There is a hose located under the engine on the left side if you looking at it out of the car. the hose may be broken or busted easily and cheaply fixed. or the oil header gaket is worn or even gone again easily and cheaply fixed.

hey matt in order to help you better I need for you to do a couple of things here///// going by what you have been told I need these answers (a) the size motor you have in the truck? (2) can you take out each spark plug and see if any have motor oil on them and which one's? this is very important you must write the cylinder #'s down on each plug you find wet with oil/ or extremely coated in black or white soot/ashes the sequence of the plugs is left side of engine as you are looking at it from standing in front of the truck O.K. if it's and 8cylinder it will be left side 1 2 3 4 //// right side 5 6 7 8 this will be the 4.6/or 5.4 motors you must tell me which one? and if it's turbocharged? if it's the 6 cylinder it will be Left side 1 2 3//// right side 4 5 6 so this is very important //// and how much mileage is on the truck///on the 4.6/5.4 motors if you find oil on any of these plugs #'s 1/4-----5/8 the intake manifold gaskets could be leaking the oil if you find other cylinders other than these we could have (a) leaking valve cover gaskets ////look for oil running down the side of the head and are you smelling burning oil? if yes we found part of the problem---if no while the truck is warm and running do you smell burning oil in the exhaust and is it smoking If no that's good if yes there could be real problems here but if the exhaust just smells very rich with no oil smell or smoking that is just the oxygen sensor code for the 1st. sensor in the front not so bad it just went maybe from usage remember this is an old truck now so some things are going to fail on a 15 year old truck(released in the fall of 2000 maybe your door sticker will tell the month) we just have to find out exactly what's going on I don't want to shoot from the hip here and take guesses of what this could be I will be able to tell you a lot but I need to know anything else you can tell me remember I'm not there at the truck so there are things you must be able to tell me or anybody else here who is trying to help you and as you can see I'm trying instead of not answering because you are lacking specific information so a little bit more info from what I have asked you to do will help a lot I know you sound desperate and also you don't want to spend a lot of money here so I'll do the best I can for right now if there is smoking oil burning coming from the exhaust this could be your valve seals on the top of the valves in the cylinder heads / or your rings it depends how much mileage is on the motor if it's the valve seals there is a way to fix it but I don't think that your a mechanic and are lacking the proper tools for this so when you post back please be as specific as possible and have done the checks asked and we'll take it from there these are simple things to do no $$$$$ spent just a little investigation time to get a better Idea O.K. and in your post say hey! Stephen it's matt & I'll get to you as fast as I can and just so you know I've been a mechanic for 40 years and have taxi fleet experience with ford motors 4.6/5.4 and all others so the right person found you we just need a little extra information I'm doing suspension work on a town car and will get to you just be patient I have a little bit of running around to do to for 2005 crown Victoria police car so I'll get you later on or when you can post back don't worry if it takes you a few days I'll see the hey! Stephen in the post O.K. just take your time and write down everything!

Power steering failure on a 2004 mitsubishi endeavor.hard to turn wheel,is there a belt or other fixable way, owner manual says to bring it into the shop....


1st make a quick check, check fluid level on the pump,make sure the pump is not leaking fluid. check the belt make sure it has no cracks,make sure the belt is not slipping, it shoud not have any oil on it,should be tight. are the pulleys making noise,when the engine is running,does it make more noise when you try to turn. the belt could have stretched. if you jack the front end of your truck, turn engine on and turn power steering left and right with out any problem. if the pump is leaking very little, the lines could have air in them, and the leak would have to be eliminated before getting corrected. and there is the possibility of a bad pump. good luck!

I do not know where to put steering oil in the hood of mu 2006 malibu v6 3.5


This should be located on the passeger side of the engine compartment, follow the serpentine belt to the pully, it should be near the top toward the rear, you will see the filler cap, be carfull not to over fill.

Sounds like the timing belt may have broke. You can check by opening the oil cap on the valve cover and watching the valves while someone cranks the engine. If the valves do not move, your timing belt has snapped. Please let us know if this is not the cause or if you would like instructions for replacing the belt.

I need to replace the water pump and timing belt in a 1990 Celica GTS but I need to transport the car 90 miles before doing it. I don't think the pump is too far gone but I don't want to lose the engine,...


water pumps usually only leak after shut down but no guarantees, you may also want to change oil pump o ring seal. It's right next to water pump, they get old and leak too.Oil pump o-riing and shaft seal very inexpensive from dealer,

Why would my '04 Sentra with 26,000mi need new head gaskets?


I think they are trying to take you for a lot of money,A head gasket has nothing to do with the steering,Take it to a tire place and ask for an alignment.This will fix the pulling to the right.
