I would take it back to the garage that put the clutch in. The car not going into 1st, 2nd, or reverse is a transmission problem not an engine problem.

I would take it back to the garage that put the engine to verify whether the engine is leaking or the transmission.

Good luck on this repair.

Leaking, overheating --- *fixed* then puff of white smoke 1 week later


I'm not taking sides in this. So what I am going to say is more or less neutral.
There is a big possibility you damaged the head gasket when the engine overheated last week. The dealership would have no way of knowing this if it was not yet leaking into the engine when they replaced the water pump.
Once the water pump leak was fixed, the system would be running under normal pressure which could finish off the weak head gasket.
You can not see a damaged head gasket without removing the cylinder head. And you have two heads with two gaskets.
So, IF the head gasket is now blown there is a good chance they did not know it last week. It could also be a cracked cyl head or leaking intake manifold gasket. Or all of the above.

Oil leak 2000 alero, just replaced plug, not it, leaked out all the oil after I drove it 20 miles, please help, could it be a gasket or what


Check the oil filter. The old gasket might be stuck on the engine (two gaskets stuck together), or the new gasket might be defective, misaligned or missing.

There are many things that can cause oil loss. The most common are a loose or missing oil drain plug, or a leaking oil filter. With either of these problems the oil can leak out very fast. Your mechanic will locate the oil leak as a first step, then I am sure they will then proceed to inspect the engine for internal damage due to oil loss. I would recommend a leakdown test to check for piston or ring damage, also you need to pay close attention to whether the engine has any new noises. If the leakdown test shows good results, and there are no new noises in the engine, your engine has a pretty good chance of surviving this ordeal. There are many possibility for the leak source, like worn seals, or the tow previously listed items, be sure to repair the engine where it does not leak, because loosing the oil can destroy the engine. Good luck with it.

If you have a vacuum modulator on the trans,it could have a bad diaphram and **** trans fluid into the engine.
Now I do not know what model or unit trans you have. No vacuum mod,then the dealer is correct.
You can look just above the trans oil pan, near the rear, for that part and easily change yourself. Get at auto parts store. It will be the thing with a 3/16 vacuum hose on it,going to a port or vacuum switch on intake manifold

2005 mazda 3 2.3l that is burning oil (no leaks)


possibly the pcv but check if your cars exhaust smoke is blueish or white in color if it does and your car doesnt have an oil leak then sure its burning engine oil along with fuel, the piston rings is defective, since you replaced engine oil the additive that the owner has put with the oil to prevent blowby is gone thats why it starts burning oil.....

Engine oil get less every two weeks in my pajero 4m40


Diesels do lose a little oil out the blow-by tube. If the engine temp. is higher then normal then you will lose more then normal amounts. If you are not leaking it then you are burning it, Possibly worn rings, head-gasket, or oil leak inside turbo. 68 MPH and higher doesn't sound unusual, is the engine still stock?

Oil Leak


My sons 01 Aurora kept saying low oil, but there was no leak and we had the oil changed the day before. After looking in the owners manual, this car takes 7 1/2 quarts of oil when you change the oil and put in a new oil filter. The mechanic claimed he put 5 quarts in and checked it but he couldn't of. Over a week and hundreds of miles later the oil hasn't dropped at all!

Leaking Coolant / Broken Pulleys /etc


Pressure test the system and check for leaks, use a radiator pressure testing tool kit. Sounds like the radiator may have been damaged by the parts breaking and flying about.
