SOURCE: Hard starting engine and undetermined leaking of engine oil

Hi Venz

You should check that you are getting power to your glowplug busbar. (thats the alloy bar that connects the power to all the glowplugs).

1.Get a circuit tester and connect the clip to negative earth -
2.Get someone to turn the ignition key to "on" while you hold the tester on the busbar. It should light up for around six seconds I think.
3. If this happens all good than the next step is to check that the glow plugs are turning off correctly while your driving or operating the vehicle.

Also remove and inspect the glowplugs they should be just a nice brown/carbon colour...
They should have no chips out of them or damage of any kind.

These 4D56 engines have a glowplug timer that almost always stuffs out. Then they cause the glowplugs to stay on almost the whole time while driving which stuffs them quickly...

Let me no how you get on
I have a few easy ways to fix this problem!!!

SOURCE: stearing box oil was leaking

The steering box oil leak and the timing belt problem may or may not be related. Oil will deteriorate belts. Timing belts should be changed from about 60,000 to 80,000 max. Most people neglect changing there timing belt (yours was probably over due). The overhead cam performance, inexpensive price of the automobile, and the room to have a larger motor in a smaller car all hinge on the timing belt design that you benefit from. The only down fall of this design is the fact that in higher performance versions of this engine , if the timing belt breaks the pistons will hit and bend/break the overhead valves. That is why manufacturers give you a breakdown of when you should be performing scheduled maintenance in your owners manual or warranty manual. Depending on the cost of the repair sometimes it is cheaper to replace the head with a complete assembly from a salvage yard than pay some one to rebuild the one you have . If your funds are limited I would price the repair both ways. A used head assembly might be less than the cost of the valves. your sweat equity can save you money.

2002 lincoln ls v8.. i marked on my resivior tank with a marker before going to work when i got home after work i checked it and it was about half inch below

Look in the radiator after its completely cooled down for signs of oil . It will look like brown sludge. Next pull out the dipstick and see if the oil is black . If the oil is brown and not translucent, then there's water in the oil. If you have any of these indicators,you have a serious internal engine problem. If you have ever overheated your engine, the water is being burned bu the engine. Not good.

Where is freeze plug on 1995 geo tracker

old post.
This is really a suzuki G16 engine question
thats ok,
The G16s are used on Suzuki's and Trackers
Vitara's , Esteems, no others world wide.

I have all the photos and books on those cars.
real books and all parts lists. on them , graphics tool.
the freeze plugs (core plugs on all over.)
IN 1996 only one engine, G16b.
But all G16 blocks these are the same.
sides on all G16 base blocks.
2 left side 1 above filter, one just to rear of that, they are huge.
have to be blind to miss left side, (left means same as left car door)

the problem here is there are 2 engines in 1995, then one in 1996
the heads on both engine are NOT THE SAME>
the head is 8v and 16valves heads
and the 16v has freeze plugs in the top ,next to the cam. inside under valve cover !!!.

why not say where the leak is so we can narrow the search. or state the JOB?????????

i have photos of all parts in any G16.
there are no freeze plug in any 8valve head.
but the 16v yes !!!
the 16v head small inside plugs, if leaking turn the engine oil to milk chocolate fast and worse of driven. (just undid worst)

the blocks are the same, both engines, not pistons,
there are no front or rear engine block freeze plugs only side plugs 4 total.
and sure the right side under intake man will be hard to see. look under car right side to see em.
2 left easy to see and 2 right harder.
the right engine block has 2 freeze plugs one in easy view center , under intake man.
and one tucked behind that water manifold that can leak too.
now the last plugs
the 16valve head has a front freeze plug behind the cam cog wheel. and none on the rear of the head.
so 1 front and 3 inside, top.
My guess, G16b has 8 plugs total.
G16a has 4.

things that go POP in the night (cold night)
the rear water outlet fitting (head) does explode every time one runs this head on pure water, frozen, ask my how I know that, and what clueless girl did that,, heheheheheheheheh

When I put water in my 97 Tahoe it starts leaking heavily from the caddilac converter and around the muffler and exhaust pipe... What is this a sign of cracked head? Blown head cracked block? Intake...

Sounds like more water than can get out a crack. Check if you have a frost plug on the block has come loose and leaking. There will be about 3 on each side of the engine block, located just below where the exhaust manifold mounts to the block. It's a pretty easy repair, provided there is enough room to work where it is located. Sometimes a smaller such plug will be found on the rear of the engine. The coolant must be leaking externally and running and dripping off your exhaust .

Oil leak between oil pan and transmission.

Try running some of that high-mileage engine oil next time you do an oil change (it helps to swell engine seals slightly). If the problem clears up or is reduced, then it's likely that the rear main oil seal is starting to leak a little. The rubber seals will harden up and shrink a little with age.
I would also powerwash the entire area clean, so that way any leak will be easier to monitor and pinpoint.

Have an oil leak, and can't find out were it's at

feel aroung the back of the cylinder head. bet there is a missing casting plug. looks like a freeze plug thats in the block, and about 2 inches in diameter. if one of the 2 are missing it will leak under acceleration. a new one can be put in without removing to much stuff. cab air inlet, vaulve cover, the rear engine harness, then use an 18 inch prie bar to press ina new one with some sealant
good luck

Motor Oil leaks from 1999 Honda Civic EX

make sure they are tight
could be time for head gaskets
make sure the old gasket from the old filter came off the block sometimes they come off old filter and stick this causes a leak due to improper seal.

Oil leak

Sounds like the High Pressure Oil Pump mounting O seals. See if the soundproofing under the pump is soaked in oil to be sure.
