It possibly be, damage head gasket. don't take changes on this. this need be replace at once. and all parts of the engine must be check.
the whole performance of the engine is at stake.

check the colour of engine oil on the dip stick / check the inside of the engine oil lid, if its milky white then see mechanic to overhaul your engine.

A ticking sound on a 06 ford f150 super crew 5.4L


Ticking sound could be coming from a Coil-on-Plug, or a pcv valve, or (hope it's not) a valve lifter which could be sticking. Sticking lifter noise often disappears when rpm's change, or the noise comes & goes. try changing the motor oil & filter right after adding an Engine-Flush Treatment to the motor oil, running the engine for 10 minutes at idle with treatment added to the oil, then draining the oil & changing filter while oil is still very hot. That last part is very important, so be careful not to burn your hands - be careful. -- The sticking lifter is a likely cause if motor oil has not been changed at frequent intervals in the past (every 3-4K miles) -- dirty oil causes sticking lifters.

Leaking ****** fluid, seems to be a hole in bottom, looks like factory hole, have I lost a plug?


Bottom of what & what kind of fluid? If it's greenish/yellowish like antifreeze - you may have lost the drain-plug at the bottom of your radiator. If it's oil - you've lost your oil pan drain-plug. If it looks like water - it may be condensation from your A/C & not actually a leak at all.

2003 escape turned off while driving had no water it was dripping oil and won't turn on


I have no idea what kind of advice you would like

You could have checked the coolant in the morning
as well as the oil & still while driving you lost a head
gasket & it went into failsafe & shut off

When you say dripping oil, I don't get a good
feeling & your not saying where it is or what
you are doing with your suv.


I wouldn't be supprised if you find out
the motor is ruined,hope not

Oil leak on motor of a 2003 sunfire 2.2 engine on the front end of motor alternator is covered in oil


Hi,

Let's start by telling you how to diagnose the problem.

Most oil leaks are easily located and repaired by visually finding the leak and replacing or repairing the necessary parts. On some occasions a fluid leak may be difficult to locate or repair. The following procedure may help in locating and repairing most leaks.

Finding the Leak

? Identify the fluid, determine whether it is engine oil, automatic transmission fluid, power steering fluid, etc.
? At what location or point is the fluid leaking from? After running the vehicle at normal operating temperature, park the vehicle over a large sheet of paper, After a few minutes, you should be able to ascertain the approximate location of the leak by the drippings on the paper.
? Visually check around the suspected component. Check around all gasket mating surfaces and hoses for leaks. If your car provides engine oil cooling, check the oil lines leading to the radiator. A mirror is useful for finding leaks in areas that are hard to reach. If the leak still cannot be found, it may be necessary to clean the suspected area with a degreaser, steam or spray solvent. Most car washes provide this service or make it possible for you to do it yourself. Clean the area well, then dry the area. Operate the vehicle for several miles at normal operating temperatures and varying speeds. After operating the vehicle , visually check the suspected component. If you still cannot locate the leak, try using the power method.


The Powder Method

? Clean the suspected area.
? Apply an aerosol-type powder, e.g., face powder, to the suspected area.
? Operate the car under normal operating conditions.
? Visually inspect the suspected component. You should be able to trace the leak path over the white powder surface to the source.


Good luck and all the best

I have a 95 blazer thats leakin tan like oil can u tell me whats that problem its leakin on drive side


Hi :) Tan colour oil is water and oil mixed together or greenish tan is antifreeze and oil That sounds like a head gasket leak coming from the left bank of the motor.Check the dip stick it might be showing up in the oil too.Head gaskets are around $60.00 plus labour as long as the head is not warped or cracked.

How do I tell the transmission dipstick from the oil dipstick? There is a yellow one and black one but I cant tell which one is which.


Come on now
Surely you can see a dip stick entering
either the engine or transaxle

Pull either one out

Oil is sort of black
Trans Fluid sort of red

Only a guess but the motor oil will be yellow

My 04 neon has a water leak which fills the spare tire hole in the trunk and the floor in the back seat?


Open the trunk and apply baby powder to the gasket,gently close the trunk lid with key in unlocked position.Open the trunk and look for bald spots in the trunk/hatch lid.Duplicate yje area on the gasket and shim the gasket with a piece of 3 M caulk strip. slam the lid an repeat the powder test until yo see no gaps. That should do it unless the gasket is TORN.

Check your coolant level. If it is low and there is no obvious signs of a leak do a compression check on the engine (possible blown head gasket) or the fan / thermostat is not working properly.
