Hi, I have a fiat doblo cargo 2003, leaking oil. When I park up - the oil drips closer to (but not right at) the front of vehicle, and to the left hand side (drivers' side) - could this be the oil...


Try wiping the engine off in that area with some rags, then watch for where the oil leak comes from. If it's the filter seal, you should see oil on the filter dripping off.

I have a 95 blazer thats leakin tan like oil can u tell me whats that problem its leakin on drive side


Hi :) Tan colour oil is water and oil mixed together or greenish tan is antifreeze and oil That sounds like a head gasket leak coming from the left bank of the motor.Check the dip stick it might be showing up in the oil too.Head gaskets are around $60.00 plus labour as long as the head is not warped or cracked.

My 1996 Toyota Camry is leaking oil in little spots on the ground when its parked, where could it be leaking from and how can i fix it?


You cannot repair the leak until you determine where it is leaking. More than likely it is leaking from the oil filter, oil pressure sending unit, or valve cover gasket. Check around the oil filter for a leaks and if you see oil on the filter then replace it. Check the oil pressure sending unit and if it is leaking replace it. Wipe all the oil off the bottom of the engine and any other place you see oil. Now place newspapers on the floor under the car and then start the engine and let it run for about 10 minutes and then shut down. Wait overnight and you can see where the leak is coming from.

I have an oil problem I am losing oil and do not know where it is going There is no oil the cement or on the side of the motor


see how dark and oily it is around your exhaust pipe tip. at 11 years old your valve guides and piston rings are beyond their normal service life and oil may getting past them and out the tail pipe.

look inside your air cleaner. old motors often pump oil through the PCV valve into the air cleaner box.

look at the back of the car itself. a bad seal can dump oil which turns into a fine mist which then collects as a layer of slime on the back of the car, like road dust.

I am leaking antifreeze under my blazer onto the ground but not inside the vehicle. My blazer does not overheat, my heat will work sometimes while driving but as soon as I stop or slow down it blows cold....


you need to figure out where the coolant is leaking from. Some common areas are

the water pump in which case you would be able to remove the splash shield from under the front of the vehicle and using a flash light be able to see coolant coming out of the weep hole of the water pump.

The intake gaskets. Look in the corner of the intake valley where the head and lower intake meet right under the a/c compressor. If you see coolant its leaking and needs to be replaced.

The radiator, you'll be looking for wet spots on the side tanks of the radiator. Loose upper and lower radiator hoses could also cause this.

If you can't find anything visually you'll need to bring it in and have it pressure tested.

My 97 buick park avenue is leaking and causing the temp to go up where can i find the leak at?


It could be a number of places. I assume you mean that the coolant is leaking. You need to get it pressure tested to find the leak if it is not "dripping" where you can see it.

How do i change the oil


Make sure you have 5 quarts of good quality motor oil (I prefer Mobil 1 Synthetic 5W30 but you don't have to use that if you don't want) and an oil filter. The oil filter has to be one designed specifically for your year/make/model vehicle...Champion PH51A is a good example of what will fit your vehicle.

Now, the first step is to run the motor for about 10 minutes to warm it up then let it sit for a minute or two to let the oil settle back into the oil pan. Jack the front of the vehicle up so that you can crawl underneath it...***do not leave it on the jack, use jackstands to support the vehicle***

Next crawl under the vehicle and locate the oil pan drain plug (here is a hint, the oil pan is the square looking thing just before the transmission and the plug is near the back of the pan) put your oil collection container under the plug and slowly remove the plug...***be careful here, the oil is very warm***

Let the oil drain into the container until you see just a few drops coming out then replace the plug and wipe the area down with a rag to prevent oil drips.

Next, locate the oil filter (up by the front bumper you will see a small drop down panel, the oil filter is behind that, drop that panel down, place your oil collection container underneath and remove the oil filter ***there will be some oil that comes out of the port, let it drip out, do not turn the filter upside down until it is directly over the oil collection container***

Next, get your new oil filter and put a thin coat of oil on the rubber gasket of the filter (this is accomplished by opening one of the quarts of fresh oil and simply dipping your finger in and rubbing around the gasket) screw the filter on and hand tighten it about 1/4 of a turn. Be sure to re-fasten the panel you dropped earlier.

Now you can take your vehicle off the jackstands, simply jack the vehicle just enough to clear the stands, remove and slowly lower the vehicle until the wheels touch the ground. ***DO NOT START THE ENGINE***

Now, pop the hood open and remove the oil cap on the engine and carefully add the 5 quarts of oil, try not to spill any, if you need a funnel use one...I use a funnel every time!

Now, once the oil is in the engine, pull the dipstick, wipe it clean, reinsert, pull out and look at it, you should see the new oil on the stick. It doesn't hurt to get down on the ground and look to see if oil is leaking around the filter and the drain plug...right now it's a simple matter of tightening, much better than losing your engine later because the oil leaked out!

NOW you can start the engine...the gauge will not show oil pressure until the pump picks up the new oil and distributes it throughout the engine. Let the motor run for about 2-3 minutes and shut it off. Leave it be for another 2-3 minutes and check the oil level again on the dipstick. The oil level on the stick should be right at the normal mark (could be the stick has a "add oil" etched on it then what looks like a rough area and then a "full" etched on it; if the oil is close to the "full" mark you are fine)

That's about it for an oil change, I know it sounds like a lot of work but once you do it, you will see it's really rather simple!

Oil leak on 95 chrysler concorde. 3.5


first thing first... have you seen an actual oil spot/leak on the ground after the car has sat overnight. have you checked the seal around the oil filter.
If you have done those things and both are no... there is a chance it is burning the oil... what does the exhaust smoke look like ?
