My Ford bantam 2003 model was done an engine overhaul recently its now driving a bit better than before on the power factor. The problem is that it is having some awkward raves & oil drips underneath


that is indicators or a badly installed rear main seal
the oil is coming out past that seal
as the system requires a complete sealed sump to run properly that would also account for poor performance
check that the PCV valve has been installed correctly and not blocked as that will cause pressure in the sump which will also cause oil leaks at the rear main seal

Everytime i go over a speed bump my car makes a funny noise.


Struts on the front suspension and rear shocks need to be check.

Look of oil mark / drip at the side of each strut and shock.

Do the bounce test.

Press do not move corner of the car and release.

It should bounce back up and lever down (in one singe up then down movement)

=====

Struts and shock last between 60,000 to 75,000 miles depending on the road condition.

Oil leak in driver side rear wheel well for 2005 crown vic. drips down over top of tire and puddles under it.


Hi Don:
Have you checked to see if it's brake fluid?
Is it possible that the slave cylinder is leaking and the fluid is coming ot from the brakes? I can't think of any oil source in that area.

Kx250 rear shock is out of oil how do i add oil to it


If the bike is real bouncy with no dampining you need to have shock rebuilt you cant just add oil to fix.Most rear mono shocks have a little bottle of nitrogen gas on side of shock.When shock seals go bad the oil and gas leaks out. Most times it is cheaper to find shop to rebuild shock then buying new one.Mono shocks can run anywhere from 250.00 to 500.00$.you can get rebuilt for about 100.00 to 150.00$ depending on parts needed.

H2 2005 oil leak on drivers side shock area.


im not that familiar with hummers but it sounds like youve found the end of the transmission vent hose or possibly the front differential vent hose and they will have seepage of oil sometimes. however if its a constant oil drippage, then there could be a buildup of pressure inside tranny or rearend. if u follow the hose down to its beginning youll know if its the trans. or differential(rearend). it might be normal to see this fluid,or it could be too much fluid inside trany/rear.

It could be the rear main seal if You see oil dripping out the back of motor, but check the spark plugs, if 2 are all black and wet w/ oil, the valve seals could be leaking onto tyhe plugs and fouling them out. Good Luck!
