You will need to replace the transmission to fix the oil leak.
Really not worth the repair tho.

Oil leak under 1997 Pontiac sunfire convertible engine needs work


Most likely you oil leak is coming from your main seal . They wear out and get hard and brittle you could also have valve gaskets leaking and the oil is running down the engine and onto the floor.

Leaky rear main seal


I bought a 2000 RL used, with some factory warranty remaining, and then bought an extended warranty. While hnder warranty, car began to smell up my garage from fumes from oil dripping onto hot exhaust. Not enough oil at that point to show up on garage floor. Complained to dealer about the odor but Acura Master Mechanic (said he) couldn't find source of odor (although I told him I suspected an oil leak because I had prior experience with oil leaks and resultant smells on another car). On the next service visit after the extended warranty expired, same master mechanic said my RL's rear main oil seal was leaking onto exhaust causing odor. And the dealer wanted north of $1000 to fix it. I declined. Leak has steadily gotten worse - now visible drops on garage floor. An independent repair shop quoted $650 plus the cost of replacing expensive, special Honda transmission fluid. Took my complaint all the way up the chain to the head of Honda in Japan, but got no assistance. No more Honda products for me.

Leaking on front driver carpet but no visual sign of leaking around door or windows. Carpet is drenched and so is cushion underneath carpet.


1. Have you been using your heater and is the smell sticky sweet? If so you're heater core might be leaking.

2. Have you been using you're A/C? If so you may have a clogged or disconnected condensation drain.

Oil leak onto garage floor either coming from oil pan gasket or oil filter not sure wich one


Clean the filter and pan with a spray cleaner, run engine for a few miutes.
recheck oil leak.
Probably is rear main seal leaking, very common trouble.
If not leaking much, keep drip pan under car to keep floor clean and drive on.
Most cars do leak after they age a little. The black line in the middle of the road is oil leaking from cars. Very common.

My Whirlpool washer is leaking oil out of the bottom and onto the floor. Model# LHA5500WI. How can I fix this problem? It has a 1/2 hp motor, 1725 rpm, 1440 rpm, rubber mounted.


The leak would be from the gear box. The seals on the gearbox are worn out.

Best to get technician to remove gearbox, and have it reconditioned.

Machine is usually very noisy ( like it was out of balance, but isnt) 90 percent time very noisy in the final expell of water, also some oil on the floor under center of machine ? this is a top load...


oil on the floor means your gear box is leaking
if it has been leaking. if it has been leaking for a while, it may have done major damage,and would be cheeper to replace the machine second hand than to fix.
if noise is happening while you are pumping , it may have a bra under wire or small coin in the water pump.
if it is sounding like it is out of balance it may have a support or spring broken or unhooked
as the tub is usually suspended by springs

Tub leaks water during cycle out bottom onto floor


We had the same problem. There was a pinhole leak in the hose that connects the tub to the pump. Bought a new hose for under $10 and fixed the problem ourselves.

Transmission noise


Washers normally don't have much grease in them at all....the transmission is full of oil....which on GE washers often gets dumped onto the floor.Remove power, tilt the washer back and check on/around/near the large center pulley under the tranny....often the belt and pulley throw the oil around inside the cabinet.
Some of the oils they use are a synthetic oil....acts a little diff than some other oils....sometimes if water gets into the tranny the oil can change foamy or black due to the moisture.
