leak much but when hot and running it almost seems to pour...

You really just have to get in there with a rag and clean it up. If you dont see the leak right away clean everything that looks wet and look the next day to see where it is wet again. Then you will be able to see where the leak is coming. Did you pay for this solution or is it free?? just wondering fix ya has a new site so i dont know how it works yet. Let me know. Thanks

1996 Honda Accord EX Manual trans. Where is oil level plug. what kind of oil?

Hi there,

All Honda manual transaxles use the Honda Manual Transmission Fluid (MTF) as the original factory fill. This oil is similar to a 10W-30 or 10W-40 viscosity engine oil, and this oil can be substituted temporarily. However, the manufacturer recommends the use of their MTF when changing the fluid.

Level Check

The transaxle fluid should be changed every 90,000 miles (144,000 km) or 6 years under normal driving conditions. In severe driving conditions the fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles (48,000 km) or every 2 years, whichever occurs first.
Make sure the vehicle is on a level surface. If the vehicle is raised, make sure the vehicle is safely supported and level

NOTE: Do not confuse the drain plug with the fill plug.
The fill plug is in the mid section of the transaxle. The drain plug is near the bottom of the transaxle.
  1. The oil level is checked by removing the oil fill plug on the side of the transaxle. The transaxle fluid should just meet the lower threads of the transaxle fill hole.
  2. Remove the oil level check bolt from the side of the transaxle. If oil runs out, or if oil can be felt near the threaded fill hole opening, reinstall and retighten the bolt to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).
  3. If the level needs to be topped off, pour oil in slowly until it begins to run out then, install and tighten the filler bolt to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).

While driving oil started shooting out were the oil filter meets the housing. and i notice it was loose. i bought a new filter and made sure the old gasket was not there and that the threads were fine. i...

may need to change the oil pump. although i would try tightening it on with a filter wrench to make sure the threads arent stretched. If it still leaks, th threads have stretched or something towards the top of the pump and allows the filter to come loose.

1.mazda 5 rear shocks leaking + new replacements lasting 3-4 months! 2.mazda 5 e/window controlsnot working properly!

What you doing with this vehicle driving over a mountain every day ?? if they keep leaking then remove them and drill a small hole about two and half centimetres from the top of the piston and then thread the hole and make a small bolt with a metal flat washer with a rubber one under that ,then refill shocker with oil and refit ,you may have to push the piston in to get the oil in though but not on every type ,anyway refit shockers ,then when vehicle statrs to bounce again just refill with oil in situ ,so you dont need to buy new ones all the time just refill them ,easy just like the good old cars 40 yrs ago .

Temperature light came on 2002 VW Passat wagon backing out of garage today, slight burning smell. Returned after 2 miles. Have experienced this smell on and off since oil & filter change several weeks...

You can see the coolant level by looking through the opaque round coolant reservoir. It should be just over the middle. There's a line indication proper level. Orange Dexcool meets the VW specification and is generally available. The rear coolant flange can warp and seep over time and leaks onto hot parts. That's probably why you smell it.
