Question about 1996 Ford Escort 4 Door

1 Answer

Oil is pouring from two pierced copper pipes around the engine.

During a camping trip, I drove in the grass and got stack onto a piece
of concrete. 4 other people had to help to get out.
I believe I damaged the sump.
But the sump is OK.
I can't understand how these two pipes around the engine, above the sump have been pierced.
What are these pipe (obviously containing engine oil)?
How much pressue is in these pipes?
Can I wrap some sticky tape around these pipes to stop it leaking?

Thanks.

    What about I put a rubber around the leaking pipe (
    microscopique hole in the pipe) and put a "serre clip"
    around the rubber + pipe to stop oil pressure escaping through this
    microscopique hole in the pipe?
    Would that parly hold the pressure until I find a garage?

Tape will not Hold on these Lines, They will need to Be Replaced. I do Believe that these Go to either the Oil Pump. There should be one for enter and one for Exit of oil after Circulation. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

First stepwould typically be to replace the PCV valve. It's located behind the valve cover at the bottom of the rubber tube that connects to the back of the valve cover and branches off to the air filter housing.

Alternate possibility:

If the head gasket has been replaced, it's likely one of the oil returns is blocked (replacement head gaskets, for whatever reason, don't usually align with the head correctly). The solution is to open the secondary oil return. I used a one foot piece of 4 gauge bare copper wire (more of a 1/4" copper rod). Remove the valve cover. Taper the end of the copper wire to a blunt point and drive it about 6 inches down the oil return on the backside of the head near the rear of the head (directly behind where the oil filler cap was).

Buick rendevous 2002, 23,000 original miles. sat for about 5 years outside. drove fine first day. 2nd day i drove 10 feet and all oil poured out. it was coming out oil sensor. we replaced oil sensor...


Check the opening around the oil filter outlet and make sure that there is no gasket still on the housing. Fram filters are famous for its gasket coming off and sticking to the surface of the inlet. When you tighten the new filter it crimps the new gasket and leaks all the oil out. I have had this happen to me twice. No more Fram filters for me. Buy PUROLATER. Hope this helps

I hit a rock on the front end of my Subaru Legacy 1993. I pierced the oil pan, not much else has little scraps on it. i live no more than 10 miles away from where this happened so i put gum over the hole...


in the oil pan(sump) there is an oil pick up pipe and a filter on the end of it. The pan being damaged the oil pick up was probably bent and hitting on the big ends or the balance of the crank shaft. have the pan pulled and check for damage on the oil pipe and pick up filter. Replace the pipe and filter as they will be cracked or fractured and in future will break and the pump will run out of oil.==engine failure.

Oil in coolant.had head gasket done.but the problems still ther


either you havent flushed the cooling system out properly ,or the oil cooler has packed up ,their is a oil cooler radiator of sorts that the oil filter screws onto ,these often leak ,just remove the water pipes and join them together with a small piece of copper pipe ,then if you see oil coming out of the water pipes fit a new cooler

Knocks alot is it the motor or is there a bolt in the transmision bell


Look under the car to see if there is a loose heat shield around the exhaust pipe/catalytic converter area. Look right between the front seats (under the car). The front portion normally rusts away from the bolts holding it in place. This is like a ****-shell part - the top half or bottom half vibrate against the catalytic converter (sounds like knocking). Dealer can fix for about $100. You can fix for about $5.

Get a small piece of fiber glass fabric (auto store) and fold nicely and fit betwen the loose parts. Then get 3 pieces of 10 gauge copper about 18 inches long and wrap around the entire heat shield and twist tight. This will stop the vibration and last a long time in harsh environmental conditions. Do not just drive without the heat shield. You can melt your carpeting and start fires if you ever drive on grass.

Oil light goes on...had a dry stick 4 1/2 qts put in. no oil on ground. after oil change light went on at 70 miles.. on 15 secs then off for 5 miles then on again 15 secs--- off 4 miles--off 3 miles- off 2...


if it's not going onto the ground, and it's not being burned, check the positive crankcase ventilation and the exhaust gas recirculation valves for oil seepage...also check your air filter, if its got oil on it replace the pcv valve.
