Leaking oil tahoe


The rear seal of the engine could have started to leak but a loose oil pan or damaged oil filter could be a factor.

If there is a tiny oil spot on the concrete by the oil filter what could cause this


possible residue from filter change,or the filter may be lose,if you can reach it try tightening it,it should only need to be hand tight. either that or when oil was added they may have spilt a drop.but more likely to be residue from filter change as when filter is changed i normally smear some oil around the new oil filter seal.

1998 Chevy Malibu is using excessive oil. Had an oil change done back in October 2012 . Then checked Oil level in December of 2012 and was about 3/4 low in oil! why ?


first thing check make sure oil pan drain plug tight. check make sure oil filter tight. try tighten oil filter by hand see if turn tighten oil filter clockwise direcction if all is good. how many miles on vechicle.could have oil leaks park vechicle in spot that clean.move vechicle see if you see oil spots on ground if yes.your front timing cover seal leaking oil or rear main oil seal ;eaking.or valve cover gaskets leaking.if find no oil leaks more likely engine burning oil.replace pcv valve.check air filter if you see oil in air filter housing either have bad pcv valve or pcv not getting vacuum make sure pcv valve getting vacuum when engine running vacuum should be felt at pcv if not pcv valve bad or pcv hose disconnected broken or plugged.if pcv valve okay engine has worn piston rings.worn valve seals or guides or oil return holes stopped up thats all possible reasons for engine burning oil.if spark plugs oil fouled engine burning oil.

To much oil


Too much oil is a bad thing. If it's smoking then you have way way to much oil. Drain some out. It's a royal pain but considering what all that burning oil is doing to your expensive oxygen sensors and catalytic converter is worth the trouble. Do it with the engine cold as hot oil hurts. Just loosen the drain plug enough to let oil drain a little and tighten it back up only not too tight, about a quarter to a half turn past finger tight is more than enough. If the oil is black it needs changing anyway.

Drove 96 dodge caravan thru a flash flooded roadway. had to make a quick a quick stop, van died. Have replaced starter because of grinding upon trying to start. Now it just makes one click when trying to...


Check cables must be tight at battery & starter. You must have 12 volts coming out of battery to starter.
Pull your dip stick is it over filled or milky looking. If so you very likely have water in engine.
Can you turn the fly wheel or is the engine locked up?
Drain the oil replace filter remove spark plugs turn engine backward to unlock engine. Drain fuel and replace fuel filter. Remove air filter has it gotten wet? Now crank it over with Air filter & spark plugs out. Now put in new air filter spark plugs dry wires & coils. And start the car, If car starts don't drive drain transmission change filter. If it did not start you may have done damage to computer or wiring.
But you got to see if engine is locked up if 12 volts is to starter & that no water is in oil or fuel.

Light comes on saying low oil level, stop safely and stop engine. Had oil changed two weeks ago.


If you did not do the oil change it is possible A) the plug was not tight, B) the filter was not tight, or C) the correct amount of oil was not installed.
Check oil level.

Oil light stays on even after complete oil change


It sounds like your oil pump is going bad..Well bd now since you said the light stayed on...And the noise you hear is the sound of a engine not getting enough oil, to lube all those metal parts,,,,You can replace your oil pump, and hopefully you didnt do too much damage to the motor....Goodluck...

When you change oil or flush YOU dont take off the pan to clean it out as Flushing is the worst thing you do to a engine unless you are thinking of rebuilding it .
All you do is to drain ...by using the drain plug and let it drain for 10 minutes ,,while draining change the filter AIR and OIL put bung back in and refill with 20W40 or summer 20W 50 oil .
SO NOW YOU HAVE A OIL MIXED WITH FLUSHING GUNK ???????????????????

95 Jetta won't start consistently


Probably a good idea to change filter. Gas in oil due to attempted starts and flooding. Additives will draw out water and make white smoke. Been there, seen it. New gasahol will separate within 6 months and will draw and accumulate moisture like diesel. Since no default lights are on you could still try autoparts store like Autozone or similar and ask for test but without faults probably a no show. The additives could cause high idle until you are burning 100% gas. Check to see if all vacuum lines are correct after removing air filter.

Changed oil and fuel filters on 4jx1, will not start but cranks


You must use 5/30 fully synth oil and i guess if you did that and still wont go its going to be air so pump away a bit longer on the primer .Should be some pressure there when its ready to go .
