Question about Mazda 323
I have a lagre oil leak on my 2000 Protege 1.6L engine. Started suddenly. Had Oil pan gasket replaced, Crankshaft seal replaced, Valve cover replaced. Inside of timing belt area dry but drive belts got soaked. Sprays passanger side firewall. Some oil where head meets block on wheel well side. Most oil on block surfaces. Uses 1 Qt every 120 Miles more when highway driving. Mechanic cannot track down leak with dye; too much oil leaking; says oil is under preasure. Could it be the oil pump to block seal or head gasket?
Probably gaskets are not sealed properly you have to redo it or try and cleaned it remove all the oil that sorrounds the engine and try to seal with a high temp silicon
