Peugeot 106 1.1l slight oil leak

Went on a 250mile trip (first one the cars been on in 2 years) and at the end of the trip noticed a small oil leak has started. Might sound stupid but what is most likely to be causing it? A quick look and it looks like the Cam or crank shaft seal could be it. any ideas without looking?

First place to look is the tappet/rocker cover. Easy to take off and easy to fix with some gasket sealer or a new gasket.

SOURCE: 3rd door seal leak

From what I understand (and have experienced) the S-10 has a tendency to need the pins and bushings replaced early. Mine started with moisture in the cab, but the problem became apparent when there was a breeze around my door frame. I confirmed the diagnosis with my "car guy" and have replaced my pins and bushings. The mystery moisture and wind-noise is now a thing of the past. More recently I've had to move on to the next disgustingly popular issue... the broken third door handle.

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

Ford Freestyle - 2006 - Limited. After a 130 mile highway speeds 70 to 85 MPH the vehicle emitted OIL fumes enough to fog the back of the vehicle with a thin film of carbon black and oil file.

It could be a number of things.
Bad head gasket.
Worn rings.
Valve seals or guides or both.
Do a compression check of the cylinders that should help pinpoint the problem.
Hope this helps.

Peugeot 207 1.4, small oil leak from underneath, added engine stop leak, how long before it stops leak?

oil leaks from underneath can come from front crank shaft seal --rear crank shaft seal --oil filter--sump gasket---power steering ---leaking rocker cover gaskets ---leaking oil pressure switch.--transmission seals. I suggest that you have the engine professionally cleaned and then put it on a hoist while running to see where the oil is from

Car cut out while driving lose power

hmmmm tough one without putting it on a diagnostic machine, I would suspect the crank sensor or the distributer issues not sure of the year of your car, whether it is carby or efi, if carby model, then possible blocked jets, {recon it}, i would get it on a diagnostic reader to be more accurate, hope this helps a bit. Good luck.

Engine over heating

It sounds like you have a head gasket that went bad and needs to be replaced, have a compression test done on all the cylinders and if your luck it may just be a intake manifold gasket when bad and needs to be replaced. Note; that the antifreeze is corrosive to the engine bearings so try to do more frequent oil changes or have the issue replaced as soon as you can before you end up having to overhaul the whole engine. Good luck and keep me posted and note: Next time you have a small leak, use kitchen black pepper. The pepper will block any small holes in the system and can be cleaned right out with just a simple flush as to the brand radiator sealer will restrict the flow of antifreeze through out the engine's coolant jackets and journals.

Oil light goes on...had a dry stick 4 1/2 qts put in. no oil on ground. after oil change light went on at 70 miles.. on 15 secs then off for 5 miles then on again 15 secs--- off 4 miles--off 3 miles- off 2...

if it's not going onto the ground, and it's not being burned, check the positive crankcase ventilation and the exhaust gas recirculation valves for oil seepage...also check your air filter, if its got oil on it replace the pcv valve.
