2009 cx-7 has oil leak but oil is full??drives fine no smell has 113,000 mile on it and never a problem

Have the engine cleaned top and bottom with a pressure washer and once that is done drive the car about 10 miles return to the shop and check for the oil leak source, common placed for leaks are valve covers, rear main seals and the oil pressure sensor. It is best that you have access to a car lift.

Replaced rear main seals and oil pressure sending on a 2000 z71

Check the oil filter housing and the cooler lines at the housing. The oil filter housing gaskets are good for no more than 15k to 30k miles if your lucky. The lines at the housing are easy to strip out when you reinstall them so take your time if you do it yourself an once you are finished and ready to start the truck, let it run for about 15 minutes and constantly check the area for leaks prior to road testing the vehicle.

Hello I have a 1997 Chevy Astro van with a 4L60e transmission, yesterday I lost my transmission and found fluid leaking like a sieve from the rear seal on the transmission (where the drive shaft connects)...

Ontop of the transmission there is a little tube. Its only about 2 inches long and the size of a drinking straw. Use a coat hanger or something simelar and clean it out. This is a pressure vent. They are known for plugging up with dirt and other stuff picked up from the road. Get it clean and replace the seal you should be fine.

Coolant leaking from 2000 Chevy Venture minivan. Doesn't appear to be coming from water pump. How do I diagnose the problem.

fill your radiator (with water if the weather isnt cold so you save money) and start your car. Pay attention to where the fluid drips out at this will help you pinpoint the location of the leak.

Rear seal links and I only have 88,000 miles. why

Only have 88K??! That is a good amount of miles to have on a car. I know it is a Toyota but things do start to go and things start to leak after a while on all cars. Your car is 10 years old- Its not new anymore. Things will start to leak over time and this is not unheard of. it is pretty much normal. Fix the leak and do regular matinance and you will get another 10 years and anothe 88k miles out of it.
