Im assuming you mean the oil pan gasket? Oil pan gaskets are very time consuming to change on most vehicles, expecially front wheel drive because of the space. First crawl under and locate the oil pan (don't confuse with the bottom of the transmission lol). On my front wheel drive vehicle, I had to disconnect the AC lines to get to it (what a headache that was). Getting access to the oil pan is the hardest part but once you have access, the process is realitively easy. Drain the oil first or you will be taking a bath. remove the screws, clean the area the gasket is going to be touching, replace gasket and re torque the bolts to mfg. specs in sequential order as to not bind or pinch the gasket. Also, is it leaking from the valve cover? Valve cover gaskets are much easier to replace than oil pan gaskets.

i believe you are looking at the oil cooler, replacing the gasket is not that difficult, drain the radiator, remove the oil filter and it should be 4 bolts and the whole assembly comes off, keep in mind though its more common for the oil filter itself to be leaking rather than the oil cooler gasket.

Why can I smell burning oil after engine running for a short time.it seems to get worse when engine gets warmer


Oil is leaking on hot exhaust manifold under hood. It may be valve cover gaskets or another oil leak. Just check it out!

I have a 2003 altima and I keep smelling exhaust fumes in the car.i have replaced the cat . Th esmell seems to be getting worse. What could be th eissue?


Exhaust leaks are a bear, i would first start off by checking where the headers meet the motor. broken down gaskets can release exhaust into the engine bay which will make its way into your cab. either way the burning off of oil is not good as exhaust leaks can damage your valve train and it makes for a very expensive endeavor. Tracking down your exhaust leak should be a top priority though!

Ive notice small leaks of motor oil on my driveway/ when i checked it seems as though that the oil leak is coming from the bolts that hold the oil pan. I have to check my oil often just to make sure it...


try tightening the bolts that hold the oil pan on, if this doesn't help you may have to replace the oil pan gasket......hope this helps.....cheers.

My leganza is leaking oil even after the rocket cover gasket was replaced, car seems to drive fine, but the leak is worrying me a mechanic says it could be a cracked head gasket? is this correct, i am not...


I suggest u park the car n hve it properly checked before the worse happens. If the head gasket is the problem it has to be replaced fast before the problem affects the head which wil b costly to rectify. Good luck.

Big oil puddles in drive under car. 1 1/2 quarts low between oil changes. Looked under car and oil is mostly on back part of engine. ?


You should get it up in a hoist and look at lower side of engine. Could be rear seal or something as simple as valve cover gasket leaking. It's probably a simple gasket that needs replacing but don't put it off, leaks don't fix themselves they only get worse.

MY 2002 GRAND VOYAGER HAS A CONSTANT OIL LEAK WHICH REQUIRES ME TO TOP UP OIL LEVEL REGURALY


All you can do is locate where the leak is coming from and replace the gasket or seal that is leaking. Common places are: valve cover gaskets, front and rear intake gaskets, front and rear main seals, and timing cover gaskets.

Oil pan is leaking really bad


If it is leaking at the gasket, remove and replace the gasket.
If it is leaking at a corner from a rust spot, you may be able to repair it if the hole is small with Puddy Epoxy, that sets in 5 minutes and cures in 1 hour or so.

I tried this on a 1998 Ford Taurus that had a difficult to remove oil pan that seemed to drip oil when shut off.

I got a screwdriver and poked a larger hole in the oil pan and made the edges go ragged around the hole.

Then, I sprayed it with brake cleaner to get the oil residue off.
Then, I got a golf ball sized amount of Puddy Epoxy, mixed it by kneeding it in my two hands, then I applied it to the hole. It works great, going on 2 years.

A lot cheaper than a new pan removed and replaced, by the way.

Good luck on this repair.

Oil leak


if the leak is actually coming from the head gasket the only way to repair it is to replace the head gasket which involves removing the engine, pulling the valve covers off and much much more... probably not anything your going to want to do in your driveway... if you arn't losing any oil or coolant and have no check engine light on, i don't imagine that it is a very big leak at all. i would continue to drive the car as usual and just watch the leak- if it gets worse you should have the heads done. just remember to check your fluids... it can be very costly to put head gaskets on.

have you smashed the sump ??never seen one leak yet?? sure its not the front or rear end oil seals ??..sounds like you have the sub frame in the way ,evan if you remove this bolt you will not be able to drop the sump without removing or lowering the sub frame assembly as the oil pick up pipe stops you from removing the sump in situe.Its not difficult to drop sub frame just time consuming
