You need to replace the head gasket. It's not a difficult job but will require a torque wrench and you'll need to find the torque settings (foot pounds) for the head bolts. You can get these from a small engine repair manual at a local library or your nearest repair facility may give you the settings.

I'm leaking oil and finally all of it leaked out and where is it leaking from


Obviously a very big leak.

It isn't a good plan to allow oil to leak out until there is none left. Engines are costly, far more costly than oil and you are risking your engine by not checking the oil level and topping up as often as necessary.

The general area of such a large leak should be fairly obvious and in many cases the exact source of a major leak will be obvious.

Unusual for a bad oil leak to suddenly start unless something else has gone wrong, such as a burst oil filter or a blocked crankcase breather.

Oil leak


Not sure where your oil pressure sender is on that engine, but usually they are close to the filter. Or perhaps leaning on the top of the engine, like the fill cap, cracked something. Another possibility is a bad gasket on the new oil filter or overfill by 1 quart.

Oil leak above the oil filter no one can point the like


Oil leaks can be a pain to locate so I will give you a few tricks I've picked up along the way for locating oil leaks. Start by cleaning/degreasing the area. You want to remove as much of the old residue as possible. Then you can do several things from here.

1. Purchase and oil dye additive (this additive makes the oil glow when a black light i shined on it) and run the engine for a little while then re-inspect with black light to find locations where dye is concentrated.

2. After cleaning, spray the are that you suspect the leak is coming from with a spray on type foot powder(powder sprays on white providing an excellent contrast to trace leak). Run the engine and follow the oil trail to source of leak

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the oil pan.
  3. Remove the oil pump inlet tube and screen assembly.
  4. Unfasten the oil pump attaching bolts, then remove the oil pump gasket and the intermediate shaft.
To install:
  1. Prime the oil pump by filling the inlet and outlet ports with engine oil and rotating the shaft of pump to distribute it.
  2. Position the intermediate driveshaft into the distributor socket.
  3. Place a new gasket on the pump body and insert the intermediate driveshaft into the pump body.
  4. Install the pump and intermediate shaft as an assembly.


WARNING Do not force the pump if it does not seat readily. The driveshaft may be misaligned with the distributor shaft. To align, rotate the intermediate driveshaft into a new position.
  1. Install and tighten the oil pump attaching screws to:

    2.3L Engine: 12-15 ft. lbs. (16-20 Nm) 5.0L Engine: 22-32 ft. lbs. (30-43 Nm)
  2. Install the oil pan.

  7. Clean all gasket mounting surfaces.
  8. Inspect the mounting pocket for wear. If excessive wear is present, complete timing cover assembly replacement is necessary.
  9. Inspect the cover/filter mounting gasket-to-timing cover surface for flatness. Place a straightedge across the flat and check the clearance with a feeler gauge. If the measured clearance exceeds 0.004 in. (0.10mm), replace the cover/filter mount. Replace the pump gears if wear is excessive.
To install:
  1. Lightly pack the gear pocket with petroleum jelly or coat all gear surfaces with Oil Conditioner D9AZ-19579-CA or equivalent, then install the the pump gears in the cover pocket. Make sure the petroleum jelly fills all voids between the gears and pockets.

  2. Tighten the pump retaining bolts as follows
    1. For vehicles through 1993, tighten the M8 bolts to 18-22 ft. lbs. (25-30 Nm) and the M10 bolts to 30-40 ft. lbs. (40-55 Nm).
    2. For 1994-96 vehicles, tighten the four smaller bolts to 15-22 ft. lbs. (20-30 Nm) and the two larger retaining bolts to 6-11 ft. lbs. (8-15 Nm).

  3. If removed, install the engine oil cooler. Install the oil filter.

HAVE A OIL LEAK COMING FROM ABOVE THE OIL FILTER.


Has the oil filter just been replaced? Sometimes the old gasket sticks to the mounting area, causing leakage if the new filter is installed on top of it. It is also possible the gasket was for some reason missing on a new filter. Let me know if this is not the cause, I'll try to help further.

Oil leaking on front right side of the car near oil pan and oil filter


You need to clean the engine and then run the vehicle while watching the area. The most common failure is the oil sending unit located near the oil filter. I have also seen a leak develop between the oil pump housing, which is mounted directly behind the hamonic balencer and the engine block.
