Oil leak on a '92 Geo Tracker. Installed an O Ring, but still leaking. Any suggestions?


O-ring where? The drain plug? Distributor shaft? Or do you mean oil seal?
Geo oil drain plug specifies a compressible copper ring washer I think? Need to clean the surfaces well, and torque to spec. My own plug's seal is not perfect, but only a drop here and there usually. Autozone or NAPA can supply you a new plug and washer if needed.

Oil leak on driveway coming from front of engine


Dear Sir,
Here is the oil leaking Problem Identifying Technique

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket are common.

  • The intake manifold plenum gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption/burning and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.
  • External oil leaks from valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets (front or rear), and the rear crankshaft (rear main) seal area are common. The rear main seal is an unlikely source. Normally, the bearing cap mating surfaces (as well as the sealing surface between the oil pan and bearing cap) are the source for the leaks.
  • Engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from theintake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.
  • If the oil filter casing shows signs of distortion from excessive oil pressure, theoil pump should be replaced.
  • Often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
  • Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

    Oil leaking from toyota camry 1992, 1994 model


    You don't say what engine it has. The 4-cyl was a better than the V6 for oil leaks.

    The V6 had oil leaks from

    -rear bank cam cover gasket

    -distributor o-ring seal

    -oil filter bracket o-ring seal

    -crankshaft nose oil seal (less common)

    -rear main bearing oil seal (expensive, just leave it)

    The 4 cyl leaked oil from

    -distributor o-ring seal

    -camshaft cover gasket

    -rear main bearing seal (expensive, leave it)

    Leaking oil from between the engine and gearbox


    The distributor is located right atop the trans and engine, it can leak oil and appear to be a main seal leak.

    Otherwise, you have a bad crank seal if its oil, and bad trans seal if its trans fluid. In these cases the trans or engine has to be broken apart from one another.

    You better hope for a leaky distributor, or even a leaky intake gasket by the distributor.

    Leaking oil left side of motor


    Since it's not clear whether you mean driver side or passenger side, I will address both.

    On the driver side, the most common leak is from the distributor. This can be caused by the distributor shaft exterior o-ring, or it can be caused by the distributor shaft interior bearing seal. To determine which it is, remove the distributor. First detach the spark plug wires, then undo the bolt that holds the distributor to the head, then pull the distributor out of the head. You will see the o-ring on the exterior of the distributor shaft. This is a $0.50 part, so just replace it with a new one as long as you have the distributor out. The bearing seal is on the inside of the distributor. To inspect it, undo the three bolts holding the cap to the distributor body. Pop the rotor off the shaft, the unclip the inside plastic cover. If you see any oil inside the distributor or the distributor cap, this means the seal is leaking and must be replaced. You can get a seal and bearing replacement kit from kbox.ca. Or, you can just buy a new distributor. Note: To get the distributor back in place you must align the shaft correctly with the notch in the camshaft. There is a right way and a wrong way. If the shaft seems to be aligned but does not go in, pull it out and rotate it 180 degrees, then put it back in.

    The other possibility on the driver side of the engine is the main seal between the engine and transmission. If this is the case, you would have to either drop the transmission or pull the engine to replace it.

    What if the oil is leaking on the passenger side? If it's coming from behind the timing belt cover, there is a camshaft seal and a crankshaft seal, both of which can leak oil. To get to them, you will have to remove all accessory belts and the alternator, remove the exterior crankshaft pulley, remove the engine mount (support the engine) and the timing belt covers, remove the timing belt, then the crankshaft pulley and/or camshaft pulley, whichever is necessary to replace the leaking seal(s).

    Where else could oil be leaking from? If it's coming out from near the top of the engine, that's the valve cover gasket. Remove the valve cover and replace the gasket. While you're at it, replace the spark plug tube seals.

    If it's coming out from near the bottom of the engine, it could be the oil pan gasket. Remove the oil pan and replace the gasket.

    One more possibility for oil leakage: The head gasket. But in this case you would have noticed other symptoms besides just an oil leak.

    Good luck! Let us know how it turns out.

    My 1994 Hinda Civic CX appears to be leaking oil from the distributor housing...what do youu suggest in troubleshooting my problem?


    If it is coming from inside the distributor it is an oring inside the distributor. If it is coming from around the outside it is a shaft seal. Remove the distributor either way, The internal oring can only be fixed by replacing the distributor, the external one can be replace by requesting it at the local parts house.

    How can I disasemble a 1994 Altima distributor? I need to change the internal seal o bearing since it is leaking oil to the inside of the housing.


    You do not need to disasemble the entire distributor. Unplug the black electrical connector from the distributor. (with a white marker or correction ink)Mark the screws and dist to maintain the same settings. remove the two main screws, one in the front and one in the rear of the distributor assembly(not on the cap). The Distributor should slide out. These O-ring seals are not sold at the dealers or parts store. They want you to pay over $150+ to replace the entire dist. I brought in the old seal and I was able to match a seal at autozone. It worked. Hopefully this helpd

    1990 HONDA ACCORD DISTRIBUTOR LEAKING OIL INTERNALLY


    Lease check and make sure that you replace with the right seal, that alone should have taken care of this problem. However if the valve cover gasket is loose or bad it will cause oil to leak around distributor are but NOT into distributor. This seal can be easily replaced by loosing 4 10mm bolts on top of valve cover. Contact if you need more help Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA
