Excessive Oil leak on 1985 Chrysler Laser 2.2L (non-turbo). My 17 year old son purchased the car with little history. Noticed a small oil leak on driveway. Replaced the valve cover gasket and leak...

A plugged pcv system will cause excessive oil leaks. But it sounds like you have a massive leak. If the passenger side is leaking behind the timing cover there may be up to four seals that may leak.single cam motor will have one cam seal dual will have two cam seals. Crank seal and possible oil pump seal. Would recommend pressure washing motor, go to local parts store and get some engine dye. Then support car and let engine get warm. And try to pinpoint leak.

You have to turn shifter up or down 1-2 teeth, or you have a problem at link betwen right and left connet. rod, you can see correct position if you take of round plug, it is behind and down from outer shifter.

Oil leak front engine timing chan

1995 Tracker would have a timing BELT. Normal oil leak points (in order) on a Suzuki G16 engine are the distributor base (rear of motor), valve cover (top of motor), front main seal (behind lower timing belt cog) cam seal (behind the upper timing belt cog) and rear main seal. (behind the flywheel). I'd suspect the front main seal or cam seal. I use foot power to help find oil leaks.

2009 KTM 65 SX.. Wheres the drain bolt for oil change? It's not underneath and if it's the bolt behind shifter I can't get to it with a wrench and how much oil does this bike take what kind is...

Thank you for contacting FixYa with your inquiry.
Check out page 11 of the KTM owners manual from this link.
The plug may be hiding behind the brake lever. Also check page 30 of manual on same like for info on the site glass and a good illustration of the Drain Plug.
Oil Recommendation: Remove the filler plug 4 and add 0.30 l gear oil 20W30 (e.g. Motorex Top Speed 4T 15W50). Mount the filler plug and check the engine for leaks.
Hope this helps. Please advise if we can be of more service.

Oil is leaking from the shifter shaft on my 2005 1200R. Is there a seal or bushing that needs to be replaced?

There is a seal right behind the shifter. You can replace this seal without having to pull anything more than the shift lever off the shaft. Loosen and remove the bolt. Mark the case or something so that you can remember where to put the shifter back on and remove the shifter from the shaft. Using a screwdriver slip it between the seal and the shaft and work the seal out of the cover. Try not to scar up the shaft or the case. Once you have it out, slip the new seal over the shaft with it facing in the propter direction and use a deep well socket or something to drive the new seal into the cover. Replace the shifter and put the bolt back in. This should stop your leak.

Good Luck

Hello, i own a 1983 yamaha xs650 heritage special,...i would like to know if i could use a synthitic oil in her (dura lube), or (slick 50) along with its requierd grade, you see she has a minor oil leak,...

Do not use synthetic lubricants in your bike. Some of them can mess up the clutch. Some will swell the cork on the friction plates causing the clutch to grab and not disengage the engine. Some others will shrink the cork and cause the clutch to not engage at all. If there is oil in the crankcase, don't worry about any wear on the shifter. In 40 years I have yet to see a worn shift drum. Plenty of bent shift forks but never a worn shift drum. Try tightening the case screws to stop the oil leak. Be sure the oil level is not too high. A high oil level can cause a bit of oil to leak from the crankcase vent tube. That may be where your leak is coming from. Just use 10w40 motor oil with no "special" additives. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Coolent leaking

i doubt very much wether the block is cracked it is more likely to either be a heater hose may be leaking or a welsh plugs ( little round dish shaped plug ) in the side of the block i would first check all the heater hoses and the look on the side of the motor for a possible welsh plug leak i'd say its hoses tho

Water leak/mixing with oil

change the seal behind the water pump impeller
the shifter shaft seal will stop leaking
if it continues to mix water and oil you will have to change the head gasket
