SOURCE: oil leaking on top of engine..is it valve seals?

Might be the oil cap too. They only cost a couple of bucks a the part store. You also might want to check the crank case ventilation hoses on top of the valve cover. I'm pretty sure that those are a dealership part, ( which can be kind of pricey), but you can usually find stuff like that real cheap at a junk-yard, just make sure they're not damaged before you buy them.

I have a 1998 volks beetle .. oil light has come on .. i checked oil .. says dry .. i add'd some .. then says fine.. then 10 min later says dry .. and there is no apparent leaks that i can see .. is...


If your dipstick reads dry, do NOT run the engine or drive it until you find the leak-there is no reasonable explaination for that condition, it is leaking somehow, period. If you insist on driving it, it will damage or destroy the engine in a very short time-get it checked out (have it towed), it is going to be a very expensive problem if you let it go.

Will a leaking axle seal cause the engine oil level to drope ?


No the two systems don't have anything to do with each other and use compeletly differant oils .How ever what you should check for is a leak from the engine because when your driveing engine oil gets blown back to the rear and may look like its leaking from the axle when the oil is realy comeing from the engine .Check your engine oil make sure its up to the correct level also check the PCV valve thats posivite crankcase ventalation . The next time you drive it when you get home take a peice of cardboard and slide it under the engine from the front .If the engine has blowen a gasket this will give you an idea of where the oil is comeing from . But the rear axle seal has nothing to do with your engine oil pressure . Good luck with it

2002 grand am does not leak after driving, but I wake up in the morning to a huge puddle of oil.


SOUND LIKE FRONT CRANKSHAFT TIMING COVER SEAL OR REAR MAIN OIL SEAL LEAKING START ENGINE LET IT IDLE SEE IF YOU SEE OIL DRIPPING UNDERNEATH CAR LOOK FOR OIL LEAK AT TIMING COVER OR AT REAR OF ENGINE WHERE REAR MAIN SEAL LOCATED. CHECK ON TOP OF ENGINE INTAKE MANIFOLD AREA WHERE OIL PUMP DRIVE GEAR IS.O - RING AT THE OIL PUMP DRIVE GEAR WILL CAUSE LARGE OIL LEAK.OIL PUMP DRIVE GEAR IS LOCATED WHERE THE DISTRIBUTOR USE TO BE LOCATED.KEEP EYE ON OIL LEVEL IN CRANK CASE.KEEP PLENTY ENGINE OIL ON HAND UNTIL YOU FIX.I WOULD FIND LOCATE PROBLEM QUICK AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE OIL LEVEL GET TOO LOW ENGINE WILL SEIZE UP LACK OF OIL..

When you add tran fluid it makes your oil level go up


If you mean engine oil level, impossible! If the transmission oil seal or the torque converter were leaking the oil would run out of the bell housing. There is no way it could force its way into the engine, it would have to half fill the bell housing and then get through the rear crankshaft seal.

I have a 2005 Honda Civic coupe, i only have heat when accelerating and the car is running hot, I have replaced the thermostat, the car is still running hot, I had a test done on head gasket and the air...


there are only three places for coolant to leak.external leak to the outside of the motor,internal leak like a head gasket causing the motor to burn coolant(white smoke out the tailpipe),internal leak(coolant leak into the motor oil.)you say that the head gasket was tested and it was okay then this takes care of burning coolant,however it could be leaking into the motor oil.check the oil level and condition.I would think the tech would have checked this,but check it just in case.if the oil level is good and not thick or white or milky looking then this is not the problem.you could have a leak externally like a hose leaking a frost plug leaking,water pump leaking,this should be checked out by having the cooling system pressure tested a carefully inspected for leaks

My brake, slip and VDC indicators stay on.


Check brake fluid level, add fluid from sealed container if needed.

Also check for leaking rear axle seals. Look for oil on the inside of rear wheels.

What is the capacity of the transfer case and exactly what fluid do i use


GM Full-Size Trucks 1980-1987 Repair Guide

Transfer Case - FLUID RECOMMENDATIONS
The type of lubricant used in the transfer case varies with model year and type of transfer case. Refer to the list below for the type that applies to your truck.

