What could it be when i excellurated i heard a loud noise an oil started leaking under the van and smoking making loud nocking noise

Sounds like big end bearing gone and oil would probably be coming from gear box and engine seam and falling on exhaust its sounds like a pretty stuffed motor but everything is fixable depending on how much coin it coast and if its worth it cya Neil

My 2000 dodge neon was running hot on yesterday. So today while I was filling up the radiator with coolant I started to hear hear this loud noise from somewhere in the engine compartment, I immediately...

Check your oil dip stick and see if the oil is milk chocolate color or not. If it is, probably a blown head gasket. the oil is mixing with the coolent and may be leaking out the head area onto the ground. If you had the engine running and it backed out the overflow, it may be the thermostat stuck and the engine backed it out because it could not circulate the coolant and keep the engine cool. If the thermostat hasn't been changed recently, that should fix the problem.

It probably wasn't diesel in the oil unless someone put it there. Could be a piston.

Loud knocking noise comming from engine?

1995 Ford Windstar 3.8L Engine Knocking noise on top side of engine near center of Air Plenum. Engine was completely rebuilt 2 years ago (28,000 miles on Re-Built Engine/ 156,000mile on Van). Coolant level is SAT, Engine oil level is Sat. Van was driven 2800 miles since last oil/filter change. Engine started surging as van slowed down to make a stop then engine shut off. Restarted engine and heard knocking noise. Shut engine off immediately. The oil light flickers on dash with engine running. Do fuel injectors make tapping noises when degraded? Is it possible hydraulic lifter not able to leak down or does not fill with oil? Oil pressure issue with the dash light flickering? I can see if the engine has allot of miles on it, the intake and exhaust valves begin to leak-by how ever this not the issue. Where do you start to locate engine knock noise? How is oil pressure checked to see if pressure is too low? Any help where to start would be appreciated.

What is the best oil for a kia sophia 2000?

Castrol,is the best brand,and I believe it calls for 5w 30 weight motor oil,this is a must,for the oil to flow threw the small oil ports.A synthetic oil is a very good choice for long life of the engine.Napa auto parts has a napa brand synthetic oil that is very good,and is about 4.39 a quart,cheap price for synthetic.

2000kia sophia clutch slips

If it's slipping it's near the end of its life and you'll have to change it. Make sure to inspect the rear main seal - most of the time a clutch slips because of wear but a rear main seal leak will allow oil to leak onto the disc and it'll slip. In either case you'll need a new clutch but if the seal is leaking it'll ruin the new one too.
