Question about 1988 Oldsmobile Toronado
I have what appears to be a oil and fuel leak around the front of the engine. When i dipped my finger in the puddle it smealed like gas. 1988 olds toronado
1. Check the oil (with dipstick) see if it smells the same as the oil spot you were detecting.
2. Fuel leaks are usually accompanied by a strong odor of fuel and time the vehicle is running.
I will guess that this car has quite a few miles on it. Having the gas ending up in the oil a bit is normal for high miles engines. As they get older they should be changed more often to keep this from happening.
As for the oil leak, only a visual inspection can determine the leak source. I would bet on a seal.
