A "spray" is not a leak.. That sounds more a like an Oil Sending Unit .. Peep near the oil filter and look for a screw-in thingy with wires ( or wire ) goin to it.. Its unther the car near the front of the engine withing 6 inches of the oil filter

95 camaro oil leak causing smoke

You need to determine if it is your oil pan, oil sender switch, oil filter, etc. dripping oil onto your exhaust causing the smoke, or if it is coming out of the exhaust itself. If it is dripping onto the exhaust, deal with sealing the affected area. (new oil pan gasket, sender switch, etc.) If coming out of the exhaust, indicated worn piston rings or valve seals.

Coolant leak from radiator and white smoke coming from the hood.

Sounds like you have blown a head gasket. Do not run the engine like this or you will seize it up . anti freeze will freeze the pistons and you will need a new engine. Hope you have not ruined it now.
White smoke is a sign of water in the piston area.

2003 mazda tribute giving off bad smell and smokes after driving for about 30 minutes.

By bad smell I take it that you are noticing a smell in the car while driving and not from the rear of the car. I'll also assume that the smoke is coming from under the hood and not the tail pipe. Sounds like you have an oil leak around the top of the engine that is dripping onto the exhaust pipe. I recommend that you clean the engine compartment with a good degreaser like Purple Power or Super Clean. Spray the entire engine down, everywhere you can. Let the degreaser sit for 10-15 minutes and rinse off with a strong stream of water. Repeat as necessary until the engine is free of visible grease and oil. Then buy some engine oil UV dye and put that into the engine oil filler. Save some for the power steering pump (about 10th of a bottle is enough). Get some UV Glasses and a light used for detecting air conditioner leaks. Run the car for 15 minutes down the road. Stop and look for the florescent dye trails to find your leak. This is the hardest part of fixing this problem. After the leak is found the repair is usually minor.

95 camaro 3.4L is leaking water behind the motor in between the transmission & the oil pan. what can it be?

Water leaking from between the engine and transmission can only come from one place...there are two welch plugs (freeze plugs), located on either side of the rear cam plug. They rust out and leak. Your transmission needs to be removed to get to them. Sealers will not seal either.
Though they last a pretty long time, I always replace them with brass/bronze ones made for marine engines.Those will outlast the engine!!!
Make absolutely that nothing above the bellhousing is leaking before you do the's too much work to do for no reason!!!

When i start my car oil squirts up out of the motor where could it be coming from


Let's start by telling you how to diagnose the problem.

Most oil leaks are easily located and repaired by visually finding the leak and replacng or repairing the necessary parts. On some occasions a fluid leak may be difficult to locate or repair. The following procedure may help in locating and repairing most leaks.

Finding the Leak
  • Identify the fluid, determine whether it is engine oil, automatic transmission fluid, power steering fluid, etc.
  • At what location or point is the fluid leaking from? After running the vehicle at normal operating temperature, park the vehicle over a large sheet of paper, After a few minutes, you should be be able to ascertain the approximate location of the leak by the drippings on the paper.
  • Visually check around the suspected component. Check around all gasket mating surfaces and hoses for leaks. If your car provides engine oil cooling, check the oil lines leading to the radiator. A mirror is useful for finding leaks in areas that are hard to reach. If the leak still cannot be found, it may be necessary to clean the suspected area with a degreaser, steam or spray solvent. Most car washes provide this service or make it possible for you to do it yourself. Clean the area well, then dry the area. Operate the vehicle for several miles at normal operating temperatures and varying speeds. After operating the vehicle , visually check the suspected component. If you still cannot locate the leak, try using the power method.

The Power Method
  • Clean the suspected area.
  • Apply an aerosol-type powder, e.g., face powder, to the suspected area.
  • Operate the car under normal operating conditions.
  • Visually inspect the suspected component. You should be able to trace the leak path over the white powder surface to the source.

Good luck and all the best

I got a 1995 camaro and just got the oil change and smoke is coming from under the hood.

Sounds to me like oil got spilled onto the engine and exhaust manifold. I had to get an oil filler extension to keep that from happening when I changed the oil in my '96. Otherwise; No matter how careful I was, some oil always got spilled and then it would be a few days of driving and some smoking before it all dried up.

Have you looked things over carefully under the bonnet?

Have you looked things over carefully under the bonnet for evidence of a BP event.. Oops! I mean evidence of an oil spell?

My oil cap melted in the engine

No, this can present a serious problem if introduced to the main oil compartment. if its ingested into the gear rotations, this can disrupt timing and other vital workings.I suggest removal of all plastic parts that may have become lodged in this specific area.
