Oil leak seem to come from starter. What can it be - main bearing oil seal?


Oil leaking around a starter is usually one of three possible things.
If it is motor oil, then suspect the rear main seal.
It it is auto trans fluid, it could be from the transmission front seal or the torque converter
If you have a manual transmission, it could be clutch fluid leaking from the slave cylinder, or a leaky front seal from the transmission.

Pt cruiser is using a quart of oil every 100 miles


Should be a leaking oil pressure switch.
First, check to oil filter, area to see if the oil is obviously coming out around the filter. Filter and area around it should be dry,.
There has been rare instance of the "o-ring" on the top of the oil filter sticking to the engine when the filter was changed, and the new oil filter then won't seal because there are now 2 gaskets between the filter and the engine block.
Check the engine drain plug. Is it loose or stripped? That area should also be clean and dry.
The valve cover gasket should be clean and dry all the way around.
Most common cause for that much oil use is the oil pressure switch, should be leaking with the motor running.

My oil is leaking out when the engine is running. oil is all over the bottom of my 2004 dodge stratus. could it be a front seal? it is a 4 door sedan


It could be several things. But you will need to do some things to pin point where it is coming out. I would recommend steam cleaning your engine. Or at least washing it, to get the oil off. After the engine drys it will be easier to spot where the leak is with a clean engine. Ihave had good luck using kitchen flour sprinkled on the suspected areas to find out where the problem is. But you make up your own mind. The front seal is a possibility, but the valve cover gaskets, oil cooling lines, etc. are all possibilities. Chrysler vehicles seem to develop oil leaks at the valve cover gaskets far more often than the front seal.

Hi. What parts are needed to replace engine oil leak? Valve cover, front timing cover gasket?


An oil leak can come from from several different places.

It could be from a valve cover, oil filter, oil pan, dip stick, oil drain line, oil pump, and a few other places.

I'd try to see where the leak is coming from first. Clean your engine bay and grab a bunch of lights.

Light up the engine bay and see where the leak is coming from. Once you find the leak, you'll know what to replace.

Replacing everything is just spending needless money. I'd also suggest checking to make sure you're not over filled.

Have oil leak not heavy, but it leaks any answer were it could be coming from..


Valve Covers, Head Gaskets, Oil Pan Seal and a number of other spots. You'll need to clean the motor with Gunk Engine cleaner and then look for the largest build ups of oil and crud to get a better idea where it is.

98 Subaru leaking oil


Oil leak will not change run temp but can cause a fire.
The smoke is the oil burning on the engine. The 1st thing you need to do is clean the oil off the engine.
Next top oil off to the full line on the dip stick.Now start the engine hold idle up to around 1600 rpm for 1 to 2 minutes keep engine run and look for the oil leak. Don't get caught in any moving parts and things will be hot so be careful. Most likely from your valve cover.

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.

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.
