The problem is with rubber seals at the entry of each plug causing oil to leak to the engine. What you need is new ones. Check the plugs affected and replace them too. By the way, oil leak to the engine will make the sub' to have a power loss of upto about 50% in an extreme case the car will refuse to start while cold!

How can you determine if your oil leak is coming from your turbo on a 2002 volvo s60


Do you have a external leak or does your engine oil drop but you can not see a leak. My S60 had a leak and it was from the return pipe from the turbo to the sump.You can remove the belly plate and look from the bottom at the back off the engine.You will see the return pipe at the bottom of the turbo. If it does not leak at the there the turbo might be worn and it is blowing the oil into the intake.To check remove the intake hose and check for excess oil in the intake system.

It's my Subaru impreza wagon with an oil leak n when I drive it 50 mph or more n then park after I see fog (smokes)coming from the catalytic cover


Have the engine pressure washed then change the oil and install dye that glows under a UV light, then put the car on the lift and look for oil leaks after you drive it about 25 miles. Yes this is best left to a shop as the light is about $100.00 and the dye about $5.00. You can do the pressure wash top and bottom of engine at the car wash

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.

Oil leak from the bottom of the engine compartment


oil pan seal could be bad, or oil drain plug is loose or that seal could be bad as well, both are an easy fix and very cheap

Leaking oil from bottom of engine. Looks like it is coming from a rectangular aluminum plate. Perhaps this is the bottom of the engine or oil pan.


There are several places it could be coming from.
The primary one is the oil pan. This would be the pan directly under the engine. It has the oil pan drain plug in it. If you are unfamiliar with the underside of automobiles you need to be sure you are not looking at the transmission oil pan. The first pan will be the oil pan. If you are mechanically inclined and have basic tools you can try and tighten up the oil pan bolts around the circumference of the pan.
Normally if the leak is from the pan it will appear wet all around the bottom. However the leak could also be from the rear main seal at the back of the engine. This can leak down to the pan and appear to come from the oil pan. Most of the time a leak from this will be in one spot of the pan, leaving the front section dry.
The other place is from the valve covers. You can check this by look under the hood at the side of the engine. If it's wet along the sides, that might be where it's from.

The only way you are going to know for sure is to get under it and look for yourself or take it somewhere to have looked at. You should have time to do this as long as you maintain the oil level in the engine.
I hope this helps.

Likely what you are looking at is where the coolant is dripping, not where it's coming from. I have no idea why if you have an external leak, that it somehow is getting back inside there to get into the oil.(pretty much impossible)
Best guess is that you have a bad water pump that is beginning to leak. If in fact you have coolant in your engine oil as you say you do, most likely cause for that is a blown cylinder head gasket.
If you actually have no idea what is going on there, have a good shop look at it. Leaks lead to overheating which can cost you an engine.

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.

93 explorer dripping oil over night from bottom of car


clean the srea and watch, tracing back to the source. The oil can leak from the front seal, rear main seal,Pan gaske, or come from the top of engine. Chances are greater it's coming from the front because of fan draft. good luck

Engine leaking oil towards the back


the best way to attack an oil leak like this is to have the engine steam cleaned of all oil top and bottom and then drive it for about 20 miles and look up top and bottom of engine for the source of the leak, your leak could be the valve cover, the pan gasket or the crankshaft rear main seal or a combination of all three, reember the oil runs back and down, so where the oil drips on the ground is not always where the oil is leaking from
