I have a 2001 Mazda tribute v6 3.0l. I have oil leaking from passenger side next to oil filter under my belts and dripping down my oil pan. Just replace my oil pan gasket or is it something else?


thats inline with oil pan use mirror and flashlight to see exact location and usually not a coincidence to have leak after changing gasket if not tightened down right ,could have shifted or damaged awhile being replaced

2005 Mazda Tribute... Similar to a few unsolved issues. Burns excessive oil, ever since I got it. Every 1000km or so, 1/2 to 3/4 liter of oil. No leaks, emissions are okay. Also fuel economy is not...


Sounds like the Valve Guides are **** out oil is seeping down valve stems and burning in the cylinders. Some times STP oil treatment can slow the oil down because of its thickness. I have put about a cup of dexron2 transmission fluid in my oil to swell up the O-ring seal on the valve stem to stop this problem and a cup will not hurt anything. Like i have put STP in Automatic Transmissions to correct leaky valve body problem work like a charm.Can give you 3 to 5 more years of life to a transmission.

My 2001 Tribute has a very rough idle on cold start, and sometimes won't idle w/o manually using the accelerator.


Replace the gaskets on the intake manifold. My tribute was doing the same thing. Replace all spark plugs at the same time since the manifold is already off. They found small amounts of oil in my first 2 valves and plugs, but other 4 were dry. My car idles great and runs great now and it was a cold morning today!!! Also go ahead and replace the idle control valve if you like. I had to replace this first in the car with idle problems. Charge for replacing gaskets and plugs and cleaning it up in the cylinders.... $250.00 and it was well worth it! I have a side mechanic and do not go to dealers or other shops in town.

Dealer said aluminum oil pan was becoming porous 2002 mazda tribu


Not likely. My 2001 Tribute developed a leak at the oil pan gasket about two years ago. I got the gasket replaced, but it was expensive. I would take it to another shop and get a second opinion.

I was told there are two oil pans on Mazda Tribute 2001 (upper & lower) 4 cylinder manual. I have an oil leak do I replace both?


There are two gaskets, one is between the lower pan and the upper pan, and the second is between the upper pan and the engine. You only need to replace the gasket that leaks. If both are leaking, replace them both. To find out where the leaks are, raise the car, get underneath, and look closely all around the oil pans to see where the oil is coming from. Use a flashlight if necessary. You should be able to trace any leaking oil upward to its source.

The oil pan gaskets are not necessarily the only sources of oil leaks. Check to see if any oil is coming from behind the timing cover, and look for oil coming from the valve cover gasket.

The idle is staying high or sticks and when coming to a stop wont go down


make sure there are no vaccum leaks, if no leaks found then may have a bad idle air control valve,

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.

Problems with cold engine


It is the head gasket. Have that replaced and you will be fine. You have an air leak. I was told by the mechanic at mazda that the anti freeze eats away at the gaskets. CRAZY, but it works. I still have an issue with my 2001 Tribute revving while in park. Its always something.
