Water pump is, going or gone out. Best make sure the water is replaced daily if your going to drive it. Or the headgaskets next, & the trucks done. Make sure the water is IN THE RADIATOR" not just the overflow or reservoir container. Ive only had 1 stop leak, help get me {in emergency} from point A to B, but it didnt last long. Thats the powdered aluminum silicate? in a small 3- 4 inch tube. $1.99? You add it to hot water, & add to radiator.

99 barina oil leaking from behind plaststick cover covering the belts


this is from cam and crank seal failing or a hydraulic belt adjusted leaking
unfortunately it means a new timing belt as oil destroys belts in quick time
From experience , I would say that the belt was changed on the cheap and the seals were not replaced to prevent this happening for the life of the new belt

Oil leak front engine timing chan


1995 Tracker would have a timing BELT. Normal oil leak points (in order) on a Suzuki G16 engine are the distributor base (rear of motor), valve cover (top of motor), front main seal (behind lower timing belt cog) cam seal (behind the upper timing belt cog) and rear main seal. (behind the flywheel). I'd suspect the front main seal or cam seal. I use foot power to help find oil leaks.

My wife drove my 1992 Honda Accord for approximately 4-5 miles with oil light on. Turns out the car was leaking.leaking its oil from timing chain area. Is there any engine damage?


Possibly, but I'd replace the leaking gasket/seal.
Also note, the Honda uses a timing belt (not a chain), and you don't want oil on the belt. If there's a chance the belt has gotten oil on it, you want to take the timing belt cover off, remove the belt, and clean all the oil covered parts. The oil can wear out the belt as well as cause the belt to slip timing

Do the timing belt cover on a 1996 camry have a seal or gasket that can leak oil, mine seems to be leaking for around that area. If so how to replace the seal/gasket?


The timing cover itself does not seal any oil from leaking. It is just a cover to prevent debris from getting into the timing belt and ruining it.

To find the oil leak you will need to remove the timing cover and inspect the seals behind the cam gear, crank gear, and oil pump drive gear, and the oil pump to block seal. The most common leaks on these are the cam gear.

1989 tercel major oil leak passanger side. how do i change the oil pump gasket? do i need to change timing belt too? N where is the unit located? is it under the cover between the valve cover and oil pan?


The oil pump is located under the black timing cover , however your leak is likely the lower main seal under that cover as well , your oil pump will be on the upper right side , you should replace them both and the timing belt while your there considering the cost of the parts , it is good insurance you wont lose your belt while you still own your car and have to go back in again , it is not hard to do just be patient , also when you loosen off your timing belt tensioner '' to remove the belt ''dont forget to re tension it after you replace it
