Check the oil pan gasket, that may be where it's leaking from.

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: Motor Oil leaks from 1999 Honda Civic EX

make sure they are tight
could be time for head gaskets
make sure the old gasket from the old filter came off the block sometimes they come off old filter and stick this causes a leak due to improper seal.

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.

It is important too identify the following:
1) The source of the exhaust leak
2) The source of the oil leak.
The exhaust leak could turn out to be a bad exhaust gasket, a cracked or loose exhaust manifold, a cracked cylinder head or bad gasket, or related parts. The oil leak could turn out to be the valve cover gasket. A dried out valve cover gasket can cause oil to sit on the spark plugs and have oil leaks. Be sure not to over-fill the oil. A machine shop can find cracks in cylinder heads. If these problems turn out to be ok (and one of those stethoscopes may be helpful) then you could procede to check fuel delivery. (there will be pressure in the lines) A lot of times connectors get corroded. I noticed on this model the sensor for the engine cooling mounted near the thermostat is very sensitive to variation. Same for the air sensors if left loose.

How do you change a manifold gasket on a 2002 kia sportage


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.

When I removed #4 sparkplug there is oil on sparkplug hole on a 2000 Kia sportage


If oil is on the spark plug tip then it could be from worn valve stems or from worn piston rings. When you accelerate away from the traffic lights and the engine blows a lot of greyish smoke then this is a sign of worn parts.
If the oil is leaking into the spark plug hole, then it could be leaking from the tappet cover, either the tappet cover bolts are loose or the tappet cover gasket is faulty.

2000 Sportage: where is the spark plugs located on a 2000 Kia Sp...


They are under the black plastic cover that is in the middle of your valve cover gasket. Remove the intake hose from the aluminum intake plenum on top of the valve cover and the silencer box against the firewall. Remove all the connectors from the sensors which should be 2 on the plenum and the 2 large vacuum hoses on the plenum. Then remove the 3 12mm bolts from the plenum at the throttle body and remove the plenum. You can reuse the throttle body gasket at the plenum so don't destroy it. All the other bolts are 10mm and use a screwdriver to loosen the clamps on the hose. The sensors have clips that you need to remove with a small screwdriver, then disconnect them. Remove the bolts on the cover and the cover. Then remove the bolts holding the coil packs down. Do one plug at a time. 2 of them are connected to the 2 plug wires and 2 are underneath the 2 coil packs. The connectors on the coil packs are fragile so remove them carefully. Reverse the steps to reinstall the plenum, etc.

What is the timing marks for a 2000 kia sportage?


the timing marks are as follows... if you are not able to see the picture the intake cam gear will line up with the mating mark on the rear cover .... the "I" needs to be straight up... the exhaust cam the E needs to be straight up. the crankshaft mark is a nothch in the rear of the crank gear which needs to line up with a pointer on the front of the aluminum oil pump housing. the keyway on the crank needs to be vertical. the marks on the rear cover are dimples in the cover. this is an interferance engine DO NOT ROTATE CRANK OR CAMS WITH BELT OFF. IF YOU HAVE BROKEN THE TIMING BELT DAMAGE TO ENGINE HAS ALREADY OCCURED AND YOU WILL NEED A VALVE JOB!!!! there is no exception on this engine. if you have tried to crank it over and the belt is broken the head is no good!
