    Had the same problem after an oil change. My mechanic found the antifreeze leak coming from a broken platic housing and gasket. He replaced the parts but there was still a minor leak. He is looking into a possible crack in the block.

How to control gear oil leakage in Renault Scenic 2.0. It is a 1998 model.


Where is the oil leaking from?
If from the ends of the drive shaft then its just a seal that needs to be replaced and if the drip is heavy i suggest changing it asap.

Oil leak onto garage floor either coming from oil pan gasket or oil filter not sure wich one


Clean the filter and pan with a spray cleaner, run engine for a few miutes.
recheck oil leak.
Probably is rear main seal leaking, very common trouble.
If not leaking much, keep drip pan under car to keep floor clean and drive on.
Most cars do leak after they age a little. The black line in the middle of the road is oil leaking from cars. Very common.

2002 KIA Sedona, oil spilled all over garage. I took it to Firestone to change oil. They said a "cam cap" was pushed up causing it to leak. They showed me the part-it was a small plastic or rubber cap(like...


hi something not right for a start the cam caps sit at the end of the head on the right hand side of the head and are always made of a metal due the the heat from the engine so you could never have a plastic cam cap due to heat it would just melt ? i advise you to take it to another garage for a second look

I was driving this morning, no problems yesterday but did get my oil changed and a new air filter at jiffy lube yesterday. AS I was driving the car started to over heat. White smoke was coming from the...


Take it back to them. Most likely they spilled washer fluid or oil on a part that gets hot. Then when you drove the spill evaporated. They may have checked your antifreeze and improperly tightened the Radiator cap causing a leak.

Observe the temperature gauge for overheating. Some Lube places do more service than oil changes. You need to pressure test the Radiator for leaks. They could have simply overfilled the fluid.

My van is leaking antifreeze for the botton of the car isee it dripping off the transmission pan it is over heating and i loosing a lot of antifreeze


you may have blown a manifold gasket. check oil and see if it is milky looking. Does oil pressure light come on? If so the gasket is blown. I had a leak once and it was ths gasket, but none was leaking into oil, just out onto the engine near the intake manifold. You may also have a corroded freeze plug. If you live up north and get a lot of snow and road salt, this could really be the issue. They are not easy to change on front wheel drive engines. Sorry. Have a great 4th of July.

Heater blowing cold air


If there is a internal antifreeze leak, there will be antifreeze mixed in your oil. Check your oil. If there is antifreeze in there, you probably have a bad head or base gasket. Worst case scenario is your block is cracked somewhere. Check your heater core and the lines as well. If the heater core is bad it will be leaking.
Check the thermostat housing for a leak. Sometimes
the antifreeze will leak from there, and burn on top of the exhaust instead of dripping onto the ground. Good luck

I have a 99 Beetle 2.0 every time I have the oil changed it leaks oil about a quarter size every day. What could this be


You say that every time you have the oil changed it leaks, but you don't say for how long. I am going to approch this from two diffrent angles, the first being that the leak only lasts for a day or two after the change, in this case I would say that what you are seeing is what got spilled, most likely from the filter being removed, or something else during the servicing. On the other hand if this drip continues untill the next oil change, I would recomend that the drain plug gasket is also changed at next oil change.

92 Toyota Camry, antifreeze leaking no leak found


have you had the undercarriage inspected for white stains from coolant, rust stains if your system is corroded? How many miles? has the water pump ever been replaced, that would be my guess, water pumps leak while the eng is running and the hot engine evaporates the coolant, so in many cases none on the ground. Also have the system pressure tested by a shop and put on a rack to check for signs of leaking under the car.

Under the hood smokes


the smoke may be just residual oil burning off.. some vehicles it is almost impossible to clean up all excess oil that spills on the vehicle when changeing the oil.. try driveing it . it should burn off in a day or so.. also check it and make sure its not leaking... if u feel that its not just a leak or excess oil.. take it back to the place u changed the oil and have them recheck it as a precaution.
