    I just had the car inspected. I've cleaned the engine and verified the one leak on the opposite side where the timing belt is housed. Were can I find a engine diagram at to maybe be more specific in descibing where to leak is?
    Thanks

  • tugboatkpo May 15, 2010

    The one oil leak is where the distributor cap or housing sits on.
    Thanks

Buy a small black light that runs off of AA batteries and go to napa autoparts and buy some uv dye for finding leaks. Put it in and start the car, then shine the blacklight on the engine and you'll be able to find exactly where the leak is. Might be able to seal it shut with some

Could be coming from the 'front cover gasket', below the distributor, and 'camshaft oil seal', located behind the distributor rotor. The leak usually flows to the front portion, exhaust side.Check it out.

    Sounds like a good idea. Will know for sure than. How long should I wait for the stuff to show on the engine? You started to say something about sealing the leaks.

I suggest check the torque, maybe any bolt are loose, or, If not for some time that the reviews, could be the seals.

Good luck.

There are so many reasons a car leaks oil. If you feel confident and are sure you have all the tools then go for it. But my recomendation first is to get it inspected for 30 or 40 bucks so they can tell you what they think. If they think the engine will need to be removed then you may not want deal with this. What I do for my leak on my JEEP is I put a home made diaper to catch the oil. I just wire it up and replace it when needed.

Michael, check your engines oil level right away, low or dirty oil is the main cause. Other things that can cause this issue could be worn or dirty cam lifters or tappets, exhaust leak, loose worn timing chain, possible EGR valve cracked or leaking at base, bad belt or tension er, the list could go on.

How to fix my car with no compression


This is a problem which at its cheapest will require a new timing chain. This would be the solution if you remove a valve cover, have someone turn the starter and observe if the valves and camshaft is moving.
If the valve train and camshaft does not move, when the crankshaft is turning, then the crankshaft and camshaft are not linked. The timing chain is that link.
The single cam engines are easier to repair. Once you determine that a timing chain is needed some alignment of the timing marks are needed. On some styles of motors, the front of the motor can be removed without even removing a valve cover.
However, if the valves are turning when the engine is cranked, the engine could have jumped time, leaving the camshaft and crankshaft connected.
Next, fuel flooding. Sometimes the fuel injectors leak and wash away the oil coating on the compression rings on the pistons. This will pretty much zero the compression on the cylinders. Check your oil, drain the oil pan, see if there is a gain in the number of quarts of oil that comes out. Any gain would be straight gasoline.
Remove the sparkplugs, see if engine has compression. Throw a couple of quarts of oil in crankcase and squirt oil into cylinders through sparkplug holes. If compression builds, rings had problems, if compression does not build valves are problem.
You can talk about the repair, replacing a timing chain, and get the best price.

Oil leak front engine timing chan


1995 Tracker would have a timing BELT. Normal oil leak points (in order) on a Suzuki G16 engine are the distributor base (rear of motor), valve cover (top of motor), front main seal (behind lower timing belt cog) cam seal (behind the upper timing belt cog) and rear main seal. (behind the flywheel). I'd suspect the front main seal or cam seal. I use foot power to help find oil leaks.

I have a 2000 Ponitac Grand Am but the motor in the car is a 2002. I have had the car for a couple of days and now the oil is leaking rather bad, now I am no car expert but my husband and I were thinking...


u might check that the oil filter gasket did not slip when it was put on and have the oil running down over the pan . this car is not known to have oil leak problems.if i am thinking right it has a 3.4 liter and they are known (like there cousin the 3.1 )to leak anti-freeze from the intake gasket.

I have a 1989 Buick Regal with the 3.1 V6 engine. What is the replacement interval for the timing chain? This car has well over 200,000 miles I think on the original chain. I am the second owner and got it...


There is no standard replacement interval for timing chains. There are some signs that will indicate that it is worn out like a rattle from behind the timing cover. If the engine has been taken care of the chain should last the life of the engine.

The only time I have changed them is if the vehicle has higher miles and the timing cover needs to be pulled to fix a problem like an oil leak or coolant leak. Otherwise they are not common repairs.

92 voyager oil pump replacement.


Remove the engine front cover then drain the engine oil and take out the oil pan. It is under the engine and looks like the bottom of the motor.
Unscrew the oil pump mounting bolts with a wrench and proceed to remove the oil pump itself by pulling it down and out of the engine. Avoid getting any contaminants into the oil pump assembly while removing.
Add fresh oil to the new pump to prime it. Check the alignment on the new oil pump drive with the crankshaft/intermediate crankshaft timing.
  • Step 2 Install the new pump carefully, rotating it back and forth a little to make sure it has full surface contact between the pump and the engine block.
  • Step 3 Hold the pump in its sealed position and put in the pump mounting bolts, tightening them to 15 ft-lb.
  • Step 4 Put the engine oil pan back in and refill the crankcase. Start the engine and check for leaks on the parts you replaced

    My 1990 nissan sentra has a noisy timing chain when running idle.


    Your timing chain tensioner is using oil pressure to stay tight.Could be your oil pressure is so low at idle the tensioner just can't stay tight.At the next oil change you could go for a thicker oil and see if the tensioner keeps the chain tighter at idle.
