Severe oil leak


It could be a bad oil pressure sending unit, valve cover gasket, timing chain cover gasket or oil pan gasket. If there's white smoke coming out of the exhaust it could have a blown head gasket but it's not a common problem with that engine.

I HAVE 1997 FORD TAURUS, AND IT HAD AN OIL LEAK, HOW CAN I TELL IF IT IS THE OIL PAN OR A BLOWN HEAD GASKET?


the head gasket is on the engine higher than the oil pan so if the leak is not were the head meets the cylinder block and running down towards the bottom of the motor then the head gasket is not the problem.if the leak is only around the oil pan area and slightly above it then its probably the oil pan that is leaking.fluid leaks travel backwards or downwards not up.

I changed the oil sensor on my 1997 mercury villager van, and it is still leaking oil. The oil lite never has come on and I checked oil last night and it was one quart low. Could the gasket on the oil...


The oil is leaking from wherever you see oil on the engine. Sometimes there can be to much oil covering the engine and it needs to be degreased. A dye can also be added to the oil that will illuminate when a dye light is used to help track down a leak. If the oil pressure switch you removed wasn't wet with oil or leaking than it wasn't bad.

It could be anything from the valve cover gaskets, cam seals, front crank seal, oil pan gasket, rear main seal or head gaskets.

Hi I have a 1998 pontiac transport. i replaced the head gaskets and fired up. It starts everytime but then quits right away. Aby ideas????


Check the cam sensor plugin,and the crankshaft sensor plugin.If they are fine the cam sensor may be bad,but the ignition module can be bad also.was it running before the head job?If the computer does not sense oil pressure,it will not let the fuel pump run,so check that out as well.

My 1997 pontiac transport van will not start


CHECK FOR FUEL AND SPARK FIRST.
CHECK ALL THE CONNECTORS ON EVERYTHING, ESPECIALLY THE IGNITION MODULE CONNECTIONS. THE CRANK SENSOR OFF THE BACK OF THE ENGINE COMES UP ALONG THE FUEL LINES AND CONNECTS TO THE IGNITION MODULE.

Loosing coolant somewhere.


it is the head gasket. you're wise to change the oil right away but stop driving it before you do some real damage to the motor.
