    How large? Does the oil just pour straight onto the ground? I had a conrod come undone and go straight through the sump on my old Toyota. I had to get it towed and the only solution was to get a reconditioned engine. Cost me more than I originally paid for the car. Lucky I love the old tank :) Did your leak slowly get worse or was it after a kabang style incident?

Usually leaks at the front or back of the engine are from the oil pan. Sometimes you can slow the leak, or possibly stop it, by tightening the small bolts around the perimeter of the oil pan. These are probably 7/16 or 1/2 inch bolts. You didn't go into much detail about what kind of leak you have, so I am assuming it is a very thin puddle of engine oil. If it is automatic transmission oil your car will stop moving eventually.

Doesn't it seem odd to you, that two mechanics can't seem to get
involved enough to try and at least sound like they know the business
their in?

You didn't say what leaks,where it is,how,when,etc

Did they say the leak is fixable?

The EGR Valve,hoses & such, would be a good place to start

Why didn't they do that?

Oil & fluid leaking on starting.


Dear leaking fluid on starter, I suggest that you inspect your engine fluid resevoirs and assess from the lowest one to see if its fluid matches the fluid that has leaked onto the ground. i suggest parking on a large piece of paper or plastic to collect your sample of leak fluid. that is where i would begin. in my opinion, sounds like a leaky valve cover gasket or coolant system leak, ie, waterpump, heater hose. rad hose.....

What are signs of of bad intake gauset on a 99 chevy blazer


depends on whether its leaking coolant or air, since both run through intake. if leaking coolant, you will see coolant leaking from either the front or rear of the intake itself. it can also leak into the engine, causing coolant to mix with the oil. if its leaking air, usually a small leak will present more when the engine is cold, with rough running or high idle. a large leak will run rough all the time, but should be able to hear air hissing if large enough. a vacuum leak from the intake will sometimes present as a check engine light, with codes p0171 and/or p0172, depending on whether the leak is on one side or both.

Likely what you are looking at is where the coolant is dripping, not where it's coming from. I have no idea why if you have an external leak, that it somehow is getting back inside there to get into the oil.(pretty much impossible)
Best guess is that you have a bad water pump that is beginning to leak. If in fact you have coolant in your engine oil as you say you do, most likely cause for that is a blown cylinder head gasket.
If you actually have no idea what is going on there, have a good shop look at it. Leaks lead to overheating which can cost you an engine.
