Leaking water from oil pan or behind oil pan


figure out what type/size engine you have, call a dealer and ask for service department. ask them whether that engine has freeze plugs on the back of the block underneath the flywheel or ring gear. if not you may have a head gasket or heater hose leak which is dripping down through the bell housing presenting itself as coming via the oil pan gasket. there should be no water whatsoever in the oil pan and if there is you need to look around for a replacement used engine.

until you can see the leak its still guess work --either mechanic didnt do repair correctly or you have a crack in block --use a mirror and light to look in area for origin of leak

I got litle moisture in the oil the oil looks like milke it doest get hot, but its get litle drops of water in the oil what can I do?


You may have a head gasket leaking. Head gaskets can leak two different ways. One is to the exterior. You will see it and it will be quite obvious. The other is a water leak into the cylinder. the water gets into the oil pan via that route. Do you see water or steam (looks like white smoke) issuing from your tailpipes?

I left my 97 Ram 1500 idling outside for a bit today, and found a decent size puddle of antifreeze. It looks to be running down, if you're facing the engine, the right side. It looks like it pools at the...


Too many possibilities.
Most common is hoses, like heater hose.
Water pump is common after about 100,000 miles.
Thermostat housing can leak.
Head gasket if you have overheated and abused it.
Freeze plugs if you ran plain water and allowed it to rust.

Rent/borrow a pressure tester and pump up above radiator cap rating. With engine off and system full of water, it should be easy to then spot source of leak.

Leaking oil was told it had an upper and lower oil pan is this correct? Was told in order to repair upper pan , engine needed to come out, this sounds extreme. what can be done to fix the problem?


to examine this firstly buy some degreaser, clean the engine so the location of the leak can be pin pointed, take it to anothe mechanic for a second opinion {always the wiser move}, always into saving money. Good luck

Water leaking behind oil pan on a 95 chevy camaro-3.4L


If I rember correctly, there are two freeze plugs in the back of the block, behind the flywheel. They generally dont go bad often because they are pretty much protected. As that angelo guy said, more likely a hose or rear of intake gasket, but you have to look, from here I can't see it!!!

Leaking antifreeze from oil pan bolts


Its almost impossible to leak antifreeze from oil pan bolts. However if you have a bad head-gasket antifreeze can get into the oil and yeah with that back pressure in the oil pan it can leak. I would look at the water pump first, it is possible that the pump or the seal on the pump is leaking and it is running down the front of the engine and it looks like its coming from the oil pan. Check this vehicle care fully and make sure that it is coming from the oil pan. If it is really coming from the oil pan you would nee more than a gasket you would need a complete head job. Check and let me know, the status. Good Luck

There are two slots in the valve cover right by the cam shaft sprocket that have to be honda bonded or black rtv. look closely at the valve cover right above the gasket underneath the timing belt cover. Hope that helps.
