Good morning and welcome to fixya.

lets see if we cant get you some help here, you say you installed a new oil pan gasket and tightened all the bolts to spec. did you clean the mating surfaces completely and use a gasket sealer i.e high tack, gasket may have slipped when reinstalling could be on the end of pan, have you pin-pointed the spot where it is leaking from? you might run a dye test on it. could be leak coming from above running down disguising itself. not sure what steps you have already taken. if you could let me know so i can help you more. thank you again, and you and i will get you leak fixed

SOURCE: 2000 Engine oil leak

most likely front cover o-ring. there is a small $4 dollar o ring behind the front engine cover, that leaks. Pretty common problem on your car.

SOURCE: my 2003 ford taurus has oil pan gasket leak just

All you have to do is get under the car with a 1/2" drive ratchet, 3" extension, an extension swivel, and the socket for the bolts on the oil pan. Go through all the bolts and tighten them all up. You will be surprised at how loose some of them are.

Is there a certain type of gasket or something else when there is a oil leak starting in a 1998 pontiac firefly


clean around the oil pan gasket area well as some oil leaks are actually rocker cover gasket and filter leaks that run down the block and appear as pan leaks.. Check front crankshaft seal as the oil from there also appears as a pan leak

Oil leak on 2007 chevy impala


Only a trusted local auto service shop or dealer can answer this for you because your vehicle would have to be up on a lift to actually see what's leaking in order to properly diagnose and repair. It may be as simple as changing the oil pan gasket or a cracked oil pan that would have to be either replaced or repaired depending on the size of the crack. There is also the remote chance that its actually something else that's leaking. Hope this helps.

I have an oil pan lead in my 2006 dts, how to fix?


I assume you mean an oil pan LEAK. If so either the pan has a hole in it or the gasket is leaking. Either way the pan will have to be removed to repair the hole of replace the gasket. If it is the gasket that is leaking try tightening the oil pan bolts to 10 ft/lbs of torque.

I was told there are two oil pans on Mazda Tribute 2001 (upper & lower) 4 cylinder manual. I have an oil leak do I replace both?


There are two gaskets, one is between the lower pan and the upper pan, and the second is between the upper pan and the engine. You only need to replace the gasket that leaks. If both are leaking, replace them both. To find out where the leaks are, raise the car, get underneath, and look closely all around the oil pans to see where the oil is coming from. Use a flashlight if necessary. You should be able to trace any leaking oil upward to its source.

The oil pan gaskets are not necessarily the only sources of oil leaks. Check to see if any oil is coming from behind the timing cover, and look for oil coming from the valve cover gasket.
