Engine is making oil


An engine does not make oil, but it can spill the oil that should be inside. You could have an oil leak, which means that oil will be leaking from either the front or the rear oil seal. The front oil seal is just behind the crank pulley, the one that drives the fan / alternator belt. If oil is leaking from there, suspect the front seal.
If you have oil leaking from the bell housing, that the the bell shaped metal thingy between the engine and the gearbox. you can suspect the rear oil seal.
If you inspect the engine and see oil leaking from the oil pan under the engine, you have a leaking pan gasket. This can usually be solved by tightening the pan bolts, a whole lot of bolts underneath the engine.
Finally, and this is probably the worst, if you see oil around the breather pipe that goes from the valve cover on top of the engine to the gas intake system, you have leaking compression, that means either the valve stem seals are leaking or the compression rings are finished, and you will have to have the engine overhauled, or at the very least have the cylinder head overhauled.
If the rings are suspect, you will also have excessive smoke out of the exhaust when you drive, especially when you accelerate. Check the exhaust for signs of wet oil.

OIL LEAKAGE CAUSES


Where to begin? There are several things and areas that can leak oil or cause an oil leak. Super easy first, when changing the oil if it becomes overfilled it can seep from the seals, the dipstick, out the fill tube, through the gaskets, etc. This can be a permanent issue even if it only happened once or twice and the only repair is to replace the affected seals. Several other options for a variety of vehicles are as follows. Rear main, timing cover, crank seals, cam seals, valve covers, oil pan gasket or puncture, crank sensor, oil pressure gauge fittings, water pump mount (engine specific), head gasket, etc. Also transmission or transfer oil can push past bad seals or gaskets and bad transfer bearings can promote leakage in some models. The amount of oil leaked and location are key to identifying causes. If you are a "do it yourselfer" I recommend putting the vehicle up on ramps, wiping off excess oil with a cloth, then pressure washing (with degreaser for embedded road grime etc.) After the vehicle completely dries slide underneath with a very bright drop light and inspect thoroughly for drips or seepage. Always use proper safety precautions! If you cannot find the leak, start the engine and let it idle for a few minutes then shut it off, allow it to cool and re-inspect. There are several vacuum, gasket, valves, bent cam, and many other internal issues that can cause leaks as well. Hope you find this helpful, feel free to narrow it down for more focused help on this issue.

Peugeot 207 1.4, small oil leak from underneath, added engine stop leak, how long before it stops leak?


oil leaks from underneath can come from front crank shaft seal --rear crank shaft seal --oil filter--sump gasket---power steering ---leaking rocker cover gaskets ---leaking oil pressure switch.--transmission seals. I suggest that you have the engine professionally cleaned and then put it on a hoist while running to see where the oil is from

My toyota tazz 2006 model is leaking oil from underneath ,i went to the mechanics and they removed the samp and put new gasket seal still its leaking.Every 2 weeks i have to buy 5 litres of oil


If its still leaking from the pan gasket then replace the pan and also check if the PCV positive crank case valve is NOT blocked as there could be lot of pressure building up in the 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.

Leaking water from oil pan or behind oil pan


figure out what type/size engine you have, call a dealer and ask for service department. ask them whether that engine has freeze plugs on the back of the block underneath the flywheel or ring gear. if not you may have a head gasket or heater hose leak which is dripping down through the bell housing presenting itself as coming via the oil pan gasket. there should be no water whatsoever in the oil pan and if there is you need to look around for a replacement used engine.

Actully i think if there is leakage in head gasket oil should come out from it..is it rite?


if there is a leak in the valve cover oil would leak out . if there is a leak in head gasket could mix coolant and oil no leak out the mix would be in crank case, or pressure would build up in radiator whit no mix whatsoever. is this helping? if so please check the corner of this box if you need more info let me know exactly what the matter is i'll be glad to help.

Oil pan


you have to raise the car if you can go to a lifter, or the hard way is to use aligator jacks, lift it as high as you can, use jack stands for safety, go underneath the engine, ( be sure the car is safe to go underneath)

drain the oil by removing the oil plug in the pan,
remove all bolts surrounding the oil pan,
gently remove the oil pan and take note not to tear the old pan gasket.( If you already have a new gasket then its ok to damage it)
do the repair on the pan as you wish,
then do the reverse on installing.

if you will use the old gasket, may i suggest that you use silicone gasket to further seal the pan and prevent oil leakage.

tnx 4 using fixya,
