SOURCE: mitsubishi l200 animal 2006 leaking oil from steering rack

Its most likely a seal on the power steering rack by the age it will most likely just be a seal they are about £7 in UK but possible the rack is goosed although I doubt it, please be careful using the car as it can lock the steering in position, and,,,, well you get it.

SOURCE: What type of engine oil

Hello ianandserena, you both have very nice names. This is simply the opinion of one person, but, if you do your oil and filter regularly, say between every 3,000 -5,000 miles, it doesnt really matter. If it were me, I would buy the cheapest on the shelf.

If your wanting to know the oil type, like 10-w-30, 5-w-20, I believe your car calls for 10-w-30, they do have a special blend for high mile cars that you may consider if your car has more than 100,000 miles.

Good luck my friend!

SOURCE: my oil is leaking out

It could be several things. But you will need to do some things to pin point where it is coming out. I would recommend steam cleaning your engine. Or at least washing it, to get the oil off. After the engine drys it will be easier to spot where the leak is with a clean engine. Ihave had good luck using kitchen flour sprinkled on the suspected areas to find out where the problem is. But you make up your own mind. The front seal is a possibility, but the valve cover gaskets, oil cooling lines, etc. are all possibilities. Chrysler vehicles seem to develop oil leaks at the valve cover gaskets far more often than the front seal.

Engine noise when starts

Sounds like you need to run a thinner oil maybe. The oil is not pressurizing the engine components quickly and you hear was is called engine tappets. The rockers on some cars have what are called hydraulic lifters. They fill with oil after startup and then the sound goes away. You may think about having the lifters replaced soon, which are not too expensive. Be sure your vehicle has hydraulic lifters also. If your mechanic is any good he will know if it does or not. He maybe waiting for it to cause engine damage also, and knowing you will return to him to have it repaired also. Be careful.

Had new distributor put 3 days ago , 200 miles , had a slight tick sound so was watching oil carefully, noticed was leaking worse than before, so I changed the oil to put new filter on, drove 4 moles...

  • Hi, for oil to leak that fast you have got a massive leak. The ticking itself could be from low oil. First check the oil plug (where you drain the oil) on the oil pan with will be the bottom most part of the engine. It is possible the plug is not holding tight, the gasket may be old, torn or just plain missing. Sometimes people will strip them oil plugs. When this happens the pan has to be tapped a little over and a new, slightly oil plug installed.

  • On the oil filter housing are oil cooler line that have to hold a lot of pressure. Follow those lines to see if they are leaking oil.

  • I don't see a front seal leaking leaking quite that bad. A valve cover I am not sure would leak quite like that either. Your oil pan gasket could leak like this though. When you check the oil pan plug look strait up to all them little bolt holding the oil pan to the lower part of the engine. If leaking is noted then snug them bolts up or have them snugged up.

  • You may have to throw a piece of cardboard on the ground and crawl underneath with a flashlight and get a better eyeball on the leak. What ever the leak it is massive and should be repaired before driving or you could loose to much oil and seize your engine. The ticking. in my opinion, is the engine telling you it is very low on oil as it is.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

2008 mitsibushi endeavor using 2 to 3 or more quarts of oil every 3000 miles and dealer says this is normal and I know it is not.

Your right, this is not normal oil useage for any engine. The oil is either being burned in the combustion chamber and exiting the tail pipe, or it is leaking some place.
