I'm presuming an oil leak?

Check around the sump where it bolts to the bottom end. Visually inspect the sump for holes (altho you would be losing oil pretty severly if there is). Check around the oil filter, might not be sealed right.

One way to narrow the leak location is get a sheet of card and put it on the ground under the engine bay overnight. It should show you where the oil is dripping from or what its dripping off.

Also Accents have a habbit of dropping oil level very quickly when they are getting close to requiring an oil top up.

Vacuum leak


Symptoms of engine vacuum leak: The problems that arise from an engine vacuum leak can be more than annoying. Idle speed that is way too fast is one of the difficulties, and stalling is another. Confirmation of an engine vacuum leak can be a very loud hissing sound coming from the engine area.

Gas leak, engine light on


Gas or oil leak? Gas leak can turn the light on. Oil doesn't. Try to notice where the leak is under the car on the ground. Look under the car and see where the leak is on the frame. All this helps. Have the codes read.

Engine vacuum leak and oil level come down and car smoking and engine noise


You can find the vacuum leak easily. With engine running, spray some starting fluid near where you suspect the leak to be. If the engine speeds up from sucking the starting fluid in at the leak, you found the leak. Fix it. As for the burning oil and engine noisy, you will need to rebuild or replace the engine because it's worn out.

How to locate the engine oil leak does the car need to be running


Usually you won't see a leak until the car is parked. It's a good idea to put a piece of cardboard under the car after it's been driven to detect the leak or leaks. If you see any drops or puddle on the cardboard, crawl underneath the car and lookup under the engine to see where the leak is coming from. Look at the area above the puddle or dripping.

Started engine on cold morning and left running to defrost screen...... came back 15mins later to find engine oil all over floor......


Either the oil cap was left off, or there is a really bad leak somewhere.

Look at the engine for signs that oil is splashed everywhere and the cap is on. If the oil cap is on and there is splatter everywhere, there is a leak in the upper part of the motor. If not then the leak is most likely lower.

Fill the engine up to the full level on the oil dipstick, start the car with the hood open and watch for the leak. Be ready to turn the car off quick if it starts to leak out real fast. If this is the case, have the car towed to a repair facility. You do not want to drive it!

Power streering leak, smoke under hood for 1996 Geo Prizm


Yes , power steering fluid will smoke if it gets on a hot engine, especially on any part of the exhaust system. Barring anything else wrong with the engine such as a coolant leak, and the engine running OK otherwise, I would say that the smoke is from power steering fluid dripping or getting blown on the exhaust by the fan.

Fuel Leak


I wouldn't drive or start it with a fuel leak, it needs to be up on a lift to see it all clear, before any proper diagnosis.
