SOURCE: how do i replace value cover gaskets on a 2001 cadillac deville

If you have your intake manifold over your valve covers you need to remove them. once they are off carefully disconnect as many hoses from the covers as you can and try to mark them so you can remember where they go. next you take your ratchet and remove all of the bolts from the valve cover. Take it off and get as much crud off of the surfaces that the gaskets seat onto as you can. next you take a tube of BLUE RTV and apply a thin bead to all of the surfaces that the gasket will seat into. Put gasket onto it's place on engine block, then affix the valve covers on top of that. Replace bolts and intake manifold if applicable and you are done. Note; follow instructions on the RTV tube or you will develop leaks all over the place.

SOURCE: OIl leak in 2001 Grand Cherokee Laredo

valve cover gasket is like $20 and a do it yourself job, just buy a manual like a chiltons from an auto parts store. if it was valve cover, the smoke would be coming from engine, not tailpipe.

rear seal is in between engine and tranny, this would cause oil to leak on ground, but not to burn

if smoke is coming from tailpipe, your piston rings might be going bad. that is an expensive repair, but switching to synthetic oil may give you several more years of life out of the piston rings, synthetic oil has a way of soaking into bad piston rings and temporarily making them like new again, unless they are already too far gone.

make sure they are tight
could be time for head gaskets
make sure the old gasket from the old filter came off the block sometimes they come off old filter and stick this causes a leak due to improper seal.

I added oil to my Cadillac and it drained onto the ground


Before adding any more oil, make sure that you have securly replaced and tightened the oil drain plug (which is located on your engine's oil pan, under your car).

2003 Taurus 24V DOHC, have engine oil covering oil pan. I thought is was the oil pan gasket, mechanic did not seem to think so. Put dye in and trying to find the leak source. Is there a common leak problem...


Oil leak can be attributed to several factors.
1. Gasket failure.
2. Uncontrolled Crank case pressure Failure.

RECOMENDATION:
Tighten both the valve cover and oil pan bolts.
Replace the Positive Crankcase Ventilation Valve and vacuum line.,

INFO: PCV
This is a valve causes a negative vacuum on the engine while its running, As to say if it had a leak in a valve cover it should not be leaking while its running, only when the engine it turned off.

Hope this tip guides you in the correct direction to solve this problem.

How do I change the oil gasket??


Are you talking about the oil pan gasket, valve train cover gasket? Id so on either one you must remove the old gasket an replace it. You can try tightening the bolts some to see if that stops the leak, but if not, the gasket should be replaced.

1994 northstar motor leaking oil from engine block, where could it be coming from


Most likely it is the rear main seal. It is the seal that surrounds the crank shaft as it extends out to the transmission. The rreplacement of this seal involves removing the transmission. You could also have oil leaking from the rear side of the oil pan or the rear of the valve covers. But in most cases you can see this leakage. Therefore it is most likely going to be that rear seal.
