Hi,

Let's start by telling you how to diagnose the problem.

Most oil leaks are easily located and repaired by visually finding the leak and replacng or repairing the necessary parts. On some occasions a fluid leak may be difficult to locate or repair. The following procedure may help in locating and repairing most leaks.

Finding the Leak

  • Identify the fluid, determine whether it is engine oil, automatic transmission fluid, power steering fluid, etc.
  • At what location or point is the fluid leaking from? After running the vehicle at normal operating temperature, park the vehicle over a large sheet of paper, After a few minutes, you should be be able to ascertain the approximate location of the leak by the drippings on the paper.
  • Visually check around the suspected component. Check around all gasket mating surfaces and hoses for leaks. If your car provides engine oil cooling, check the oil lines leading to the radiator. A mirror is useful for finding leaks in areas that are hard to reach. If the leak still cannot be found, it may be necessary to clean the suspected area with a degreaser, steam or spray solvent. Most car washes provide this service or make it possible for you to do it yourself. Clean the area well, then dry the area. Operate the vehicle for several miles at normal operating temperatures and varying speeds. After operating the vehicle , visually check the suspected component. If you still cannot locate the leak, try using the power method.

The Power Method
  • Clean the suspected area.
  • Apply an aerosol-type powder, e.g., face powder, to the suspected area.
  • Operate the car under normal operating conditions.
  • Visually inspect the suspected component. You should be able to trace the leak path over the white powder surface to the source.

Good luck and all the best

Ben

1997. Why has it started sputtering?


The oil is a sign of a problem and the plug may be fouling. A compression test is a start. Generally a squirt of oil will increase compression readings in the bad cylinder during a compression test if an oil ring is at fault. If there is no change with the squirt of oil, it is a valve stem seal or a head gasket problem.

Sounds like fuel pump. There's a 'valve stem' looking nipple on the gas line going to your cylinders. Push in the stem in the middle. If the fuel pump works you will have pressure and the gas will squirt out. If it squirts just a little and quits, then you're not getting any gas pressure. It could also be your in-line fuel filter.

1996 vortec 5.7. how do I adjust rocker arms when the motor is cold?


these are adjusted the same way 5.7 litre motors have been adjusted since GM started making this size of motor. with every thing in place tighten rocker nuts down until about 1/16" threads is protruding above nut. once the car starts allow the engine pressure to build and oil is squirting around rockers. then with engine running tighten down rockers that are noisy until the noise has just gone. then back off nut until it starts to clatter then tighten 3/4 of a turn. repeat to all the other rockers and your done.

Car starts, while car is running, oil squirt below the header


Look in the oil filter area to see if the oil sender is leaking. You will have to jack the car up with the jackstand in place. Look for oil leak in the area of the oil filter. Oil senders leak all the time and have seen motors burn out because of them. Hope this helps leave comment

IT'S BEEN IN THE GARAGE FOR 9 YEARS, DISCONNECTED BATTERY,DRAINED OIL, LEFT LITTLE TO NO GAS IN IT. I THINK THE PLUGS HAVE TO BE CHANGED


Before you start it up you need to pull the spark plugs and squirt a few drops of motor oil or Marvel Mystery Oil into each cylinder. As long as the plugs are out you might as well replace them, especially if they've seen much use.