1980
Conventional transfer cases require SAE 80W or SAE 80W-90 GL-5 gear lubricant.
Full time systems use SAE 10W-30 or 10W-40 engine oil.
1981
Conventional transfer cases require DEXRON®II transmission fluid.
1982-85
All transfer cases require DEXRON®II transmission fluid.
1986-87
All transfer cases except the K30/35 series require DEXRON®II transmission fluid.

For fluid recommendations for the K30/35 transfer cases refer to the owner's manual.
LEVEL CHECKS

fb6e8b4.jpg
Fig. Model 208 Transfer Case

Check the four wheel drive transfer case lubricant level every 4 months or 6,000 miles.
  1. With the truck parked on a level surface and the parking brake firmly applied, remove the filler plug from the rear of the transfer case (behind the transmission). Be careful not to take out the drain plug at the bottom.
  2. If lubricant trickles out, there is enough. If not, carefully insert a finger and check that the level is up to the edge of the hole, EXCEPT in full time four wheel drive cases should be 1 /2 in. below the hole.
Lubricant may be added, if necessary, with a funnel and tube, or a squeeze bulb.



DRAIN AND REFILL
Part Time Systems
No intervals are specified for changing transfer case lubricant, but it is a good idea for trucks that are worked hard or driven in deep water.
  1. With the transfer case warmed up, park on a level surface and apply the parking brake.
  2. Slide a pan of a least 6 pts. capacity under the case drain plug.
  3. Remove the filler plug from the rear of the transfer case (behind the transmission). Remove the drain plug from the bottom.
  4. Wipe the area clean and replace the drain plug.
  5. Add lubricant with a suction gun or squeeze bulb. Conventional transfer cases require SAE 80W-90 GL-5 Gear Lubricant.
  6. When the lubricant level is up to the bottom of the filler hole, replace the plug.
Full Time Four Wheel Drive
The full time system requires oil changes at regular intervals, according to the amount and type of work done by the unit. Trucks used for normal on-off road work should have the transfer case oil changed at 24,000 mile intervals. When used for heavy duty work, trailer towing, snowplowing, and the like, the interval should be halved to 12,000 miles. If the truck is exposed to extremely dusty or muddy conditions, the oil should be changed at 1,000 mile intervals.
The transfer case oil must be hot before changing. Drive the truck until the engine has reached normal operating temperature, and park on a level surface.
  1. Slide a pan of at least 8 pts. capacity under the case drain plug.
  2. Remove the filler plug.
  3. Remove the lowest bolt from the front output shaft rear bearing retainer cover, and allow the lubricant to drain. Be careful; the oil will be hot. There may be a drain plug. If so, remove that instead.
  4. Remove the six bolts on the left (driver's) side of the case which secure to P.T.O. (power take-off) cover. Remove this cover and allow the lubricant to drain out.
  5. Remove the speedometer driven gear from the upper left rear corner of the case.
  6. Use a suction gun to remove as much lubricant as possible from the case cover location and the speedometer gear location.
  7. Install the speedometer driven gear, the P.T.O. cover, and the lowest bolt or drain plug.
  8. Add approximately seven pints of oil through the filler plug opening. The proper oil to use is 10W-30 or 10W-40 engine oil.
  9. Check the fluid level and add sufficient oil to raise the level to 1 /2 in. below the filler plug opening. Replace the plug, and wipe the surfaces of the case and skid plate to remove any excess oil. Drive the truck and check for leaks.

I really hope help ypou woth this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

Tune up check list for 59000 miles



Here is the check list. This should also be in your owners manual.

Inspect Brakes and Traction Control
Drive Belt

Fluid - Differential
Inspect front/rear axle fluid level and add fluid as needed. Inspect constant velocity joints and axle seals for leaking. Replace Engine Oil

Change engine oil and filter as indicated by the GM Oil Life System (or every 12 months, whichever occurs first). Reset the indicator. Never drive the vehicle more than 16 000 km (10,000 miles) without and oil and filter change. The system will not detect dust in the oil. If the vehicle is driven in a dusty area, be sure to change the oil every 5 000 km (3,000 miles) or sooner. Fuel Filter

Oil Filter, Engine

Rotate Tires
