That is the valve cover gasket not the manifold gasket, oil doesn't flow noise the manifold. Before you replace any parts have the engine pressure washed top and bottom, then after it is clean drive it for about 20 miles and then locate the actual leaking area.

SOURCE: fuel loss on kia sportage 2002..

I had exactly the same problem. The problem was with the fuel line clamps directly under the air plenum on the right side of the engine, right above the fuel injectors. The solution is to replace the factory spring clamps with proper hose clamps - a buck each. The real problem is that to get at the inside clamp, you have to remove the air plenum. It took me about 90 minutes to get it off and the same to reassemble. Not all that difficult, just very time consuming.

SOURCE: oil leak on manifold passenger side - v6 4motion

Get a can of Gunk and clean the engine according to the directions there (please do read them), with attention to the area around where the oil leak is.  Once you get the motor squeaky clean, you will be able to trace back to where the oil is coming from.  It may be running down the underside of a hose so you will need to look carefully.  You can do all this in the driveway.  You will probably have to let the engine get to operating temp before it will start leaking.

SOURCE: range rover 4.6 v8 loosing oil but no oil leak?

Hi if you park your car on a level surface do you have any patches on the floor?
If you do then it would point to Front or rear main seal. However it is a very common fault on 4.0l and especialy 4.6l to crack piston rings. The sumptoms are high oil useage and mostly no trace of oil leak and normaly no signs of smoking either.
Thanks Rob.

SOURCE: 2002 pontiac grand prix is over heating

This car requires to bleed the air from the sistem, look for a screw at the top of the outlet housing (the top radiator hose).

Also check if the radiator fan is turning on, it should be no later than past the center on the needle gauge .

Im finding oil under my car its not my oil pan


it could be a valve cover gasket leaking and running down. a head gasket leaking, or a seal that is to keep oil in the engine and not leak out. you will have to take a close look for oil leaks on the engine, maybe even have the engine shampooed then drive and check for leaks.

1999 Kia sportage loosing power under moderate acceleration.


It sounds like a head gasket issue. Do a compression check to see if all cylinders are within specs. If you find there is an issue, decide if it is worth the repair cost. If you choose to repair it you will also want to check for an exhaust leak close to the engine such as flex pipe and also back pressure from a plugged converter. Otherwise you could end up blowing the head gasket again.
