1992 Volvo 940Gle Oil leak

I have an oil leak behind my timing chain cover/assembly where it meets the valve cover. The leak looks to be coming from a seal between the valve cover and the timing chain assembly, directly above the water pump. I am looking for detailed instuctions on the removal and replacement of this assembly?? DIAGRAMS OF THIS AREA of the engine would be very helpful and greatly appreciated. I need a FIXYA! I am losing about a half a quart of oil every few days.

    I was looking for a diagram or some instructions from the Fixya! community, I do all my own repairs and can't really afford to purchase a manuel at this point.

My 1998 Saturn sl2 is constantly leaking oil from the valve cover, what is the best fix.

You have to apply a dab of RTV sealant where the timing chain assembly meets the cylinder head. And you have to be very careful when tightening the valve cover bolts. Overtightening causes leaks.

Oil leak front engine timing chan

1995 Tracker would have a timing BELT. Normal oil leak points (in order) on a Suzuki G16 engine are the distributor base (rear of motor), valve cover (top of motor), front main seal (behind lower timing belt cog) cam seal (behind the upper timing belt cog) and rear main seal. (behind the flywheel). I'd suspect the front main seal or cam seal. I use foot power to help find oil leaks.

What makes you think the valve cover was leaking,was oil coming from there.Exactly where is it leaking from.If the oil filter is tighten too tight,then it will leak,also by the oil filter is the oil pressure switch,it's screwed into block,it can leak.The rear oil seal can leak,where engine and transmission meet.If valve cover is not installed correctly,it will leak and loose compression.

My wife drove my 1992 Honda Accord for approximately 4-5 miles with oil light on. Turns out the car was leaking.leaking its oil from timing chain area. Is there any engine damage?

Possibly, but I'd replace the leaking gasket/seal.
Also note, the Honda uses a timing belt (not a chain), and you don't want oil on the belt. If there's a chance the belt has gotten oil on it, you want to take the timing belt cover off, remove the belt, and clean all the oil covered parts. The oil can wear out the belt as well as cause the belt to slip timing

92 voyager oil pump replacement.

Remove the engine front cover then drain the engine oil and take out the oil pan. It is under the engine and looks like the bottom of the motor.
Unscrew the oil pump mounting bolts with a wrench and proceed to remove the oil pump itself by pulling it down and out of the engine. Avoid getting any contaminants into the oil pump assembly while removing.
Add fresh oil to the new pump to prime it. Check the alignment on the new oil pump drive with the crankshaft/intermediate crankshaft timing.
  • Step 2 Install the new pump carefully, rotating it back and forth a little to make sure it has full surface contact between the pump and the engine block.
  • Step 3 Hold the pump in its sealed position and put in the pump mounting bolts, tightening them to 15 ft-lb.
  • Step 4 Put the engine oil pan back in and refill the crankcase. Start the engine and check for leaks on the parts you replaced
