    You are going to need a New Oil Filler Cap. Somehow it was no put Back on or was not put Back on Tight Enough. You can use a Shop Rag or Wash Cloth until you can get the New Cap. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

I have a engine noise sounds like lifters but goes away and then comes back

What is your oil pressure gauge doing? Low oil pressue will cause lifter sound. Check your oil. A small exhaust leak will sound like lifters also, but generally will go away after the exh manifolds heat up, if they have a small crack.

1998 dodge dakota 1998 bad oil leak losing 5 quarts in a month . the oil is on alternator and all over cant find leak any suggestions where to look

Try cleaning the engine with degreaser and hose off the oil and muck. Let the engine dry out and then start the engine and look where the oil is leaking from.
From your description, the oil could be leaking from the tappet cover. May need a new gasket or the tappet cover bolts needs tightening.

Oil leak in front of engine around the distributor. top of engine

Its either the valve cover gasket or the o ring that seals the distributor.
It could be coming from either, so look for oil on the valve cover above
the distributor. If you see oil there its the valve cover.
If you dont see oil coming from the valve cover above the distributor, then look or touch
the bottom of the distributor and if there is oil there then the distributor oring is
whats leaking.

The car leaks oil only when engine runs, intermittently,a trail of oil yesterday as moved out of garage ,today nothing .looks to be comming from valve cover,which happens routinely with these engines but...

the oil could be leaking from valve cover and sitting in a bottom engine cover(plastic covers on bottom of car) and oil trail when move, will leak more when engine hot as oil gets thinner and easier to escape. Would replace gaskep asap or will cover engine in black sticky muck which is not nice to try and clean and engine oil is not the best thing to get off your garage floor.

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

Why does my engine oil smells like gas, and when i drive there is a lous gas odor in the car

You might have a leaking fuel injector, which is dumping fuel into it's respective engine cylinder, which then leaks down into the crankcase where the engine oil is. Then, as you drive, the gas is evaporating and getting into the car through the vents. It's a very serious, possibly explosive problem anytime you have excessive gas in your engine oil. Have it looked at and repaired immediately.

Smells like burning oil, oil is running out under car with a small amount of smoke. There is no noise and no warning lights are on. Oil is under the hood on most of the stuff.

Most likely cause is a leak in the valve cover gasket. Under pressue, a good sized leak will spurt and burn off on the manifuld, causing the smell of burning oil you're getting. This also would cause the presence of oil throughout the engine compartment. Best of luck on your problem.

Oil sensor

Depends on the model...I believe your engine is losing oil pressure. You may have a crack in your oil pan or bad oil pump. Oil Pressue sensors or usually located somewhere near on on the oil filter mounting.
