I have a 99 Blazer that started leaking oil near rear of block. At that time plenty of oil pressure...I was driving to get it checked and noticed I had no oil pressure. Returned home with no problems.


The oil sneding unit is back there on top of the engine. Some times when they go bad they will leak oil threw the top/plug. This is the problem. It is about 3" long Sit in the middle of the engine all the way at the back.

Oil leaking from above engine. what could it be?


someone installed an aftermarket oil cooler on the bottom of the hood and it has sprung a leak. that is the only way i could see that oil would be coming from above the engine. of course you could have oil leaking from old valve cover gaskets on the top of the block. you could also have a crankcase pressure problem and oil is accumulating in the air cleaner via the breather tube on the top of the engine.

The oil light comes on when i'm stopped and when i drive the oil light goes off however i opened the hood and i've notice on the side of the engine block i see oil moisture around the block and oil that...


The first thing to do is check the oil level and top it up and then check it quite often until you get the leak fixed.
To find the source of the leak, wipe the side of the engine down with a rag to clean off the excess oil. Start it and let it idle while you watch for oil to start coming out. Focus on the area where the oil stops. Occasinal reving the engine may help. I'd be looking at valve cover gaskets as the most likely cause., They are an easy back yard fix. Hope this helps.

Engine light came on and coolant leak


You don't want to overfill your engine with oil. I'd recomend you change your oil and put the right amount in it, because chances are, if you are that low, it was time for an oil change anyway. As for your coolant leak, check your hoses and radiator, if you don't find anything look your engine block over for antifreeze residue. Usually when your water pump wears out and starts leaking it makes a big mess.

Looks like the oil is leaking out right above the


oil filter screws onto an adapter housing which also has the pressure sending unit on it (above oil filter). This adapter housing bolts to the block with 3 bolts. if oil appears to be leaking from where the adapter housing meets the block (especially at the rear side of engine near bottom), then you need to replace the siamese o-rings between the adapter housing and the block ($12 part at dealer). remove lowest 12mm bolt and loosen top 2 12 mm bolts(top 2 bolts won't come out unless you drop the engine down, but loosening 1 inch is all you need), replace o-rings and retighten bolts. be careful not to get dirt/grit between block and adapter. just finished doing this to son's 95 2.7 v6 which was leaving an 8" puddle of oil after idling for only 1 minute-worked perfect

Camaro leak


it may be the back of the intake leaking where it mates to the block, you do not have to remove the engine to repair, if thats what it is.

Oil leaks


First of all, which engine does your cavalier have? Some GM engines around that time had problems with the intake manifold gasket leaking oil where the manifold bolted to the top of the engine block, but if I remember correctly, it was in the 3.1 liter V-6 engines. If your car has a 4 cylinder engine, I am not aware of any inherent oil leak problems.
BTW, if your oil light has been on for 2 weeks, without your adding any oil, you probably have more serious problems than just an oil leak by now. Maybe not a solution, but it's a place to start.
