I have a2001 holden astra 4 cylinder 1.8 litre can i remove the oil pan without taking the motor out


If had someone replace the seals you should take it back to them and let them fix it.
You can remove the oil pan without taking the motor out, but it's a LOT easier to work on if you do. You will probably take 3 times longer by trying to leave it in the car vs. taking the motor out.

Just bought a 1995 bmw 530i 5speed 136,000 miles has a oil leak but can't find it but it's leaving quarts of oil on the ground can anyone help plz asap


Try changing the oil (probably due) and then cleaning the area of the filter and the plug and also clean the plug off as well sometimes people carelessly change oil and don't clean it and,leave something on the surface and the filter or plug does not seal and then leaks. Place a flattened box underneath after and see if and where it is leaking. If all else fails try bars stop leak

Oil leaking from toyota camry 1992, 1994 model


You don't say what engine it has. The 4-cyl was a better than the V6 for oil leaks.

The V6 had oil leaks from

-rear bank cam cover gasket

-distributor o-ring seal

-oil filter bracket o-ring seal

-crankshaft nose oil seal (less common)

-rear main bearing oil seal (expensive, just leave it)

The 4 cyl leaked oil from

-distributor o-ring seal

-camshaft cover gasket

-rear main bearing seal (expensive, leave it)

Rear end seal leaks and leaves a trail of oil only when cold


As you are driving, friction makes the seal expand. Time to have a garage replace the rear end seal.

2004 gmc yukon lite came on low oil pressure just had oil change 5 days ago checked it was low about a qt. Has 157,000 miles what can be the cause


There can be alot of causes, such as valve covers leaking, oil pan gasket leaking, oil filter leaking, rear main seal leaking, front timing chain cover seal or gasket leaking even bad rings. Does it smoke out of the back? Your valve seals could be leaking. Best way to find out if you have a leak is to inspect the valve covers manually, or take newspapers and lay them under the entire engine on the ground, and it will leave the tell tale stain of a leak. Hope this helps.

I have a 2006 Isuzu NPR that is leaking oil. I called husky trucks and they said to look online to find out how to fix the referential seal leak. I could not find any how tos to fix this probelm. ...


It is a bit new to have a serious oil problem.
Never heard of a "referential" seal. I am familiar with rear main seal and differential seal.
But first you need to find the leak.
The thing to do is steam clean the engine so that you can see better.
(avoid heat or water around alternator, starter, ignition, etc)
Then put cardboard under it.

Also a bad PCV can cause excess crankcase pressure that forces oil out.
Top valve cover gasket is very common.
Rear main seal will come out from bell housing bottom.
You might also want to consider thicker oil, like Castrol 20W-50.
Oil pressure sending units also often leak.
Filter could be not sealing right, due to things like left over seal, etc.

Oil is leaking bad and oil pan gasket has been replaced what else could be leaking really bad like 2 quarts in 50 miles e-mail jimmybumgarner@rocketmail.com


is the leak visually on the ground, then it seems like you could get under car and wipe a few things and see what leaks, thats a big leak, car would be leaving a smoke screen behind you from getting all over exhaust system. I would have to say, REAR MAIN SEAL BETWEEN MOTOR AND TRANS, OIL FILTER NOT TIGHT, Is oil all over the timing belt? front gasket/seal failure, Oil sending unit, is the light on or pressure gauge work?
