95 camaro oil leak causing smoke


You need to determine if it is your oil pan, oil sender switch, oil filter, etc. dripping oil onto your exhaust causing the smoke, or if it is coming out of the exhaust itself. If it is dripping onto the exhaust, deal with sealing the affected area. (new oil pan gasket, sender switch, etc.) If coming out of the exhaust, indicated worn piston rings or valve seals.

Camry csi 2000 oil leak between engine and transmission


Lots of Camrys do this.

The oil will typically leak from the rear main bearing seal between engine and transmission, but that will appear at the bottom of the joint line, and will not reach the exhaust. This leak is expensive to fix and is usually left as is.

A leak from the cam cover gasket can drip into the exhaust.

The other typical leak is from the distributor shaft o-ring seal. This appears at the top of the join line between engine and trans, and can blow back onto the exhaust.

Something under my hood is smoking. Help please.


Probably just oil dripping from an old valve cover gasket onto the exhaust manifold. The one bolt in your video looked grungy with oil, etc. Just check the oil level over a week or so to gauge oil loss. If it's negligible, you've got a 'smoky' car. Otherwise you could try to firm up the valve cover bolts, they do loosen over time. Be careful- there is a tightening sequence and they can't take too much tightening or they break.
Another reason could be that during an oil filter change, oil spilled onto the exhaust manifold, in that case it'll resolve itself with time and heat. Good luck.

I have a 1999 Chrysler 300m 3.5 that is leaking oil. There is no obvious source from the engine, though it is possible. The car overheated last year and I had the dealer replace water pump and timing...


CK- Try a set of Valve Cover Gaskets. It cannot leak from the front cover area because it is where the timing belt rides and there is no entrance into the engine EXCEPT the front CAM SEAL... Remove the cover and look toward that seal behind the cam sprocket. If so it is also leaking down into the front cover and beyond. But look at the Valve cover gasket first, since you mention that source.
Auvedersein!!!

Sometimes i smell a oil odor from my vehicle


Check for a valve cover leak (top of engine) If it's leaking, oil usually runs/drips down onto exhaust giving you that odor

The oil light is on. I check the oil stick and its has the recommended amount. When you step on the gas, the light turns off. I noticed it smells burned oil; must be from an oil leak that probably drips...


The dash light indicates oil pressure. When idleing the pressure drops too low and and light comes on. As it revs up, pressure increases.. light goes off.
You should go here and read about low pressure. Too much to copy and paste here.

The small leak onto the exhaust maybe more than just a nuisance, it is a fire hazard. Potential to catch fire. Clean off the COLD header and front pipe with a non flamable solvent cleaner. Also the engine case around the area. You may find the source of the leak.

Oil leak. Burning oil and leaving spots on the ground. Bad burning smell form the oil. Cant see any source from below.


If this is one of the front wheel drive v-8 models, there is a problem with the rear engine seals on some years. The seals open when the engine is hot and allow oil to drip. As the engine cools, the seals rejoin so the leak hides. Sometimes, all it takes is to retorque the existing sealing surfaces.
It may also be valve cover gaskets. The fan and motion of the car will cause these to run the dripping oil along to the rear of the motor like a rain gutter, then onto the exhaust and ground.
