Oil leak on driveway coming from front of engine

Dear Sir,
Here is the oil leaking Problem Identifying Technique

Engine oil leaks from the valve cover gasket are common.

  • The intake manifold plenum gasket may leak and cause increased oil consumption/burning and a spark knock during acceleration; the gasket should be replaced.
  • External oil leaks from valve cover gaskets, intake gaskets (front or rear), and the rear crankshaft (rear main) seal area are common. The rear main seal is an unlikely source. Normally, the bearing cap mating surfaces (as well as the sealing surface between the oil pan and bearing cap) are the source for the leaks.
  • Engine oil leaks at the distributor can be misdiagnosed as leaks from theintake manifold seal, oil pan gasket, or rear crankshaft (rear main) seal. A revised distributor is available if oil is found inside the distributor.
  • If the oil filter casing shows signs of distortion from excessive oil pressure, theoil pump should be replaced.
  • Often misdiagnosed as a leaking oil filter gasket, the oil filter adapter can seep from between the adapter and engine block.
  • Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms may vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

    Valve covers leaking

    Is the valve cover leakage coming from a crack on cover or valve gasket (between the cover and engine)?
    If it is coming between the valve cover and engine, then you will need a new gasket. They range between 20-50 bucks depending on vehicle.
    If you can not afford one, for a quick fix, but needs to be corrected as soon as can afford. Your able to make your own quick fix gasket using high heat gasket silicone. It would have to cool off completely before adding silicone making your own bead around the contour of bottom of valve cover then sit for a few hours before starting it.
    If you can afford a new gasket; remove the old one. It might take a scraper.
    Take some sand paper and clean the where the gasket was really good. Wipe clean then add some high heat gasket silicone. then place the gasket on the silicone. Add a bead of high heat gasket silicone to the engine where the valve cover would go, that helps keep it in place when screwing the screws back on.
    If you leakage is coming from a cracked valve cover, i would advise replacing it. I am sure you could find a used cheap one at a local junk yard.

    Good luck and hope this helped.

    Hi. What parts are needed to replace engine oil leak? Valve cover, front timing cover gasket?

    An oil leak can come from from several different places.

    It could be from a valve cover, oil filter, oil pan, dip stick, oil drain line, oil pump, and a few other places.

    I'd try to see where the leak is coming from first. Clean your engine bay and grab a bunch of lights.

    Light up the engine bay and see where the leak is coming from. Once you find the leak, you'll know what to replace.

    Replacing everything is just spending needless money. I'd also suggest checking to make sure you're not over filled.

    I would guess one of the valves are sticking or the lifters, but to me it sounds like the oil pump is either clogged or not working. Which would explain the engine light and the tapping sound. I hope this helps Tim

    You have a bad valve cover gasket. If I remember correctly the spark plug wires go thru the valve cover? If that is true a loose valve cover will leak motor oil on the plug wires possibly causing the check engine/maint light. I would start with the valve cover and a tune up. That may solve all your issues.
