1993 MARK VIII HAVE OIL OR TRANS LEAK ? MINUTE I START CAR, DRIVERS SIDE. HAVE TO SHUT IT OFF. LEAKS BAD. CANT SEE WHERE ITS COMING FROM ANY IDEAS


Would recommend to steam clean complete engine compartment, to include the bottom.

Next, top your fluids and place clean towels or rags. Start your car until leak is present. With flash light Che k where from. If fluid is redesh in color, it's transmission fluid. If it's dark brown or black, engine oil.

Check bottom of oil and transmission pans for possible cracks or damage.

I have a 2004 Toyota highlander leaking oil, oil light comes on. Could it be the rubber rings?


a 2004 toyota highlander V6

this should be your engine type
The 2GR-FE is a 3.5 L (3456 cc)

if leaks are that bad
always check the engine oil level before you drive off

fixing oil leaks on motors
degrease whole motor top and bottom

start with replacing the oil sender it may be the cause of the oil light coming on
after degrease
lay cardboard or paper under the car
take out for a drive and park over the paper over night

this pin points most of the oil leak locations
leaks from a V6 motor
rocker covers/ spark plug tube 0 rings.engine seals
cam seals
front and rear engine seals leak often
sump gasket can leak

if oil consumption or light on continues
can be a failing engine oil pump
or worn main bearings giving low oil pressure to the whole engine
you could be burning oil from worn piston rings
or hardened valve stems

a mechanic can fit an oil pressure gauge to the motor when hot
to check running oil pressure to confirm low oil pressure

if engine is worn out

it is possible to fit a lower mileage used motor to your highlander
its often cheaper than and engine rebuild

Oil leak. fluid is flowing off the bottom of the oil filter. what are the possible compromised sources?


Look this is how you diagniose engine oil leasks, First have the engine pressure washeed top and bottom, get it clean, then go to a parts store and install a bottle of die that glows under a balck light, drive the car a week and have a shop put it up on a rack and inspect the engine for arear's that glow, then you have a good chance of fixing the leak the first time around.

Engine light came on and coolant leak


You don't want to overfill your engine with oil. I'd recomend you change your oil and put the right amount in it, because chances are, if you are that low, it was time for an oil change anyway. As for your coolant leak, check your hoses and radiator, if you don't find anything look your engine block over for antifreeze residue. Usually when your water pump wears out and starts leaking it makes a big mess.

Oil light comes on when travelling at highway speeds after cooling down it shuts off


Stop driving it until you have this checked out!
Low oil pressure is making the light come on.
The engine might seize up on you and that's big bucks.
Or course having the oil light come on may be big bucks as well. It means the bearings might be worn out and you'll either need to overhaul the engine or get a replacement engine - or new car!

2000 Chrysler Cirrus engine jerking while in reverse, drive and also while sitting in driveway. Seems like while in drive/reverse car wants to shut down. Check Engine light on, was flashing for a minute...


the valve cover gaskets were leaking oil around the spark plug boots making the boot swell and causing a voltage leak. the engine misfired and stop lights. i did a tune up with new cover gaskets,plugs, wires, cap and rotor and she runs like a top. vrooom, vrooom!!
