Have you narrowed it down to what it is? Engine? Battery? Depending on how old your car is, it may have given up.

SOURCE: oil leak on manifold passenger side - v6 4motion

Get a can of Gunk and clean the engine according to the directions there (please do read them), with attention to the area around where the oil leak is.  Once you get the motor squeaky clean, you will be able to trace back to where the oil is coming from.  It may be running down the underside of a hose so you will need to look carefully.  You can do all this in the driveway.  You will probably have to let the engine get to operating temp before it will start leaking.

SOURCE: Vehicle is 1999 T/C Limited (3.8L, V6) Leaking in 2 places.

the hoses from the transmission to the gadiatro is leaking. The timing cover might be leaking but acording to what I found from the waterpump is not behing the timing cover. the hose coming off of the waterpump is leaking. If this helps this is how you remover the waterpump.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove the serpentine belt.
  4. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Remove the right front wheel and lower fender shield.
  5. Remove the water pump pulley.
  6. Remove the five mounting bolts and remove the pump from the engine.
  7. Discard the O-ring. Clean the O-ring sealing surface and inspect the water pump for damage, cracks, seal leaks, and loose or rough turning bearings.

SOURCE: Leaky valve cover valve on passenger side on 1996 Nissan Pathfind

no such thing as a valve cover valve. you have a leakey valve cover and you replace the gasket, if you do one do both they come in a kit. also to do that job you have to do the intake gasket and plenum gasket as well. about $150.00 in parts maybe 5 hours labor

SOURCE: making a ticking noise under right side valve


The ticking noise that you are hearing is a valve lifter which may have a lubricating problem.

The only way to be sure is to check the valve clearance and the one valve which is out of the clearance value will be the one which is making the ticking sound.

In most case's you need to remove the valve lifter and dismantle then clean it and relube it with a vavle lifter lube then refit and adjust the clearance.

Let me know if you need more information.

2003 cadillac cts key stuck in ingnition no power to ignition or dash

Its the BCM mounted on the passenger side valve cover. Yes the body control mod is on the motor. The coil pack starts to fail, then emits a higher then norm electromagnetic fields and takes out the BCM bolted directly on the top of the passenger side coils. Under the column there is a small plastic screw that you remove then push up on the button to release the key.

2000 cadillac deville driver side won't open with the key

1) Key turns but dose not unlock door. This means that the rod that goes to the back of the lock has came off. This also means that is the reason door is not unlocking with the remote as it pops the lock rod inside the door which pushes the lock open.
2) Key does not turn lock at all but works passengers side door. This means that the locks has been changed in the door, but that doesn't sound like the problem as you say the remote doesn't open the drivers side door so more than likely the rod has came off the back of the lock

Its a 99 Oldsmobile silhouette... last feb i had a new intake manifold gasket put on. Then that june it just died.. Well my father in law has been looking at it.. Took the starter to advanced and its says...

I hate to say it but it sounds to me like it jumped time, or may have broke a timing belt. in that engine this would allow the pistons to actuate(pushing the oil out of the spark plug holes). but the cams are not turning so the engine will turn over but not fire. have him pull a valve cover, and see if the valves are moving as the engine cranks if they don't its probably a broken timing belt. if they do move, the timing belt probably stretched and jumped time at high speed causing the engine to no longer run. the backfire during cranking is probably due to the fact that the fuel delivery system is still functioning and the spark is erratic enough due to the lapsed timing that the ignition of the fuel in the combustion chamber(cylinder) is happening while the exhaust valve is open and is forcing the combustion out through the exhaust. i hope this helps

Old gas turns to varnish which can cause the valves to seize in the valve guide,bend push rods or even bend the valves themselves.NEVER put old gas in an internal combustion engine.
