Question about 1989 Buick Regal

1 Answer

Leaking oil I have a Eunos V500 car and started with droplets of oil splashing(from the front of the car) on the garage floor and now like it like big drops of oil. I am a little concern of this as this have not happened before. Is it the gasket or the oil filter or something that may caused this to happen? Can you help me with this question? If I wanted to sell the car and how much would I get if I do so. It is a 1992 Eunos V500 redcolor. Kailiya

Sound like its leaking oil at the oil filter or the oil pump drive gear O-RING leaking.by you having a distributorless ignition system you have a oil pump drive gear.in place of the distributor.that where most of the time you get a oil leak at.the O-RING.

Power steering fluid leaking?


Robert, Use a strong flashlight and check from top and bottom. If you need to jack vehicle to check underneath the engine, please secure it with jack stands (don't rely on the floor jack or your vehicle's tire change jack). If you don't see evidence and have not lost any fluid then there is nothing wrong. Any visible "wetness" is acceptable as long as it is not dripping or running when engine is running. Check all your fluids and make sure it is serviced per manufacture recommendations or your owners manual. Check it again after one month, if the fluid level is fine, then the car is fine. Also place a cardboard on the floor where you park overnight and see if you have any evidence. Sometimes during oil changes, depending of filter location, droplets are common as well as from the oil pan drain plug during removal. As long as it does not elak after installation, you are fine.

1996 chevrolet impala ss oil leak rear of engine


Is it engine oil or transmission fluid? Is it driven often or does it sit in the garage? If engine oil, then possibly the rear seal is leaking into the bellhousing as you drive and then draining on the floor after you stop. If ****** fluid, then possibly front seal on ****** is leaking. If car sits for long periods of time the input shaft seal can allow fluid to leak past the shaft. This usually will fix itself when driven. Can't promise it will fix itself permanently. Will not be an easy fix if either seal needs replacing (or cheap).

The car leaks oil only when engine runs, intermittently,a trail of oil yesterday as moved out of garage ,today nothing .looks to be comming from valve cover,which happens routinely with these engines but...


the oil could be leaking from valve cover and sitting in a bottom engine cover(plastic covers on bottom of car) and oil trail when move, will leak more when engine hot as oil gets thinner and easier to escape. Would replace gaskep asap or will cover engine in black sticky muck which is not nice to try and clean and engine oil is not the best thing to get off your garage floor.

Ford escape 2002 leaking small droplets of oil from front of vehicle, how do i stop that?


you have to clean everything up, and see where, exactly the leak is coming from (this is not always very easy), then repair that. Start with the uppermost leaks.

Leaking coolant checked radiator hoses and


take a look at the waterpump, these cars have problems with waterpump leaking, take caution, the waterpump is driven by the timing belt,if that belt pops or jumps due to coolant leaking on it and causing it to fail,then you will have a costly repair,i belive its about $4,000 to fix, it will cause cylinder head valves to bent, have this coolant leak check asap.

Started engine on cold morning and left running to defrost screen...... came back 15mins later to find engine oil all over floor......


Either the oil cap was left off, or there is a really bad leak somewhere.

Look at the engine for signs that oil is splashed everywhere and the cap is on. If the oil cap is on and there is splatter everywhere, there is a leak in the upper part of the motor. If not then the leak is most likely lower.

Fill the engine up to the full level on the oil dipstick, start the car with the hood open and watch for the leak. Be ready to turn the car off quick if it starts to leak out real fast. If this is the case, have the car towed to a repair facility. You do not want to drive it!

Oil leak, between and forward of the axel line


If the problem started right out of the blue, it might be wise to check the oil filter. Some times when turning the filter on a small leak in the canister can happen. Where did the oil land on the cardboard?

Clear Oil leak on Mitsi Mirage 1989


could the clear oil actually be water?. if it is leaking out in the area around or behind the passenger side front wheel on hot days, it is probably water from your A/C, system. it has an overflow or drainage pipe, as the process of cooling the air dehumidifies it and produces water. just a guess though
