That's dealers job to advise when they spot possible future failures - I'd have leak repaired as soon as possible because leaks "don't fix themselves" and usually gets worse and causes runability problems.

My ford focus is leaking oil think it might be gearbox oil,


Is the oil you see reasonably clean or is it black. The gearbox oil would be cleaner than the engine oil. Gearbox leaks would most likely come from one of the following:-
  1. Drive shafts
  2. Gear change lever inputs,
  3. Speedo cable
  4. Reverse light switch
  5. Drain plug
  6. Input shaft seal (inside the bell housing).
Pig a piece of paper under the car when you park it at night to give you an idea where the drip is located and inspect the area above that position

My 2000 Park Avenue Ultra knocks when you first start it up, but goes away after it warms up. It is also leaking antifreeze. Do you know what may be wrong?


Late model GM cars are plagued with antifreeze leaks around the Upper Air Plenum gasket and also the Lower Intake Manifold gasket. This is brought on by Dex-cool antifreeze deteriorating the gasket materials. If the Lower Intake gasket is leaking, it may have contaminated your loil with antifreeze. If there is antifreeze in the oil it should show up on the dipstick as a gummy sludge. GM has issued Technical Service Bulletins to their dealerships concerning this issue. Check with your local dealership to see if they will repair it at no charge. There currently is no recall, so they probably won't. In that case, take it to a good garage and have it repaired. Don't wait too long. If the oil is contaminated, it will damage your engine from lack of lubrication.

Leaky transfer case or gearbox. Oil covering front diff.


If the front differential is covered with oil, chances are that the leak is from the pinion seal on the diff itself or from an engine leak. check all the fluids and find what is low and clean off all the residue there so you can find the source. Since the t case is behind the diff, and the air flow is towards the rear (unless you drive backwards all day long) any leaks would tend to blow towards the back, not towards the front.Once you find the actual leak source, someone here can help advise you on how the repair can be made.

A small oil leak has been found in the gearbox recently. i'm about to go on a approx 4000km driving holiday. there is no change in the driving of the car, all normal,do you think it will it hold out until...


This depends on how much oil is leaking, if you can check this level and keep it full no matter how much you drive, it should be fine but if you get low on oil and keep driving you may blow or break something very expensive to replace. Make sure you keep your oil levels topped off, and if you can not service it take it to someone that can, good luck PS: people drive around every day with oil leaks they just make sure not to get low on oil because knowing how important oil is to keep full is important to not breaking down.

Black smoke from exhaust


i know for a fact that the oil is getting strait out in your exhaust system...

a common cause is a failiure of the pcv valve wich is located on the intake manifold.

to check her, just take it out of the manifold and shake it in your hand...
you should be able to hear a clicking sound out of it. if not it is done...
