SOURCE: oil leak in a 98 plymouth breeze 2.0

I've had a 1990 Acclaim, a 1990 Shadow, and a 1998 Breeze, all have a head gasket leak. The Breeze was the only one to have oil leak and it was on the rear of the engine. I'd guess that's your problem.

I have a 2004 Toyota highlander leaking oil, oil light comes on. Could it be the rubber rings?

a 2004 toyota highlander V6

this should be your engine type
The 2GR-FE is a 3.5 L (3456 cc)

if leaks are that bad
always check the engine oil level before you drive off

fixing oil leaks on motors
degrease whole motor top and bottom

start with replacing the oil sender it may be the cause of the oil light coming on
after degrease
lay cardboard or paper under the car
take out for a drive and park over the paper over night

this pin points most of the oil leak locations
leaks from a V6 motor
rocker covers/ spark plug tube 0 rings.engine seals
cam seals
front and rear engine seals leak often
sump gasket can leak

if oil consumption or light on continues
can be a failing engine oil pump
or worn main bearings giving low oil pressure to the whole engine
you could be burning oil from worn piston rings
or hardened valve stems

a mechanic can fit an oil pressure gauge to the motor when hot
to check running oil pressure to confirm low oil pressure

if engine is worn out

it is possible to fit a lower mileage used motor to your highlander
its often cheaper than and engine rebuild

I have a 1987 chevorlete nova 1.6 liters it has a small oil leak I have to put oil in it ever now it's seem like it's coming from the front left side

is the 1.6 liter a six cylinder or slant 6 cylinder by any chance. if not. look for fuel pump location, is this where the oil dripping. or cover that has bolts that have a cover there, if so the gaskets for the cover or the fuel pump gasket needs replacing., try crawling down there when the car is running and see if it linking from the oil pan toward the front cover of oil pan. look where the timing chain location it on the front of motor, and the fan maybe blowing the oil over there. or it could be the vavle cover top cover where the lifters are located, the oil can be linking from there and running down the motor, you will idea the bad gasket remove the bolts, clean off oil, old gasket material, new gasket sealant and gasket sets, bolts down, lets setup few hours, refill oil levels, and everything should be okay.

Hi I have a 1999 2.5 diesel Toyota Hiace. For the past year it has been leaking oil what seems to be around the head,towards the front. The van drives ok and doesn't overheat or lose water. Have taken it...

The oil galley is in this area and the leak is probably from oil pressure and a gasket tension problem. A proper head stud re-tension may help but the fix most probably willbe a new head gasket

I have a 95 blazer thats leakin tan like oil can u tell me whats that problem its leakin on drive side

Hi :) Tan colour oil is water and oil mixed together or greenish tan is antifreeze and oil That sounds like a head gasket leak coming from the left bank of the motor.Check the dip stick it might be showing up in the oil too.Head gaskets are around $60.00 plus labour as long as the head is not warped or cracked.

Since having the head gasket replaced on my daughters 1990 Toyota Cressida we have been having a problem with oil leaking from the head. Apparently this is due to the screws holding the head down coming...

In my humble oppinion this is on your mechanic.There is no reason why a properly done job should leak that amount of oil.If those bolts are backing off they have either not got the right torque spec or they have over torqued the bolts and stripped the threads which is why they keep coming loose.If this is what has happened no amount of gaskets or locktite in the world is going to fix this.In addition did the car overheat because of the original head gasket. If so your head may be warped allowing oil to seep out.Try having the head decked or find another one from the wreckers.Regardless your mechanic should make this right ,I know I would! Good Luck

Oil leak

if the leak is actually coming from the head gasket the only way to repair it is to replace the head gasket which involves removing the engine, pulling the valve covers off and much much more... probably not anything your going to want to do in your driveway... if you arn't losing any oil or coolant and have no check engine light on, i don't imagine that it is a very big leak at all. i would continue to drive the car as usual and just watch the leak- if it gets worse you should have the heads done. just remember to check your fluids... it can be very costly to put head gaskets on.
