You will have to answer that, you have the car in front of you. Crank up the car and see what is leaking. I dont know of anything above the battery.

What could cause the oil to run out above the starter only while running?

It seems to me that you might have a problem with your head gasket, also check the valve cover gasket, for the heads gasket if this is the problem you might want to take it to a mechanic shop, and if is your valve cover gasket you can do this your own self, ask auto zone for the tienen process make sure you put silicone on the proper edges good luck!!!!

Is there a troubleshooting manual for a 1993 Jeep Cherokee Sport, 4 Wheel Drive. 4.0 or do I need to look in a manual? I have an oil leak by the oil filter and can't find where its coming from.

try going to car wash and use the degreaser spray. clean up under the car real well in that area, and under the hood. spray it all off good and watch to see where the oil leaks from.

What are common causes for engine oil being burned under the hood but the leak is out of line of sight?

It very well may be comeing from under the engine, sounds like there is an oil leak that only leaks under presure and is leaking on to the hot exhast.

I have a 2001 oldsmobile alert 3.4L engine and I'm

If you are losing that much oil then and that close to the start it sounds like the Rear Main Seal is bad. The rear main seal is right where the trans and the motor connect which is right close to the starter location. Jack the vehicle up in the air, if you can see where the engine and the transmission connect, drops of oil then the issue is coming from there.

Another thing to do, is to get some degreaser, spray the bottom of the engine, let the degreaser work and then wash off the bottom of the motor. By doing this you will be able to tell better where the leak is actually coming from.

Have you had your oil changed recently?

Replacing fuel filter 2000 impala

Disconect battery and releive the fuel pressure by opening gas cap and under hood with fuel pressure tester. then you need two open ended wrenches.. Go to driver side rear tire and just in front of the tire about a foot under the car you will see the fuel filter remove filter mounting bracket apply one wrench to filter nut and one to fuel line side and turn oposite directions, might want to spray with some penetrating oil fist to break loose, then remove plastic clip from other side of the fuel filter and it should come right out.
