It might be the oil cooling line that goes to the oil cooler next to the radiator.

Is the black piece plastic or metal? And how is it shaped?

Oil leak on back driver side motor in a 1994 dodge caravan


Place a piece of white paper/cardboard on the ground below where the leak is coming from soon after the engine is turned off. This should help you locate where exactly the oil is dripping from, and should help identify what is leaking. If the oil is black/brown/gold, it's probably engine oil. If it's reddish/brown, it's probably transmission fluid. If it's clear, it may be brake fluid or power steering fluid (from the rack/pinion). Check the fluid levels for whatever you determine it may be. If it's engine oil, you may have leaking valve cover gaskets or a leaking rear seal on the engine. If it's transmission fluid, you may have bad transmission cooler lines or leaking from axle seals. Check the master cylinder and brake lines if it's brake fluid, and check the rack/pinion if it's power steering fluid.

Oil leak


How long is a piece of string ? without a good look under the bonnet i couldnt say but make sure the engine breather is clean and not clogged as this would cause a build up of back pressure which will cause the oil top leak from everywhere possible

I have a 2000 cougar and its leaking oil when its parked theres a medium oil leak on floor what is it.


the best way to locate the oil leak, if you can't see where it is coming from is to park the car overnight , and put a large piece of cardboard under the engine, so where the oil leak is, it will drop onto the cardboard, then the next day, look under the car, and see where the oil is on the cardborad, the leak should be in the area of where it is on the cardboard. also, the leaks could be anything from the oil pan gasket, oil sending unit, valve covers, intake manifold gasket. or the rear main seal. hope that this information was very helpful to you.

Oil leaking or burning


this can be very simple to solve,after you've driven the car for,say,20 miles or maybe even 15 miles,place a piece of plain brown cardboard under the motor on ground.under the motor.make sure the engines not running,just slide the cardboard under the motor on the ground.you can even put a big piece under the whole front of car,from side to side. your whole motor is in front,including the transmission. black fluid is oil leak,red fluid is transmission fluid. if your engines burning oil,then you'll be adding oil to your engine constantly. depending on how often you drive your vehicle. just remember black fluids oil leak,red fluids,transmission fluid leak. if your motors smoking black while running, that's oil burning with your gas. you may only have a simple issue,your check engine light on? autozone or advance auto parts store can read the codes for free!! thank you,for choosing fixya.com

My ford focus is leaking oil think it might be gearbox oil,


Is the oil you see reasonably clean or is it black. The gearbox oil would be cleaner than the engine oil. Gearbox leaks would most likely come from one of the following:-
  1. Drive shafts
  2. Gear change lever inputs,
  3. Speedo cable
  4. Reverse light switch
  5. Drain plug
  6. Input shaft seal (inside the bell housing).
Pig a piece of paper under the car when you park it at night to give you an idea where the drip is located and inspect the area above that position

Black iol is coming out from under the car..if i


hi from uk if it was my car i would investigate this oil leak whether it is leaking whilst running or not either way if leak is bad? you could end up with more expense if engine seizes crankshaft or other components? the fact you mention this is 2007 model and hyundai warranty in uk is 5yrs i would visit dealers ? if this is a reccuring problem with this engine ? they should have recall for check/repair however! you have nothing to lose with a visit i would have leak verified 1st before you risk expense in some serious damage ? this may turn out to be something simple ? oil filter not tightened correctly?? for example oil leaks start small but do get worse sometimes with warninguntill light /guage tells you which may be on a busy highway in heavy traffic again with result i am sure you can imagine ? do the right thing and have it checked ! a stitch in time ? ring any bells ??

Oil leaking from the gasket on the metal piece under oil fltr


Make sure that the oil filter is tight. Usually they only leak if dirt was in the gasket when the filter was installed or the filter wasn't tightened enough.

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
