Sounds like you have an oil leak-lol. Is the oil filter located there? Sometimes the previous oil filter gasket gets left on by mistake. You have to locate where it is coming from first. You may have to raise the car on jackstands or blocks to get underneath it to see. Take plenty of rags with you. Sometimes mirrors and flashlights can help you see back there from above.

What would leak oil onto the starter


the oil leak could be a bad valve cover gasket needing replacement, a head gasket leaking oil, a leaking intake gasket and oil running down along the engine block and dripping. it could be an oil pressure switch that is leaking. it is near the starter while driving or engine running can spray oil onto the starter. unless the oil leak is very bad and has been leaking a long time onto the starter will not cause it to act like a dead battery even then not likely. have a starter draw test down to check condition of the starter.

2003 dodge Intrepid 2.7l oil leak above rear main seal after running 20 minutes


rear main seal usually only leaks when the car is running. though oil will slowy drip off afterwards. now the best way to tell is to remove the heat sheild that covers the flywheel and look at it and at the flywheel . is the oil only on the engine side of the cover or is it inside the cover and on the fly wheel. the rear main seal will leak into the bellhousing and on the fly wheel the oil pan gasket will leak on the front of the heat sheild.

How to fix a hardstarting 2005 chevy trailblazer?


Make sure your battery is fully charged and is the correct one for the vehicle (ie enough cold cranking amps). Check the terminals for corrosion and all your ground wires are good. Also check to see if the starter has oil on it. Starters ground on the engine block and oil can leak between them causing a bad ground. If the starter is dragging then you might want to pull it off and get it bench tested.
If the engine is turning over fine but just not firing up it could be fuel related. Pour a bottle of seafoam in the tank to see if that helps.

V6 coolant leak


If it is in fact between the bellhousing and block, and not leaking down onto the outer surface of the bellhousing, its the freeze plug on the back of the block.
The engine or trans would need to be pulled to get to it.

Massive oil leak suddenly on 2000 vw beetle looks as though came above oil filter and awhinning pumpsound present


That's the oil filter cooler seal. My car did the same thing; poured a quart of oil out on the ground in about a minute while I was looking for the source of the leak.

There's a box with radiator fluid going through it mounted between the oil filter and the block to cool the oil. It's got a large o-ring to seal it, and when that seal goes, it just *pours* oil out. Take the oil filter off and you'll see a large nut. take off the nut and the cooler will slide off - you can do that without removing the fluid lines.

The seal is between the block and the cooler and will be very obvious when it's bad; mine was missing a big chunk out of one side. Popped a new seal in, put it back together and haven't had a problem with it since.

How do i fix the oil leak at the round block on the side of the engine where a normal oil filter would attach. seems to be where the remote filter lines run down and attach. leaking from where it meets the...


It seems that you have a bad oil filter adapter seal. You can usually pick one up at your local parts store, if not, they may have to order it. To change the seal you must first remove the lines close to block and the you shoul be able to unscrew the oil cooler adapter from the block, may require an allen wrench to loosen. Then you should replace the seal or gasket inbetween the block and the cooler adapter and then reinstall the adapter, reconnect the lines. Be sure to catch the oil in a clean container so you can reuse it to pour back into the block, check the oil level and if at a safe range start the vehicle and check for leaks. If no leaks you should be ready to drive at will.

My car recently shut off when i was driving in town. it did not have much oil in it and it had an oil leak i pushed it off the road and put oil in it but the car didn't start. i noticed the antifreeze tank...


Could be several things from radiator ,hoses,water pump, FREEZE PLUGS ,cracked head or block. You need to find out where the coolant is coming from to determine it.
If the car was hot and you poured fluid in it the block,head or head gasket could crack. If it was cold and you just had watr in it the block could crack or freeze plugs could have came out.

Oil leaks pour from my Oil cooler right above oil filter when I start driving


The oil is most likely leaking from the oil cooler seal. The oil cooler is the square aluminum piece that the oil filter screws onto. To replace the seal, remove the filter, remove both coolant hoses that attach to the cooler, remove the nut that secures the cooler to the block and slide the cooler off the tube. Replace the rubber o-ring seal which is available at the VW dealer. It's inexpensive. Replace everything in reverse order. Good luck

Burnt Oil Smell


Check carefully around the valve covers, this is the area that leaks most frequently occur, and being located next to the exhaust manifold can easily cause the burning smell. There is a very easy to replace gasket under the cover. Other possibilities, shop or you when changed or added oil spilled a bit and that has worked down to the exhaust manifold and is causing the burnt oil smell. Last possibility is that you do have a slow leak on the underside of the engine that is blowing back onto the exhaust system causing the smell.
