My 2004 ford freestar runs well but is leaking about a quart of oil a week almost


If it's leaking from inside the engine then it would be coming from the valve cover. The cover gasket seal is no longer sealing properly. If oil is leaking down under the car then check around the oil pan, could be gasket or rear main oil seal or front oil seal.

Why is oil in sparkplug wells?


there are o-rings that are under the valve cover that seal the valve cover to the cylinder head, they are leaking and allowing oil to leak from under the valve cover into the spark plug wells, all you need to do is replace the valve cover gaskets and wa-la the oil problem will be fixed.....good luck

What do I do for a major oil leak? I just drove home and now I have a pool of oil under the car! Its leaking like crazy!


You probably blew a seal somewhere. I would try to pinpoint where the majority of the oil is coming from then replace that seal. A lot of times oil pan seals, drain plugs, rear main seals and valve cover seals can cause large oil leaks.

Using oil with no visible leaks. No water in oil or oil in water and not down on power so head gasket should be ok. Not blowing smoke when hot or cold. Alot of oil blows out oil cap hole when cap is...


It sounds to me like the oil is being used slowly, by running through your "valve stem seals". The Valve stem seals are small pieces of rubber that surround the valve under the valve spring. They are designed to keep oil from running down the valve, and into the cylinder. When the valve stem seals wear out, they allow oil in small amounts to pass through the cylinder head, and run into the cylinder. If the vehicle sits for several hours, you will usually see a small amount of smoke on start-up, but rarely will ever see smoke while it's running.

Engine oil flowing on the spark plug


Usually this is due to the spark plug tube seal allowing oil to escape from under the valve cover down the tube. You will have to remove the valve cover and replace the seals. You might consider replacing the valve cover gasket at the same time.

Changed plugs, excessive oil in 2 & 4 cylinders? Why??


The wording of your question is a little confusing. But, if you have any oil on your spark plugs, it means oil is leaking in from a bad seal. If your spark plugs go through the valve cover, then the seal under the valve cover may have gone bad. If you mean there is oil burn on to the spark plug, it could mean that the seals around your valves have gone bad and are allowing oil into the cylinders; you could also have bad rings on the affected cylinders and they are allowing excessive oil to come past the piston. You can usually see blue smoke coming out of the exhaust as well as the oil cap if this is the problem.

Engine smokes blue white right side only


I'm going to guess it's a blocked oil return in the head under the valve cover. If it fills up the rocker cover, the valve seals can't handle that much oil and it gets into the combustion system. Try looking through an opening, oil cap, PCV valve opening to see if a lot of oil is pooling up.

Otherwise, it could be the PCV valve if causing pressure in the rocker cover. Or valve stem seals if it's worse on acceleration after coasting down. Good luck
