I have a 96 Chevy Cav. Looks like I have a fairly significant oil leak on the front side of the engine (belt side). It's losing approximately 1/2 quart of oil every 250-300 miles or so. It looks like it's...


Sounds like the front seal is out. You may have to take the engine out of the car to fix it. It requires removing the harmonic balancer to get to the seal.

I want to learn how to change the oil in my 2004 Chevy Cavalier so I can save some money doing it myself.


you need at least 5 quarts of 5w30, a oil filter purlator pure 1 pl14536 or similar, a 1 1/4" short socket for filter and a 5/8 socket for the plug... (i use 32 mm and 15mm respectively) note the socket for the filter needs to be very short with an extension, or do what i did and buy a wrench and cut it off to fit. start by loosening the drain plug, then the filter cap to help the oil drain faster. then open the filler cap. once the oil is barely dripping put the new filter in the plastic filter cap and lube up the new o rings on the plastic and filter with some of the 5w30. then install it and reinstall the drain plug. once that is done place minimum 5 quarts of oil in the engine and run the car for 5 min or so. then check the level and add oil as necessary. *mine takes about 5.5 quarts to max line.

1996 chevrolet cavalier working on only 2


Your plugs are fouling out probably from excessive wear on the piston rings. Replace the plugs and check them in about 3 days to a week and see how bad they look. Clean them if necessary and reinstall them. Your engine will burn oil that slips past the rings if they are worn. Usually this will happen when the engine is cold and the rings have not expanded. The expansion is normal so what I suggest is at your next oil change use 3 quarts of the regular oil that you use and 1 quart of 20w/50. The thicker oil will help seal the rings a little better. Don't use more than a quart or 2 at the most because it will make your oil pump work harder causing premature failure.

1996 cavalier bad oil leak when running


Overfilled is not good but it would have to be very high to cause leak,There are numerous places in rear of engine that could be leaking.could be leaking from rear of intake,the oilpump drive o ring,but most likly leaking from rear main seal that seals at the rear of the crankshaft and the transmission will need to come out to access this seal. you will need to have the oil leak diagnosed to locate the exact spot.
