Hi i have an 89 toyota camry its been leaking oil for a while but it never leaks on the ground or in any other fluids its not getting burned and its not leaking on the outside of the engine i...

If your not leaking externally your problem could be internal.Its quite possible your oil is going out your exhaust.I recommend you do a wet dry test on your cylinders.This test tells you whether or not you have an internal problem.What your going to do is perform a compression test on the cylinders and record the compression in each cylinder.This is the dry test.Now you want to squirt a little oil in the cylinder and do another compression test.If there is any variation in the readings from dry to wet then I would look for an internal problem such as valve guide seal,rings or valves.As far as the starter and ignition problem it could be a bad starter and ignition switch.You should take your starter to your local auto parts store and have the starter tested this is usually done for free.Also be sure you check your neutral safety switch for proper operation.

Hi, A car leaking oil will never result in the engine not starting, unless the engine has already seized. Before any corrective action can be taken, you need to determine where the oil leak is originating from. Depending upon several factors, this could be easy or it could be hard. One suggestion, do not use any of those quick fix oil additives to "fix your leak." The projected cost to fix your leak, will depend upon where your leak is. Good Luck!

1989 Cadillac Deville has started with oil leak. Not that significant - learned a mechanic had over-filled the oil, but another says not the problem. Have 72,000 original miles. Also having trouble...

Got an older car? Find an older mechanic...Someone who remembers there is an engine under the hood, not just electronics.
Typically you have nearly a one quart "leeway" on overfill. Depending upon where the leak is, you could try using an engine sealer/conditioner like the one made by Lucas...I've used it and it's pretty good. Remember though...It took a long time to develop a leak, it will take some time to soften the leaking seal and slow or stop the leak. And...there isn't a chemical in the world that will replace a failed part.

My 89 camry

Use a good fuel injector cleaner every 15k and change your air filter as needed. If it looks clean it is. The most you should be changing the AF is approx. 15 to 20k. Unless you live in a dust bowl or have the only diesel camry I know of. I recommend the use of nitrogen in the tires for improved tire wear and fuel economy.
