When you don't run a motor for a while, the seals tend to dry rot. And then when you finally crank it up, the seal gets hot and expands, causing it to deterierate. Now the oil is passing right through that bad seal, causing a leak. Hope this helps. Please rate. James Booth :)

My 79 ford courier is leaking oil badly when it hasnt been driving and parked for days


Here is what you must do, pressure wash the engine and the transmission top and especially bottom of all grease and oil residue then install a bottle of special die that glows under a black light, drive the truck for a 10 or so miles and then put it on a car lift and check for the source of the leak with a black light. On this old of an engine the leak are likely all over the place.

Buick rendevous 2002, 23,000 original miles. sat for about 5 years outside. drove fine first day. 2nd day i drove 10 feet and all oil poured out. it was coming out oil sensor. we replaced oil sensor...


Check the opening around the oil filter outlet and make sure that there is no gasket still on the housing. Fram filters are famous for its gasket coming off and sticking to the surface of the inlet. When you tighten the new filter it crimps the new gasket and leaks all the oil out. I have had this happen to me twice. No more Fram filters for me. Buy PUROLATER. Hope this helps

Check and make sure that the old filter gasket is not still on the housing. Fram filters are famous for coming off and sticking to the surface of the inlet. When you tighten the new filter it crimps the new gasket and leaks all the oil. I have had this problem twice so no more Fram filters for me. Buy PUROLATER they seem to be the best and they don't cost much more. Hope this helps

Slow leak


The water pump should have a vent or "weep" hole. If the coolant is leaking from the hole, the water pump is defective. Hope this helped and best wishes.

I have a 1987 mercruiser alpha one out drive the boat sat for 5or 6 years engine turns over but no spark also had water in the cylinders drained the oil filled the cylinders with mystery oil let it sit for...


Alpha One is the out drive, what engine do you have? Remove the distributor cap and verify if your ignition is electronic or contact points. Either way, I recommend going with a Pertronix electronic ignition. This module is a simple drop in installation and will eliminate a major portion of your troubleshooting. Pertronix also has a high output coil to accompany their ignition, I recommend you install both as a set.
FYI, water in the cylinders is not good. Especially if it sat for 5-6 years rusting the rings and cylinder walls. Was this boat running when it was parked and do you know the history?

Honda mechanics state that my 1992 Acura Legend Coupe is leaking oil and coolant from under the front timing cover and I should bring it to an Acura dealer. What is the most likely problem?


your water pump is leaking and most likely you had a small oil leak under there also and now the coolant is washing it out, don't go too long with these leaks because your timing belt is under there and is getting soaked with oil and and coolant this will break or slip off causing major engine damage to result (i.e bent valves) good luck and please rate -jeff
