Start at the top and use a degreasant to wash away some of the oil from the topmost part of the engine and locate/fix any leaks you find,then work your way downwards until all leaks sorted.PLEASE DO NOT USE "OIL LEAK ADDITIVES"they are only good if someone is trying to sell thier car and wants to ****** the new buyer.....(not nice)

How good is a Nissan Pathfinder of 100,000 mileage,and durability?


Path finders are pretty good vehicles. If the drive train has been taken care of, it can last up 300,000 miles. At 100,000 miles, there will be some oil leaks. It shouldn't be puddling on the ground though. (walk away) All cars though, at 100,000 to 130,000 will start needing suspension parts, IE... tie rods, ball joints, struts, ect... It's just about that tie for the mileage that they start wearing out. Not all at once though.

Smokes on start up


Smokes blue on cold startup = leaking valve seals, which really don't affect drivability if it stops 1-2 seconds after startup. To fix you need new valve seals/heads rebuilt.

If it smokes while under load, then the rings are worn, letting oil seep past the rings into the compustion chamber.

Have you let this car run low on oil? Leaking valve seals usually present themselves if the car has been sitting a while, drying out the seals/cracking them. Worn rings should only present themselves after very very high milage, such as 300,000 miles or more. Somebody has not changed the oil on a regular basis, or just never changed the oil, or only changed the oil like every 20,000 miles.

To bring your engine back to normal, you will have to overhaul the engine and have the heads rebuilt as well.

The best recommended oil for lincoln 1997 4.6 L V8 with over 300,000 miles also what would be the most fuel efficent recommended brand spark plug


originally it calls for 5w-30, but you could probably go to 10-30 or even 10w-40 since at 300,000 miles it seems logical that clearances are not what they used to be-and congratulations, that is some achievement!

HI, I WANT TO BUY A MITSUBISHI DIAMANTE 97 130000 MILES. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS CAR? THANKS.


Main problems are computers failing ( especially the one that controls the auto) and random wires breaking.
If it has been looked after and had regular oil changes should be good for another 30 to 80000 miles if maintained properly.
Look for black oil and smoke on over run , Old radiator missing fins, rusty radiator water which should be green or blue ( signs of neglect)

1997 toyota landcruiser colorado rear axle oil leak, oil is leaking from the axle casing into the handbrake drum on the nearside rear.


You need to have your seal replaced. I would recommend installing new bearing while you're at it.
