2002 Nissan Maxima , what would cause oil to leak

yuo can get oil leaks from many areas , i would suggest getting the entire engine and gearbox pressure cleaned then park on a piece of cardboard and then you will be able to locate the leak easier, as its a large oil leak i would suspect it will be some where around the sump gasket ,crank shaft seals,cam shaft seals for example, but will need the engine clean to really identify the area good luck

Oil on undercarriage but none on the ground

It may have been leaking around the oil filter. I would keep an eye on the oil level.

Ran over something in the street, cracked lower oil pan had it repaired that was 3 days ago...the engine light just came on I checked there is oil in the car however I do believe there is an oil leak

Because of the material used in the construction of the sump and the fact that the oil impregnates into the surface of the steel any welding repairs to the sump are going to be "iffy" at best as the material cracks around the weld area.. I imagine the sump was removed to carry out the weld in which case I would be looking at loose sump bolts or the gasket was over tightened and has squeezed out allowing it to leak. Check that the oil sender wire hasn't fallen off and is shorting out on the engine

I'm presuming an oil leak?

Check around the sump where it bolts to the bottom end. Visually inspect the sump for holes (altho you would be losing oil pretty severly if there is). Check around the oil filter, might not be sealed right.

One way to narrow the leak location is get a sheet of card and put it on the ground under the engine bay overnight. It should show you where the oil is dripping from or what its dripping off.

Also Accents have a habbit of dropping oil level very quickly when they are getting close to requiring an oil top up.

Having an oil leak at the bottom of my camry, not the oil pan gasket what else could it be.

There are three other area's that can leak, here they are in order of how often they occur
1.Engine Valve cover gasket(s) (2 if V6 engine), oil runs down the engine and drips off the pan.
2.Rear crankshaft seal leaking
3.Front crankshaft seal leaking. Oil is blown back by air pressure while driving and rips off of pan.

I have an oil problem I am losing oil and do not know where it is going There is no oil the cement or on the side of the motor

see how dark and oily it is around your exhaust pipe tip. at 11 years old your valve guides and piston rings are beyond their normal service life and oil may getting past them and out the tail pipe.

look inside your air cleaner. old motors often pump oil through the PCV valve into the air cleaner box.

look at the back of the car itself. a bad seal can dump oil which turns into a fine mist which then collects as a layer of slime on the back of the car, like road dust.

To make sure that oil leaks are coming from the oil filter, clean the side of your engine, remove all the oil sludge and sump. Then run your engine for an hour, check the oil around the oil filter and the whole side of the engine.
If the oil was found around the filter, it means you have to replace the filter immediately. The oil seal on the oil filter is already done!
Hope that helps you!
Thanks for using Fixya!

Oil leak

You have to differentiate whether the oil leak is from the engine or the tranny. After determining where the source, you must isolate the specific area; timing belt area, the middle-between the engine and the tranny. This can be cheaply determine by placing white piece of paper underneath the engine and observe the droppings of oil. Oil leak repair can be costly-especially an oil starved engine, so isolating the source is essential and tear-down might required.
Due to the age of the vehicle, possible sources are the camshaft seal, crankshalf seal, oil pan gasket, crankshaft end seal,distributor o-ring, and valve cover gasket.
In addition, other oil leaks can come the transmission, and power steering pump and rack'n'pinion. Best to raise the vehicle and inspect undercarriage of vehicle.

Oil leak

hi common fault on these is the oil switch oil runs down the block around the oil filter and down the sump as you are driving along the air draft blows it all over the place so clean it up run the engine and from underneath the car see where it is coming from the only other things on the sump that would leak are the sump plug washer and the crankshaft main oil seal at the rear of the engine it will be the switch best of luck paul

Hi there I had the SAME problem in my 318i. I cracked mine driving over a parking barrier in the road (long story!) Anyway. Take your car to a garage and they will drain all your oil out of the engine and sump area. They can then inject a resin into the hairline crack and once it's all set, they'll put the oil back into your car and you won't have any leak from that area again! try that first before getting a new sump. As the area needs to be bone dry from oil, they draining of oil out of your car and the waiting for the resin to set make it pretty much an all day job. Good luck with it all if you've not repaired it yet.
