it could also be the oil pan gasket, or the manifold gasket. if it's the manifold gasket, when you remove the manifold to replace it, take the time to clean out the mixing chamber. it'll be filled with gunk and cleaning will improve gas mileage.

don't use 20w50 that is too heavy an oil for that motor. the most i would use is like a 10w40 and that is a last resort. your valves need adjusting or the hydraulic lash adjusters may be gunked up. there is a chemical called auto-rx (search web) that could help you out. just follow the directions for it. the only other oil seals i can think of are oil pan gasket, oil filter gasket, rear main seal, valve cover gasket.

May be totally unrelated but I had the same issue on a 95 civic. It has "spark plug seals" that needed to be replaced. Dealer did it for about $250.

Just had replace timing belt now oil leak from cover, new seals water pump ? what went wrong


Sounds like the seal either did not get put on right or else it slipped during assembling the front cover back on. If you are concerned about where the leak is coming from you can put dye in the oil and check for a leak with a black light to make sure it is the timing cover leaking.

Free vehicle repair manuals


yes there is a seal on the cam shaft behind the water pump pully
undo that bolt
you have to undo the cam shaft to get to it .dont drop the lifters
19 nm for the can bearing bolts ..do not overtighten the two rocker cover bolts you can crack the rocker cover or split the cam bearing those bolts tight into
many say not to use silicon but because of the age of the car you need to use the blue silicone on the half moon the rocker gasket and the cam seal ..there are no online repair manuals for the tm-tp magnas ..the rocker covers can warp but rare

Oil leak between oil pan and transmission.


Try running some of that high-mileage engine oil next time you do an oil change (it helps to swell engine seals slightly). If the problem clears up or is reduced, then it's likely that the rear main oil seal is starting to leak a little. The rubber seals will harden up and shrink a little with age.
I would also powerwash the entire area clean, so that way any leak will be easier to monitor and pinpoint.

1999 malibu 3.1 clyd 5 missfire and now random missfire oil light is on lfters very noise runs rough


Have you confirmed there is no oil pressure and the oil level is full on the dipstick?

The oil pump is turned by the oil pump drive located under the throttle body. The oil pump drive is run of from the cam shaft. It is not uncommon for the camshafts to break on these engines.

It may not be a bad idea to pull the front valve cover and turn the engine over by hand to see if all the rockers are moving.

I have a 1999 toyota camry and it just resently started leaking engine oil. It is not leaking around the filter or the oil plug. It only leaks when the car is running. Where is the next most common place...


the most common place for a leak, especially when the engine running, is the rocker cover gasket on the top of the engine. other places include the crankshaft and camshaft oil seals, the sump gasket, and as you have already said, the oil filter and sump plug.
it is a lot easier to spot a leak if you pressure clean the engine first.
that way it is much easier to see any fresh oil and where it is coming from

The transmission is leaking in front and middle of the engine. What is the problem and how can I fix it


could be your gearbox seals.Check if the front one is gearbox oil or engine oil.If it is engine oil then could be your rocker cover seals..oil from the top travelling down,sump gaskits or crank shaft seals.The direction of travels pushes oil towards the rear and sometimes we think that the leak is on the rear somewhere whereas it could be in the front.

Mitsubishi 3L V6 engine knocking.


The knocking noise has to be a deep knocking noise if its the crank bearings . If the oil is very gooey the oil was never changed properly at the mileage or months as required. Also if the oil is thick as you state it must have 15,000 miles or more on this oil. 10,000 miles the oil will still be thin if never overheated. I suggest this engine be completely disassembled and inspected if you plan to keep it. You will find wear to more to it especially the cam shaft, lifters, rocker arm as so on. for the oil never lubricated the engine enough to save this engine
