Rear end is leaking fluid. With the LS2 Vettes this is a common problem with them. The seal has gone bad on the main housing. Easy to change yourself and can be fixed yourself

My 2008 Corvette has ticking noise when it is on a cold start,but is quiet after warming up.


COULD BE A HOT SPOT WHEN YOU SHUT IT OFF THE OIL BURNS OFF AND THE COLD START IS THE DRY LIFTER AND ROCKER CONTACT OR THAT SPRING IS WEAK UNTIL IT HEATS UP AND EXPANDS TO CLOSE THE GAP BETWEEN THE ROCKER AND THE VALVE STEM

Where can I look for the leak that floods the passenger side floor?


Look for places where two or more body panels meet. They're most likely secured together with spot welds and filled with sealant at the factory. You may have to look in the channels that are under trim surrounding a window or other glass. I had have 2013 Altima that pooled water in the rear seat floor area nearly 2 inches deep due to a poor seal between two panels in the engine compartment (firewall) just below the front windshield. Water followed wiring channels and contours in the floor pan (without getting carpet wet) to the lowest point - the back seat floor. So - don't overlook *anything* Good luck!

Driver Side Leaking


I had a problem like this before. Carpet was soaked after the winter. There is a few spots to check out here. Your window seals could be dried out and allowing water to creep past them. You may have a rubber grommet missing from your fire wall or under the vehicle. Mine was a rubber plug right under the feet area of the floor board and was missing. If your car is relatively new, I would make sure your car door and window seals completely when it is closed. Check it out next time at the car wash. If everything is dry, hose it down real good so it will cause the leak to appear. Follow the leak to the source or where it begins to get wet first. That will reveal your problem.

1996 chevrolet impala ss oil leak rear of engine


Is it engine oil or transmission fluid? Is it driven often or does it sit in the garage? If engine oil, then possibly the rear seal is leaking into the bellhousing as you drive and then draining on the floor after you stop. If ****** fluid, then possibly front seal on ****** is leaking. If car sits for long periods of time the input shaft seal can allow fluid to leak past the shaft. This usually will fix itself when driven. Can't promise it will fix itself permanently. Will not be an easy fix if either seal needs replacing (or cheap).

Oil leak onto garage floor either coming from oil pan gasket or oil filter not sure wich one


Clean the filter and pan with a spray cleaner, run engine for a few miutes.
recheck oil leak.
Probably is rear main seal leaking, very common trouble.
If not leaking much, keep drip pan under car to keep floor clean and drive on.
Most cars do leak after they age a little. The black line in the middle of the road is oil leaking from cars. Very common.

98 ls blazer only leaks oil when it sets for a few days .changed the oil parked in garage few days later i had 6inch puddle on floor this happens every time it sets on blow back on trans .the oil is in...


your rear main seal is probably bad. the reason it only leaks after sitting awhile is that the oil in the motor has finnaly all drained back into the pan and has hit the level of the breach in the seal
