My first place I check is the oil pressure switches there are several good oil lead detection kits available just pour the dye in the oil and use the ultra violet light and special glasses to find the leak I also found leaks on the distributor leaking from the hole in the housing indicating a bas shaft seal just replace the dist. if thats the case.
Please rate this a fixya if its helpful to you Thanks you, Randy

Is there a certain type of gasket or something else when there is a oil leak starting in a 1998 pontiac firefly


clean around the oil pan gasket area well as some oil leaks are actually rocker cover gasket and filter leaks that run down the block and appear as pan leaks.. Check front crankshaft seal as the oil from there also appears as a pan leak

2003 dodge Intrepid 2.7l oil leak above rear main seal after running 20 minutes


rear main seal usually only leaks when the car is running. though oil will slowy drip off afterwards. now the best way to tell is to remove the heat sheild that covers the flywheel and look at it and at the flywheel . is the oil only on the engine side of the cover or is it inside the cover and on the fly wheel. the rear main seal will leak into the bellhousing and on the fly wheel the oil pan gasket will leak on the front of the heat sheild.

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.

Hi i have a 1994 dodge caravan it is leaking oil can this be fix im worry that we would have to save money for a van for my kids thanks


The Chrysler minivan products all had leaking problems. I have had 5 or 6 different Dodge or Plymouth minivans from 88 to 99. How bad is it. The most common thing is Valve cover leaks. Front and rear seals in the engine leak as well as the oil pan gasket. If its leaking a little bit at a time open the hood and look at the front and rear of the engine. Do you see grease and oil that has gone down the sides of the engine? Do you see a lot of grease on the engine with some clean streaks going through it. You may be able to see where its leaking from. If you know someone that knows what their doing have them change the leaky gasket/s. If not you can probably have it repaired for less than buying another van unless other things are seriously wrong with the van.
Hope this helps... Dale

My 1995 dodge intrepid is leaking oil from underneath the car. what is wrong


it could be numerous problems. First need to find out what are under the car is leaking and where it may be leaking from. You have a oil pan that could be leaking, the valve cover could be leaking and the oil running down making it look as if it;s from under the car. Is this oil or transmission fluid?
