Don't use 20w50 that is too heavy an oil for that motor. the most i would use is like a 10w40 and that is a last resort. your valves need adjusting or the hydraulic lash adjusters may be gunked up. there is a chemical called auto-rx (search web) that could help you out. just follow the directions for it. the only other oil seals i can think of are oil pan gasket, oil filter gasket, rear main seal, valve cover gasket.

Good morning, I have a 2002 Renault Clio 1.4 16v, There is an oil leak on the main crank pulley side, above the crank pulley, I cant see where the leak is, can some one help?


the most likely causes are cam cover seal. camshaft seals or the front cover/crankshaft oil seal the only way is to clean it all off ie a jet wash or solvent then run until you can see the relevant area. the most leaks in that area are caused by the camshaft oil seals on that engine

I have 2004 honda civic I changed the fel-pro oil pan gasket and the crank shift seal but it's still leaking any ideas


the 2.2 liter engines had a problem with the balance shaft seal blowing out Honda sells a plate to retain the seal in place. Remove lower cover and look at left side of engine below power steering pump. you can see the seal pop out.

The leak seems to be coming from the shaft holding the pulley


Presuming you are talking about an oil leak from behind a pulley? All shafts as they exit the engine, have an oil seal fitted in the case and supply a tight seal to the shaft, if oil is leaking the seal is worn and needs replacing. depending on what the pulley is driving (cam belt), it could be a big job.

Engine oil is dripping from the timing belt side of my 2000 accord after idling for about 5 minutes. Happened after cleaning the throttle body. Any help, ty


Cleaning your throttle body is irrelevent to the oil leak behind the timing cover. There are 5 seals that can leak behind the 2000 accord timing cover, the oil pump, crank seal, cam seal, and the 2 balancer seals. Most of the time its the front balancer seal that has popped out and will need to be replace and have and retaining kit install. Its actually very common on that engine. I highly recommend taking it to a professional to get repaired because timing the 2 balancer gears with the cam and crank is very tricky even for the mechanically inclined. Since the timing belt and the balancer belt has to come off and is probably soaked in oil, I recommend replacing those as well.

1988-1993 ford festiva leaking oil around the crank pulley... could the oil be coming out of timing chain seal... are could it be a the seal on the crank shaft.. if so would i need to removle the engine to...


This sounds like the crank seal, the engine doesnt have to be removed, in order to get to seal is like replacing the ttiming belt, and once in the timing belt i would replace the crank and cam seals, also do the timing belt, and maybe the waterpump, you will need to remove the crank pulley and then the timing covers then align timing marks for timing belt before ou remove it, with timing belt off the crank pulley then slides off the crankshaft and the seal is behind it, the cam shaft gear unbolts and the seal is behind the gear, once the gears are off then you will be able to remove the seals from the engine,heres a few diagrams to help. good luck and i hope this is helpful,60d826b.gifca916fa.gifcb2cb5a.gif

R & r info. on front seal and crankshaft seal. Car is leaking lots of oil up to two quarts per day


Front crank shaft oil seal is located behind the crank shaft pulley (A.K.A. the harmonic balancer). If you look from under the car at the bottom pulley on the engine. It will be very wet and oily. This is not an easy job to replace the seal for the inexperienced.

Oil is spiling out from the side of the engine


you have a leaking seal. Possible valve cover, cam, crank, balancer seal. If its coming from within the timing cover, you will need a timing belt and cam,balancer, crank seal replacement. It's also recommended to replace the waterpump while performing this repair(if it hasnt been done recently).

2000 Mitsubishi Galant, EA3A 2.4l motor. Oil leal


it could also be the oil pan gasket, or the manifold gasket. if it's the manifold gasket, when you remove the manifold to replace it, take the time to clean out the mixing chamber. it'll be filled with gunk and cleaning will improve gas mileage.
