If its from top of engine for sure, then its just a leaky valve cover gasket.
you can have it replaced if you want..it wont hurt anything but will just make your driveway look dirtier.

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.

    It's my Subaru impreza wagon with an oil leak n when I drive it 50 mph or more n then park after I see fog (smokes)coming from the catalytic cover


    Have the engine pressure washed then change the oil and install dye that glows under a UV light, then put the car on the lift and look for oil leaks after you drive it about 25 miles. Yes this is best left to a shop as the light is about $100.00 and the dye about $5.00. You can do the pressure wash top and bottom of engine at the car wash

    I think im leaking oil. ive put oil in my car 3 times in the last week and it is ticking. why?


    i would say you have a serious leak?the questian where is it coming from in the 1940/1950 old engines could not hold oil engine or gearbox.so what the troops did was put a piece of paper under the engine and have a look next morning to see where the oil was coming from?but in modern engines it will show up on the engine somewhere.If you look about the engine and cant see a oil leak then you have a big problem as its loosing it internally ,but you will see blue hint smoke from exhaust.adrian,,,,,,,,,

    2002 chrysler sebring 2.4l leaking water is it water pump


    Yes you are correct the water pump is driven by the timing belt so if it leaks it will run down the back side of the engine from behind the timing belt cover :)

    I have a 1995 lumina with the 3.4L engine. I have a slight oil leak and from the looks of the bottom of the car it has been leaking for quite a while. I just bought the car so i wouldnt know. But the oil...


    SERIOULSY!!!!! first, go to a car wash, steam clean/ shampoo the entire engine (taking care to avoid directly spraying electricl components/distributor) then drive for about 10 km (6 miles) and look underneath the hood and see where the oil is possibley leaking from. Remeber, oil can leak down from the top and make somethine below it look as though that is where the oil is coming from. Also, the fan air can blow the oil from front to back making the oil drip from all over.
    Possible places that oil leaks come front: top = valve cover. front = cam shaft or crank shaft seal if from the rear = could be rear main seal.

    My 1992 isuzu trooper is leaking oil .it appears to be coming from top passenger corner of oil pan.however oil has coated parts to rear and above oil pan.oil leak is slow.could this be oil pump.what are...


    clean your engine and look very carefully where the oil leak really come from, the cause why this leak happen, the engine was shutdown while the engine temperature is hot. usually the leak will come from the turbo. the engine must be idle for 3-5min before shutting off.
