SOURCE: oil leak coming from around water pump?

Oil travels when it leaks, the most common cause is the cam chain tensioner to the right side of the engine at about the same level as the water pump. You have to remove the bracket holding the power steering pump to gain access. A new seal is required there. Be careful not to undo the entire tensioner, this is spring loaded. Just remove the 13 mm bolt from the centre.

SOURCE: oil leak on 2005 -2006 new model passat

well this is an expensive repair as such because of the time involved,a reputable garage would check the clutch and gearbox spigot shaft as a matter of course but the seal can only be reached by removal of everything ,if its just a small drip then have it done as and when the clutch needs replacing is the best advice i can give,adding a leak sealer for engines could help as it makes the seal soft again but if the end of the crank is worn then no ,but it could work and often does.and its not that expensive if it saves you a lot of work for now.As for mileage well treat it as a guide only as mileage tampering still goes on and you will never know weither its the garage or a previous owner who didnt want to lose money.but make sure you check oil level in gearbox in case its leaking out of spigot shaft seal .engine oil smells like engine oil but gearbox oil stinks trust me ,trying to get it when it drips up your arms ,,,,.Also as a matter of course check the engine breather as evan a slight blockage here will increase back pressure in engine causing it to leak oil .How long to remove ,,well about 3 hrs roughly if all the bolts come undone on the suspension an hour or so to change seal and check over maybe evan pushing seal in or out a bit to miss wear on crank if any,rebuilding with a strong lad to assist in alignment and moving about another 2/3 hours if it all goes well with no complications .

Lease check and make sure that you replace with the right seal, that alone should have taken care of this problem. However if the valve cover gasket is loose or bad it will cause oil to leak around distributor are but NOT into distributor. This seal can be easily replaced by loosing 4 10mm bolts on top of valve cover. Contact if you need more help Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

SOURCE: 740 Oil Cap Leaking, Lots of Oil

presuming the oil is coming from around the filler cap..theres usualy a rubber seal around the base, these can become brittle and break,sometimes quite a large piece (1/4 inch) can break off making a fair old leak from the oil splashing around from the cam, replace it with a NEW one, should cure problem

The dealer said my 2004 Chrysler oil sending unit was leaking around the vent tube. I paid $259.00 to have it fixed because the oil light came on too. The light is fixed, but it is leaking again. What is...


it's probably your valve cover gasket leaking. I would take it back to dealership and have them repair under warranty. If they want to charge you for something new, DON'T let them fix anything, look on the internet for a shop close to you with GOOD reviews and have them double check the cause.

2004 525, oil cap is leaking. DOes it suppose to have a gasket?


WHat I found is that there are two gaskets, one to seal the cap and one internally.. BMW sells the filter and O rings in a kit, which cost $13.00.

This fixed the problem.

Oil light fickers or stays solid when braking


I had the same problem on a 2002 Stratus. I also had a Diagnostics Code of P0455(EVAP leak). I replaced the gas cap and this fixed the problem. I don't know what EVAP leak had to do with the oil pressure light coming on, but the new gas cap fixed it.

Low coolant


Hi, I would get other opinions, but it sounds to me like the water is getting into the oil system. This could be via a small leak in the head gasket, in the oil cooler (do you have one?) or somewhere else I can't think of. My best guess is that it is happening in the return side of the oil circulation system where the pressure is lower than that in the cooling system.

I would either read the label on the "stop leak" or speak with an experienced mechanic, or both, before using it. They might suggest running the engine with the coolant cap slack for a while to avoid pressure build up which might blow the stop leak into your oil system, with unpredicatable results.

When you have fixed the leak you might think about changing the oil or at least the oil filter. Hope this helps you a bit more.

Good Luck, D
