There is supposed to be a washer on the drain plug. It's either plastic or copper. It's either missing or more likely embedded with dirt or grit and won't seal properly. Simply pick up a new one when you do your next oil change and replace it then. Always wipe the oilpan off around the drain and clean the drain plug and washer before you re-install them. Hope this helps.

05 malibu leaking oil from rear of engine


This may be from excessive pressure in the sump from blow-by from the compression process . It is from a blocked PCV valve that is not equalising that pressure. I have also known oil leaks to happen because the rear main bearing cap is leaking oil past the join around the bolts (loose) or no sealing compound used in assembling the rear main bearing.. I would look at the PCV valve as it is the cheapest test first.. Check that the oil is not coming from the front gear box seal or torque converter seal.

Oil leak on driveway coming from front of engine


Dear Sir,
Here is the oil leaking Problem Identifying Technique

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket are common.

  • The intake manifold plenum gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption/burning and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.
  • External oil leaks from valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets (front or rear), and the rear crankshaft (rear main) seal area are common. The rear main seal is an unlikely source. Normally, the bearing cap mating surfaces (as well as the sealing surface between the oil pan and bearing cap) are the source for the leaks.
  • Engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from theintake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.
  • If the oil filter casing shows signs of distortion from excessive oil pressure, theoil pump should be replaced.
  • Often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
  • Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

    Why is my 1992 cut;*** leaking oil already replaced head gasket could it be leaking from the block?


    Hello Tina,
    The most common ENGINE oil leaks come from a valve cover gasket, a front or rear main engine seal, a timing cover gasket/or seal, oil pan gasket/oil filter/housing/drain plug, or a faulty sensor. If you can't see where it's leaking from the topside, have it hoisted for further inspection.
    Good Luck, i hope this helps & thanks for using FixYa.

    Having an oil leak at the bottom of my camry, not the oil pan gasket what else could it be.


    There are three other area's that can leak, here they are in order of how often they occur
    1.Engine Valve cover gasket(s) (2 if V6 engine), oil runs down the engine and drips off the pan.
    2.Rear crankshaft seal leaking
    3.Front crankshaft seal leaking. Oil is blown back by air pressure while driving and rips off of pan.

    Have oil leak not heavy, but it leaks any answer were it could be coming from..


    Valve Covers, Head Gaskets, Oil Pan Seal and a number of other spots. You'll need to clean the motor with Gunk Engine cleaner and then look for the largest build ups of oil and crud to get a better idea where it is.

    1987 ford ranger 2.9 leaking oil


    Hello, this is probaly your rear main seal on the back of your crankshaft. I would check and see if it is a two piece or a one piece main seal. You sound like a knowledable mechanic so this would not be to heard if you have taken a oil pan gasket off a ranger. I have a ranger and did an oil pan in a parking lot without jacking it up and removing the motor and shock like the manual says so I know that takes some skill. So, look up the seal in your Haynes or Chilton Auto Manual and I would replace this seal. Oil near your starter and the back of the oil pan is a classic sign of a rear main seal. Now, to get the seal in out you can refer to your manual and just remember to torque your rear main bearing cap to the proper torque when your done and also try to clean the bottom of your oil sump screen while your down there that would be a benefit later on. A tip to get a stuck seal out is to take an old wire tester the one that looks like an ice pick; this can push out a stuck rear oil seal very easily. I hope this helps your problem and I wish you the best of luck. If you have any other questions just email me ok.
