I have several codes in my 99 Chevy S-10, po171, po174, po303, p1509. could there bo a common problem/


They are related mostly. All have to do with air intake. 170 codes are both sides running lean, to much air. 303 is a #3 misfire, could be a vacuum leak around the plenum. you replaced the spider. Could be the injector not seated right(smell for gas in the oil/dipstick), also could be a bad wire or spark plug. 1509 is an electrical problem with the idle air control motor. Check the plug for corrosion. Also wires usually break a round the plug. This also could be the problems with too much air.

Sounds like the oil is blowing back onto the headers and heat shield when you drive. Then the oil heats up and smokes. Be careful. It can catch fire.

Oil leak from a kind of solanoid coming out of the engine


That part that is leaking sounds like the oil pressure sending unit. It is a very common part that we replace on all Nissan vehicles.

Where you're describing sounds like it's leaking from the oil pan. If the vehicle has high mileage, you will probably want to look into replacing the oil pan gasket. If this doesn't sound right, it could be something to do with the oil pump. There isn't a lot of electrical components in that area of the engine. The oil pump or oil sensing unit would be my guess.

HEADER LEAK


Not necessarily.Your spark plugs are located in the top of the motor so the exhaust heat from the leak could not effect them..So no the leak will not cause miss.Something you can check is by looking in the plug wire holes down at the spark plugs and see if theres any moisture in the holes an oil leak in the holes.This is usually the number one thing that makes these cars miss other than just needs a tune up.It is the 5.4L or 4.6L right.If not an it is a 302 or 5.0L it is very possible that the header gasket is the problem.And remember if you fix the gasket you'll need to replace the plug wire that the leaky header gasket was blowing on....

Oil leaking from some sort of plug above the oil filter


If the leak is coming directly from above the oil filter it is more than likely the oil pressure switch is leaking. The seal around the Oil pressure switch could have gone bad and now it is leaking.

The oil pressure switch is located right above the the oil filter and above the cooling system cross pipe.
