    1999 Ford escort ZX2 2.0 DOHC Was bubbling out of valve cover where plug sits. Replaced the valve cover gasket and the seal in well. Leaked again same placePut in another seal and put sealent aound it let sit for 4 hours next day leaking again. Would the oil sending unit cause this? My nephew who is a mechanic and works at Carmax can not find anything in the system they use.
    Any ideas would be a great help. Thanks, Teresia

    What year? what size of motor-yes I know it's a 4cyl but is it 1.8 1.9 2.0 OHV or 2.0 DOHC normally you can find this info under the hood on a tag. You have already changed a few items, but what exactly did you change(were on mtr) and were is the oil at that you are trying to seal?

Ok, There are many areas that the oil could leak from. Head gasket, oil pan gasket, rear main seal, front seal, valve cover gasket. You'll need to locate the leak under the car in order to know which one to replace. There is nothing simple about replacing the rear main seal and although he front seal is easier it can still be a problem. Good Luck.

I have a 2004 Toyota highlander leaking oil, oil light comes on. Could it be the rubber rings?


a 2004 toyota highlander V6

this should be your engine type
The 2GR-FE is a 3.5 L (3456 cc)

if leaks are that bad
always check the engine oil level before you drive off

fixing oil leaks on motors
degrease whole motor top and bottom

start with replacing the oil sender it may be the cause of the oil light coming on
after degrease
lay cardboard or paper under the car
take out for a drive and park over the paper over night

this pin points most of the oil leak locations
leaks from a V6 motor
rocker covers/ spark plug tube 0 rings.engine seals
cam seals
front and rear engine seals leak often
sump gasket can leak

if oil consumption or light on continues
can be a failing engine oil pump
or worn main bearings giving low oil pressure to the whole engine
you could be burning oil from worn piston rings
or hardened valve stems

a mechanic can fit an oil pressure gauge to the motor when hot
to check running oil pressure to confirm low oil pressure

if engine is worn out

it is possible to fit a lower mileage used motor to your highlander
its often cheaper than and engine rebuild

Oil leak on a '92 Geo Tracker. Installed an O Ring, but still leaking. Any suggestions?


O-ring where? The drain plug? Distributor shaft? Or do you mean oil seal?
Geo oil drain plug specifies a compressible copper ring washer I think? Need to clean the surfaces well, and torque to spec. My own plug's seal is not perfect, but only a drop here and there usually. Autozone or NAPA can supply you a new plug and washer if needed.

Engine is making oil


An engine does not make oil, but it can spill the oil that should be inside. You could have an oil leak, which means that oil will be leaking from either the front or the rear oil seal. The front oil seal is just behind the crank pulley, the one that drives the fan / alternator belt. If oil is leaking from there, suspect the front seal.
If you have oil leaking from the bell housing, that the the bell shaped metal thingy between the engine and the gearbox. you can suspect the rear oil seal.
If you inspect the engine and see oil leaking from the oil pan under the engine, you have a leaking pan gasket. This can usually be solved by tightening the pan bolts, a whole lot of bolts underneath the engine.
Finally, and this is probably the worst, if you see oil around the breather pipe that goes from the valve cover on top of the engine to the gas intake system, you have leaking compression, that means either the valve stem seals are leaking or the compression rings are finished, and you will have to have the engine overhauled, or at the very least have the cylinder head overhauled.
If the rings are suspect, you will also have excessive smoke out of the exhaust when you drive, especially when you accelerate. Check the exhaust for signs of wet oil.

Toyota burning oil


If you are sure it has no leaks, the only other possibilities are worn oil rings or valve stem seals. Generally if the oil rings are worn then the compression rings are as well, so get a compression test. If readings are down on spec, which is about 150 psi., add a tablespoon of engine oil to each cylinder in turn through the plug hole. If readings rise, then it is worn rings at fault. If not, then suspect the valve stem seals.

On these engines though, there are several characteristic oil leaks which may be hard to spot, being the cam cover gasket, crank nose seal, and the distributor o-ring seal.

Engine runs out of oil in less than one week, and engine raggs.


what do you mean by engine raggs? Is the engine using oil are is it leaking? if the engine is leaking then you need to find out where it is leaking oil from then replace the seal. if the engine is burring oil then you need to replace the piston rings. you and go to your local auto parts store and get some oil stop leak is the easiest fix.

Oil leaking from toyota camry 1992, 1994 model


You don't say what engine it has. The 4-cyl was a better than the V6 for oil leaks.

The V6 had oil leaks from

-rear bank cam cover gasket

-distributor o-ring seal

-oil filter bracket o-ring seal

-crankshaft nose oil seal (less common)

-rear main bearing oil seal (expensive, just leave it)

The 4 cyl leaked oil from

-distributor o-ring seal

-camshaft cover gasket

-rear main bearing seal (expensive, leave it)

Oil leak 2000 alero, just replaced plug, not it, leaked out all the oil after I drove it 20 miles, please help, could it be a gasket or what


Check the oil filter. The old gasket might be stuck on the engine (two gaskets stuck together), or the new gasket might be defective, misaligned or missing.
