My friends 2000 plymoth neon leaks oil...bad

It looks like it leaks from the front of the engine any ideas?

The most common oil leak is the front cranshaft seal, as for the 3rd brake light replace the bulb(s)

I think the part is called the oil pressure plug or something like that, it leaks at the front of the car really badly right? ... it happened on my '95 neon and its really cheap to fix at the shop... or get the haynes manual it shows how to change it...

The back end of my 2000 dodge neon slides whenever I go over a bump. What is causing this?


rear shock bad (or struts if you have these) see if you push down on the back of the vehicle, like on the trunk lid, if it seems bouncy. Note if your shocks or struts have leaked oil.

Oil is leaking bad and oil pan gasket has been replaced what else could be leaking really bad like 2 quarts in 50 miles e-mail jimmybumgarner@rocketmail.com


is the leak visually on the ground, then it seems like you could get under car and wipe a few things and see what leaks, thats a big leak, car would be leaving a smoke screen behind you from getting all over exhaust system. I would have to say, REAR MAIN SEAL BETWEEN MOTOR AND TRANS, OIL FILTER NOT TIGHT, Is oil all over the timing belt? front gasket/seal failure, Oil sending unit, is the light on or pressure gauge work?

Oil leak under driver side front


First thing i would do is degrease the whole engine, with oil leaks there hard to detect when the engine is very dirty, after you clean the engine and its free of all oil take it for a short drive when you get back home inspect the whole engine on the driver side and see where the fresh oil is coming from remember oil leaks downward and blows rearward when your driving so a leak on the valve cover in the front of the engine could eventually look like an oil pan leak after its been leaking for awhile if you still cant detect where the oil is coming from go to an autoparts store and ask them for detection dye, its a dye that you add to you engine oil and its used to detect leaks use a black light and then you can be very sure where the oil is coming from.

Sounds like the transmission cooler tank with in the radiator has gone bad, the transmission lines can go on either way, does not matter, replace radiator and have cooling system flush and have a transmission flush also done.

2004 dodge neon and white smoke


You probably have a bad head gasket.
To verify this see if the coolant is milky or if there is oil in the coolant reservoir. If so you need a new head gasket . If not you have an oil leak into the combustion chamber.

Approx cost for head gasket w/head cut approx $1500 to$ 2000.

If it turns out to be an oil leak into combustion chamber I really can't project . Need to know whats leaking and why.
Good luck

The oil light in my 2003 Neon keeps coming on.


it is most definitely the oil pressure sender!

standing in front of your car, look behind your engine from above, below the head and screwed into the block on the right side is the sensor.
