My oil is leaking out when the engine is running. oil is all over the bottom of my 2004 dodge stratus. could it be a front seal? it is a 4 door sedan

It could be several things. But you will need to do some things to pin point where it is coming out. I would recommend steam cleaning your engine. Or at least washing it, to get the oil off. After the engine drys it will be easier to spot where the leak is with a clean engine. Ihave had good luck using kitchen flour sprinkled on the suspected areas to find out where the problem is. But you make up your own mind. The front seal is a possibility, but the valve cover gaskets, oil cooling lines, etc. are all possibilities. Chrysler vehicles seem to develop oil leaks at the valve cover gaskets far more often than the front seal.

Canot get pan out with motor jack up into fire wall not able to clear dual oil pickups front and rear sumps over front diff f 250 4x4 5.8 gas motor

you must unbolt the oil pump pick up in order to remove pan. are you just replacing a gasket due to a leak?? I usually end up dropping the pan at the point where you have it and plutting in the gasket there. Pain in the but but easier than taking the pan down. Make sure you use a rubber gaske t(not cork) and apply a dab of silicone in the corners by the front and rear seals when putting back together.

I have a 1997 jeep grand cherkee 4.0 with miss fire after water p

you will need to check the codes and see exactly what cylinder is misfiring, this maybe caused due to a vacuum leak or bad wires or if it has a coil then a bad coil boot,this may not have anything to do with the waterpump job, or might,if you could pinpoint which cylinder it was, then this would help pin point the problem,check around for vacuum leaks, or any connections left loose ,start with that,

How do you replace the tubing from the windshield washer bottle? where is the tubing located on 1997 dodge grand caravan?

If you've developed a leak than the problem lies within the washer tank and not the lines. If your washers just aren't squirting then you've got to clean the nozzles on the hood. The washer feed lines are very rarely at fault unless the vehicle has had a fire. Thank you, Dana

My 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP has an oil leak located on the firewall side of the engine. It's a small leak (2-3 drops a day) but very messy on my concrete driveway. How can I fix it?

Try some motor honey. It can be bought at most part stores, advanced auto, autozone, ect. It worked for my 95 Grand Am when I had a leak in my oil pan gasket. Hope this helps

Oil leaking from front of motor.

Being it is a 97 outbac, I believe you have the EJ25 Duel over head cam Boxer motor, Very good motor. If i am correct you have 5 places that most likely could be the leak. THe crank pulley, in center, Or either of the 4 cam shafts. You will have to look for more signs of the leak. If leaking from the cams you will usualy see the oil on the iside of the pulleys them selves. The crank seal on the other hand generally runs down the center of the block.Please be very careful to check your timing marks on your pulleys before you start it, due to the belt posibly slipping from what you had said. The crank has a small hash line that points up to a mark in the block The top pulleys on both sides have a sigle line that points to a notch straight up on the cover and double lines that point straght down at double lines on the lower pulleys. And the lower pulleys also have a single line that point to a notch outward that is on the cover. Hope this helps and have a good day.
