93 Dodge Spirit hit curb Hit curb on back driver side tire. Nothing wrong with tire but right after I hit the curb, my car started to shake and slow down. It turned off completely when at a stop. Oil...

the smoke came from the spilled oil leaking onto a hot surface ( manifold) No problem there. The oil light coming on was probably from the oil surging away from the oil pickup in the sump momentarily allowed the oil pump to suck air hence a drop in oil pressure. To have all that happen, the hit on the curd was substantial. so I thinking bent axle flange and broken engine mounts could explain vibrations and engine shaking

All Mornings I need to Warm-up the engine until the Temp is completly in the middle. , if I drive the card almost does'nt move and spills Transmission oil, When thw engine is warm up runs Ok.

This is the sort of fault that is very difficult to diagnose from a post on here without my dirty hands under the bonnet ,but from the sound of it either you have the wrong oil in the auto gearbox like its been filld with manual gearbox oil or the brake bands and clutch are worn and the particles are in sump going around with the oil clogging up the gauze filter inside the box so drain the oil out and drop the sump of the gearbox then clean the filter and refill with new oil ATF type transmission oil and see what happens ,if it works of sorts but still playing up then trade car in quick

If you did the sump drop; you should also do the PCV #6 upgrade. I would'nt look at the oil pump yet. You may have a bad oil sensor. Did you remove the valve cover to see what it looks like? you could have a clooged breather port. Did you do an engine flush before you dropped the sump? If you remove the VC start the engine to see if oil squirts out then you will know if the pump is good.

Hi, I have a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am, 2.2L, 4cyl. Oil pan gasket has gone bad, do we have to replace the entire oil pan? Or can we just find a gasket somewhere? Any thoughts on where to get either?

Here is the problem, the gasket is all you need as long as there are no holes in the pan, sometimes they hit things besides raccoons and dent the pan, you can get a gasket no problem, here's the problem, not all pans slide out for you to work on without lifting up the engine about 6 inches, there is an oil pump that sumps down in the bottom of that pan, and you can't get the pan out without hitting it especially when there is a motor mount, cross member in the way. You might be able to get the pan down about 2 inches, get the gasket cleaned off without spilling too much **** inside the sump, then stretch the new gasket around the outside of the pan and get it in place, use no adhesive, no silicone, nothing, dry. Good luck, and Hope this helps.

I can not locate my car gear fluid

If the vehicle is an automatic, the oil check/ filler plug is on the bottom of the gearbox sump. To check oil level jack vehicle up, keeping it level. Start vehicle from cold and remove 17mm allen key plug on bottom of sump. Oil should just start spilling from aperture at an oil temperature of 30 degrees Celsius. If not top up fluid until it does start spilling. Temperature important as oil expands as it heats up.

Incorrect level. Check level at operating temps and while the engine is running. By sump and stainer you meant that you removed the oil pan off the car and cleaned the pickup tube of the oil pump? I'd suggest hooking up an oil pressure gauge so you'll know which part of the engine is starving oil and setting the warning.
