Question about Chevrolet Suburban

1 Answer

I have a 1997 Chevy Suburban. Oil is leaking and dripping down the oil filter. The filter is tight. Do you know where it could be coming from? Also, my rear passenger's side signal/brake light is not working. I replaced the bulb but it didn't fix the problem. Any ideas?

The engine oil cooler lines are a common problem and they plug into the oil filter adaptor above the oil filter via quick connect fittings,as for your brake light check your ground wire first.

1997 hyundai leaking oil is it the oil filter and where is that located


The only way to know for sure where the oil is coming from is to get under it and look, There are way to many different places it could be coming from. For example could be leaking from a valve cover on back side of motor and running down the engine and dripping from the oil pan but its not the oil pan just looks like it

My 1996 Toyota Camry is leaking oil in little spots on the ground when its parked, where could it be leaking from and how can i fix it?


You cannot repair the leak until you determine where it is leaking. More than likely it is leaking from the oil filter, oil pressure sending unit, or valve cover gasket. Check around the oil filter for a leaks and if you see oil on the filter then replace it. Check the oil pressure sending unit and if it is leaking replace it. Wipe all the oil off the bottom of the engine and any other place you see oil. Now place newspapers on the floor under the car and then start the engine and let it run for about 10 minutes and then shut down. Wait overnight and you can see where the leak is coming from.

Chevy S-10 Pickup Oil Leak


You sure the oil comes from the plug and doesnt just run down from above and drip of it? Clean aroun the area and take a drive look again and make sure its not cming from anywhere else. If its the plug, you just need to replace the washer on the plug next time you oil change. do not try to just tighten the plug. If you buist the thread in there that an expensive repair. It should not be very tight as the washer should seal it.

Try tightening your rocker arm covers. Also called valve covers. The little bolts get loose and oil seeps down the side and drips on the exhaust manifold. This gives off smoke.

Found oil underneath but cannot see any oil dripping from the bottom of the engine? the oil filter is on tight, i checked the dip stick and the oil is full.also is ther any history of front end problems...


That series of Jimmys and Blazers are known for front wheel bearings failing. If you start hearing a load rubbing or dry grinding have them checked and when you replace one do them both. With the oil problem, could it be transmission fluid? You might have a leaky transmission cooler line.

Oil is dripping from a black plastic panel in the


If i am not mistaken on those vehicles the oil filter is remotley located under that plastic shield. The most likley cause is residual oil left behind when the last person did an oil change. If I am wrong please give me more info.
