All valve covers leak a little when they get old, this is not a major problem may just need new gasket, the main seals are notorious for leaking..will need to have transmission off to replace. strange idling could mean fuel injectors are dirty... purchase a can of Sea Foam @ Autozone, pour in 1/2 can to half tank of gas drive around for half hour see if it wont clear up the whole fuel system..if that didn't fix the idle problem, then it could be dirty air filter or plugged up erg valve or vacuum leak..check all hoses for cracks and security. One more thing, if its been awhile since the plugs have been changed i'd look into that too! hopethis helps!

Instrructions on replacing a rear main seal on 2004 kia rio


Oil leaking "in" your valve cover? Where is the oil at/coming from? And, to answar your question, rear main seal is a real job! Requires removing transmission, flex plate/fly wheel! It is the crank shaft seal, on the "rear" of the engine!

Oil leak. Have changed rear main seal, oil pan gasket, valve cover gasket. Any other ideas?


we learn
It is a 1987 jeep yj with a 4.2 engine and it is a stick shift.
we learn this is 3rd party question, poster not doing the work,... matters big time on answers...

ah the 4.2 with that funky electronic carb. not fun that... not ever....(the only bad jeep made)

leaks?where... ok later,, right side (usa passenger) front. of block.

leaks are hard. there are only 2 ways to find a leak.
( besides the shot gun methods) ouch

1: clean clean it spot less. drive 10 miles, bingo cause.
2: insert UV dye to oil filler, drive 10 miles. using UV lamp with kit bingo.

there is no other way..

leaks have degrees. some are best ignored. (unless rich)
I cant see it so cant advise. (is oil levels dropping weekly)

wow changed the most hard seal first. now that is brave....

the trans is stick NO A/T here nor AFT fluids
flying out the cooler line right there.

keep on mind wind and gravity moves oil to where IT wants not you. big time.
is the fuel pump port leaking
cam gear cover gasket
head gasket
or distributor leaking oil from any of 3 places?
valve cover gasket leaks, or was over-torqued and not all do like that.
get it clean and you will find the leak
and drive it, sure, some dont leak just idling
rare but true.

2001 mpv v6 consumed a liter of oil every 1000 km and there is no oil leak


Bummer Lito, the next areas are valve stem seals and then rings.

Pull the oil cap while the engine is idling. High pressure is blow-by from the rings. Low pressure, look at stem seals.

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.

Possible leak from my rear main seal on 87 bronco 2


The valve cover gaskets are prone to leaks and bad ones at that. Cleans the entire engine and rive it to confirm the source of the leaks or leaks.. Remember the oil runs down hill and to the rear of the engine and gets all over from leaking valve cover gaskets.

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.

    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.
