Question about Cars & Trucks
My 1993 chevy camaro 3.4 v6 is leaking oil out of the distributor hole,but my car is distributorless. it has coil packs and wires. how do u fix that leak?
Wow really , what are you talking about , the emission problem is only that goto autozone the code does not go away when the light comes on , find the code from them and then come back if need be and post , the autozone person will tell you what may be wrong with it ,most of the time the ck enging lighs come on is a 02 sensor , but not all the time and most emissions problems are a simple fix so don.t get scamed , the worst is the cat , so good luck

The distributor shaft is worn, replace the distributor.

SOURCE: there is a coolant leak
Since you used a question mark after "engine oil", I assume that you're not too sure where the coolant is going. While it's certainly possible for the coolant to end up in your oil, you should be able to see byproducts of combustion in your coolant (a very dirty coolant) if the head gasket is leaking. It could also force coolant out of your overflow as you drive, but not while you are sitting idle, making it hard to actually see if this happening to your coolant. Check your coolant for signs of this "blow-by". If your engine is losing power, you might want to do a cylinder balance check.

A flashing check engine light is a critical indicator. That usually means that something went wrong that will damage the emission control system... and that is usually an ignition issue. First off, the OEM plug your car calls for is an NGK irridium... NOT BOSCH and not anything with more than 1 prong. Those NGKs are like 2 bucks and they are the proper plug. Make sure you have these plugs and make sure they are gapped to .028. Next, my suggestion is put all the new stuff on again. Drive it to autozone and have them delete all the codes. Drive it around until the check engine light comes on again, then immediately go back and read the codes. The ECU is smart enough to know which cylinder is misfiring. On these cars, I think they have three banks of two... meaning one "coil" inside the coil pack operates two of the cylinders. So if you get multiple misfires, it's the coil. If you get one misfire it's probably an individual plug wire or plug. Good luck.
