My 2005 Chevy Cavalier is severely leaking oil from a bolthole on the bottom of the oil pan. It is not the oil plug hole and there are a few holes like it without bolts in them but there is only one...


SOUND LIKE HOLE IN OIL PAN IF THE OIL PAN DRAIN PLUG NOT LOOSE OR MISSING AND THE UPPER PAN BOLTS HOLES NOT MISSING A BOLT CAUSE LEAKING.MORE LIKELY YOU HAVE HOLE IN THE OIL PAN.

Transmission and oil leaking in to oil pan under a 1999 jeep no seeable leak points but its a class 2 leak ( drips forming but no puddle under the vehicle)


There are three places above that pan that the leaks could be coming from. 1- Tail shaft of the transmission.Would be a red color. 2-3- Input and Output shafts on the transfer case. More the color of motor oil. There may be more oil in that skid pan just not at the correct angel to let it run off.

I notice oil on some bolts on my oil pan,, where could it be coming from and how do you stop an oil leak? Any sealer I can buy at auto store?


An oil pan gasket is what you will need to stop this leak for it is leaking around the bolts. This is common to all oil pan bolts when they get old

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

2004 Chevy Cavalier Oil leak


Replacing an oil pan gasket on a car shouldn't be too difficult for you, say, about an hour or two. As long as you follow some simple guidelines, the leak should be eliminated. Improper tightening or seating of the gasket material can defeat the purpose of your work. Grab a Haynes manual, or a tech guide for your vehicle, and have it handy.

I would suggest tracking the oil leak to ensure that it's not your front seal on your crankshaft. The amount of oil that you describe sounds like a bit much for an undisturbed oil pan gasket.

97 jetta with oil pouring out just above where the filter ataches


I have a 1997 jetta and have been through this. Go to the volkswagen dealer and have them pull up the oil cooler housing. You will see a gasket (o-ring) that seals the two pieces of this housing together. Buy that. Your old one has gotten brittle from years of extreme temperature swings and cracked ( it will be like hard plastic when you remove it.) Unscrew your filter, take a 27mm socket (prob need deep well) and unscrew the nut at the top of stud where the filter screws to. Take it all the way off and remove the old o-ring. Clean the area well and put your new oil swabbed o-ring in and reverse the above steps. 30 min 8 dollar fix. Good luck!
