Question about Cars & Trucks
Oil is being pumped to my Carburetor on my 86 Buick Regal .. Don't know if it happen before or after my oil change .. Does anyone know wat this could be ? This is were it's coming from .. I put a new filter on and oil is still pumping in..
Your picture won't come up. If you are getting oil in the air filter housing, check your pcv system (Positive Crankcase Ventilation). Your pcv valve may be plugged or not working.
And just so you know, it is not a carburetor. It is a throttle body assembly with throttle body injection. You have fuel injection with injectors mounted in the assembly-much more reliable than a carburetor.

More than likely (and we will hope) it is the oil sending unit. In comparison it is a very cheap and quick fix to replacing the oil pump. Auto Zone has a pretty good componet location section that has tips for replacement if you cant find the sending unit or the oil pump. Try that first it may save you a lot of work.

Sounds like you might have an oxygen sensor problem. Your catalytic converter(s) maybe defective or dirty. That in turn can dirty up the oxygen sensor. A defective oxygen sensor will send faulty info to the computer, interpreting the fumes as cold (even when the engine warms up). That causes the computer to adjust the fuel mixture to very rich, giving you poor gas mileage and the fuel smell. Hope it helps.

In the oil pan,near the transmission end.The aluminum pan on this engine is cross bolted to the main bearing caps,making it a bit tough to get on and off.

It is in the timing cover. Never have seen one that has went bad. 20+ years at a buick dealership. Remove oil pan and clean out the pick-up screen, replace oil pressure sensor and use a ac delco pf47 oil filter.
