Question about 2002 GMC Yukon Denali

1 Answer

I have a 2002 Yukon/Denali with an oil leak

The Denali has 98,000 miles. I recently noitice oil spots on the car port and checked it out. I observed oil dripping from above the oil filter. Not at the oil filter seal. Have you heard of this and what the possible fix may be? Is this something I can do myself or should I take it to a shop. I am a novice at car repairs and so simple upkeep on my vehicle.

I had the same problem with my 87 gmc year ago but if it is the same set up and I am assuming it is because it is exactly the same problem i went thrugh then when you take the filter off look and see if there are two bolts up in the assembly and if there are it probably is the seal, mine worked there way loose and a simple tightening fixed the problem, otherwise you will have top replace the seals

2007 Yukon xl denali burning oil

If you smell burning oil, you may have a leak in the engine compartment reaching the exhaust manifold and burning on contact. The most common cause for that is leaking valve cover gaskets. If you are losing oil with NO signs of external leaks, the engine may be burning it internally. Valve stem oil seals, worn piston rings, blown/leaking head gasket are a few causes of that.

Maybe put down a piece of cardboard and try to determine where on the engine the leak is. Front, back, right, left... then make another posting with more detail. (sorry to many places it could be)

if you dont see antifreeze leaking anywhere,its the head gasket,check your oil dipstck,the antifreeze is probally mixxing with the oil as it leaks thru the gasket and will give the oil a milky white color on the dipstick,if you start to see white smoke from the exaust then its leaking into your exaust port,either way head gasket and change as soon as possible,you dont want it in the oil cause you can seize the motor
