Most likely you oil leak is coming from your main seal . They wear out and get hard and brittle you could also have valve gaskets leaking and the oil is running down the engine and onto the floor.

SOURCE: my 1997 pontiac sunfire is overheating. There is

there is a steel pipe that runs across the motor there, they are prone to corroding and leaking, you might get away with cutting it and bridging with a piece of hose but the best bet is to replace it. We have been lucky a couple of times and found a car in the wreckers that had newish ones fitted.

Severe oil leak


It could be a bad oil pressure sending unit, valve cover gasket, timing chain cover gasket or oil pan gasket. If there's white smoke coming out of the exhaust it could have a blown head gasket but it's not a common problem with that engine.

1997 2,4 sunfire cylinders 2 3 misfire. coil has been replaced, plugs & fuel pressure are good, and cad converter has been dropped..was melted almost shut but now fixed. what do i check now?


I would suspect a head gasket or head problem.. the catalytic converter being plugged causes heat build up in the engine and overheating in the engine can cause failure of the head hasket or head itself. The reason your cylinders are misfiring could be water leaking from a water port in the head and into the cylinder which would cause the cylinder not to fire..there might be some steamy vapor coming coming out of the exhaust if that is happening

I have a 97 pontiac sunfire gt i was dirveing the car home last night and my oil light came on apon opening the hood there was a huge amount of oil on the engine on the driver side of the car i had someone...


refill the oil and see if you can get the engine to turn. Try turning the crankshaft pulley with a socket. If the engine will not turn, it will have to be rebuilt. If you can get it started, locate the oil leak and get back to us. Even if it will start, it may need to be rebuilt--we'll have to see how it runs. :-(

GAS IN ENGINE OIL


The engine is running way to rich, that would be the only reason for gas in the oil, things that cause a rich mixture are leaking fuel injectors or to much fuel pressure, have these checked by a shop, also do u have a check engine light?
