What would leak oil onto the starter


the oil leak could be a bad valve cover gasket needing replacement, a head gasket leaking oil, a leaking intake gasket and oil running down along the engine block and dripping. it could be an oil pressure switch that is leaking. it is near the starter while driving or engine running can spray oil onto the starter. unless the oil leak is very bad and has been leaking a long time onto the starter will not cause it to act like a dead battery even then not likely. have a starter draw test down to check condition of the starter.

I have a 1984 dodge ramcharger. When I get in my truck in the morning the truck acts fine but after I drive and the engine heats up the oil pressure drops and I get a knock in the crank case. I can't...


could be a number of things from a bad oil pump, to your main bearings getting worn out. i would try putting a thicker oil in it and see if it takes care of the problem

It heats up it dies after 30 min. will not restart until you release pressure and wait for 30 min. had this problem on older with carb. we used to call vapor lock it is acting same but this is fuel...


First pull crank sensor out and check for cracks,if you see any cracks replace the sensor.If any oil gets inside the sensor it causes a short and loses its signal then after the oil drains back out of the sensor it will start.

What will happen if thermostat will be removed and


Good question: The thermostate acts as a valve (of sorts) allowing the engine to stay at a relative constant temp. If run without an engine will typically run too cool (this is not good as engines are designed to run at specific heats for best efficiency and motor oil too is designed to run a a designed heat. An engine can go the other way too and over heat. As mentioned the thermostate acts like a valve controling the flow of coolant thru the block and radiator. The run thru block is a long one and it will certainly pick-up heat however running without may cause the coolant to run too quickly thru the radiator so little heat will be lost. (imagine a lit candle run your finger thru it quickly and no heat exchange as it you will not burn your finger, slower you'll get the heat from the candle and burn your finger. In short use a thermostate, your engine was trully engineered to have one.

I hope this expalins it for you,

Blue smoke


Chances are if you are blowing blue smoke, you are burning oil.  Another cause of blue tint smoke is you are burning to much fuel and not enough air.  If the engine does not act erratic or acts like it is flooding out, then I would say you are burning oil.  The most common problem found with burning oil is either worn piston rings, bad valve seats/seals.  If the engine has high mileage, I would recommend any type of oil treatment.  Change your oil, filter included, use some form of engine treatment, run it for a few hundred miles, and rechange your oil and filter again.  If your engine has over 100,000 miles, I would highly recommend using an oil that is made for high mileage engines.  As this oil has additives that will help ease the aging engine.  If this doesn't work for you, I would say you need to have the rings and valve seals replaced.  You can do this yourself with a little knowledge of engines and pick yourself up a Haynes Manual at your local auto parts store if you do not already have one.  Hope this helps.  Feel free to comment if you need more assistance.  Please don't forget to rate.  Thanks!
