    is it possible that there is an extra gasket for the oil filter? sometimes when you pull off the old one the gasket remains- resulting in an oil leak or a blown up engine

Did you just get your oil changed? If yes, then it may be from some spilling during change. If not, wipe off the oil drip and keep an eye on the leaking area to try to determine where it's coming from.

Clean the filter and pan with a spray cleaner, run engine for a few miutes.
recheck oil leak.
Probably is rear main seal leaking, very common trouble.
If not leaking much, keep drip pan under car to keep floor clean and drive on.
Most cars do leak after they age a little. The black line in the middle of the road is oil leaking from cars. Very common.

Theres a smell of gear oil in the cab when driving.What could it be?


(1) motor oil only smells when its being burned.
(2) the output of the air ducts is in front of the gear shift area.
So, I'm thinking that you have an oil leak in the engine compartment (which may be dripping onto the exhaust system), and the oil has found a hot part of the engine/exhaust, and the smell of heated oil is wafting through the cabin air filter into the passenger compartment through the air ducts in the middle of the dash to just above the gear shift area.
If my theory is correct, you should be able to re-route the burned oil odor by changing the setting of your air ducts by changing the setting from its current setting to a "defrost-type" setting, wherein air entering the passenger compartment comes from the ducts below the windshield, rather then entering through the openings at the center of the console.
Ultimately, your fix will be to locate and resolve the oil leak.

Here's your list of possible culprits for the 1997 Nissan Pathfinder

Priority Action Part Type Cause
1 Inspect - Valve Cover Gasket -- Valve Cover Gasket Leaking Oil.
2 Inspect - Oil Filler Cap -- Oil Filler Cap Damaged or Missing.
3 Inspect - PCV Valve -- Plugged or Damaged PCV Valve.
4 Inspect - Oil Pan Gasket -- Leaking Oil Pan Gasket.
5 Inspect - Head Gasket -- Leaking Head Gasket.
6 Inspect - Oil Pump - divided O-ring or Oil Pump Gasket

If the odor really is gear oil (aka transmission fluid) and not motor oil, then there's a leak coming from the automatic transmission/manual transaxle.
Look under the transmission after the car has been parked awhile, and look for a reddish oil spot/blot/pool. transmission fluid is dyed red just for the purpose of differentiation from other automotive lubricants. You can assist the process of color differentiation by putting newspaper under the vehicle once it's been parked for the night.
Placing enough newspaper may also keep your Pathfinder from depositing a nearly-impossible-to-remove oil stain onto your garage floor overnight.
If you already have an oil stain on the floor, try a spray can of engine degreaser first. Citrus degreaser next.

My 1998 trailblazer has started leaking oil from filter area. what do I need to address first. engine was recently replaced.


Assume this is a 4.3-first, make sure the filter is on tight (it happens)-not knowing how bad the leak is, I would check to see if the oil pressure sender unit is there (that is usually close to where they locate them, and they do leak). If it seems to be coming from where the filter is spun onto the block, remove the filter and make sure the old gasket from the last filter did not get stuck onto the block, then the new filter got installed over top of it (it happens too). If these do not pan out, the oil filter adapter (housing that holds the oil filter) may need to be removed and the gasket replaced.

How do i change the oil in my 2001 hyundai tiburon Se


Hello,
Well your car will use a 5W30 oil. Then to change it you need to -
  1. First thing is to make sure the dipstick that checks the oil level pulls up.
  2. Make sure to have a 5 quarts drain pan to safety store used oil for disposal.
  3. Set the drain pan under the oil plug and then scoot it out about 6 inches so when the oil comes flying out the drain pan catches it.
  4. When all the oil has completely drained then make sure the gasket is on the oil plug.
  5. Now wipe the tip of the oil plug off (some oil plugs pick up metal shavings and you don't want to put that back into the engine.
  6. Put the plug back into the oil pan and snug it up.
  • Now for the oil filter
  1. Move the drain pan back to the oil filter. (will be on the backside of the pan)
  2. With a strap wrench loosen the oil filter just a few turn. Just enough for the oil to begin to drain from it.
  3. Now remove the oil filter completely.
  4. Check on the oil filter housing to make sure the gasket from the oil filter did not stick.
  5. Now take the new oil filter and inspect it for dent or holes and also make sure the new gasket is on it and not torn or severely cracked.
  6. Take a few drops of oil and rub it onto the new filters gasket to help that gasket seal.
  7. Now screw the new filter on the oil filter housing.
  8. Clean off and old excess oil in the area with a shop rag.
  9. Now add the required amount or oil (4.5 quarts)
  10. Start the car and right away get out and look underneath the car for leaks.
  11. If no leaks turn the car off and check the oil level to insure a proper fill.
  12. Job finished
Regards, Tony

The oil pressure sending unit screws into the engine block so you will need to look between the oil pan and the head.I suggest that you try tightening your oil filter first.

1994 camry oil leak


Hi Toyota Ed
The silver plate seems to be a blank as there are no oil pipes running into.
The leak seems to be weeping along a secondary sump if that makes sense.
If looking from the bottom you have a black sump that bolts onto a silver alloy cast that then seems to be bolted to the lower engine block this seems to have a flexi seal of sealant ( can feel it where it has seeped out) this is were i think the leak is comming from.
Especially when you stop the motor you can see it seeping out around here, but as you know oil sometimes can travel in weird ways and i will check again around the blank plate that you mentioned.
Would i be able to repair it if it is the main sump/ gasket and do you have to remove the motor?
