SOURCE: High oil pressure and oil leak around oil filter seal.

It sounds like the check valve in the oil pump either has some trash in it or has gone bad. If it's a two wheel drive I don't remember the oil pan being that hard to get off. You can then drop the pickup and oil pump and soak them overnight in some parts cleaner. That may solve the problem, if there's trash in it. But if you're going to go through that much trouble, an oil pump shouldn't be that much I'd just replace it. So the problem doesn't come back. Good luck.

You need new heater plugs by the sound of it.
could be possible fuel pump starting to fail but unlikely if its just when cold.

SOURCE: Hi,

think you have cooked the injector pump ,citreons do not normally have electrics problems compared to the bane of my life RENAULTS ,was their white crystals in the fuel filter by any chance that looked like sugar?? if so then you have killed the injector pump,anyway nice to answer questions on real cars and not these gas guzzling CO2 polution machines where they think its a god given right to have a pick up truck with a 6litre petrol engine to drive to the pub in .

SOURCE: Hi ive got a citroen dispatch van 1.6 hdi 07

you surprise me,these vehicles are bullet proof under normal circumstances and yes the syncros can wear out like any make of vehicle ,but this old grandad who passed his test in a viva with no syncro on first gear ,and passed his hgv on a vehicle with no syncros at all was taught to drive in a different era and rule one was neutral and handbrake on when stopped ,not holding it on a hill by slipping the clutch ,secondly to not put a vehicle in first gear whilst moving ,well it wouldnt go anyway ,double the clutch between gears so as to reduce the wear on the syncros and gears .not to ride the clutch between changing gears and also change down using double the clutch to save the brakes and stop vehicle slipping or skidding on a wet road ,not fly up to a roundabout ,slam on brakes force it into first gear at 30 mph then try to imitate evil kenival by going around on two wheels .This sort of driving will only damage the gearbox like syncros and clutches not lasting very long .

Hi, I have a 2000 saturn LS2 3.0 v6, I got an oil change about 3 weeks ago, and my car started smoking today, I found out that half of the oil has leaked out of my car, I know that the leak is coming from...


That area is where the oil filter is and the oil pressure sending unit. Inspect the Oil filter to make sure that it's not leaking through a bad oil O ring seal, it's common for oil to leak from there is the filter has been put on to tight or to loose. If your oil pressure sending unit also have gone bad , it will leak from there. Also most important is to check your oil level, low on oil will cost you a new engine, note also to make sure that oil is not leaking from your oil drain plug at the bottom of your oil pan.

Best thing to do id to check your oil level and addif it's low and bring it back to the place your had your oil changed and let them know that your losing oil from the bottom of your engine. "oil filter area"

They will most of the time repalce the filter free of charger or just charge you for a new filter, but most likely that if it's a faulty filter. They will not charge you for a new filter.

Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.

I have a citroen dispatch and a warning light on the dash keeps coming on, it looks like a shower head, what is this?


Hi, i'm pretty sure that it's the warning light to tell you to drain the water trap on the bottom of the diesel filter.
Hope that helps Matt...

1994 GMC Safari Oil leaked out for no reason. Put more oil in...look under van and oil is leaking like a water fall. Turn Van off oil leak calms to a trickle. Other than the oil water fall the van runs...


Check the oil filter adaptor bracket. My 1993 Safari had the same problem, and the adaptor bracket and seal were bad. Replacement fixed the leak.
