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.
The ticking noise is can be a sign of low oil pressure or worn out oil/wrong oil grade. Since you just changed your oil I would say that it is not the oil. The decrease in ticking comes from the new thicker oil. If you have an oil pressure gage, locate the oil pressure switch or any other oil passage to the engine and connect the gage to the passage and check the oil pressure and compare that to the mfg specs.. The oil pressure will most likely be something between 30-60 when the engine revs up a little but do check the mfg specs from a manual or call the dealer for the info.. If it has very little or no oil pressure it could cause extensive engine damage or complete engine failure. It is best to check the pressure or have it checked before you continue to drive the vehicle.
Coolant is mixing with the oil, so it is turning milky.The most possible problem is an cracked cylinder head or head gasket.Check them and get it replaced before it damages the engine worsly.. Dain the oil and have it refilled after replacing then broken part.
Hi, A car leaking oil will never result in the engine not starting, unless the engine has already seized. Before any corrective action can be taken, you need to determine where the oil leak is originating from. Depending upon several factors, this could be easy or it could be hard. One suggestion, do not use any of those quick fix oil additives to "fix your leak." The projected cost to fix your leak, will depend upon where your leak is. Good Luck!
Coolant either leaks out, evaporates, or is exhausted through the engine. Check your oil & see if you notice any coolant mixed in, indicating internal seal issues. Also, you can have a small amount of coolant drawn into the engine cylinder & exhausted as steam or vapor and never notice. If only a small amount and no noticeable engine problems, evaporation. Engine miss sometimes & refilling anti-freeze often is an internal leak, generally the Head Gasket. Very rarely, a transmission (automatic only) has been found with antifreeze in it due to a leak in the radiator/transmission cooling system. Good Luck.
most likely torque converter problem if fluid is decreasing, but could be other problems my advice take it to a good transmission shop or the dealer, also you can if you want retrieve the code in the computer by following the instructions in the repair manual ex:haynes or chiltons for retrieving the codes from the ecu or you can buy an OBDI dianostic scanner from local parts store
Assuming you meant "RPMs Increased as speed decreased." This is usually referred to as a "slipping" condition in an automatic transmission. It's much like when your clutch wears out and it starts to slip. THe engine revs up and you go slower! Especially driving up hills since the load is greater on the powerplant. You should be darn sure you are full of Trans. fluid. Check it properly like your manual describes. If you are in the operating range of fliud level, your transmission is likely going out. If this sounds like your problem, take the car to a qualified service center, not the local quickie oil-change outfit, for an expert opinion.
