If it is on the top portion of the motor, it is most likely the valve cover. if it is toward the bottom it could be the oil pan.

Excessive oil build left rear brake caliper all over. i see caked on oil in above lines but no leak in that area


Hi, For safety first please check the Brake Fluid level and if necessary add but don't drive it untal you can have someone check the brakes before you take it to the shop. That said, look down the left side of the undercarriage for oil caked on cross members on on the left side of engine. This is most likely blow by from the oil leak. Please provide more info as you trace the leak down a bit closer.

Oil leakage by the transmission &engine


Need to inspect closer and make sure the exact place the oil is coming from....Most common places that leak are around valve pan cover which is located on top of motor and in alot of cases can run down back of motor onto transmission or bottom or motor. Another place is the oil pan which is located on bottom of motor. If leaking from either of these you would need to replace the gaskets. Two other places that are common for leaks is the front and rear seals in the motor. Try cleaning bottom half of motor off with a degreaser in the area where you see yhe oil dripping and then you should be able to see exactly where it is coming from. If the leak is underneath where the transmission is bolted to the motor this would indicate that the rear seal is bad. To replace it you will have to take transmission out to do this and if this is the case and your truck has a automatic transmission have that seal replaced also. Yhe reason for this is if you have to take transmission out then you may as well change transmission seal also but remember only if the transmission is a automatic.....hope this helps and good luck....Please rate this post...

1993 lexus es300 oil leak from rear of motor only when you run the turn off


The oil is always leaking but when you are moving it is getting blown off and all over the place. What must be done is to have the entire rear of engine near leaking area pressure washed and then a special dye put in the engine oil, then after the car is driven for 20 miles or so it will be racked and the leak area looked at with a special light that makes the dye glow and thereby pinpointing the leaking seal.

Replaced rear main seals and oil pressure sending on a 2000 z71


Check the oil filter housing and the cooler lines at the housing. The oil filter housing gaskets are good for no more than 15k to 30k miles if your lucky. The lines at the housing are easy to strip out when you reinstall them so take your time if you do it yourself an once you are finished and ready to start the truck, let it run for about 15 minutes and constantly check the area for leaks prior to road testing the vehicle.
