05 malibu leaking oil from rear of engine


This may be from excessive pressure in the sump from blow-by from the compression process . It is from a blocked PCV valve that is not equalising that pressure. I have also known oil leaks to happen because the rear main bearing cap is leaking oil past the join around the bolts (loose) or no sealing compound used in assembling the rear main bearing.. I would look at the PCV valve as it is the cheapest test first.. Check that the oil is not coming from the front gear box seal or torque converter seal.

Oil leak on driveway coming from front of engine


Dear Sir,
Here is the oil leaking Problem Identifying Technique

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket are common.

  • The intake manifold plenum gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption/burning and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.
  • External oil leaks from valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets (front or rear), and the rear crankshaft (rear main) seal area are common. The rear main seal is an unlikely source. Normally, the bearing cap mating surfaces (as well as the sealing surface between the oil pan and bearing cap) are the source for the leaks.
  • Engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from theintake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.
  • If the oil filter casing shows signs of distortion from excessive oil pressure, theoil pump should be replaced.
  • Often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
  • Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

    First have to determine where are you loosing it from.
    Possible engine oil leak areas : Valve cover gasket,oil pan gasket, rear main,oil filter. crank or cam shaft seal, oil pump. Pcv valve.
    If its transmission oil leaking here are a few areas of interest: shell of transmission( depending where on the shell could be oil pump, or converter., vents, and axle seals.
    If your not capable to jack the vehicle up and look for the leak , then take it to a repair shop.
    Keep me posted

    If it is leaking out of the pan, then you will need a new pan gasket. If it's leaking out anywhere else, you could have a bad main or rear seal depending on where the leak is. A can of tranny stop leak may help you out.

    Oil leaking in engine have replaced seal and O rings but still leaks. I am going to scream!


    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.

    Oil leaking from some sort of plug above the oil filter


    If the leak is coming directly from above the oil filter it is more than likely the oil pressure switch is leaking. The seal around the Oil pressure switch could have gone bad and now it is leaking.

    The oil pressure switch is located right above the the oil filter and above the cooling system cross pipe.

    2002 Jeep Wrangler appears the rear of the oil pan gasket is leaking. How hard is it to change out and any tips/


    It is the oil pan gasket all you have to do is drop the oil pan clean the bottom of the engine block and the surface of the oil pan and install the oil pan again. a very simple process. Make sure that it is not the rear main crank seal that is leaking. If it is the rear main then you will have to remove the tranny to replace the rear main seal.
