Hi, I have a 2004 Nissan Sentra 1.8, a few weeks ago I noticed oil leaking from the passenger side of the engine.

Sounds more like a valve cover gasket if it leaks on one side. If the oil leaks down the back look at the intake gasket.

2009 nissan sentra is having problems with use of oil 1 qt a week and comp.says misfire cylinder 3

check your exhausts catalytic converter if it is plugged your car will not go past 40 mph just unbolt the converter it is toward the front of the car if it runs better then you can get a new converter from ebay for less than 200 hope this helped. On your oil issue when the engine is still cold look underneath for a noticeable oil leak it should lead to a hole in a gasket you can ue high temperature ilicone from a parts houe to fix the leak

My Nissan Sentra is leaking motor oil. It comes out of the valves gasket. What should I do? Is it costly?. Guarantee is expired. sixmorans

Hi, You had fill too much oil on your sentra. Nissan Sentra use, less oil compare to other brands car with same CC . Never fill the oil that reach max mark of oil dip stick. Please replace your valve cover gasket ( my sentra has P/N: 13270-4m700, your sentra may has different P/N). You can do it yourself. It is only need about 20 minutes to complete.

97 jetta with oil pouring out just above where the filter ataches

I have a 1997 jetta and have been through this. Go to the volkswagen dealer and have them pull up the oil cooler housing. You will see a gasket (o-ring) that seals the two pieces of this housing together. Buy that. Your old one has gotten brittle from years of extreme temperature swings and cracked ( it will be like hard plastic when you remove it.) Unscrew your filter, take a 27mm socket (prob need deep well) and unscrew the nut at the top of stud where the filter screws to. Take it all the way off and remove the old o-ring. Clean the area well and put your new oil swabbed o-ring in and reverse the above steps. 30 min 8 dollar fix. Good luck!
