    Cleaned area, removed starter. The leak is coming from one of two port holes next to starter on the block.

    TRY USEING ENGINE SEALENT IN YOUR OIL ,TAKE OUT AND PUT TO BOTTLES OF SEALENT IN TURN ON FOR A FEW MINUTES AND THEN SHUT IT OFF AND THEN REFILL THE OIL TO ITS PROPER CAPACITY,OR U CAN JUST USE J/B WELD IN THE HOLE AND LET IT DRY BUT FIRST U HAVE TO CLEAN ALL THE ACCES DIRT AND OIL WITH GAS OR ENGINE CLEANER MY PREFFERENCE IS GAS .

SOURCE: Just had the starter engine replaced on 2007

Radiators are contructed with soft metals. They have to be handled like a raw eggs sometimes. Regardless, mistakes do happen once-a-while, or so.
It looks like your your technician apparently attempted a quick short-cut by not removing the radiator before replacing the engine. If this is true, your radiator could get pinched unawares. It is also possible to have pinched one or more of the coolant carrying hoses, or even forgetting to clamp the hoses properly.
Your remedy is to return back to the shop where the engine replacement was done. Alternately, you could spend more time on it looking for the leak yourself.

I have a 2004 Dodge sprinter won't turn over with key, but will turn over by jumping starter out.


The ignition switches go out on that vehicle, so I would diagnose that first.

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.

Coolant leak under starter


If the water pump is near the starter it is in the
wrong place,it should be on front of engine.(sorry)
You could be loosing water from a pipe above the starter
one which goes to the heater.Although minor,it is leaking
onto starter and you do not want that.You must cover or
put something over starter to stop it getting wet,and this
is URGENT like yesterday. You will short the whole car
if not.

Got a 311cdi mercedes sprinter ,mileage is 250k drives well but engine is making loud tapping noise & there is oil in radiator. please help.


Your low on oil (the tapping noise) because its in your cooling system. Your vehicle uses the radiator as a cooling system for your engine oil. It runs through it to help cool the engine oil. If you have oil in the radiator, you need a new radiator before you cause more damage to the engine and the cooling system.

Consider if it is engine oil or transmission oil or power steering oil. Transmission oil or power steering oil would indicate a bad radiator. Engine oil could be a bad radiator also if the radiator includes an engine oil cooler ("extra cooling") but usually indicates an intake or head gasket leaking.
