Question about 1993 Toyota Paseo

Toyota Paseo leaking oil

My Paseo is leaking oil almost as fast as I put it in. When I fill the oil up I can smell my car burn oil until it is empty again. Also occasionally white smoke will come out my tail pipe when driving yet not that much. I have had to garages check it out and both have said they found no leaking or signs of leaking on the engine and believe it is coming out of the oil pan. Does that sound correct?

    Hey guys thanks for all the responses. Yes I do have a lot leaking on the ground (sorry for not including that originally). So does that mean it is most likely not the engine and just an oil pan issue? One guy who looked at it said he believed the drain plug was stripped yet his garage didnt do that type of work.

Do you have any Leaks on the Ground where you Park? If not, You really need to get that Motor Overhauled. Your Motor is Burning the oil Because ther Rings are Worn out in the Motor and the Motor is Detonating the Oil and Burning it. a Rebuild is the Only Solution.

    What kind of Garage does not Replace a Leaking Oil Plug? Would not hurt to Change it. Might be a Cheaper Fix! Cross your Fingers!

Hi darlage, Yes unfortunately that sounds correct, have you recently ran over something in the road or driven over a curb?. Have you had your oil changed recently. If you are lucky the drain plug or the filter is loose. Worst case is a hole in the oil pan. Either way you should not drive the vehicle until repaired, you could burn the engine up or actually set the car on fire, the oil on the exhaust could burst into flames. Let me know if this helps and if I can assist further. Please rate this solution. lone99star

    If it is just the plug you should get out fairly cheap, you could probably fix it yourself,  First take the plug out and take it to your local auto parts store, tell them you need a Self Tapping plug, these are common and they should have one. Let me know if you decide to tackle this on your own and I can give more detailed instructions.

I put oil in my car and it has been leaking but it does not come out under my car, I noticed that there is a lot of oil on the motor from the cap and it smokes smells like burning oil. what should I do


you should check and replace the pcv valve,if it gets plugged it can cause too much pressure in the crankcase and it will leak out at the weakest point which usually is the oil fill cap.the vapor from the fumes leaking out has oil in it and when it touches anything that is hot it burns off causing the smoke and smell.once the vapor is gone the smoke and smell will eventually go away,or you can wash the motor off.

If you had to add oil, more then likely there an oil leak could be a gasket or oil seal, where ever the leak is at it's falling on the exhaust manifold and burning the oil, that's what you smell. Have it check cause low oil will damage you engine.

2000 Toyota Celica coolant reservior empty


I hate to tell you this but its possible...

You have a leak. Look around on the driveway and try to determine if you have an external leak as opposed to an internal leak. If you see no coolant on the ground, suspect a blown head gasket. Do not continue to drive this car in this condition. If it does indeed have a blown head gasket, serious engine damage will occur.

Check your exhaust for white smoke. Chances are good you have a blown head gasket and coolant is leaking into the engines combustion chambers and is essentially burning off. Also check your oil, if it looks like caf mocha, this will confirm coolant is leaking into the oil via the blown head gasket
