Yes, Those small leaks will become big leaks. Is it trans fluid red color? Then I would go back to the shop where the trans service was done to have them re-seal the pan gasket.

SOURCE: water pump still leaks 92 cadillac deville

I hate to tell you this because I know it isn't an easy task changing the water pump but if it is coming between the block and the water pump housing you need to pull it back off and make real sure it is very clean by scraping the old gasket off and putting sealer on the gasket. Every bit of the old gasket has to be removed before putting the new gasket on. You could try and tighten down your bolts a little but be careful not to break the bolt or you then have another problem.

SOURCE: How do I remove the

Answer is.... You will not be able to remove the oil pan with out ruining the oil pan gasket. You may want to buy a new gasket and a about 4 cans of oil before you start. There is a drian plug in that vehical for the engine oil. Not the tranny. Go to a place like PetBoys and get the gasket first, and the oil!. Keep in mind you may want to make sure the oil pump pick up filter is clean' Once you drop the pan you will see the pick up for the pump.
Hope that may help you.

I'm looking for votes. If my info. was helpfull please vote with all your 4 thumbs.
Thanks

SOURCE: how to replace oil pan

Oil Pan REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. Drain the crankcase.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Negative battery cable
    • Oil level indicator harness connector, if equipped
    • Exhaust Y-pipe, if needed
    • Transaxle assembly from the vehicle.
    • Oil pan bolts and the oil pan
    To install: NOTE: The oil pan gasket is reusable unless it is damaged. Do not remove the gasket from the oil pan groove unless gasket replacement is required.
  4. Thoroughly clean the inside of the oil pan and the cylinder block contact surface. If the oil pan gasket is being reused, be careful not to damage it. Do not expose the gasket to cleaning solvents.
  5. If a new gasket is being installed, start the gasket into the oil pan groove and work the gasket into the groove in both directions. Once the gasket is exposed to oil, it will expand and no longer stay in the groove without wrinkles. If this condition exists, replace the gasket.
  6. Install or connect the following:
    • Oil pan. Torque the bolts, in sequence, to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
    • Oil level indicator connector, if removed
    • Transaxle assembly, if removed
    • Y-pipe, if removed
    • Flywheel cover, if removed
    • Oil pan drain plug. Torque it to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
    • Negative battery cable
  7. Refill the crankcase.
  8. Run the engine and check for leaks. Fig. 1: Oil pan bolt torque sequence 7922vg08.gif

2007 Honda odyssey oil pressure @ hot idle 100K miles. How much psi


It can vary. Most vehicles will run at or above 40 psi on oil pressure, but can function at lower ones. Less than 20 psi would be cause for concern for long term wear issues or oil pump failure.

Hello: There isn't any temporary repair. It is a major task to seal the oil leak, the engine has a two piece oil pan. To remove the oil pan either the transmission or engine has to be removed to accomplish the task.

1994 Cadillac Deville loosing a lot of oil. No oil residue on tail pipe, not smoking, no oil in antifreeze...


Does it drip off onto the driveway? As in oil pools?

You first need to determine if the oil is blowing out when the engine is on high revs or if it happens anytime the engine operates. On my 1996 Mark VIII it ended up being the valve cover gaskets, but at first it was such a small leak that it would only blow out when the engine was at high revs. I eventually found the problem by steam cleaning the engine and then using kitchen floor to spot the leak.

I did a oil change on my 1994 gmc suburban w/5.7L and it started leaking oil on the back of the motor by the intake and the brass fitting for the oil pressure sensor. It is a steady leak and will lose all...


OK, does it appear that the oil pressure sensor is leaking through the plastic to metal seam (on the sensor itself)?

Have had an oil pressure sending unit go bad and leak on a 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais that needed to be replaced.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION C1500 Suburban 1994
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and drain the engine oil.
  2. Disconnect the sensor electrical lead and unscrew the sensor. The sensor can be found on the top side of the engine, near the distributor. To install:
  3. Coat the first two or three threads with sealer. Install the sensor and tighten until snug. Engage the electrical lead.
  4. Connect the battery cable and fill the engine with oil.

My 2007 GMC 1500 With the V8 has the add oil lite coning on after about 4000 miles after the last 2 oil changes.. only have 43000 miles and the oil is not showing on the dipstick


GM HAS A BULLETIN OUT PIP4574E

THE BULLETIN PERTAINS TO AN OIL CONSUMPTION PROBLEM WITH THE ENGINE. IT INVOLVES THE LEFT HAND VALVE COVER AND THE LIFTERS. THE LIFTERS ARE THE MAIN CONCERN, THEY PUMP TOO MUCH OIL AND IT GETS PUMPED INTO THE VENT HOLES IN THE PCV AREA OF THE VALVE COVER ALLOWING IT TO BE SUCKED UP INTO THE INTAKE MANIFOLD AND BURNED.

BOSTRUCK IS CORRECT ABOUT YOUR WARRANTY.

Check the filter to make sure it the right one and on tight. Do not drive without oil. Engine will seize-up.

Oil disappearing with no visible leaks and engine not using oil.


Check out this thread and take your Caddy for a couple of Wide Open Throttle runs on the Interstate. Clears out the carbon buildup on the rings that is causing oil blowby.
