The best way to locate the oil leak, if you can't see where it is coming from is to park the car overnight , and put a large piece of cardboard under the engine, so where the oil leak is, it will drop onto the cardboard, then the next day, look under the car, and see where the oil is on the cardborad, the leak should be in the area of where it is on the cardboard. also, the leaks could be anything from the oil pan gasket, oil sending unit, valve covers, intake manifold gasket. or the rear main seal. hope that this information was very helpful to you.

I use a uv dye added to the oil. It will show you exactly where the oil is coming out of the engine. You can buy a kit that contains a uv flashlight and special glasses so you don't hurt eyes and can see the dye glowing. Next purchase the correct dye. All of this is not that expensive and more precise than a piece of cardboard. Simply add the dye to the engine and run vehicle let set overnight look in the morning with the light and the leak will glow.

My 1996 Toyota Camry is leaking oil in little spots on the ground when its parked, where could it be leaking from and how can i fix it?


You cannot repair the leak until you determine where it is leaking. More than likely it is leaking from the oil filter, oil pressure sending unit, or valve cover gasket. Check around the oil filter for a leaks and if you see oil on the filter then replace it. Check the oil pressure sending unit and if it is leaking replace it. Wipe all the oil off the bottom of the engine and any other place you see oil. Now place newspapers on the floor under the car and then start the engine and let it run for about 10 minutes and then shut down. Wait overnight and you can see where the leak is coming from.

2000 Monte Carlo has a slow oil leak started noticing oil on the garage floor. I also noticed that if I park the car on a small incline such as my drive way the leak goes away at least there's no oil on...


as a mechanic I will say it can be multi things that can cause a leak. but when you say it goes away on slight incline that normaly means it is toward the front of the engine. I must say just because their is low miles does not mean a seal will not go out. I have replaced seals on cars with only 10,000. It is normaly caused from vibration or misplacment of seal. If you look under the car look for a wet spot on the engine or its components then email me back and I may be able to help you narrow it down. I would not freak out to bad though monte carlos are easy to work on and should not cost much to fix it.

Clutch not engaging on 2000 cougar


The master cylinder or the slave cylinder have failed. I would check for a clear oil looking leak coming from either the firewall/above the clutch pedal or under the transmission. Either way you would need to replace the master or slave cylinder. Hope this helps!

2000 Mazda Protege SE Oil Leak . Have not had a oil change recently. I parked the car at office. After an hour I saw lots of oil appearing centre of engine


Check for broken gaskets on the bottom and the top of the engine. Make sure your oil filter is not broken, make sure the drain plug is in and secure, also make sure your oil pump is working correctly and not leaking oil. Its all about looking for the leak, just inspect the engine REALLY well.

If you are referring to the Check Engine light then this indicates there is a problem with the emissions system. Have the ECU scanned with an OBD2 scan tool. The fault code that has been set by the ECU will tell you where to look for the problem. If the engine is running fine there is no hurry, but do have this looked into. If you are referring to the oil pressure light stop driving the car until you get this repaired as it may be serious.

Cougar 2000 leaks transmition fluid through dipstick.


Check the level and make sure it wasn't overfilled. (running, hot and in park) If the level is ok, look for the vent. It should be on top of the trans, maybe by the linkage. It should be covered by either a metal or rubber cap. That may be clogged.
