I OWN A 1996 NISSAN QUEST GXE THAT'S BLOWING BLUE SMOKE FRONT FRONT DRIVER SIDE TIRE AND I CAN SMELL ANTI FREEZE INSIDE.. I JUST BOUGHT VEHICLE AS A COMMUTER.


Sounds expensive. Blue smoke usually means oil in the combustion chambers, from worn out rings. Anti-freeze inside means leaking hoses or heater core. Not sure where the driver-side tire comes into this, unless that is where the smoke is coming from, in which case that likely a problem with a seized brake caliper.

There is a rubbing sound coming from the drivers side tire, and when the gas is pushed hard, a loud thump comes from the drivers side. The explorer is all-wheel drive. Underneath, the entire driver's side...


The thump is from the worn ball joints. You will need to determine the type of fluid by getting some on your finger and smelling it to determine what it is. It could be power steering fluid (reddish brown) could be gear oil (greenish), brake fluid (clear) or oil (brownish black). Check your oil, power steering fluid and brake fluid reservoir to see if any of those are low. Check your transmission fluid with the Explorer running, wipe the stick and recheck. Then check the gear box by removing plug and sticking your pinky in to see if you can feel the fluid which should be up level with the plug. Rubbing sound can be a bad tire, sway link that's broken, bad joint on the front axle, or even a failing wheel bearing. Whoever does your motor vehicle inspections (state inspectors) may be the best kind of mechanic for you to consult with regarding suspension issues such as ball joints and bearings. They use a jack and prybar to determine what can move in a way it should NOT be able to move and a state inspection in my state only costs about $12 and that's about the cheapest you can get a diagnosis for anything wrong with a car.

Dark, almost black looks like oil, but not sure, under the vehcile, about a foot from the front passenger tire


It could be oil coming from the oil pan gasket, or rear valve cover gasket,not uncommon for the Escape or the passengerside cv boot or transmission seal, you would have identify exactly where its coming from under the Escape.

How many miles until I need to change my coolant, brakes, engine belts, rotating/pressure for my tires, alignment, windshield wiper blades and fluid, transmission, air filter, power steering fluid, shock...


depends on how you drive, the car will tell you when you need to change the oil, tire pressure, most tire shops will tell you 5000 miles then rotate tires, remember front to back same side do not change right sides for left sides, as far as trans oil, never, wipers depends on what kind of area you are in.

Where is the orfice tube on a 2002 ford taurus 3.0l


If you are talking oil and or trans then those tubes are located to the left and right rear of the engine as you face the front of the engine, Trans is to the left rear and oil to the front or right side of the engine, Keep in mind that if you have a front wheel drive engine then the front of that engine is facing the passengers side wheel well or the right front tire of the car.

Location of oil plug for 98 explorer sport. Is it behind passenger tire and not on bottom but side of pan ? I also see a small plug on rear of same pan.


oil drain bolt should be facing pass front tire. it's a 13mm wrench to remove it unless aftermarket bolt. it is angled like if it runs out it would land on inner portion of rim,right front tire.

Bad oil leak driver side front fender


There is an adapter for the oil filter with 2 lines coming out of it above the drive shaft from the transfer case to the front differential. The O ring on these will go sometimes causing loss of oil. Also check the 2 lines for leaks and cracks.

Blown tire hit the car


i would highly recommend getting it checked out by either a shop or someone you personally know and trust that has auto knowledge... the black oil leak is most likely engine oil... the light and thin aluminum manufacturers use now days can break under just the right conditions... heat and stress... when the tire piece went under your car it may have hit your oil pans(engine and transmission.. red oil) and caused either the pan gaskets to leak.. or maybe even the pans them selves to get cracks... hopefully it's just the gaskets... not too hard to fix and ALOT less costly then new pans... as for the light .. no clue what it's supposed to be...but good luck
