My 79 ford courier is leaking oil badly when it hasnt been driving and parked for days


Here is what you must do, pressure wash the engine and the transmission top and especially bottom of all grease and oil residue then install a bottle of special die that glows under a black light, drive the truck for a 10 or so miles and then put it on a car lift and check for the source of the leak with a black light. On this old of an engine the leak are likely all over the place.

I have a 93 pontiac grandam.quad oc engine.i have whiteish foamy sometimes tannish color in my oil.not losing collant,doesnt overheat,had a compression test done and showed no leaks.what could it be?its...


That really should be oil in your coolant. That's not good. You did a good job describing it.
If you will take off a cylinder head, (that will be happening soon!) you will see holes large and small in your engine block.
The holes have 3 functions.
The biggest ones are cylinders with pistons that make the engine run and the car move.
Two other smaller holes carry coolant in one and motor oil in the other. Coolant flows all over in passages inside the engine to cool it.
Oil flows from the oil pump to the top of the engine to lubricate your camshaft, etc.
A head gasket is leaking oil from the oil passage into the coolant passage.
That's becasue the oil passage has about 40# pressure while the coolant has about 15# pressure.

No oil in engine


8000 over is not good. You lose some oil to what is called "blow by". This is when oil pushed by the rings around the pistons. This is a slow process but over time you could lose a bit and not notice any smoke. Also over time oil breaks down when not changed often causing a lot of it to stick to enternal parts of the engine which could be why you didnt get a light. Just some thoughts, sorry about your troubles

Check engine light is on, and when i go past 40 it stops running. doesnt turn off just stops running.


check transmission fluid level.if fluid level okay, transmission fluid and filter been changed. code scan for ecm faults.sound like problem in the transmission torque converter.leaking valve body gasket or faulty valve body and bad oil pump losing pressure not enough oil pressure to get transmission in drive or over drive.

No heat , antifreez leak not visable...


A car this new should have a warranty right? the only other place for anti-freeze to go is through a blown headgasket into your oil. Pull out your oil dipstick and make sure it is not milky in color. If not check behind the engine and see if any coolant lines going into the firewall are leaking. When inside the car do you smell steaming coolant(anti-freeze) or hear gurgling? The temp gauge that stays on is the overheat indicator?

Why would my 96 honda civic be burning oil


Is it burning it or leaking it? If it is burning it then it could be caused from worn out valve seals or valve guides or worn out or cracked piston rings. The engine will have to be torn down to fix a problem like this. You may try using a product like motor honey or lucal oil stabalizer to help slow down the oil burning. There is no easy fix for a problem like this unfortunately

I have a oil leak under my car and my exhaust smokes after i drive it


the smoke is from the oil leak..oil blowing onto the exhaust while driving....where is the oil leak? at the rear of engine? check to see if your valve cover gasket is leaking...it could also be a rear main seal in the back of engine, maybe even the oil pan gasket.

Check oil light stays on even after a full oil change


The oil pan has a sensor in it that need to be replaced. It screws in and you may lose some oil.

1997 Jeep Cherokee Leaking Oil whilst driving


This could be the rear main seal on the crank shaft that is leaking, clean around all the areas completely to isolate the leak.  There are some oil additives available at your parts store that work to cause swelling of the seal to re-seal it.  This may or may not work, but it may slow the leak.
