    Is this coming from the sump? Does the inside of the oil filler cap have a toffee coloured substance in it? is the engine misfiring or getting very hot very quickly? Is the car using a lot of water? Is your oil level rising?

2002 olds Alero Oil is going somewhere but not on ground or exhaust

Look for oil in the coolant, it will make a murky paint like floating substance in the coolant overflow and radiator. If this is the case you may have a leaking head gasket or intake gasket allowing the cooling system water and oil to mix. You may also notice a bluish white smoke from the exhaust when accelerating if the headgasket has failed.

Oil leak 2000 alero, just replaced plug, not it, leaked out all the oil after I drove it 20 miles, please help, could it be a gasket or what

Check the oil filter. The old gasket might be stuck on the engine (two gaskets stuck together), or the new gasket might be defective, misaligned or missing.

I had the same problem on a 2002 Alero V6. I found the coolant was leaking at the intake manifold on the left front of the engine. I tightened the intake bolts (which were very loose) and solved my coolant leak problem.

I just got my oil pan gasket leak fixed on my 2000 Alero, but it's still leaking oil? What else could it be?

Most likely if its coming from the lower part of the engine its either a front or rear main seal. Again the general location of the leak is important to diagnosing the problem.

Please take a moment to rate my answer.......... Thanks

Oil leak on 2.4 olds alero right side of engine where could it be leaking from

Two solutions.

Obvious is to tighten to valve cover.

The engine is actually designed to Not leak via the PVC Valve if working correctly there should in-fact be a negative pressure in the crank case.

Check and replace the PVC Valve.

Hope this tip helps

Motor oil leaking into overflow

If you mean the coolant overflow I would check the oil dipstick for water oil. It will appear white/tan. If this is the case I would firmly suspect a head gasket.
