Chevy Impala 2000 oil leaking and getting on my belts

I cannot find the location of this oil leak, all I know is it leaks/sprays enough when I'm driving that it's actually getting on my belts and spraying the underside of my hood... Any thoughts as to what it could be and how much to fix it???? Thank you

The front crank seal is likely suspect . A self doer job. But, ckeck the pcv valve first. You may have too nuch crank cas pressure, Even easier to fix if seal isn't destroyed.. might end up doing both.

GM has sent out a recall starting in May 2009 about this problem. They are sending out letters to Chevy owners to get it fixed for free at the dealership.

I have a 2003 chevy impala that is from a fleet of cruisers so it has the extra oil cooler on it. One of those lines are leaking and i'm wondering if i can bypass them and get a oil filter housin


You probably can do what you want but really it is better to have cold tranny oil rather than another oil filter. Better if you repair/replace the leaking hose as the tranny will reward you for it.

Power steering fluid leaking pretty good on 2005 chevy impala. not from pressure line ithink. any clues


The power steering pump is belt driven. It is on the engine where you put fluid in. There are two lines that run from the power steering pump to the power steering rack on the firewall. The fluid can leak from the pump, either of the lines or the rack itself. If you are handy you may be able to repair the problem by replacing the bad part. Wear safety glasses when looking for the leak and do not touch the fluid leak when the engine is running. The pressure is high enough to hurt you. If you ignore the problem you will eventually loose the power assist and may be unable to steer the car. Fix it now!








One line is high pressure and the other is a return line. Check them with the engine off and when you think you've found the leak staret the car and look for the leak. If it sprays like a water hose DO NOT TOUCH THE LEAK. The pressure is high enough to cause serious injury.

My 2001 chevy cavalier has a oil leak and I can't


You can buy a florescent dye to add to the oil and a light to make the dye really shine.
Clean the engine with "brake clean" from a spray can at the oil leak areas ....then run the engine.
Check for the start location of the leak.
Start with a short run time ....... then longer run time if necessary until the leak(s) show.
With or with out the dye ......this brake cleaning method should help locate the leak(s).

Oil leak locations could be...in order of the most common on your car are........valve cover gasket,oil filter,oil pressure sending unit,drain plug,oil pan gasket,crank pickup sensor,rear seal.

2000 chevy impala ls - oil spray under hood inline with serpentine belt


You may have a lower intake manifold gasket leak (or a head gasket leak-slightly less probable) the lower intake can leak onto the serpentine belt and fling oil (and/or antifreeze). The lower intake manifold gasket is usually the culprit here. There is much information about changing it if you are inclined to do it yourself. If not, expect around 800 to 1200 to fix at dealer/mechanic. This is usually accompanied by (but not always) oil in the antifreeze, or antifreeze in the oil...
