Can the Oil Pressure Switch on a Kia Sorrento cause an oil leak?


Do you mean filler cap or the oil filter? An improperly seated O-ring on an oil filter is a common source of oil leaks, but these leaks are usually major and noticeable as soon as the engine is started. An oil pressure switch can also be a source of leaks, but a much slower leak. A leak from an oil filler cap would be slower still.

Excessive Oil leak on 1985 Chrysler Laser 2.2L (non-turbo). My 17 year old son purchased the car with little history. Noticed a small oil leak on driveway. Replaced the valve cover gasket and leak...


A plugged pcv system will cause excessive oil leaks. But it sounds like you have a massive leak. If the passenger side is leaking behind the timing cover there may be up to four seals that may leak.single cam motor will have one cam seal dual will have two cam seals. Crank seal and possible oil pump seal. Would recommend pressure washing motor, go to local parts store and get some engine dye. Then support car and let engine get warm. And try to pinpoint leak.

Oil leak between oil pan and transmission.


Try running some of that high-mileage engine oil next time you do an oil change (it helps to swell engine seals slightly). If the problem clears up or is reduced, then it's likely that the rear main oil seal is starting to leak a little. The rubber seals will harden up and shrink a little with age.
I would also powerwash the entire area clean, so that way any leak will be easier to monitor and pinpoint.

You could have either a vacuum line leak or an intake gasket leak. Often an intake gasket leak will also cause an oil consumption issue as the actual vacuum leak is at the bottom side of the intake and will result in not ony a misfire at idle but will pull engine oil into the intake causing a loss of engine oil. The other primary sources of leaks I find are broken plastic vacuum lines, usually on the passenger or rear side of the engine. The throttle plates on these do cause a loud hissing noise [normal] so it's often hard to pinpoint an actual vacuum leak unless the air cleaner is on which mutes some of the normal air noise.

Driving home from work I started to smell and see smoke in cab


If you have recently changed or had the oil changed I would suspect a bad filter or the old oil filter gasket still on the filter boss and a new filter with an additional gasket installed on top of the old gasket. Usually in a short time the old filter gasket will blow out causing a massive oil leak. To locate the leak fill the engine back to the full mark with oil and start it and look for the leak.

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.

Water leak


This may be a freeze plug at the back of the engine, have a pressure test run and have it put on a rack to ID the source of the leak.
