Engine is making oil


An engine does not make oil, but it can spill the oil that should be inside. You could have an oil leak, which means that oil will be leaking from either the front or the rear oil seal. The front oil seal is just behind the crank pulley, the one that drives the fan / alternator belt. If oil is leaking from there, suspect the front seal.
If you have oil leaking from the bell housing, that the the bell shaped metal thingy between the engine and the gearbox. you can suspect the rear oil seal.
If you inspect the engine and see oil leaking from the oil pan under the engine, you have a leaking pan gasket. This can usually be solved by tightening the pan bolts, a whole lot of bolts underneath the engine.
Finally, and this is probably the worst, if you see oil around the breather pipe that goes from the valve cover on top of the engine to the gas intake system, you have leaking compression, that means either the valve stem seals are leaking or the compression rings are finished, and you will have to have the engine overhauled, or at the very least have the cylinder head overhauled.
If the rings are suspect, you will also have excessive smoke out of the exhaust when you drive, especially when you accelerate. Check the exhaust for signs of wet oil.

Fan with burn smell when engine switched off


It is normal for the fan to run for a short while (few minutes) after turning off the car to allow the heat in the radiator to dissipate. The time may be dependent on the coolant temperature or it could just be a fixed time (i.e. so many minutes). The burning smell could be a loose belt, but I suspect the radiator fan is electrical and not belt-driven. I think the burning smell could be oil from a leaking gasket. The oil drips onto the hot engine and voila... burnt oil. Not sure what you mean by new (new to you or 2013-14 model), but new cars should not have any leaking fluids. A stuck break caliper could aslo produce a burning smell.

  1. timing cover is leaking oil betwwen cover and block
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Remove the drive belt(s), fan and fan shroud. If equipped, remove the accessory drive belt pulley.
  4. Remove the vibration damper retaining bolt and washer. Remove the vibration damper using a suitable puller.
  5. Remove the accessory drive brackets attached to the timing cover.
  6. Remove the A/C compressor, if equipped, and alternator bracket from the cylinder head and move to one side.
  7. Remove the oil pan-to-timing case cover bolts and the cover-to-cylinder block bolts.
  8. Remove the timing case cover front seal and gasket from the engine.
  9. Cut off the oil pan side gasket end tabs and oil pan front seal tabs flush with the front face of the cylinder block. Remove the gasket tabs.
  10. Clean the timing case cover, oil pan and cylinder block gasket surfaces.
  11. Remove the crankshaft seal oil seal from the cover by prying it out with a suitable tool.

To install:

  1. Install a new seal in the timing cover using a suitable seal installation tool.
  2. Apply sealer to both sides of the replacement cover gasket and position the gasket on the cylinder block. Cut the end tabs off the replacement oil pan gasket corresponding to those cut off the original gasket. Attach the end tabs to the oil pan with sealer.
  3. Coat the front cover seal end tab recesses generously with sealer and position the seal on the timing cover.
  4. Apply engine oil to the seal-oil pan contact surface, then position the cover on the cylinder block.
  5. Insert timing case cover alignment tool J22248 or equivalent, in the crankshaft opening. Install the cover-to-cylinder block bolts and tighten them to 62 inch lbs. (7 Nm). Install and tighten the oil pan-to-cover bolts to 11 ft. lbs. (13 Nm).
  6. Remove the cover alignment tool and position a replacement oil seal on the tool with the seal lip facing outward. Apply a light coat of sealer to the seal and a light coat of oil to the crankshaft. Install the seal on the timing cover.
  7. Apply a light film of oil to the vibration damper hub seal contact surface. Install the vibration damper using a suitable installation tool.

Do not hammer the damper into place as damage may result to the damper or engine.

  1. Install and tighten the crankshaft vibration damper bolt to 80 ft. lbs. (108 Nm).
  2. If equipped, install the crankshaft pulley and tighten the bolts to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  3. Install the accessory brackets.
  4. Install the fan and fan shroud.
  5. Install the drive belt(s) and adjust to the proper tension.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable.
  7. Start the engine and check for leaks
  8. .

Oil leaking out the front of the lower fan belt


If the lower fan belt pulley you are referring to is the vibration damper or harmonic balancer, then that is the pulley that is attached to the engine crankshaft, and that pulley is what turns all the other pulleys on the engine. There is a seal on the shaft behind the pulley -the front main seal. This is what may be leaking oil, and if that is the case , the seal needs to be replaced.
If it is the front main seal, and you are going to tackle the repair, you need to get a Repair Manual for your vehicle and follow the directions for the fix.
