If leak is from top at rear my bet would be that valve cover gaskets are leaking. They are not too hard to change. Good Luck

Excessive Oil leak on 1985 Chrysler Laser 2.2L (non-turbo). My 17 year old son purchased the car with little history. Noticed a small oil leak on driveway. Replaced the valve cover gasket and leak...


A plugged pcv system will cause excessive oil leaks. But it sounds like you have a massive leak. If the passenger side is leaking behind the timing cover there may be up to four seals that may leak.single cam motor will have one cam seal dual will have two cam seals. Crank seal and possible oil pump seal. Would recommend pressure washing motor, go to local parts store and get some engine dye. Then support car and let engine get warm. And try to pinpoint leak.

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

Just changed the oil pan gasket in my 1996 ford windstar and its still leaking oil and there is oil all over the passenger side of my van ,where else can this leak be?


You have a front and rear main seal, if either of these are leaking the oil will be coming from the center of the engine above the oil pan. There are 2 1 in front and 1 in back of the engine.

Oil leaks and blows out from the engine to the rear bumper. Such a mess, can't find leak. Where are the places this engine oil might be coming from? Passenger side looks clean. Drivers side to the rear of...


Go to your local "wand type" car wash. The high pressure will work well to clean the oil off. Be prepaired to get dirty. Let the engine cool down for a few minutes then raise the hood and clean the engine as well as under the car all the way to the back. Let it dry for a while. Start the engine and watch for the leak (s). You may have to drive it some to find to find it but don't drive to far between times you stop and check for the leak or you will have to clean it off again. If the leak is as bad as you say I would look at the front & rear main seals or the oil filter first and then the valve cover.

Oil leak passenger side 300 turbo sedan, some on front passenger side wheel. Never lost oil pressure, but dipstick showed very little oil in crankcase on immediate after-run check. Have not started...


Add about 2.5-quarts of new engine oil to the engine.
Remove the passenger-side wheel, and support the car on jack-stands.
Start the engine and look for oil leak.
Chances are leaks are coming from failed oil-pan gasket or the drain-plug.
The head-cover gasket could be failing as well..

Oil leak


the pcv valve gets plugged up those building up pressure in the crank case and blowing out the oil pump seal on the front of the motor!
