SOURCE: oil

I do not know in ML, but if you look on the right or left side of engine you should see a site window. When you put the oil in what you are looking for is the oil to be in the middle of the site glass.

Fill to the site glass. Anywhere from middle of the glass to just below the top of the glass. The engineers put the glass there for a reason. Typographic errors do come to light at times.

Top rating on the answer! Thanks. :)

Bad seal in the pump itself. It is like a weep hole in a water pump. It is letting you know it is time to be replaced.

Engine is making oil


An engine does not make oil, but it can spill the oil that should be inside. You could have an oil leak, which means that oil will be leaking from either the front or the rear oil seal. The front oil seal is just behind the crank pulley, the one that drives the fan / alternator belt. If oil is leaking from there, suspect the front seal.
If you have oil leaking from the bell housing, that the the bell shaped metal thingy between the engine and the gearbox. you can suspect the rear oil seal.
If you inspect the engine and see oil leaking from the oil pan under the engine, you have a leaking pan gasket. This can usually be solved by tightening the pan bolts, a whole lot of bolts underneath the engine.
Finally, and this is probably the worst, if you see oil around the breather pipe that goes from the valve cover on top of the engine to the gas intake system, you have leaking compression, that means either the valve stem seals are leaking or the compression rings are finished, and you will have to have the engine overhauled, or at the very least have the cylinder head overhauled.
If the rings are suspect, you will also have excessive smoke out of the exhaust when you drive, especially when you accelerate. Check the exhaust for signs of wet oil.

My 1985 nissan maxima keeps low oil pressure,I constantly have to fill it with up to qts. of oil,any solutions


Place a clean flattened cardboard under your car and see if it's leaking out. If it's not dripping oil, check your radiator for the presence of oil using a dye test kit available at NAPA. If there is a leak coming from under your car, try to determine from where it's dripping. Most common is an oil filter that hasn't been tightened properly or leaking oil sump bolt. A 1/4 turn on the oil filter should stop the leak, if its the sump... a new screw washer for the sump bolt will usually cure that. Check around the sump mounting bolts, if a fresh leak is evident, you will need a new sump gasket, don't try to tighten the existing bolts as it make leak worse! Tighten to torque specs. Otherwise, you are burning it up... exhaust smoke should be dark instead of light gray. White smoke indicates a blown head gasket and the oil is getting into the engine.

Why is liquing exactly


There are a few issues that may cause leakage from the oil pan. If it's leaking from the sump plug, that is the bolt you'd removed to change the oil, the seal could be old and/or cracked, or the bolt might be loose. Getting an oil change and asking for the sump plug to be replaced should be relatively inexpensive.
The other likely possibilities are the oil pan seal is cracked, the bolts holding on the oil pan somehow loosened, or the car was driven over or dropped onto some large, hard debris, and the oil pan itself got bent.
If it's not easy to determine where the oil is leaking from when looking under the car, it could also be from somewhere else in the engine, and dripping down onto the oil pan.
In any case, a reputable shop put the car on a lift to get a good look at the problem, and give you a repair estimate.

Ran over something in the street, cracked lower oil pan had it repaired that was 3 days ago...the engine light just came on I checked there is oil in the car however I do believe there is an oil leak


Because of the material used in the construction of the sump and the fact that the oil impregnates into the surface of the steel any welding repairs to the sump are going to be "iffy" at best as the material cracks around the weld area.. I imagine the sump was removed to carry out the weld in which case I would be looking at loose sump bolts or the gasket was over tightened and has squeezed out allowing it to leak. Check that the oil sender wire hasn't fallen off and is shorting out on the engine

Engine started leaking oil near the back of the engine and collects on deak


Hi, You need to clean the engine thoroughly with some Purple Power or Fantastic and a garden hose. Then run the engine for a short time and locate exactly where the oil is coming from on the engine. One place to pay close attention to is directly under the cylinder where the crankcase mates with the oil sump. Some engines have gaskets fail directly under the cylinder because A; there are no bolts securing the oil sump to the crankcase in that location and B; it is an area of very high heat. I am assuming this is a push mower and does not have overhead valves? If it does have OHV, keep an eye around the bottom of the valve cover. Lastly, the crankcase breather cover gasket or the rubber tube the goes from the breather to the air filter housing may have come off or it may be cracked. But first things first, you must get the engine clean to determine where the oil is coming from. After establishing the location of the leak, post back with the info and I will provide direction to make the repair.Kevin,

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IF THE IS ENGINE LEAK


I'm presuming an oil leak?

Check around the sump where it bolts to the bottom end. Visually inspect the sump for holes (altho you would be losing oil pretty severly if there is). Check around the oil filter, might not be sealed right.

One way to narrow the leak location is get a sheet of card and put it on the ground under the engine bay overnight. It should show you where the oil is dripping from or what its dripping off.

Also Accents have a habbit of dropping oil level very quickly when they are getting close to requiring an oil top up.

Oil leak at the bottom of the oil pan. Still leaking after i tightend the pan bolt. What should i check next, can this cause other problems?


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 the intake 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, the oil 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.
