SOURCE: Leaks oil looks like from valve cover

You have to remove the spark plugs cables and remove the four nuts that you see when the cables are removed.

When the four nuts are removed, simply raise the valuve cover. When replacing the gasket, make sure you get the gromets as well. Those sometimes get worn or crack since they are more exposed than the value cover gasket. Make sure that you clean the cover from oil and replace the gasket with no use of silicon.

Good Luck.

SOURCE: leaking valve cover gaskets

The problem is over tightening.

If you over tighten your fastners you will sqeeze your gaskets too much and they WILL leak.

You can use black silicon sealant LIGHTLY but you don't really need it. If you have the V6...the torque on them nuts are only 80 in lbs each

make sure they are tight
could be time for head gaskets
make sure the old gasket from the old filter came off the block sometimes they come off old filter and stick this causes a leak due to improper seal.

SOURCE: 1984 F150 302 Had oil pan gasket and both valve cover gaskets

If you have oil coming down between the transmission and the engine where they meet your problem is with the rear main seal. It seals the back of the crankshaft so no oil comes out. Over time it tends to leak especially if the oil changes haven't been done on time or you live on dirt roads. Where the transmission and engine meet there should be a metal shield but it may be already removed. Just pry that back and see if there is oil. Depending on the color tells your rear main seal for the engine or the front seal on the transmission. Hope that helps.

Sounds like the valve cover gasket, clean off all the oil on the engine with a pressure washer or a steam cleaner and then drive it and recheck for the leak, that way you can pin it down for sure.

Oil leak on driveway coming from front of engine


Dear Sir,
Here is the oil leaking Problem Identifying Technique

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket are common.

  • The intake manifold plenum gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption/burning and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.
  • External oil leaks from valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets (front or rear), and the rear crankshaft (rear main) seal area are common. The rear main seal is an unlikely source. Normally, the bearing cap mating surfaces (as well as the sealing surface between the oil pan and bearing cap) are the source for the leaks.
  • Engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from theintake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.
  • If the oil filter casing shows signs of distortion from excessive oil pressure, theoil pump should be replaced.
  • Often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
  • Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

    I was told there are two oil pans on Mazda Tribute 2001 (upper & lower) 4 cylinder manual. I have an oil leak do I replace both?


    There are two gaskets, one is between the lower pan and the upper pan, and the second is between the upper pan and the engine. You only need to replace the gasket that leaks. If both are leaking, replace them both. To find out where the leaks are, raise the car, get underneath, and look closely all around the oil pans to see where the oil is coming from. Use a flashlight if necessary. You should be able to trace any leaking oil upward to its source.

    The oil pan gaskets are not necessarily the only sources of oil leaks. Check to see if any oil is coming from behind the timing cover, and look for oil coming from the valve cover gasket.

    Is it difficult to replace all the oil gaskets? I have a leak and it seems to be getting worse.


    Im assuming you mean the oil pan gasket? Oil pan gaskets are very time consuming to change on most vehicles, expecially front wheel drive because of the space. First crawl under and locate the oil pan (don't confuse with the bottom of the transmission lol). On my front wheel drive vehicle, I had to disconnect the AC lines to get to it (what a headache that was). Getting access to the oil pan is the hardest part but once you have access, the process is realitively easy. Drain the oil first or you will be taking a bath. remove the screws, clean the area the gasket is going to be touching, replace gasket and re torque the bolts to mfg. specs in sequential order as to not bind or pinch the gasket. Also, is it leaking from the valve cover? Valve cover gaskets are much easier to replace than oil pan gaskets.

    Mx5 mk2.5 slight engine oil leak.


    Can you tell us more?
    How many miles on the car?
    Which side of the engine area? Drips after you park etc?
    Oil ever low? If so how often do you ad oil?
    Any visible oil on engine and bay components under hood?

    likely areas for oil leaks may include depending on model and make:
    Oil pan gasket seal.
    Oil pressure sending unit.
    Oil filter installed dry or over tightened at your last oil change.
    Oil drain plug loose or plug gasket needs replacing.
    Valve cover gasket needs replacing.
    Crank shaft seals need replacing.
    Distributor seals need replacing.
    RTV gasket sealer beyond expected life and need replacing for other engine components, inspection plates or covers.

    Are you sure its the oil pan most leaks come from the valve cover gaskets up above. check the corners of the valve covers. If the pan needs re-sealed you will have to remove the flex pipe.

    Oil leak


    If by head covers you mean valve covers this is an easy fix just install a new set of valve cover gaskets, as this is a fairly common problem ( valve cover gaskets ). Just unbolt the valve covers and remove them then scrape off the old gasket and install the new ones and bolt the covers back on. This is a pretty easy job and the gaskets are less than $ 25.00. If it is the oil pan gasket you will needto drain the oil and unbolt the oil pan and remove it then clean off the old gasket and install the new one.
