Question about Cars & Trucks

My 95 accord all of a sudden leak oil dump out to almost empty. I thought it could've been 4m the oil pan gasket, if that was the case the oil wouldn't drain to empty unless it was the main oil seal.

    Bad oil filter gasket or loose? Maybe you bumped the oil plug? You should be able to tell where it comes from with that bad of a leak. don-ohio

    That is a good answer Don, and it should be in the main answer box. This one is for requesting further information, like when posters write 'how do I stop it leaking'.

SOURCE: 94 ranger,replaced rear main seals,replaced

There is supposed to be a washer on the drain plug. It's either plastic or copper. It's either missing or more likely embedded with dirt or grit and won't seal properly. Simply pick up a new one when you do your next oil change and replace it then. Always wipe the oilpan off around the drain and clean the drain plug and washer before you re-install them. Hope this helps.

Car is dumping oil at front making a sqealing noise like its an oil pump


first check fluid levels --power steering--oil--transmission --if power steering low or out pump will sequel look for blown hose or seal----if oil is low or empty than look under around oil filter [hole damaged or blown gasket ] spraying on belt causing sequel if not filter than trace oil leak possible oil pan damaged or gasket crack or head or valve gasket-----if trans low or empty look at pan- gasket ,or damaged check trans cooling lines to radiator-----these are your leak areas under hood your oil pump is internal in oil pan and you usually dont hear it

I smell something burning, thought it was electrical but see its is dripping oil from the pan?


Fix the leak, might just be the oil drain plug, or could be the pan gasket, in which case you would have to loosen and drop the pan low enough to replace the gasket.

Tranny leaking fuild


No way to tell over the net. There are 10+ places where tranny fluid could leak from. You need to powerwash the car and then run it for 20min and get a more specific place where the fluid is coming from. And maybe we can help you better. Possible gasket, hole in trans pan, could be a line or at the radiator or hole in the trans or even a seal at the axles!!

2003 Taurus 24V DOHC, have engine oil covering oil pan. I thought is was the oil pan gasket, mechanic did not seem to think so. Put dye in and trying to find the leak source. Is there a common leak problem...


Oil leak can be attributed to several factors.
1. Gasket failure.
2. Uncontrolled Crank case pressure Failure.

RECOMENDATION:
Tighten both the valve cover and oil pan bolts.
Replace the Positive Crankcase Ventilation Valve and vacuum line.,

INFO: PCV
This is a valve causes a negative vacuum on the engine while its running, As to say if it had a leak in a valve cover it should not be leaking while its running, only when the engine it turned off.

Hope this tip guides you in the correct direction to solve this problem.
