I have a Ford f-150 has water in oil of the motor

Could have over heated or frozen in the cold, a oil passage is leaking. a hole is present. So a dealer will listen for the leak to to occur under pressure when engine is off. to determine the side and the source of the leak .But it could be a warranty, if not abused. but a head gasket will be the most simple repair.

Hi i have a 1994 dodge caravan it is leaking oil can this be fix im worry that we would have to save money for a van for my kids thanks

The Chrysler minivan products all had leaking problems. I have had 5 or 6 different Dodge or Plymouth minivans from 88 to 99. How bad is it. The most common thing is Valve cover leaks. Front and rear seals in the engine leak as well as the oil pan gasket. If its leaking a little bit at a time open the hood and look at the front and rear of the engine. Do you see grease and oil that has gone down the sides of the engine? Do you see a lot of grease on the engine with some clean streaks going through it. You may be able to see where its leaking from. If you know someone that knows what their doing have them change the leaky gasket/s. If not you can probably have it repaired for less than buying another van unless other things are seriously wrong with the van.
Hope this helps... Dale

I have a VERY BAD oil leak on my '97 Chevy Venture van. What all can it be ? Can I fix it myself ?

1st u must clean the engine of all grease and dirt, then run it until u can see the source of the oil leak, based on what is leaking will determine the difficulty of repair at home.

My wv crafter using engine oil 1lt / 500 km is its normal or not what im can do to using less oil

You could ring Volkswagen service but using 1lt per 500 km is extremely excessive!

If your Van is old, you could be having problem with your engine cylinders oil rings being worn or broken (obvious Black smoke and oily exhaust pipe).

Check the followings as your Van could be losing oil from:
- Oil refill cap, dipstick cap
- Head oil seals
- Engine oil sump gasket or emptying plug at the bottom
- Engine gaskets
- Oil engine rubber seals
Look for oil leaks/stains under your van: this would be a good indication of seals leak.

Take your care to a motor mechanic before it gets worst!

Hope the information is of some assistance.

Missing Oil????

Sounds like a broken oil ring and your burning it. If so you can bet the converter is already shot.

Have a Cylinder Leak Down Test ,done ,to determine the engine,integrity. Also look at the exhaust gas emissions with an analyzer. Pull the spark plugs,that will tell you which cyl is oil fouled

My van is burning oil (a lot of it) I just put in 4qt of oil two weeks ago, and again it's empty. What can i do to fix this

First you need to determine if the van is "burning" oil or "leaking" oil. If the exhaust is bluish in color, this is a good indicator that you are burning oil and you probably need a valve job. A common issue with vehicles this age is an oil leak around the valve cover gasket. Oil leaks and burns off on the manifold. If when you open the hood and smell a great deal of oil, this is more likely the cause of using so much oil. The best way is to inspect the engine compartment first. If you can't spot any excess oil there, get under the van and look for a leak near the oil pan, oil plug, or more forward toward the engine compartment. Hope you find this answer helpful. Best of luck.

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.

Oil leak on right side under top engine cover

your valve cover gasket may have blown. This can happen if you overfill above the required dipstick level. take off the valve cover and check the gasket. Better to be under the level than over. The oil preassure will try to blow from where ever there is a weak gasket.
