Oil leak on driveway coming from front of engine


Dear Sir,
Here is the oil leaking Problem Identifying Technique

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket are common.

  • The intake manifold plenum gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption/burning and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.
  • External oil leaks from valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets (front or rear), and the rear crankshaft (rear main) seal area are common. The rear main seal is an unlikely source. Normally, the bearing cap mating surfaces (as well as the sealing surface between the oil pan and bearing cap) are the source for the leaks.
  • Engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from theintake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.
  • If the oil filter casing shows signs of distortion from excessive oil pressure, theoil pump should be replaced.
  • Often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
  • Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

    Oil leakage by the transmission &engine


    Need to inspect closer and make sure the exact place the oil is coming from....Most common places that leak are around valve pan cover which is located on top of motor and in alot of cases can run down back of motor onto transmission or bottom or motor. Another place is the oil pan which is located on bottom of motor. If leaking from either of these you would need to replace the gaskets. Two other places that are common for leaks is the front and rear seals in the motor. Try cleaning bottom half of motor off with a degreaser in the area where you see yhe oil dripping and then you should be able to see exactly where it is coming from. If the leak is underneath where the transmission is bolted to the motor this would indicate that the rear seal is bad. To replace it you will have to take transmission out to do this and if this is the case and your truck has a automatic transmission have that seal replaced also. Yhe reason for this is if you have to take transmission out then you may as well change transmission seal also but remember only if the transmission is a automatic.....hope this helps and good luck....Please rate this post...

    My 97 subaru out back 2.5 liter engine is leaking while driving onto exuast where are these leaks coming from there is a ton of old oil built up under engine


    It is either the rear main seal or the plastic tubing in the rear of the motor. My 96 does this also. you may be able to fix it or slow it down with oil stop leak that works to lubricate the seals. Most likely the only way to stop it is have the transmission or motor pulled and repair it that way. Very common Subaru issue for many years now. take care.

    My automatic transmission shifts hard,slips and sometimes overdrive dont work ,other times its perfect. i put 1/ 2 qts.of fluid per week but has no apparent leak


    Are you checking the fluid in neutral? You need to be.You need to pull codes.The leak is most likely the transmission cooler line at the radiator end.

    Im looking at a 95' dakota. what is the most commin repairs in this vehical and maintenace


    i have had 2 Dakota's a 4 cyl "LACK OF POWER" but never had a problem.
    the other A 318 V8 14mpg but was a beast 4wheel drive the only problem I had with the v8 was when it rained water got on the dash bord,,,never figured out where it came from,
    BUT I'd buy a 98 or newer one...
    PROBLEMS LISTED BELOW!!

    Air conditioner: If the air conditioner gradually stops cooling and/or the airflow from the vents decreases, the computer (PCM) may not be sending a signal to the compressor clutch relay to cycle off, which causes the AC evaporator to freeze up. (1991-95)

    Automatic transmission: If the transmission will not engage when first started, chances are the torque converter is draining down. Chrysler will correct the problem by installing a check valve. (1993)

    Automatic transmission: If the transmission won't upshift in cool weather, it is probably due to defective cast iron seal rings in the governor drive. (1992-94)

    Engine fan noise: In warm weather, the fan makes a roaring sound. Dodge will replace the fan, the fan clutch, and, on max cooling systems, the radiator cap. (All)

    Exhaust backfire: Exhaust backfire and/or a popping noise in the exhaust may be caused by a defective Powertrain Control Module. (1994-95)

    Oil leak: Rear main seals on 2.5- and 4.0-liter engines are prone to leakage. To prevent future failures, Chrysler has a rubber plug available that goes in a hole above the starter that protects the rear main seal. (1996)

    Oil leak: Oil leak at the filter on 3.9-, 5.2-, and 5.9-liter engines is likely due to a warped adapter plate. (1995)

    Oil pump: Oil pump gear wear results in bucking and surging when the engine is warm and lack of lubrication when the engine is cold. (1992-93)

    Rough idle: Because of a problem with the idle air control motor, the engine idles rough, stalls at low speeds or when decelerating, especially in warm weather. (1992-94)

    Suspension noise: Front ball joints wear prematurely forcing relacement of lower control arm as well. Replacement joint with grease fitting is now available. (1990-96)

    Transaxle leak: Automatic transmission fluid leaks from the speed sensor in the transmission. (1994)

    Water leak: The roof seams leak water that seeps down behind the dashboard onto the floor. (1993-95)

    Severe oil leak happen while driving. Engine still runs but can't locate where leak is coming from. Any Ideas or solutions beside paying 100s of dollars.


    Common area for oil leaks would be from the oil filter, oil line to the cooler attached to the radiator and the other place that is most common would be a faulty oil pressure sending unit.
    When the oil pressure sending unit goes bad, oil will leak from the unit. It's made of a metal fitting and plastic top and the plastic will tend to crack after a few long years from the heat making them brittle.
    Inspect your oil pressure sending unit and replace if any sign of oil, You can pick up the unit at Auto Zone and can give you the step by step instructions to get the job done with common tools. They would also be glad to help you find where the leak is coming from free of charge.
    Thank you for using fixya and if it's your transmission that is leaking, don't drive it if the level is low and take note transmission fluid is flammable and will catch fire from the heat of the exhaust.

    I have an oil leak in my 95 thunderbird v8, not the oil pump as far as I can tell, new oil filter, dont think its the sending unit, need a copy of a diagram that shows where all hard lines for oil are...


    that has to be transmission fluid is the fluid that is leaking red ?
    coming from a tranny cooling line to the radiator.
    you motor oil is in your block and held in your oil pan. no where it can leak at that rate except thru the oil sending unit is gone ( missing )

    1996 t bird leaking oil from the filter adapter to block?


    It's not easy to get at. There is a gasket in there. I've done a few of these. It's called an oil filter adapter gasket.
