SOURCE: 1993 VT 1100 C Shadow: Leaking oil on left side above kick stand...

Based off my experience today...which lasted several hours of researching this same issue on my 1993 Honda Shadow vt1100, it's most likely not oil but is rather fluid leaking out of the master cylinder that operates the clutch mechanism. I'm assuming you have a hydraulic clutch like mine. Directly above the kick stand is a metal plate that looks like it could be part of the engine but has an 8mm bolt holding it on at the bottom. Take that off and directly in front of you is your cylinder. You should inspect the lines and bleed the clutch lines to make sure that air isn't you issue. Beyond that you are where I am now.....did all that stuff but can't figure out my issue. Just thought I could catch you up at least that far and save you a little time.

SOURCE: 1985 honda goldwing 1200 oil

Most likely it is a valve cover gasket. There is a cam seal underneath the cam belt timing gear that is easy to replace (I have replaced two of those when the same leak appeared.The seal is part #28. http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/1985-honda-gl1200i-gold-wing-interstate/o/m2346#sch18022 Worst case scenario the crankshaft seal has begun to leak. It is easily replaced once you have taken off the covers, belts, and center belt sprockets. http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/1985-honda-gl1200i-gold-wing-interstate/o/m2346#sch16246 The seal is part #13 http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/1985-honda-gl1200i-gold-wing-interstate/o/m2346#sch17585

Leaky valve cover on my jdm subaru


The only thing you might need to buy beside the gasket is any rubber parts that have been damaged by the leaking oil.
Check your radiator hoses, heater hoses, and vacuum lines, because motor oil will "rot:" rubber.
You need only replace hoses that are "spongy"and are wet with oil.
Be blessed.

How do you retime a timing belt for a Chrysler Cirrus 1995 V6


Position the number one cylinder at TDC. Take the hot side terminal off. Remove the drivebelts. Loosen the large bolt in the center of the crankshaft pulley/damper. After removing the crankshaft pulley, reinstall the crankshaft bolt using an appropriate priate spacer (this will enable you to turn it later) Remove the upper-left timing belt cover. Remove the lower timing belt cover. Detach the power steering pump bracket from the engine. Remove the right (passenger side) engine mount and the mounting bracket from the engine. Make sure the engine is supported with a floor jack placed under the oil plan. Place a wood block on the jack head to prevent damaging the oil pan. Loosen the timing belt tensioner mounting bolts and then remove the tensioner. Carefully slip the timing belt off the sprockets.This is a good time to check the crank and camshafts for leaks. Make sure your marks are lined up before you put it back together. Best wishes.

  1. timing cover is leaking oil betwwen cover and block
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Remove the drive belt(s), fan and fan shroud. If equipped, remove the accessory drive belt pulley.
  4. Remove the vibration damper retaining bolt and washer. Remove the vibration damper using a suitable puller.
  5. Remove the accessory drive brackets attached to the timing cover.
  6. Remove the A/C compressor, if equipped, and alternator bracket from the cylinder head and move to one side.
  7. Remove the oil pan-to-timing case cover bolts and the cover-to-cylinder block bolts.
  8. Remove the timing case cover front seal and gasket from the engine.
  9. Cut off the oil pan side gasket end tabs and oil pan front seal tabs flush with the front face of the cylinder block. Remove the gasket tabs.
  10. Clean the timing case cover, oil pan and cylinder block gasket surfaces.
  11. Remove the crankshaft seal oil seal from the cover by prying it out with a suitable tool.

To install:

  1. Install a new seal in the timing cover using a suitable seal installation tool.
  2. Apply sealer to both sides of the replacement cover gasket and position the gasket on the cylinder block. Cut the end tabs off the replacement oil pan gasket corresponding to those cut off the original gasket. Attach the end tabs to the oil pan with sealer.

1989 tercel major oil leak passanger side. how do i change the oil pump gasket? do i need to change timing belt too? N where is the unit located? is it under the cover between the valve cover and oil pan?


The oil pump is located under the black timing cover , however your leak is likely the lower main seal under that cover as well , your oil pump will be on the upper right side , you should replace them both and the timing belt while your there considering the cost of the parts , it is good insurance you wont lose your belt while you still own your car and have to go back in again , it is not hard to do just be patient , also when you loosen off your timing belt tensioner '' to remove the belt ''dont forget to re tension it after you replace it

Leaking oil left side of motor


Since it's not clear whether you mean driver side or passenger side, I will address both.

On the driver side, the most common leak is from the distributor. This can be caused by the distributor shaft exterior o-ring, or it can be caused by the distributor shaft interior bearing seal. To determine which it is, remove the distributor. First detach the spark plug wires, then undo the bolt that holds the distributor to the head, then pull the distributor out of the head. You will see the o-ring on the exterior of the distributor shaft. This is a $0.50 part, so just replace it with a new one as long as you have the distributor out. The bearing seal is on the inside of the distributor. To inspect it, undo the three bolts holding the cap to the distributor body. Pop the rotor off the shaft, the unclip the inside plastic cover. If you see any oil inside the distributor or the distributor cap, this means the seal is leaking and must be replaced. You can get a seal and bearing replacement kit from kbox.ca. Or, you can just buy a new distributor. Note: To get the distributor back in place you must align the shaft correctly with the notch in the camshaft. There is a right way and a wrong way. If the shaft seems to be aligned but does not go in, pull it out and rotate it 180 degrees, then put it back in.

The other possibility on the driver side of the engine is the main seal between the engine and transmission. If this is the case, you would have to either drop the transmission or pull the engine to replace it.

What if the oil is leaking on the passenger side? If it's coming from behind the timing belt cover, there is a camshaft seal and a crankshaft seal, both of which can leak oil. To get to them, you will have to remove all accessory belts and the alternator, remove the exterior crankshaft pulley, remove the engine mount (support the engine) and the timing belt covers, remove the timing belt, then the crankshaft pulley and/or camshaft pulley, whichever is necessary to replace the leaking seal(s).

Where else could oil be leaking from? If it's coming out from near the top of the engine, that's the valve cover gasket. Remove the valve cover and replace the gasket. While you're at it, replace the spark plug tube seals.

If it's coming out from near the bottom of the engine, it could be the oil pan gasket. Remove the oil pan and replace the gasket.

One more possibility for oil leakage: The head gasket. But in this case you would have noticed other symptoms besides just an oil leak.

Good luck! Let us know how it turns out.

Water/coolent leaking from behind the timing cover


Water pump is on the left side of the timing belt in the cover and spins on an O-ring to adjust the belt. Their is a coolant pipe to the the thermostat housing behind the timing covers backing plate also. Be sure to replace the timing belt with the tensioner/ oil seals along with the water pump. Remove the timing covers back plate and you will find two bolt to the pipe as mentioned. It has a large o-ring behind it. Have fun with this one. From: Ronnie Wrench
