SOURCE: Ford Windstar oil leak

I had the same problem. It was very simple; the oil filter had developed a leak, and needed to be replaced. Cheap. Worked perfectly.

SOURCE: After replacing valve cover gasket with dry fel-pro gasket,

Your new gasket has tabs that make it easy to set in place; the tabs hold the position properly on the cylinder head. The gasket also has the rubber coating to establish a tight seal between the cylinder head and the the valve cover, even if there is slight damage or warping. Proper torque for the valve cover bolts is between 50-100 in-lbs., which is about 8 ft-lbs for a maximum.

If you have the gasket properly set, and proper torque on the valve cover bolts, you should not leak.

If you still experience a leak after double checking the gasket and the bolt torque, I would replace the valve cover itself. You will find several at most any salvage yard, and probablly will cost you $10.00 or less for a used valve cover.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

I have a 2003 freelander that smells of petrol whilst driving ive heard of this problem before but nwhat is the cause

Hi Paul:
The smell of petrol means that there is unburned fuel somewhere.
That is not good, and could be very bad, especially if it ignited.

I sincerely hope that you are not smelling this inside the vehicle while you are driving it.

Without running through a list of every possibility that I can think of, I'll make some suggestions.
1) When you smell the petrol, immediately pull over and shut the engine off. Lift the hood to access the engine and try to find the leak. Look at hoses, connections, fuel delivery components, gaskets. Look for wet spots, stains, wash marks where petrol may have moved dust and then evaporated.

Patience and a bit of time, and you should find it.

I'm also guessing that this is an external leak since you did not mention lack of power or backfiring.

Another possible is a failed hose connected to the fuel tank, or a faulty tank vent.

It's up to you. You're now detective Sherlock of the Petrol patrol.

How to replace a valve cover gasket on a 2003 Chevy trail blazer

Pull off the valve cover, clean it like new, then use a silicone sealer on the valve cover only, place the new gasket on it and let it set-up (around 1 hour) then bolt the cover back on the head. If you are in a hurry, skip the sealer set-up time and just make sure that the gasket does not move out of position when you put the cover on the head. You can use the truck right after the repair.

Ford mondeo 2005 1.8 petrol car keeps overreving when put in neutral goes up to 2500 for 4 seconds then drops down to normal idle

Sounds like a vacuum leak. Check all hoses and if they are good may be a manifold gasket weeping

Hi. What parts are needed to replace engine oil leak? Valve cover, front timing cover gasket?

An oil leak can come from from several different places.

It could be from a valve cover, oil filter, oil pan, dip stick, oil drain line, oil pump, and a few other places.

I'd try to see where the leak is coming from first. Clean your engine bay and grab a bunch of lights.

Light up the engine bay and see where the leak is coming from. Once you find the leak, you'll know what to replace.

Replacing everything is just spending needless money. I'd also suggest checking to make sure you're not over filled.

2003 Taurus 24V DOHC, have engine oil covering oil pan. I thought is was the oil pan gasket, mechanic did not seem to think so. Put dye in and trying to find the leak source. Is there a common leak problem...

Oil leak can be attributed to several factors.
1. Gasket failure.
2. Uncontrolled Crank case pressure Failure.

Tighten both the valve cover and oil pan bolts.
Replace the Positive Crankcase Ventilation Valve and vacuum line.,

This is a valve causes a negative vacuum on the engine while its running, As to say if it had a leak in a valve cover it should not be leaking while its running, only when the engine it turned off.

Hope this tip guides you in the correct direction to solve this problem.

Petrol mk3 mondeo sometimes starts 1st time other times does'nt

Lots of potential causes - but I would eliminate the following:
1. Insert the ignition key and place in the "on" position....then off.
2. Next go to "on" and then start position.

Note: if the car starts every time that you do the above, you may have a dirty ignition switch contact or rusty wire connection at the injector solenoid (which provides a momentary rich mixture to enable starting) It is the electronic equivalent of the accelerator pump on a carbureted engine.

If no difference is noted, you may have a faulty solenoid - which will need to be replaced.
