Sounds like your oil leak is finding hot exhaust manifold and smoking/smelling. Make sure the oil filler caps and breather hoses that connect to the valve cover (Top of Engine) are attached securely. Try and determine exactly where the oil leak originates [Valve covers - top side, oil pan - underneath, or shaft seals - front and rear of engine, or left and right ends with the sideways (transverse) engine mounting]. Also check oil level - a blown head gasket or cracked head or block could lose coolant into the oil reservoir, causing an overfilled and thus leaking situation... this will show up as a creamy looking substance on the dipstick. If the engine is not making any other signs of abnormality, strange knocks or clicks, overheating, or losing gross amounts of fluids, make sure it has enough oil in the crankcase and drive it to a reputable mechanic for a true evaluation of the problem.

Have oil leak that goes on my exhaust where could it be comeing from pls Mercedes clk 320 cdi 2005

First and foremost would any technician would do it your point is to clean it very well and dry try to produce the same conditions and check it you want to observe where the leak could be coming from it could be coming from another area and leaking down to the exhaust there's nothing really that has oil on it that's going to be at the end of your car I'm sorry at the rear of your car does not nothing is going to be really oily will you have your brakes but that's something else brake fluids going to be clear so if you have oil you just need to follow the spot to see where it goes it could be coming from your oil pan gasket all the way down that's just my shot in the dark

1995 Camry Oil Pressure Sender location

Yes, is it the 4 or V6? I think it is either the oil pump shaft seal, or the crankshaft nose seal. The second one can be damaged by work in that vicinity such as removal of the crankshaft sprocket.

The oil pressure sender is not at that location on the 4-cyl or the 3VZ V6, but on the 1MZ V6 it is on the front face of the engine block below the alternator mount.

Oil leak ouring out when engine is running . no leak when not running. while facing the frony of car its on left side or passenger side of engine. what do you think.


This means there is leak somewhere. One or more worn out oil seal is the cause of the problem.

The engine has a lot oil seals which prevents oil from leaking.

First, you need to look under the car, to get the exact spot of the leakage.

Use a touch light so that you can see clearly. Clean under the engine that is stained with oil with a rag and observe where the oil is coming out from. So, when there is a fresh leak, you can get the exact spot. If there is no more oil in the car, put some.....

You said there is a card board under your engine; remove the card board to see clearing where the leaking is coming from.

Also, you asked if the engine has to come out; yes, the engine will come out. Though it might not be the whole engine. Part or the whole engine will come out, depending on where the leak is coming from. The leak is inside the engine, this is why is has to come out.

When you get the spot, you will have to bring out that part of the engine. Get a oil seal kit and do the replacement. This is no going to a easy task because it require a lot of man power. So you can call a friend to assist you.

But if this task is difficult for you, you might call a mechanic........

Below is what the oil seal and it replacement kit looks like;

It may be coming from the top of the engine and dripping down. I'm assuming you inspected under the vehicle and ruled out a leak around the oil pan gasket and front/rear seals. Check the valve cover gaskets for possible signs of leakage. It is really hard to pin point where the oil is coming from via chat without actually looking at the engine itself.

What type of engine oil does it take?

It calls for 5W-30 conventional, but if you have no leaks and want to make the engine last as long as possible, switch to full synthetic 5W-30.

Toyota Camry 1995 model. Oil leaking, How to fix it? recommend a place where i can fix this problem. how much it will cost?

How to fix it and how much will it costs will depend on where the leak is. Best thing to do is observe on the floor the exact spot of the dripping , and then trace upwards to see where it comes from. Most common oil leakage is from improperly screwed oil filter or gasket seal on said filter. Distributor seal is another source of leakage and also valve cover gaskets. When you say "leaking" i assume it is an external leak. If oil consumption can be visible in the exhaust, such as white smoke, it is a different story altogether.

2006 hyundai sonata oil filter leak

I finally figured this out. I was putting the o-ring on incorrectly. I actually had two o-rings installed.
The o-ring should not be visible when it is tightened down. The plastic should be touching the metal housing. The o-ring sits inside the housing, right above the threads, but not at the top. Two pictures attached._388.jpg
