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.

    Does that dura-seal head gasket repair stuff REALLY work?


    I had a blow head gasket on my BMW 6 cyl. and it was blowing white smoke and losing alot of coolant. After doing alot of research I found that all the other brands like blue devil, steel seal, KW and bars all use water-glass. The only company that does NOT USE WATER-GLASS is Dura-Seal. If you have aluminum heads it's very important to use a sealer that can flex with your engine's aluminum heads. The DuraSeal actually stays flexible! So I tried it and it stopped the smoke and overheating. No more coolant loss either. It's been running fine for over a year now. I would reccomend Dura Seal head gasket sealer to everyone... Great product! Also the tech department guys really know what they are talking about...

    The smoke you are seeing is most likely oil seeping through the valve stem seals into the combustion chamber .......

    White smoke coming from tailpipe? Slight knocking noise. 99 Camry.


    White smoke or steam? Smoke is oil buring and steam is coolant steaming. If this is steam, you have a blown head gasket...if oil, it could be either a oil ring problem or a valve seal problem.

    Chev s10 1998 over heating water in oil can i do a quick fix with gasket sealer an still drive truck until i can afford to replace gaskets


    Over the years I have seen quite a number of sealers advertised to repair gaskets etc. There are newer ones out that make the same claims (also expensive @ about $100). Though it is possible that they work, I have no idea for how long. As always, the best cure for a cylinder head gasket problem is still to actually do the repair.
    Regardless of how you correct the problem, make certain that you drain the oil and filter or you will be looking at a bearing failure shortly.

    Mx5 mk2.5 slight engine oil leak.


    Can you tell us more?
    How many miles on the car?
    Which side of the engine area? Drips after you park etc?
    Oil ever low? If so how often do you ad oil?
    Any visible oil on engine and bay components under hood?

    likely areas for oil leaks may include depending on model and make:
    Oil pan gasket seal.
    Oil pressure sending unit.
    Oil filter installed dry or over tightened at your last oil change.
    Oil drain plug loose or plug gasket needs replacing.
    Valve cover gasket needs replacing.
    Crank shaft seals need replacing.
    Distributor seals need replacing.
    RTV gasket sealer beyond expected life and need replacing for other engine components, inspection plates or covers.

    Oil leaking in engine have replaced seal and O rings but still leaks. I am going to scream!


    ok, There are many areas that the oil could leak from. Head gasket, oil pan gasket, rear main seal, front seal, valve cover gasket. You'll need to locate the leak under the car in order to know which one to replace. There is nothing simple about replacing the rear main seal and although he front seal is easier it can still be a problem. Good Luck.
