An oil leak can be from almost anywhere. One good place to start is to make sure your oil filter is tight. Oil pressure sending units do go bad and can leak a good amount of oil. Then there is the rear main seal that sometimes leaks and of coarse the oil pan. The best thing to do is to raise the front of the car up and put it on stands, start the engine and slide under to see where its actually leaking.

Final drive speed sensor causing Trac light and rough shifting. Metal dust on the sensor. Have the transmission filter and fluid serviced. This should have been done at 60,000 miles. You may get an ABS light too. Service the sensor. Perform an OBDII scan for stored faults.

1999 pontiac firebird blowing gray smoke drives fine short distance but will not restart after parked was low on oil and had just had recent oil change and no noticeable oil puddles....master air flow...


Sounds to me like a cracked head and/or a blown head gasket. Is the car low on water in the radiator and if you live in an area that is cold do you have enough antifreeze in the car.

2001 grand prix gt freaking out!


Hello and yes this is a major noise. I would check your oil now right before you ever start the oil again. This noise may have been your engine locking up from really low oil levels and excessive heat from a lot of driving. If this is fine contact me again and we will address more problems if their is more. Thank You.

My 2003 g35 infiniti won't start oil low


I really doubt if your motor siezed up while sitting there. But your battery could have gone dead, or your stater may have locked up, or a battery cable is loose or dirty.

Burning oil, but dont know why


Nowdays 1 Qt. in 3000 miles, really isn't that bad, even some new vehicles claim that's normal. I know with my current vehicles, both at approx. 150,000-160,000 miles, they won't use any for first while after an oil change, but then after mileage starts adding up again, they start to use a little, approx.I Qt, every 1000 miles or so, until it's changed again. I've switched to the high mileage oil, just for piece of mind, as they say it revives seals, and has added protection for the higher mileage engines.This time around I'm thinking of adding "Lucas" & see how it works, as I've heard some pretty good reports on it, just to see if it will prolong that oil breakdown, at mid change.
