Oil leak when car is on slight slope

Im not fully conversant with Turbos , but I would hazard a guess from memory that there is an oil feed from the engine to the turbo to lubricate it. I would think that the oil sump in the turbo has a seal at one or both ends. When the car is level, the oil doesn't reach the level of the oil seal, and therefore doesn't leak. When the car is on a slope, the oil will level itself out and probably be above the oil seal and then it leaks. Check if the leak occurs only when the car is pointing uphill or downhill. It may give you an idea as to which end seal is leaking.

Oil leaking heavy just above oil filter ,passenger side 2002 crv ,not coming from head oil leaking heavy passenger side above oil filter, not coming from head

If it is leaking at the oil filter the previous rubber gasket may have stuck to the block. When the new oil filter was installed then the gasket was doubled and will leak.

93 ford ranger 4.0 4x4 manual tranny. has absolutely no horsepower. Loud hissing from tranny area on passenger side, can't find any misplaced vaccum lines.

Sure sounds like you described a major vacuum leak. When I cant find them, I spray Carb cleaner in the area of the hiss with engine idling, if RPM increases some you have a leak, if engine dies you have a bad leak.Since I dont know if your engine is carbureted or fuel injected, not much else I can suggest.

I have a 1997 Chevy Suburban. Oil is leaking and dripping down the oil filter. The filter is tight. Do you know where it could be coming from? Also, my rear passenger's side signal/brake light is not...

the engine oil cooler lines are a common problem and they plug into the oil filter adaptor above the oil filter via quick connect fittings,as for your brake light check your ground wire first.
