Question about 1998 Plymouth Breeze

1 Answer

1998 Plymouth Breeze Leaking oil. Not an immense amount, but enough that I would like to get it fixed. I have gone to many so called "experts" and well lets just say im frustrated. Some have said that it was the crankshaft seal... Then yesturday I took it to yet another, He had said its probably the head gasket? Now correct me if I am wrong, but if it were the Head Gasket wouldnt I be leaking coolant as well?? I thought I would try to change the PVC valve as I know that one that is not functioning properly, may deliver increased pressure to a so called weak spot? I was also goin to try an oil treatment such as Lucas or Rear Main? Any other ideas of what could be the solution to my seemless never-ending problem? Thankyou so much frustrated in PA

The head gasket has been redesigned ( a multi layered design) for the 4 cylinder. Oil leaks are common. The coolant doesn't always leak with this condition. It is far cheaper to just add oil as needed. However,the new head gasket is far better than the original. be sure to surface the head to get the best possible repair. looking into the engine compartment the leak would be on the right side of the head on the firewall side.

1998 Plymouth Breeze, heater does not blow warm air

Check your coolant level. Replace your thermostat and flush coolant system. If you bought used and it never has worked, make sure that the heater core has not been bypassed. If it has, it will probably have to be replaced(was probably leaking on previous owner)

Oil leak in a 98 plymouth breeze 2.0

I've had a 1990 Acclaim, a 1990 Shadow, and a 1998 Breeze, all have a head gasket leak. The Breeze was the only one to have oil leak and it was on the rear of the engine. I'd guess that's your problem.

Car leaking oil around oil filter but it's not the filter itself.

Hello scolletti1: The part that sits directly above or just to the right of the oil filter is the oil pressure switch or sender unit. Depending on your dash. If you have a light it is called a switch, If you have a oil gage it is called a sender unit. The faster the RPM the faster the oil leak. Should you need any further help just ask? Thank You for using FixYa. Roger
