Leaking Oil from the front

Hello, we bought this heater 1.5yrs ago, only been used 3 times at most . we found that its leaking oil from the lower front . it was leaking quite alot too... it has passed warranty period ... i guess this is a cheap model , but i thought Delonghi brand is quite reliable. I open up the front cover, and found out the leaks was from the lower front module , which charges the oil i believe ... seems like the rubber seals are melted!

    Same problem, different model. Model 6708 EK is leaking from one of the middle furnace stacks. Mine is also OOW. I haven't contacted Delonghi yet, and I expect they aren't going to do anything about it. Faulty product with cheap manufacturing. I am very disappointed.

DONT BUY A NEW ONE THEY ARE EXPENSIVE ... THEY PUT OUT VERY LITTLE ACTUAL BTU'S OF HEAT ...IT WOULD BE DANGEROUS TO TRY AND BRAZE ANY LEAK POINTS AND THE OIL IS NOT CAR OIL AND NEEDS TO BE FILLED TO FACTORY SPECIFIED LEVELS. (THESE ARE NOT MEANT TO BE RE-FILLED OR DOES THE OIL USUALLY DIASAPATE). OIL HEATERS OF THIS TYPE USE PLENTY OF ELECTRICITY. I SUGGEST A "HIGH QUALITY, THICK CASED, WITH TILT SAFTY, ELECTRIC SPACE HETER WITH A FAN. THEY HEAT PROBLEM AREAS SAFE AND EFFECTIVELY.

Hello,my 2000 odyssey leaks oil.guy said its front oil seal but im gonna need time belt,water pump,vtec valve and oil pan gasket.Do i really need all that just to change front seal? $400 for labor?


A leaking front seal will allow oil to get into the area where the timing belt is located. This will cause oil to get on the belt and can cause damage. Since the timing cover must be removed to access the front seal, it is recommended to replace the belt while you are in there. Also, the water pump is driven off the timing belt. Replacement of the water pump is always recommended when replacing the timing belt for two reasons. First, it is easily replaced at this time and it is good preventive maintenance. Secondly, the water pump bearing is under tension from the timing belt and develops a wear pattern. Replacement of the belt without replacing the pump will cause the new belt to wear the bearing in a different pattern, often causing leaking in a very short time after the replacement. This would then result in having to repeat all the labor again to replace the pump. It is easy to see that for $400.00 labor, you don't want to do that again in only 2-3 months. as far as the VTEC valve is concerned, I don't see a relationship to the oil leak. It could just be something else the mechanic found during the inspection. I can find nothing in the remove/replace procedures that requires replacement of the oil pan gasket. Again, maybe something additional that is needed from visual inspection, but not needed for the front seal.

Oil leaking from my 1994 Vanden Plas where engine attaches to exhaust


I can make a couple of suggestions here. First for oil to be leaking there must be a leak from a bad gasket...either from the head, (hope not) or head cover gasket....easy fix. It may be as easy as tightening down the covers. I would change the head cover gasket and make sure it is tightly screwed down.
Second the correct oil is 20w50 and preferably not a synthetic.
You will see an improvement in the oil pressure if you are not using 20w50.

When i start my 2005 buick rainer the oil light stays on longer then usual. And yesterday after a 300 mile trip i noticed a skweeky sound under hood and opened and noticed that it was leaking oil somewhere...


Hello: Check the oil pressure sending unit for leaking. That could be the reason for the delay in the light going out and also the leakage. If oil has gotten on the serpentine belt replace it also. The sending unit will be near the oil filter assembly on the lower front of the engine.

Why is my 1992 cut;*** leaking oil already replaced head gasket could it be leaking from the block?


Hello Tina,
The most common ENGINE oil leaks come from a valve cover gasket, a front or rear main engine seal, a timing cover gasket/or seal, oil pan gasket/oil filter/housing/drain plug, or a faulty sensor. If you can't see where it's leaking from the topside, have it hoisted for further inspection.
Good Luck, i hope this helps & thanks for using FixYa.

Just bought last week have an oil leak in driveway the oil is light brown in color what could it be..


oil cooler lines, transmission pan, power steering leaking or axle seals. All are pretty common.

IF you open up the access cover for the oil filter you will see the cooler lines. If they are wet with oil you found the first leak.

The trans pan will be wet if the gasket is leaking

the front axle seal will be wet right where the axles go in the front end.

The power steering pump, lines, gear box will be wet if they are leaking.

Where are you seeing the oil leaking from? Remember that gravity will cause the oil to drop down. The wind will also cause the oil to blow back while you drive. Look for the forward most and top most areas that are covered with oil. Common leak areas are the front oil seal (oil will look like it's coming from the bell-housing. Another common leak is the shifter plate gasket, just below the shift lever. Oil will be found draining from this area. I have also seen shoddy mechanics use the wrong bolts to hold the rear housing onto the main housing of the transmission. If the bolts used are to short, oil will leak between the main housing and the tail-shaft housing. Charlie

KitchenAid 250 Watts; Classic: Leaking Oil


Found this,may be helpful.
Why do I see oil leaking from the beater shaft of my stand mixer?
Some KitchenAid® stand mixers that are not used very often or have been tipped may experience slight oil leakage from the shaft or hub attachment. To avoid the oil leakage, KitchenAid suggests that you run the mixer weekly for short periods of time. Generally, the mixer may lose approximately X cup of oil before repair is necessary. The oil used is FDA approved and is not harmful to consume, should any get into the food that you are preparing.
