Don't know about a diagram, I don't see where that will help, but you might want to check the oil filter, oil filter adapter, oil pressure sensor all located at the oil filter, if you cant find it , clean the under side of the engine at the car wash and add engine dye to the oil, there is a kit that has a black light and yellow glasses in the kit, the additive is seperate, the light will make the additive glow yellow, always look at the highest point because oil spreads so bad, tighten the oil pan bolts not to tight, you will push the gasket out and have a worse problem. check around the front engine seal (front of the crank)

You need to see where it's coming from,maybe a sensor is leaking or the oil pan.You can wipe up and check after a while to see where it's coming from to determine what needs to be done.

Bad oil leak in 2001 ot cruiser


A couple of leaks can be fairly large. An Oil Pan leak where you will see oil seeping down the sides of the pan and dripping directly below. The other is a Rear Main Bearing Seal leak and the oil will be coming from where the engine meets the transmission.

Oil leak on 2002 chevy silverado 6.0 around oil pan seems to be coming from the front and dripping down the oil filter


Hello....The first thing that you want to check..since you said the leak is in front is the area around the bottom of the crank shaft..If the oil is comming from there...This is where the main oil seal is for the crank shaft bearing...If no oil is comming from that area...you can breath a sigh of relief...There are a lot of stop leak products for everything from radiators to oil systems to transmissions...I'm not a big fan beacuse ...If it can stop a leak...it can stop the flow....The best cure for an oil pan leak is to drain the oil.....Drop the oil pan...replace the gasket...and if you do it right...you'll be good to go for a long time...PS.....don't forget to replace the oil....I hope this was helpful.....PEACE.....

I changed trans pan gasket and it leaking between the trans and 4x4 crank case or the oil pan


if you changed the trans oil pan and used a gasket it probably will leak ,most dodges use mopar atf-rtv sealer available at the dealer for the trans pan,,if it is leaking between the trans and tcase you will have to determine which unit is leaking fluid and replace the seal and gasket between them you can put oil dye in the tcase fluid and run it and use a dye light to see if the fluid leaking has dye in it and if not then it is the trans

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.

I was told there are two oil pans on Mazda Tribute 2001 (upper & lower) 4 cylinder manual. I have an oil leak do I replace both?


There are two gaskets, one is between the lower pan and the upper pan, and the second is between the upper pan and the engine. You only need to replace the gasket that leaks. If both are leaking, replace them both. To find out where the leaks are, raise the car, get underneath, and look closely all around the oil pans to see where the oil is coming from. Use a flashlight if necessary. You should be able to trace any leaking oil upward to its source.

The oil pan gaskets are not necessarily the only sources of oil leaks. Check to see if any oil is coming from behind the timing cover, and look for oil coming from the valve cover gasket.

Bad oil leak around oil pan, does somebody have an engine diagram for the Dodge 3.0 in this Grand Caravan?


This is what I found on my 1998 with a 3.0 motor Most likely you have a rusted pan with a hole on the passenger side of pan, clean the oil pan real good and inspect it real good and check for small leaks,
Also the transmission pan is also known to rust through on the left side top and bottom, Salt and brime plays heck on all pans and brake lines

How to change the oil pan on my 2000 Ford Contour 4cyl.......I was told at the oil change place that it was all rusted out and leaking and needs to be replaced....How big a job is this???? Can I do this,...


It shouldn't be that big of a deal. If the oil pan is the only part that has oil on it, it is most likely an oil pan gasket or rtv sealant that needs to be replaced. If you have actual holes in the pan then your problem is probably bigger. Depending on how bad the rust is, getting those fasenters out might present a problem so I would try turning a couple before draining all the oil. If the bolts turn then drain the oil from the plug as if you were doing an oil change. There are twelve of these bolts and there is a proper untightening and tightening sequence which is difficult to explain without a diagram but try and work in a spiral pattern from the center. Once it is off make sure you scrape all rtv off and any oil residue otherwise it will leak again. Re-apply rtv or whatever ford recommends and when it is ready, put it back trying to tighten the bolts from the center working your way out in a criss cross spiral pattern. Hope all goes well

Oil leak on 95 chrysler concorde. 3.5


first thing first... have you seen an actual oil spot/leak on the ground after the car has sat overnight. have you checked the seal around the oil filter.
If you have done those things and both are no... there is a chance it is burning the oil... what does the exhaust smoke look like ?
