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.

My v6 94 Camry is sputtering.


Poor quality fuel could certainly be the cause of this. Adulterated fuel can have a variety of substances in it, from water to diesel.
If it only started to do this after you last filled with the suspect fuel, have it drained before it causes damage.
Camrys will often leak oil onto the exhaust, from several spots,and that causes a hot smell. I think it may be unrelated to the sputtering.

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.


Hello,

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;

I just bout a 1995 nissan pickup, it needs an oil change and the oil pan is leaking. i would like to know if i need a certain type of oil filter, and how i can either fix or install a new oil pan into it....


if you have the 2.4 motor this is your oil filter Fram Extra Guard® - Oil Filter Part # PH3682 the oil pan comes out fairly easy,, you may have to remove some components to clear the sump pump that lays inside the pan, if you have a small enough hole, you can have it welded for pretty cheap, if you want to go that route, be sure whoever is doing the welding, drains the oil, and cleans the spot completely with brake cleaner or some other oil removing solvent, and let dry completely , if its just leaking around the gasket,, drop the pan and replace the gasket

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.

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.

Yes there is a sensor located on the front of engine on the transmission side(single wire). It cannot be "reset". Possibly loose connection at the sensor,or a faulty sensor, OR... you could be losing oil pressure inside the engine somewhere(lets hope not) these engines are designed to run on very low oil pressure compared to cars of days gone by. The sonata 4 cylinder runs about only 12 psi. The V6 is 7.6 psi or more.
So if it is an oil pressure issue it is extremely important not to run the car before it is fixed or you will need an entire engine.

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
