Question about Volkswagen Beetle
1971 VW super beetle losing all it's oil in a matter of minutes. leak comes from between the transmission and the engine. replaced rear main seal, installed carburetor kit, and new fuel pump, but still loses it's oil. what could be the problem?
If oil is truly coming from between the engine and trans then seal replacement didn't work or one of the soft plugs in the back of the block are leaking OR the block is cracked in this area (I HAVE seen this happen!)... did you look closely at the source of this oil? Are you sure that it's not the oil cooler seals (this is inside the fan shroud and hard to diagnose, but will will result in total oil loss within minutes!) Replace the oil, put the bug in the air, run it and watch the flow of oil while wiping with a rag to be sure of the source. If it's truly coming from between the block and trans, then pull the motor back out and thoroughly inspect with flywheel removed... also check that all the nuts and bolts holding the case halves together are tight... Hope this helps...;-)
