First thing you have to wash the place of leak (if u u can with warm water)
After driving check again then you will find from where is the leak
Third if u finds the leak is from oil filter so you have to remove it and see is the seal is fine? If yes and still leaking so u have to clean place very well and seal also.
Then apply slightly little oil on seal and tight it well with tool.

If it

Oil empty after driving 1000 miles after oil change


If there was no problem with oil consumption before the service then the only items connected to the oil are the oil filter and the sump plug. Check around the oil filter for the leak. If the oil filter was removed leaving the filter gasket stuck to the block and a new filter fitted then the 2 gaskets will allow the oil to leak out. Check the tension of the oil filter and if it is extremely tight then the gasket may be leaking at the top of the can at the seam. conversely if the filter is not tight enough then the gasket will be leaking. Check the sump plug as there should be a copper washer under the plug but some mechanics use a fiber washer and this allows the plug to come loose and leak or worse to fall out completely.

Change Spark Plugs but engine starts to leak oil


??? Sounds purely coincidental... You may want to look at where the oil is coming from and fix that issue. Oil pan, Oil filter, oil cooler, oil sending unit, intake manifold, valve covers, rear seal....

Oil leak 2000 alero, just replaced plug, not it, leaked out all the oil after I drove it 20 miles, please help, could it be a gasket or what


Check the oil filter. The old gasket might be stuck on the engine (two gaskets stuck together), or the new gasket might be defective, misaligned or missing.

1994 GMC Safari Oil leaked out for no reason. Put more oil in...look under van and oil is leaking like a water fall. Turn Van off oil leak calms to a trickle. Other than the oil water fall the van runs...


Check the oil filter adaptor bracket. My 1993 Safari had the same problem, and the adaptor bracket and seal were bad. Replacement fixed the leak.

Oil leaking from some sort of plug above the oil filter


If the leak is coming directly from above the oil filter it is more than likely the oil pressure switch is leaking. The seal around the Oil pressure switch could have gone bad and now it is leaking.

The oil pressure switch is located right above the the oil filter and above the cooling system cross pipe.
