This sounds like the base gasket has gone bad (installl improperly) or cylinder or crankcase may be cracked

1993 honda shadow 1100 leaking engine oil from slave cylinder


Small O-ring, if that is engine oil, if it is brake fluid oil, you have bad slave cyl. gasket.
The O-ring is difficult to change, the clutch shaft is going through it from slave cyl. to clutch. You can try change it from left side, but I think easier from right, but you have to take off right engine cover and complete clutch, then slave cyl., pushing it out from left to right site thru a rod hole.

Oil leak above the oil filter no one can point the like


Oil leaks can be a pain to locate so I will give you a few tricks I've picked up along the way for locating oil leaks. Start by cleaning/degreasing the area. You want to remove as much of the old residue as possible. Then you can do several things from here.

1. Purchase and oil dye additive (this additive makes the oil glow when a black light i shined on it) and run the engine for a little while then re-inspect with black light to find locations where dye is concentrated.

2. After cleaning, spray the are that you suspect the leak is coming from with a spray on type foot powder(powder sprays on white providing an excellent contrast to trace leak). Run the engine and follow the oil trail to source of leak

I have oil leaking out of the exhaust manifold stud on my 2003 3.0 Saturn Vue. As crazy as this sounds I cleaned the whole area fully and when the motors starts you can see oil and bubbles coming around...


Apperently one of your gaskets has gone bad. Do you hear any exhaust noises, like ticking? I suspect the intake manifold gasket is leaking and the oil is running down to the stud.

Where you're describing sounds like it's leaking from the oil pan. If the vehicle has high mileage, you will probably want to look into replacing the oil pan gasket. If this doesn't sound right, it could be something to do with the oil pump. There isn't a lot of electrical components in that area of the engine. The oil pump or oil sensing unit would be my guess.

I would look at possibly rebuilding the carb or at least a good cleaning.  It sounds like there may be some gunk in the jets. As for the missing component it might be the flasher as that sounds like the location to the right of the battery on a mounting tab. I do have the manual I'll have to dig it out.,,
